Ozzy Osbourne’s Son Wants Out

LOS ANGELES (CN) - Ozzy Osbourne's son Jack, of the MTV reality series "The Osbournes," filed four lawsuits demanding dissolution of production companies he owns with two partners and longtime friends.

In his four lawsuits in Superior Court, Osbourne claims he is minority shareholder in Schweet Dogs, RJB Post, Three Little Birds Music and Wow Pharmaceuticals.

He accused majority owners Robert Worsoff, Brian Wendel and Fire Lake Inc. of taking "exorbitant salaries" from the companies without offering him similar payouts.

In each lawsuit, Osbourne claims breach of fiduciary duty and demands an accounting and involuntary dissolution of the companies. All the lawsuits were filed Monday.

"The Osbournes" ran for three seasons, beginning in 2002. It chronicled the drug-addled daily life of Black Sabbath front man Ozzy Osbourne, his wife and manager, Sharon Osbourne, and two of their three kids, Jack and his sister Kelly. The couple's daughter Aimee refused to take part in the show.

In 2012, Jack Osbourne, Worsoff, Wendel and Schweet Dogs executive produced "Alpha Dogs," a 16-part National Geographic series about the training of police dogs.

Osbourne starred in his own reality series, "Jack Osbourne: Adrenaline Junkie," for four seasons beginning in 2005.

Osbourne is represented by Nicholas Rozansky with Ezra Brutzkus Gubner in Woodland Hills.
