Sharon Osbourne Had a Secret Mental Breakdown Last Year
It’s been a tough few years for Sharon Osbourne.
Aside from discovering her husband’s affair and her subsequent (but brief) split with Ozzy Osbourne, the Hollywood matriarch just revealed that she suffered a mental breakdown last year that rendered her catatonic for days. Speaking on Season 7 premiere of The Talk, the 63-year-old said that she was even admitted to a psychiatric facility after she was hospitalized in May 2015.
“I had a complete and utter breakdown. I woke up in Cedars Sinai hospital and probably for three days, I knew nothing,” she shared. “My brain just shut down on me. My brain just totally fused, and I couldn’t cope with anything. My family put me into a facility, and in this facility, they diagnose you, there’s therapists, there’s psychiatrists and you do a lot of group therapy.”
According to Osbourne, the breakdown was triggered by stress and her overworked schedule. Now feeling a lot better, she noted that it’s important to focus on your mental health and seek help whenever possible.
“I feel now that I have got a grip on the problem that I have and I’m in control. It doesn’t control me,” she said. “If you have a bad leg, you tell everybody you have a bad leg. I just have a bad head.”
