Ozzy Osbourne - Ozzy Osbourne Regrets Fatherhood Mistakes

Ozzy Osbourne regrets being a bad father when he was younger.

The 62-year-old rocker - who has two children, Jessica and Louis, from his first marriage to Thelma Riley and three kids, Jack, Kelly and Aimee, with his second wife Sharon Osbourne - battled drink and drug addictions for the majority of his career which affected his parental duties but Jack says his father has endeavoured to make it up to his kids.

He explained: "Dad was in a really bad way but he's come so far since then. Just because he wasn't a good father doesn't mean he isn't now a good father. He is. And he regrets that he's wasted a lot of time in his life, being crazy."

Jack has produced a new documentary 'God Bless Ozzy Osbourne' about his dad and he admitted he was tired of the perception of his father as a drug addicted rocker and wanted to show the real Ozzy, who has suffered from low self-esteem and loves his family.

He added to the Daily Telegraph newspaper: "I was getting frustrated with people's perception of him. He has really changed and turned his life around and pretty much become a different person at the age of 60 - not many people do that.

"The whole point was to cut through the mystique and show at the core who he is, and what kind of life he's led. In fact, the original title we had for the film was 'John' which is his real name.

"He was very unsure of himself [when he was younger] but was suddenly thrust into the limelight - an incredibly successful musician who developed a fantastically entertaining way of being self destructive to mask his insecurity."
