Sharon Osbourne was 'fat-shamed' by her own brother David Arden, says she hasn't spoken to him in 13 years
It seems like the feud between Sharon Osbourne and her brother, David Arden, has escalated over her accusing him of making cruel comments over her weight when they were younger. The two have not spoken for around 13 years. Speaking on the chat show 'The Talk', the 67-year-old shared, "I used to get fat-shamed by my brother. [He] used to get his friends to join in. It sticks with you," reports Mirror.
"At times I was bigger than others. My weight has always [gone up and down], and that’s it," she revealed. "It’s been going on for hundreds of years, people going on about people’s weight. And it never will end," Sharon shared. Sharon and her brother David had a falling out in 2007 over where to lay their father, the legendary music manager Don Arden, to rest. Don had worked with bands such as Black Sabbath, ELO, and the Small Faces. Sharon, who is married to Black Sabbath co-founder Ozzy Osbourne, 71. Sharon had earlier claimed that she has given David approximately half a million pounds in cash over the years.
She had once shared, "I think he looks at me and my family, all successful, and it eats away at him." The former X Factor judge revealed, "It seems all he wants is our money. I want absolutely nothing to do with him. David knows that everything is going to my kids, but he seems to think he can get a few hundred grand out of my husband in his will... even though he’s said horrible things about Ozzy behind his back. It’s disgusting," she revealed. David had also shared that Sharon looks "unrecognizable" due to all the cosmetic surgery that she has had. Sharon had also banned her children Aimee, 36, Kelly, 35, and Jack, 34 from speaking to David ever again.
We had previously reported that Sharon Osbourne had commented on singer Adele's drastic weight loss. While Sharon has always been vocal about her battle with weight over the years, she did not hold back while talking about Adele's body on 'The Talk'. She had said, "When these women say that they are really happy in their body I don't believe them. My body was really, really big but I wasn't happy," the Sun reports. "Sure on the surface, but at night in bed alone I was very unhappy."
While referring to Adele, Sharon shared, "I totally understand with Adele. It was her time to lose weight that's all in her journey and her life. She must have felt you know what I am going to try and lose weight for wherever reason - health I am sure. You know what she looks absolutely fantastic," Sharon said. "I am happy for her and everybody should be happy for her because it was her choice. She didn't do it for anybody else but herself. And so everybody should be happy for her."
However, Sharon's comments left fans and followers riled up and upset over what they called "shallow" statements. One such user shared, "@MrsSOsbourne To say that overweight women don't like people's weight loss is so shallow. That sounds like something Trump would say. We should start talking about men and the way they look. Parents generally do a very poor job of teaching their sons how to look their best."
