Jack Osbourne Sacked For Having MS

Jack Osbourne claims he was fired from a US show after they discovered he was suffering from multiple sclerosis.

The TV star announced he was suffering from the condition last Sunday, revealing at one point he lost 60% vision in his right eye.

And he dropped a further bombshell when he appeared on his mother Sharon's The Talk series in America, claiming he was dropped from an unnamed reality series over fears about his diagnosis.

He said: "I had just booked a job right when I got diagnosed and unfortunately the company that hired me didn't think I could actually perform the job. Out of everything, that's what ticked me off the most, because it's like, 'Don't tell me what I can and cannot do!'"

And his furious mother revealed the company fired him via email.

She tweeted, "They said he was a liability and were so personable, sent an email to let us know."

Despite the career setback, Jack is confident he will win his battle against multiple sclerosis thanks to medical advances.

He told Piers Morgan's CNN show: "I've been told by all my doctors that if you are going to get MS, now is the best time to have it. There are, I think, two or three new drugs coming out within the next six months. I do believe there will be a solution in sight in my lifetime."
