Sharon Osbourne - Sharon Osbourne's brother wants to make peace

Sharon Osbourne's brother wants to make amends with her.

David Arden wants to be bury the hatchet with his sister and her family - husband Ozzy, and children Kelly and Jack - especially since his nephew was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) last year.

David fell out with the 61-year-old 'X Factor' UK judge over where to bury their father, Don Arden, who died in 2007.

The star's sibling is also battling MS, which affects the nervous system, and thinks he would be a good source of support for 28-year-old Jack as he can relate to what he is going through.

He explained to the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''I'm the only other person in the family that has it - I know when I was first diagnosed I wanted to speak to fellow MS sufferers, I'm sure Jack feels the same.

''I'm not entirely sure what will happen, but before I die it would be wonderful to see the family back together again.''

David is hoping Sharon - who described her parents as ''destructive'' role models in her autobiography 'Unbreakable' - will stop making negative comments about the family.

He said: ''I'm sick and tired of Sharon badmouthing our parents. It's really distressing. This has got to stop. I'm prepared to make peace with her for the sake of Jack. I'm battling the same illness and I want to try and be there for him.''

Jack discovered he had the debilitating disease last year and David can recall his heartbreak when he was told his nephew was diagnosed.

He added: ''I remember when I found out Jack had been diagnosed, I had come back from having wonderful treatment at the Chelsea and Westminster hospital in London. I had all these steroids pumping into me.

''Then a dear friend of mine called me and said, 'Can you believe it? Your nephew's got MS.' I was like, 'Holy s**t.' It was awful to hear that he was diagnosed.

''I have been living with it for a long time now and nobody else in the family has it. I'd love to give him advice but I wouldn't want to put him under pressure to defy mummy.''
