London, Aug 24 : Sharon Osbourne says she hates getting in a car with husband Ozzy because he drives like he’s riding a “horse”.
The “America’s Got Talent” judge, 57, dreads getting into a car with her 61-year-old rocker husband – who only passed his test late last year – because he can’t control his breaks, reports contactmusic.com.
“He’s got a lead foot on that break and that means I get a bad neck each time I’m in the car with him. I’m up and down so much that it feels like I’m on a horse rather than in a car,” she said.
Although Ozzy only got behind the wheel later in life, Sharon says he is now obsessed with motor vehicles and has even treated himself to a sports car.
“He never used to be interested in them but now he reads all the car magazines. He buys driving gloves and he’s even bought himself a few flash cars like a Ferrari and a Jag,” she said.
Ozzy finally got his hands on his licence in 2009 – 35 years after his first attempt.
The former Black Sabbath star took his first driving exam in 1974 but he can’t remember how many times he failed.
“I’ve lost count how many times I messed it up. I remember one time I was doing the three-point turn and I passed out because I’d been to the doctor’s earlier and got some Valium for my nerves,” he said.
“Some examiners would say, ‘I’m not even getting in the car with you’,” he added.
