Ozzy Osbourne purchased a $10 million mansion in Beverly Hills. Although he sold his previous home in 2013, the iconic singer and his wife spent the last two years renting other people’s homes. Ozzy’s newly purchased 5,680-square-foot mansion sits on a 17.760-square-foot lot, which is surrounded by wild rose and English ivy gardens.
In 2013, Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne sold their 11,000 square-feet estate to Jessica Simpson. As they also sold their other Hollywood Hills home, the Osbournes have been renting for nearly two years.
Late last month, the couple found their perfect home in Beverly Hills. As reported by Forbes, Ozzy’s $10 million mansion was previously owned by award winning producer Alan Ladd.

LoudWire reports Ozzy’s $10 million mansion features five bedrooms, several fireplaces, a “chef’s kitchen,” a grotto-like pool, and a separate guest house with its own garage.
A native of Birmingham, England, John Michael “Ozzy” Osbourne dropped out of high school and had several run-ins with the law during his youth. However, his passion for music eventually led him to join a blues-inspired band called Earth.
After changing their style to appeal to an increasing demand for hard rock and heavy metal music, Earth captured the attention of a record producer.

As reported by Biography, the band was forced to change their name, as Earth was already being used by another band. They eventually chose the name Black Sabbath, which was the name of a 1963 horror film anthology.
Black Sabbath released seven albums between 1970 and 1976. However, they saw their greatest success with the release of Paranoid in 1971.
Ozzy Osbourne left Black Sabbath to pursue a solo career in 1978. Although his solo albums, Blizzard of Ozz, His Diary of a Madman, and Live and Loud, were a huge success Ozzy returned to Black Sabbath in 1997.
Although there is no question that Ozzy Osbourne is a uniquely talented singer, he is notorious for his rebellious streak.
Biography described the singer as “the troubled loner, the social misfit, the angry rebel.” Through the years, Ozzy was accused promoting satanic symbolism and biting the heads off a bat and a dove.
Although he played a psychotic rebel onstage, a reality program, titled The Osbournes, proved Ozzy had a kinder and much gentler side.
Through the program’s four-season run, Ozzy Osbourne often appeared to be confused and clumsy. However, his love for his wife and children was clear to see.
Ozzy recently purchased a $10 million home, but he said he has no intention of settling down anytime soon. As reported by Daily Mail, Black Sabbath recently confirmed one final album and tour.
