Osbournes Going to Court & Not For Fighting With Their Neighbors?





Gary Binkow, an LA-based producer, filed a lawsuit yesterday (July 25) against Americaís new favorite husband and wife, Ozzy and Sharon. In the suit, Binkow says that the Osbournes stole his idea for their record-breaking MTV reality show, claiming that he repeatedly discussed ìa real-life docu-sitcomî with the couple and Miramax TV execs from 1999-2000. Also included in the court papers is what Binkow claims is an original treatment for the show, which was registered with the Writers Guild of America in January of 2000. According to Billboard, a spokesperson for Sharon Osbourne said that previous published reports made it clear that Binkow was not the showís creator, but otherwise declined comment. The Tripwire will keep you posted on this, as well as other legal battles (namely Love vs. Grohl and Novoselic) as details arise.
