Jack Osbourne Speaks Out Over Rehab

Troubled teen JACK OSBOURNE has spoken out about the drink and drugs problems that led to his admission into rehabilitation last week (begs21APR03).

The 17-year-old son of former BLACK SABBATH rocker OZZY was admitted to the LAS ENCINAS clinic in Pasedena, California - after falling into a hedonistic lifestyle following the success of his family's reality show THE OSBOURNES.

In an interview with American magazine PEOPLE, Jack confirms, "I got caught up in my new lifestyle and got carried away with drugs and alcohol.

"I voluntarily checked myself into a detox facility for my own health and well-being."

But father Ozzy - who himself battled years of substance abuse - is proud at the way his son has tackled his excesses.

He says, "It takes a lot of courage and strength to admit you need help, and both SHARON and I are proud Jack is facing his problems head-on."
