Television star Sharon Osbourne verbally attacked music mogul Simon Cowell in a recent interview.


Speaking to US radio host Howard Stern on September 4, 2018, the 65-year-old music manager said Cowell is obsessed with having his face seen on American television.

Sharon, known for being so outspoken, took issue with Cowell’s becoming a judge on "America’s Got Talent."

“Simon loves to be on TV. And he wasn't on TV in America and he will do whatever he has to do to get that [expletive] fat face on TV,” she said.

She also didn’t mince words when asked who she would save from a sinking ship.

“We would put a [expletive] brick around his neck and throw him over. I will drown you [expletive],” she said, referring to the 58-year-old head judge on “The X Factor.”

Sharon is one of the original judges on the show, along with Cowell, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger. But this year’s "X Factor" saw the departure of Sharon, Louis and Nicole. They were replaced by Robbie Williams, his wife Ayda Field and One Direction singer Louis Tomlinson.

Louis and Sharon appeared on "The X Factor" when it began in 2004. Sharon left in 2008 and was replaced by Cheryl.


She returned a few years later to replace Tulisa in 2013 and then came back again when she signed a three-year deal in 2016.


Louis has remained throughout, except for the 2015 season when he was replaced by DJ Nick Grimshaw. He returned again the following year alongside Sharon and Nicole.

During her interview with Howard, Sharon also claimed that her contract contains a clause that states her salary must equal the highest-paid judges.

“So Simon and I have a clause in my contract, 'favourite nations'. Simon goes to the press and goes, 'This is the best £10 million I have ever spent. So I go, 'I have favourite nations, where is my [expletive] £10 million? I have a clause'. I am a businesswoman. But after I just said I am going to tie a brick around his neck and let him drown and now I am talking about it, he will be [expletive],” she said.
