Osbournes Beg For Jack's Dignity
The Osbournes are begging the press to allow son Jack to complete his rehabilitation in private - after over zealous photographers wrecked a good start at the California facility by trespassing to take pictures of the troubled teen.
Jack's mom Sharon admits she was upset when news of her son's rehab spell leaked out - but now press interest in the teenager is wrecking his recovery.
Sharon says, "We tried to keep it private - to give him his dignity - but unfortunately it got out."
"Jack was doing really, really good but now his spirit has been a bit down because they found people on the property that had jumped over the fence and the police had to come.
"It's not a circus, he's a teenager and he knows he's messed up, but he's in the right place and he's fixing it."
Jack, 17, who had to wait a week to get a room because the facility was full, checked into rehab to help him control his problems with pills, marijuana and beer.
Meanwhile, his worried mother, who has just beaten colon cancer, admits the new Osbournes crisis has made her think about her failures as a mother.
She adds, "I'm not taking all the blame but I must have had something to do with it, he's my son. So something I was doing wasn't 100 per cent. It's a learning curve for him and for me."
