Sharon Osbourne broke down in tears on Loose Women today, after admitting that she tried to take her own life three years ago.
The 66-year-old, who says she “can’t live” without medication, revealed she was found by her rocker husband Ozzy, and rushed to the hospital.
Sharon said: “Three years ago, I had a very bad time in my life and I just thought I’m going to bail, I can’t take it anymore. I just can’t take the pressure. It’s not just me, many people feel this way.”
“My husband found me and took me to the hospital … yes, they [the kids] were terribly cross and heartbroken and frightened and everything that goes with it.”
The former X Factor judge – who is mum to Aimee, 35, Kelly, 34, and Jack, 33 – said she found perspective when she met two women who had lost their mothers to suicide while she was receiving treatment.
She said: “When I was in treatment, there was two girls whose mother had committed suicide – two separate girls – and the damage that was left for them. I would never do it again.”
Speaking about her mental health battle, Sharon said: “I’ve been on anti depressants for 23 years and different medications for my old head.”
“It’s like – I can’t live without medication because I become – I won’t get out of bed, I won’t talk to anyone. I can stay in bed for three days, don’t wash, don’t do anything. It’s like stop the world, I want to get off.”
