Sharon Osbourne has disclosed the real  reason she won’t be returning to “AGT.”

The “America’s Got Talent” judge revealed to the New York Post she won’t return due to the maltreatment of her son, Jack. Sharon said Jack was fired from the reality show “Stars Earn Stripes” because of his recently revealed multiple sclerosis.

“I just can’t be fake,” she said. “It’s discrimination, and it was badly handled.”

She explained Jack was removed from the reality series by an email two days before he was scheduled to report to work.

Despite being under contract Sharon told the New York Post,“It’s time to move on. They can’t make me do something I don’t want to do. All they can do is stop me from being a judge on another network for five years.”
