Sharon Osbourne has reportedly underwent a double mastectomy, calling the decision a no-brainer, after learning that she carries a gene that increases the risk of developing breast cancer.
The information comes from Hello! Magazine, and in it Osbourne says she didn’t want to live the rest of her life with that shadow hanging over me.
It’s not the first scare for the 60-year-old.
The former America’s Got Talent judge famously battled colon cancer 10 years ago and revealed that since the odds are not in her favor, she decided to just take everything off.
According to People Magazine, Sharon underwent the 13-hour procedure last summer. It appears that the first sign of trouble started small, after realizing one of her breast implants were leaking.
She added that she doesn’t even think of her new breasts in a nostalgic way, saying that just wanted to be able to live her life without fear. Plus, she wants to be around for as long as possible for her newest grandchild, 6-month-old Pearl born to her son Jack.
As previously reported, Jack is currently battling multiple sclerosis.
