X Factor Fires Sharon Osbourne After Profanity Filled Stern Interview

X Factor UK drama! Sharon Osbourne was supposed to join the X Factor UK panel as a “fifth judge” once the live shows began. However, she was fired, reports the Sun, after a profanity laced tirade during an interview on Howard Stern’s Sirius talk show.

A source revealed: “Sharon is going to try and spin this as her choice to leave, but after that disgusting interview there was no way Simon Cowell or the executives would have her back on the panel.

“Not only did she make shocking attacks on him, she slagged off the show itself and the lovely members of the public who decide to audition. Good riddance to her.”

Sharon went rogue during an interview with US shock jock Howard Stern, saying Cowell is a “f***ing pain in the ass.”

Stern asked her which of them {the judges} she would save on a sinking boat.

She replied: “We would put a f***ing brick around his neck and throw him over. I will drown you mother f***er. Absolutely…he’s gone.”

Asked why her contract changed this year so she didn’t appear at the auditions, she blasted: “Oh f*** I don’t have to have those kids singing in my face.

“Those little sh***. They all suck. It is like hey is this f***ing karaoke or what?”

Stern, who has his own issues with Simon Cowell, must have loved winding Sharon up. 

Both Sharon and Lois Walsh were slated to return to the series this year after signing multi-year contracts. But Simon decided to take the panel in a different direction. inviting Sharon to judge the live shows was seemingly a way to fulfill her contract, while still changing the panel up. But apparently, the bad blood remained.

As the Sun source said, Sharon posted an announcement on her Facebook, announcing she quit using the flakey excuse that she would feel “odd” messing with the panel’s already developed chemistry. If you say so Sharon.

  1. Sharon and Howard both were AGT judges, but they never overlapped AFAIK.

  2. Thank goodness for that…I can actually watch this series then, yay!!
    ETA…have only watched the first 2 episodes so far, but think Louis is doing really well, and looking great with it!!!

  3. Sharon Osbourne is one of the most despicable women on the planet.
