Sharon Osbourne has revealed that her former rival Simon Cowell reached out to her when her son Jack was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Earlier this year (12), the reality TV matriarch attacked the music mogul for negative comments he made about her - but after a touching gesture on Cowell's behalf, the bickering pals have made up. In June (12), Osbourne's son Jack was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and in the midst of an outpouring of support from friends and fans, it came as a shock when Cowell contacted her. The America's Got Talent judge reveals, "One of the first people to reach out to me when Jack was diagnosed with MS was Simon. And that meant very much to me. Because it meant maybe he loves me, just a little bit... We're like brother and sister. We row, then we make up. We love each other, then we fight, then we love each other, then we fight." The pair is on such amicable terms that Cowell has hired Osbourne to return to the UK version of The X Factor, after she sat at the judges' table for the first four seasons. She joins panelist Louis Walsh for the judges' house rounds in Las Vegas this series.
