Sharon Osbourne missed her husband’s concert in Mexico over the weekend after she forgot her passport.
Sharon and Ozzy flew to Mexico City on a private jet on Friday, but she did not realize her passport was at home until they touched down over the border.
“I was on that plane, and we landed in Mexico City at, like, twenty to six in the evening on Friday and I realized I had forgotten my passport,” she said. “So the first thing you think of is, ‘Oh. If I sit here, I can get somebody to bring me my passport. I’ll sit here for five hours. We’re in the airport, and then I can go through immigration. Well, no. I couldn’t. Ozzy had a show to get to and all of the guys were going to the show, he had to leave me. And so I’m there with the pilot, and then we were saying, ‘Somebody will come with the passport.’ They said, ‘No you can’t. It doesn’t work that way. You have to leave the country.’ But you can’t get on a plane without your passport! This was a private plane, but if you want to go on a commercial airline, you need your passport to get back to America, so the airlines wouldn’t take me. So I’m stuck.”
Sharon was almost place in a “holding tank” by Mexican authorities, but they finally agreed to let her private jet take her back home to Los Angeles. Unfortunately the airport had already closed, so she had to sit on the runway until the next day.
Sharon said she eventually landed in Los Angeles Saturday afternoon.
