Launch.com reports that Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne are being sued by Hollywood producer Gary Binkow (Cider House Rules, Bourne Identity), who claims it was he who conceived and developed the “real-life” idea of the Osbournes television show in 1998.
Binkow alleges that he sealed the deal with Sharon Osbourne in 2000, in which they apparently began discussions with Miramax about producing the show. He also cites a treatment, called Ozzie and Harried, and began preparations for a pilot.
The suit, which was filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court on July 25th, claims breach of oral contract, breach of implied contract and fraud.
