Caring Mtv Cameramen Risked Their Jobs To Help Jack

MTV cameramen risked losing their jobs when they took THE OSBOURNES star JACK OSBOURNE to one side and urged him to "mellow out".

The teenager, whose drug and drink problems forced him to check into rehab earlier this year (03), was spiraling out of control on the reality TV show - and no one was around to help him.

Suicidal Jack feared his mother SHARON would die as her colon cancer took hold, and his father OZZY was suffering a mental breakdown.

He says, "At the time it was getting really bad mum was pretty sick too, dad was a wreck. There was no one putting the reigns on.

"Sometime the crew guys would take me aside and tell me to mellow out for like a week or so but they're not allowed to (interfere)."
