Sharon Osbourne quit America’s Got Talent after NBC fired Jack

Update from Sharon Osbourne on Twitter:
Please don’t misunderstand. I love NBC/AGT with all my heart and will of course finish out the season. It is still one of the best shows on tv.

Osbourne has quit America’s Got Talent after accusing NBC of axing her son Jack from a new show when they discovered he had multiple sclerosis.

The outspoken 59-year-old revealed last month that she was leaving the telly talent show, on US network NBC, in a cryptic tweet to fellow judge Howard Stern.

She wrote: “My darling Howard Stern, money is not the reason I’m not returning to (America’s Got Talent), it’s because…”

But the mum failed to elaborate on the situation.

Now she has told the New York Post her decision came after Jack was allegedly dropped from another NBC show, Stars Earn Stripes — which pits celebrities against one another in military training exercises — when he went public with his health battle.

She blasted: “I just can’t be fake. It’s discrimination, and it was badly handled.”

Producer David Hurwitz told a press conference in Los Angeles last month that former Adrenaline Junkie star Jack was never officially hired.

But Sharon and Jack allege they were moving forward with the TV show plans on a verbal commitment.
