LOS ANGELES – If the rumors are true, Sharon Osbourne told America’s Got Talent to shove it because NBC fired her son Jack because of his illness.
The New York Post claims that Jack, who recently announced he has MS, was according to Sharon, fired by email from the show ‘Stars Earn Stripes’, a reality show about famous people submitting to military training.
The directors of the show allegedly feared Jack wouldn’t be physically adapt to complete the training now that he has MS, something NBC denies.
It’s the denial that has Sharon Osbourne seen red, enough so quit as judge from the popular “America’s Got Talent” show.
“I simply can’t fake this. This is pure discrimination and it was badly handled,” said a furious Sharon.
NBC strongly denies the star’s allegations saying Sharon’s story isn’t true.
Producer David Hurwitz said: “Jack was just someone we had contact with”.
Jack and Sharon both admit that no contract was signed between Jack and NBC but state that a verbal agreement had already been finalized.
Sharon says that Jack wasn’t doing it for the money. “He simply wanted something to look forward too since he got diagnosed with MS,” said the outspoken Osbourne.
A few weeks ago Sharon Osbourne posted a tweet saying she had enough of being a judge on the reality show but did not specify a reason for her departure then.
