On 28 February 2020, 60 years old singer Marie Osmond while co-hosting CBS's The Talk, said:
"I'm not leaving any money to my children. Congratulations, kids!!!"
She added, My husband and I decided... I think you do a great disservice to your children to just hand them a fortune because you take away the one most important gift you can give your children, and that's the ability to work.
Continuing, You see it a lot in rich families, where the kids, they don't know what to do, and so they get in trouble. Let them be proud of what they make, and I'm going to give mine to my charity.
While many agreed with her decision, wife of three times Grammy winner Ozzy Osbourne's wife disagreed with Osmonds' statement and responded:
"Everybody is different, and I just know that my husband's body of work that he's written and kept us all in the lifestyle that we love goes to my children, and his name and likeness goes to my children…"
'I don't want somebody that never met my husband owning his name and likeness and selling T-shirts everywhere and…no; it stays in the Osbourne family.'
Similarly, other hosts, including Sheryl Underwood and Carnie Wilson, were not on the same page with Marie Osmond.
