Sharon Osbourne Shreds Simon Cowell For Firing Her From ‘The X Factor’ Because He ‘Thought I Was Too Old’

Sharon Osbourne has dropped her share of bombshells on “The Talk”, but she had a big one to unveil on Thursday’s edition of the Global daytime talk show.

According to the 66-year-old host, Simon Cowell cost her a gig as a judge on Fox’s surprise hit “The Masked Singer” before firing her from U.K. singing competition “The X Factor”, and explains the shocking reason why.

“I’ve turned down to do the judge on the ‘Masked Singer,’” Osbourne told her co-hosts, who audibly gasp at the news.

“I was signed on to do another show at the time. I was signed to go to England, and then Simon Cowell changed his mind and thought I was too old,” she continued. “I was under contract and couldn’t do it.”

She added: “Simon goes, ‘She’s old. We need somebody young.’ So if you want young, fire yourself and get rid of those man [boobs].”
