Sharon Osbourne in Family Feud With Brother She Calls "Weak"

Don’t expect a warm and fuzzy moment between Sharon Osbourne and her older brother any time soon. The Talk co-host is in a bitter feud with sibling David Arden.


According to The Mirror, Osbourne and Arden had been at odds for 15 years. They started speaking again when Osbourne’s kids became teenagers, but had another falling out following the death of their father, Don Arden. Mrs. O stated:

I'm fuming. We call him Fredo after the weak son in The Godfather who sold the family out – that’s my brother. I’ve not spoken to him in nine years but he pops his head up every now and then. It seems all he wants is our money. I want absolutely nothing to do with him.

Reportedly, the second rift had to do with where their father would be buried. According to Osbourne:

Yes, we did fight over the funeral. My father had an affair for 25 years with a woman in America but never divorced. And my brother wanted my father buried next to my mother in a non-Jewish graveyard and I said ‘no’.
