Sharon Osbourne married rocker Ozzy after she was spurned by his Black Sabbath bandmate Tony Iommi, her brother claims.

David Arden reveals the manager-turned-talent show host pursued Iommi for

nine years, before turning her attentions to frontman Ozzy.

Arden - whose dad Don was Black Sabbath's manager - says: "She followed Tony around everywhere like a lovesick puppy. She adored him and was obsessed with him. Everyone knew, even Ozzy.

"The truth is Ozzy was way down on her list. Sharon had no interest. In fact she always referred to Ozzy as 'the wanker'.

"When the label was having hard times, she actually tried to get Ozzy fired."
