Ozzy Osbourne‘s eldest daughter Aimee has spoken of her decision to not take part in her family’s hit reality show, The Osbournes

‘The remaining exclusive merchandise from my past tours is now available online,’ writes Ozzy on Twitter. ‘April is the month #ParkinsonsAwarenessMonth therefore 10% of the proceeds from ALL sales will go directly to @MichaelJFoxOrg for research on #Parkinsons (sic)’.
Clothing, books, posters and other accessories are available for sale.

Osbourne was set to appear at SXSW 2020 in support of the world premiere screening of the two-hour documentary special, Biography: The Nine Lives of Ozzy Osbourne. The documentary explores the career of Osbourne, and is set to air later this summer of A&E.
