Jack Osbourne Fired From TV Job After MS Diagnosis
71
Reality TV star and heir to a rock and roll legacy, Jack Osbourne, has revealed how he lost his US TV show Adrenalin Junkie after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. The son of Ozzy Osbourne this week revealed he was diagnosed with the incurable nerve condition three weeks after the birth of his daughter Pearl earlier this year. He revealed he had been fired from the show on mum Sharon Osbourne's US show, The Talk. "I had booked a job, right when I got diagnosed, and the company didn't think I could actually perform the job," he said on the show. "Out of everything, that's what has really ticked me off the most because it's like, 'Don't tell me what I can and cannot do'. "At no point did they call me. It was all through agents and lawyers I was offended by it." Osbourne previously spoke of his determination to overcome the illness, saying his new motto was "adapt and overcome."

    To have MS and be on a show called Adrenaline Junkie doesn't really go hand in hand. I don't disagree with the show but I don't get what happened to the days where people grow a spine and talk it out like civil human beings. All this lawyer and agent garbage is pathetic.

    They should look at how A&E delt with Patrick Swayze. First class all the way.

    You know something like that's gonna happen when you're the son of the guy who inhaled 3/4 of all the drugs that were in the 70. Gotta love Ozzy But it's a shame he seems a good guy, not the type of people who'd cause problems.

    Obviously it would be highly suggested he quit this show because of the type of show it was not going well for someone with MS, however, that is Jack's freaking decision to make.

    Thats a shame for the guy as i work with a woman who has it who is off quite alot but at least he wont have to worry about paying the bills due to his folks being totally loaded.

    i dont think neither him or any of his sisters got any complaints when it comes to their own wallets.

    They (TV network) obviously know nothing about MS.... And Jack is a good guy just finding his way.

    I think the show could actually be better tbh... "and as he tries to clim up this rock face his legs finally give out, can he claw back enough function to survive?"

    So in better words, he wasn't hired? God damn, these people are *****s, not hiring somebody just because he has MS!
