Sharon Osbourne has slammed an American radio DJ, after he falsely claimed her husband Ozzy Osbourne had died after his quad bike accident last month (DEC03).

Former Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy broke six ribs, a collarbone and a neck vertebra in the accident on his English country estate and spent weeks in hospital.

But Cincinnati, Ohio, presenter DJ PUDDING told listeners the rocker had died.

After finding out about the spoof, Sharon says, "This guy is from a station in Cincinnati and he put out on the air the other day that Ozzy had died. He knew he hadn't, but he thought it was amazingly funny to do something like that.

"I just wanted to say, Pudding, more appropriately your name should be TURD, so I can flush you down my toilet! And I'm going to cover you with toilet paper before I flush you!"
