  1. LOS ANGELES - Reality television star Jack Osbourne, son of rocker Ozzy Osbourne and "America's Got Talent" judge Sharon Osbourne, has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, celebrity magazine People reported on Sunday.
    Osbourne, 26, who welcomed daughter Pearl with his fiancée, Lisa Stelly, in April, was given the news of his diagnosis two weeks after his daughter's birth.
    "I was just angry and frustrated and kept thinking, 'Why now?'" Osbourne told People. "I've got a family and that's what's supposed to be the most important thing."
    Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease that affects the central nervous system -- the brain and spinal cord -- and can affect muscle control, strength, vision, balance, thinking and feeling.

    Osbourne, the youngest of Ozzy and Sharon's three children, shot to fame as the rebellious teenager alongside his sister Kelly in the MTV reality TV show "The Osbournes" in 2002, a fly-on-the-wall series following Ozzy and his family on their day-to-day lives.
    The young star, who has been in rehab for drug abuse in the past, cleaned up his act and starred in his own show in 2005, "Jack Osbourne: Adrenaline Junkie," which saw Osbourne undertaking various extreme sports around the world.

    That's sad... Best wishes to him.
  2. The hell? You can't heal from that disease.. Shit happens is such a stupid thing to say.

    Shame on you bro, for real.
  3. Poor guy. Hope he'll be alright.
  4. I think this is really sad news for the guy. As full respect to the guy yes he had drug issues in the past but look at his father figure Ozzy who wouldn't have had drug issues if ur dad set that example to u.

    However he cleaned up his act and made something of himself and bettered himself as a person and seemed to become a genuinely great person so I feel this is sad news and my heart and wishes go out to the guy and I wish him all the best.
  5. I loved Jacks adrenaline junkie show. Sad news.
  6. Got a friend of the family with that, it's pretty serious business.
