Veteran rock singer Ozzy Osbourne (75 years old) accused American rapper Kanye West (46 years old) of using his music without his consent. Osbourne doesn't want anything to do with him anymore.

West requested permission to use part of a live performance of the classic song “Iron Man” produced by Black Sabbath in 1983 without vocals, the British rock musician wrote on the “X” and “Instagram” platforms on the Internet. West was refused permission to subpoena “because he is anti-Semitic and has caused untold grief to many people.” However, the American musician used it at an event marking the release of an album this week.
“I don't want to be associated with this man!” Osborne got angry. West did not initially respond to the allegations on his social media accounts.
Rolling Stone reported that the guitar riff from “Iron Man” can be heard in West's song “Carnival.” This was also shown by online recordings of the event that Osborne criticized.

Kanye West, who has long called himself “Yee,” has repeatedly made anti-Semitic comments in recent years. Ask for forgiveness for this at Christmas. He added: “I sincerely apologize to the Jewish community for any unintended outburst resulting from my words or actions.” the rapper wrote in Hebrew on Instagram at the time. It was not his intention to hurt people or degrade them, and he regrets any pain he caused. (SAW/SDA/DPA)
