Sharon Osbourne 'heartbroken' that kids Jack and Kelly followed Ozzy into drug, alcohol addiction
Sharon Osbourne has confessed that she was left heartbroken when her children went through the same alcohol and drug addiction as their father, Ozzy Osbourne.
The 71-year-old 'Black Sabbath' singer had gone through alcohol and drug abuse for around four decades but has been clean since 2012. Sharon had hoped that her children — son Jack and daughter Kelly — would learn from their father's mistakes but unfortunately, they too were snared in the same trap.
Both Kelly and Jack have battled with addictions from prescription pills to alcohol. Sharon told the Daily Star, "We've had this family history with drugs, it's not a good one. I felt that they've seen their dad go through so much, my kids, that they won't touch it – well they did and it ended badly with each of them. It did break my heart."
Daily Mail reported that 34-year-old Jack had to go to rehab when he was 17 after he became addicted to the painkiller OxyCotin. He has been clean since 2003. His sister, 35-year-old Kelly revealed that she has been admitted to rehab around seven times for her drinking and drug use.
She also admitted that she has been to two mental institutions and has been sober since 2017. Sharon opening up about the substance abuse that her family has dealt with after our earlier report that Kristen Bell's husband Dax Shepard said he would allow his children to try hallucinogenic drugs.
The 45-year-old Shepard,, who has two daughters — seven-year-old Lincoln and five-year-old Delta — insisted that he would permit his children to experiment when they are older because of their "creative advantages".
While speaking on Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard, he was asked by Rob Lowe about the issue and he said, "I'm so glad you just said that because I was going to ask you the same thing. I am pro my children doing mushrooms at some point."
Sharon did object to his comments and added, "Call me old fashioned, I don't like it. Not at all, not to just entertain yourself. If it's under medical supervision, fine."
Shepard said during the interview. "I do think... well, there are a lot of different studies that have pretty conclusively shown that you have long-lasting creative advantages, right."
"Like if you would've done mushrooms... that lasts. So I guess yeah, I'm going to tell my girls to do shrooms and to smoke pot and to drink and to just don't do cocaine or opioids," he shared.
Recently, Sharon had to defend herself after being called out for going under the knife numerous times. We had previously reported that Sharon insisted there is "nothing wrong" with having plastic surgery if you are unhappy with your appearance and have the money for it.
The former 'X Factor' judge, now 67, has had several procedures over the last two decades and recently underwent a painful fourth facelift that left her in agony after the surgery. However, she's still very much for the operations.
"People ask me about plastic surgery, and you know what? If you're not happy with the way you look and you have the money, change it! What's the big deal?" she said during an interview with Watch magazine. "As long as you don't look like you sucked on something to make your lips big, there's nothing wrong with it," she added.
