Sharon Osbourne shocked fans of America’s Got Talent last season when she announced that she would not be returning to the talent competition. But now, Sharon is once again ready to shock her fans, as she recently admitted to having undergone a double mastectomy, in a new interview!
Sharon Osbourne, the beloved former judge on America’s Got Talent is certainly no stranger to cancer, as she successfully defeated colon cancer about 10 years ago. Since then, Osbourne is not taking any chances when it comes to cancer, as she recently revealed she had already undergone a double mastectomy, even though she did not have breast cancer at the time.
In a new interview with a UK magazine, Osbourne reveals her reason: “As soon as I found out I had the breast cancer gene, I thought ‘the odds are not in my favor,’” adding: “I decided to just take everything off,” as she did not want to live worrying about when she would get breast cancer.
Sharon had the procedure done last summer, which was a no-brainer decision for her. “For me, it wasn’t a big decision. I want to be around for a long time and be a grandmother to Pearl,” adding that it was: “a decision I made that’s got rid of this weight that I was carrying around.”
