Ozzy Osbourne's posh Beverly Hills neighbourhood is often a mess around Halloween - because he's always involved in egg-and-flour battles with children out trick-or-treating.

The British rocker enjoys indulging in the messy battles with local kids - much to the horror of his wife SHARON.

She says, "My husband likes to get really involved - overly involved. So kids usually come up to our house and he'll pelt them with flour and eggs and it's messy.

"But he does give out candy afterwards!"
