The Osbourne family has had its share of troubles in the past and some of them really took their toll. But that was in the past. The present, until just recently, was a story of success, with every family member living the good life. But the family was struck with yet another challenge, as Jack Osbourne revealed for People his multiple sclerosis diagnosis.
Drug and alcohol addiction was common within the members of this family, but as time went by, things started to look brighter for Ozzy, his wife Sharon, daughter Kelly and son Jack. In fact, Jack Osbourne grew up to be quite a handsome man and as of this year he even became a dad. At 26 years, Jack Osbourne has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, news that literally shocked him.
In an exclusive interview with People, Jack Osbourne and his mother, Sharon Osbourne talked about the multiple sclerosis diagnosis. Jack explained it was a shock he had trouble dealing with. Not to mention the diagnosis was set only two weeks after he got the best news in his life, as him and his fiancée Lisa Stelly became parents for the first time.
“I was just angry and frustrated and kept thinking, ‘Why now?’ I’ve got a family and that’s what’s supposed to be the most important thing” said the 26-year-old.
In an interview with Hello!, Sharon almost couldn’t fight back the tears as she talked about Jack’s diagnosis. “I kept thinking: ‘What did I do wrong? What did I eat or drink when I was pregnant? I feel like it’s somehow my fault”.
Ozzy also confessed the news troubled him. “If it was me, you’d think: ‘Ozzy had a reputation and it caught up with him’, but Jack is such a good guy” confessed the “Black Sabbath” star in the interview for Hello!.
Dealing with the diagnosis wasn’t easy, said Jack. In fact he confessed he got “really, really angry” when he was waiting for his final results. “Then I got sad for about two days, and after that I realized: ‘Being angry and upset is not going to do anything at this point, if anything it’s only going to make it worse”.
Multiple sclerosis is not a diagnosis so easy to overcome. The autoimmune disease impact the patient’s central nervous system, taking its toll both on the brain and the spinal cord.
