Ozzy Osbourne’s ex-mistress isn’t giving up without a fight.
Even though Ozzy went back to his wife, Sharon, his ex-mistress, Michelle Pugh, is still going after the family — by suing Ozzy’s daughter, Kelly.
Kelly hasn’t been exactly nice to Pugh, sure. She sent out some tweets shaming Pugh, who is a celebrity hairstylist, after it came to light that Ozzy had an affair with her.
“Anyone looking for cheap chunky LOW-lights a blow out and a b***job call [phone number],” Kelly tweeted. She followed it up with another tweet saying, “My father is almost 70 ever heard of elder abuse?”
Pugh says that since the tweets have gone out, she’s been slut-shamed and cyberbullied. She also claims she lost business because of the scandal. Her lawyer takes it even further and says the tweets are hate speech.
“Yes, we have free speech in this country, but this is more than free speech,” said Pugh’s lawyer. “This is hate speech, and it’s defamatory, and it incites bullying and discloses personal information, and that’s when it rises to a different level.”
Sorry, but while Kelly’s tweets may have been rude, they were definitely not hate speech. She has an issue with Pugh’s actions, not who she is as a person. For this to constitute hate speech, Kelly would have to be insulting Pugh’s race or religion or gender or something else that’s protected. Being pissed at the woman who almost broke up her parents’ marriage isn’t a hate crime.
Hopefully Pugh isn’t expecting a big financial windfall to come of this lawsuit. Kelly has plenty of resources to adequately defend herself, so I don’t see this going anywhere.
