It's no secret that both Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne have had some issues with Sharon's side of the family. Sharon's father Don Arden, who managed Black Sabbath early in the band's career, was apparently involved in shady business practices for many years.

The family drama hasn't stopped there, however, as evidenced in personal Facebook posts from Ozzy and Sharon directed at Sharon's brother David Levy.
