The former Black Sabbath frontman was heavily dependant on drugs and alcohol while Aimee, now 20, was growing up, and the youngster - who refused to appear in the family's reality TV show THE OSBOURNES - had to face some unpleasant scenes.
She recalls, "He was wasted. I said, 'Daddy, why are you doing this to us? Please don't do this.'
"He looked at me and said, 'F*** you. I work hard, I get bread for this family, I have the right to do whatever the f*** I like. Get away from me.'
"I remember knowing that this was not how daddies are meant to speak to their little girls. I just remember him being so hard, and I felt it was my fault for some weird reason. I also remember waking up and looking outside and seeing my dad in his underwear being handcuffed.
"It was very understandable how observant and smart I was at that age. I knew why he was arrested (for trying to strangle wife SHARON after a vodka binge). I knew everything that was going on."03/12/2003 13:49
