Sharon Osbourne says she was ‘heartbroken’ when her children did not learn from her husband Ozzy’s difficulties with drugs.
The Black Sabbath singer, 71, suffered with alcohol and drug abuse for four decades, but has been clean and sober since 2012.
Sharon, 67, admitted he hoped her children would learn from his mistakes, but instead followed him down the same path.
Both Kelly and Jack have struggled with addictions to prescription pills and alcohol.
Sharon said, as quoted in 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.’
Jack, 34, went to rehab aged 17 after he became addicted to the opioid painkiller OxyCotin, and has been clean since 2003.
Meanwhile, Kelly, 35, has revealed she has been admitted to rehab seven times for drink and drugs, as well as two mental institutions, and has been sober since 2017.
It came as Sharon also responded to comments made by Kristen Bell’s husband Dax Shepard who said he would let his children try hallucinogenic drugs.
The 45-year-old actor – who has daughters Lincoln, seven, and five-year-old Delta with his actor wife – insisted he would allow his kids to experiment when they’re older because of ‘creative advantages’.
‘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,’ he said when asked by Rob Lowe about the issue during this week’s episode of Armchair Expert With Dax Shepard.
But Sharon took issue with his comments, saying: ‘Call me old fashioned, I don’t like it. Not at all, not to just entertain yourself. If it’s under medical supervision, fine.’
Dax had said during his 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.’
It comes after Sharon revealed husband Ozzy is in ‘good spirits’ as he continues to battle Parkinson’s disease.
The rock legend announced in January he was fighting the disorder which began after he suffered a fall last year, and said he was on a ‘whole host’ of medications to treat nerve pain.
