Sharon, agent fight at LA restaurant.
Sharon Osbourne got into a fight with a talent agent at a restaurant late last week. The Osbournes matriarch and ICM agent Renee Tab had “a verbal dispute stemming from a raffle at an Osbourne party,” according to an LAPD spokesperson quoted in the LA Times. The agent won a $15,000 necklace even though she wasn’t invited to the party. Sharon says she was hit in the face and the agent says Sharon spit at her; a statement from Sharon’s agent said she was “viciously assaulted.” The LA Times reports that “[n]either woman was arrested, but both were interviewed and photographed. If investigators determine that a misdemeanor assault occurred, they will refer the case to the Los Angeles city attorney for possible prosecution.”
