Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne have been sued for $15 million by a clothing
manufacturer who claims the couple stole his T-shirt slogan: "F--k My
Family I'm Moving In With The Osbournes."
The suit, filed Tuesday (May 28) by T-Shirt Hell, Inc. in New York
District Court, alleges trademark infringement by the couple and other
associated business entities when they authorized the production and
sale of its own shirt with the catchphrase: "*&@# my family! I'm
moving in with...The Osbourne Family."
Court documents claim that representatives at Ozzy's label, Epic
Records, knew of the earlier shirt before making its own, producing as
evidence a series of email communications from March 2002 between an
employee at the label and T-Shirt Hell discussing the purchase of 40
of the shirts. The Osbournes' version was authorized for manufacturing
and sale in May, the suit alleges.
Epic Records and parent company Sony Music are also named in the suit,
