LONDON » Sharon Osbourne says she had a double mastectomy after learning she carries a gene that increases the risk of developing breast cancer.

Osbourne told Hello! magazine that “I didn’t want to live the rest of my life with that shadow hanging over me.”

She added: “It’s not ‘pity me,’ it’s a decision I made that’s got rid of this weight that I was carrying around.”

Jack Osbourne, 26, was recently diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
