SHARON OSBOURNE SAYS she had a double mastectomy after learning she carries a gene that increases the risk of developing breast cancer.

Osbourne told Hello! magazine that:

I didn’t want to live the rest of my life with that shadow hanging over me.

The 60-year-old America’s Got Talent judge, who had colon cancer a decade ago, said that without the surgery “the odds are not in my favour.”

She added:

It’s not ‘pity me,’ it’s a decision I made that’s got rid of this weight that I was carrying around.

Osbourne, husband Ozzy and children Jack and Kelly became rock’s most famous clan thanks to MTV reality show The Osbournes a decade ago.

Jack Osbourne, 26, was recently diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
