Ozzy Osbourne’s Daughter Aimée Osbourne Narrowly Escapes Deadly Fire At Hollywood Recording Studio

Aimée Osbourne (ARO), the eldest daughter of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, is safe after narrowly escaping a fire at a recording studio in Hollywood, CA. The incident took place last night (May 19) and resulted in the death of one person.

Sharon Osbourne commented yesterday:

“Today my daughter @aro_officialmusic was working in a recording studio at this building with her producer. They are the lucky two that made it out alive.

It is utterly heartbreaking that someone lost their life today in this fire & we are sending our prayers to this person & their family.

What happened today was beyond horrific. I really hope moving forward that buildings like this are better regulated for fire safety.

This building was a creative hub for music in Hollywood, a space that should have been regulated for fire code. Producers, musicians, mixers & artists also lost all of their equipment.

Once again, our prayers go out to the family and friends of the person that lost their life to this senseless fire.”
