Former Guitarist Says Ozzy Didn’t Really Snort Ants

A memorable scene in Netflix’s Motley Crue film “The Dirt” shows Ozzy Osbourne drop to his knees and snort a line of ants through a straw. While the disturbing moment might have bolstered Osbourne’s image as an insane rocker, his former guitarist says it didn’t happen exactly as the movie portrayed it.
Jake E. Lee says he was at the hotel pool where the 1984 incident was purported to have taken place — and there were no ants around. However, the true story isn’t any less disgusting. “I was there, and I never saw ants,” Lee says. “He snorted a little spider.
There was not a trail of f***ing ants there. Tommy [Lee] says it, Nikki [Sixx] says it, Ozzy says it. I don’t care what the other guys say – there were no ants.”
