If you are a fan of Rock music, you might know who Ozzy Osbourne is. Ozzy is well known all over the world for being the lead singer of the famous band Black Sabbath. The band was particularly famous in the 70s when Rock n Roll music was at it’s peak.

Today, we take a look at his adopted son Elliot Kingsley and see how he is doing in life and what he is up to. But before that, let us recap the career of the legendary Ozzy Osbourne.

Who is Ozzy Osbourne?

Ozzy Osbourne’s real name is John Michael Osbourne. He was born in the year 1948 in England. His profession is a songwriter and he is also famous for his TV appearances. Ozzy became super famous when he rose through the ranks in the band named Black Sabbath in the 1970s. He was the lead vocalist of the band. Metal Music is heavily inspired by Satanism so, the Black Sabbath vocalist is merrily known as the “Prince of Darkness” by his fans. 

Osbourne is no longer linked to the band though. The band members departed with him in the year 1979 when he had problems related to alcohol and drugs. But Ozzy still went on to have a groundbreaking solo career with 12 Studio Albums. Out of them, the first 7 albums got Platinum certifications in the US.

Osbourne has since united again with the Black Sabbath members for different shows and tours. The band released their final album in 2017 and Ozzy helped them with it. They also went out for their final shows in 2017 and Ozzy was pretty helpful with that as well. The band has now successfully disbanded! Because Osbourne is one of the only few living icons in the Heavy Metal scene, his fans call him the Godfather of Metal which is a pretty cool title.

When we talk about success and awards, Osbourne is just on another level. His total album sales exceed 100 million. Ozzy got into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and is even in UK’s Music Hall of Fame twice; As a solo artist and as a band member. He has also gotten different types of awards and achievements. For instance, he got the Hollywood Walk of Fame and even Birmingham Walk of Stars.


Elliot Kingsley was born in the year 1966 to Thelma Riley. Thelma and Ozzy got into a relationship when Elliot was a child. We don’t know who Elliot’s actual biological father is though. It’s certainly not Ozzy! Anyway, Kingsley spent his childhood with his single mother till she married the English Singer. We don’t really have any idea about his education but we know that he has good enough qualifications.


Elliot actually has two half-siblings who are born from the relationship that his mother had with Ozzy. He has a half-sister named Jessica who was born just 1 year after his parent’s marriage. She was born in the UK. Right now, Jessica is a lowkey actress who has done some really cool jobs in different movies such as Yellowville and Sin Temer La Noche. Similarly, he has another half-sibling, a brother named Louis Osbourne. We don’t know much about him but he is quite big right now and the three children have a really great relationship with each other.

Rough Upbringing and Divorce

Elliot had a pretty rough childhood because of his parent’s divorce. He did not have a father figure for a long time and then Ozzy came into their life but the marriage between Ozzy and Thelma was soon starting to show cracks. Ozzy has even said that this marriage was a mistake on his part. In one of the interviews he did, Ozzy said that the marriage was a big mirage. The couple got divorced in 1982 almost after 11 years. Thelma later revealed that the reason why they got divorced was Ozzy’s constant struggle with drugs and alcohol. As Ozzy was in no form to raise the children, Thelma raised all three children by herself. After getting a divorce from Thelma, Ozzy married the British American TV personality, Sharon Osbourne. The two were married in 1982 at a very private wedding. 

Elliot’s Relationship Status

Over the years Elliot has managed to stay pretty lowkey. He just does not like the public attention so, he kind of is pretty secretive about everything. As of 2021, he is currently 50 years old and he might be married right now. We can only speculate as we don’t really know the full extent of his past relationships or the current ones.
