What's up with this? Sure those crazy Osbournes have had their Malibu beach house on and off the market for years now. (It's currently on at $10 million.) But now they've gone and listed their Hidden Hills main residence at $12,999,000.

Has a little financial darkness fallen on the prince? Some think so. The U.K.'s Daily Mail points to a tax lien against the aging heavy metalist and his self-proclaimed shopaholic wife, which, the paper says, could result in the loss of one of their seven homes. It's hard to imagine that two years of unpaid taxes totaling $1.8 million could topple heavy metal's golden couple, whose net worth was estimated at $147 million in 2009, but who's to say?

A few months ago, Sharon Osbourne tweeted: "You can't rely on anyone but yourself. You have to be on top of your own business affairs. My fault ... lesson learned." Hmmmm, sounds like a business manager about to have his head bitten off. Oh wait, that's Ozzy's thing, and that was a mistake, really.
