Ozzy's Big Payday

(E!) Being called a freak may not be such a bad thing after all. Ozzy Osbourne has accepted undisclosed damages and an apology from Britain's Daily Star over a story alleging he collapsed twice before hosting February's Brit Awards, creating behind-the-scenes chaos for the major U.K. music ceremony.

In the article titled "Ozzy's Freak Show," the tabloid also claimed the 59-year-old rocker was in such a poor state that he had to be transported around the show on an electric buggy and that event organizers held last-minute discussions to determine whether he should be allowed to carry on his emcee duties.

"The claimant is a highly successful touring artist who has just completed a sell-out world tour," John Kelly, Osbourne's attorney, told the London High Court today. "The publication of false allegations that the claimant was in such a poor state of health that he was incapable of hosting an awards ceremony...are extremely serious."
