Jack Osbourne: I Have Multiple Sclerosis

Jack Osbourne has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, he tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Just two weeks after he and fiancée Lisa Stelly welcomed daughter Pearl Clementine, Osbourne, 26, was dealt the shocking news. In an exclusive, sit-down interview and photo shoot with PEOPLE magazine, Jack and his mother Sharon open up about their emotional ordeal.

“I was just angry and frustrated and kept thinking, ‘Why now?’ ” Jack tells PEOPLE. “I’ve got a family and that’s what’s supposed to be the most important thing.” This reaction, of course, is understandable. Having a disease like MS is definitely a big hurdle, especially for a new father like Jack.


Multiple sclerosis is a disease that affects the central nervous system – the brain and spinal cord – and can cause problems with muscle control and strength, vision, balance, feeling, and thinking. MS differs in each case, with some people going through life with only minor problems and others becoming seriously disabled. Most people fall somewhere between those two extremes.

‘Octomom’ Poses Nude for Magazine to Pay Bills

Financial struggles have led “Octomom” Nadya Suleman to pose semi-nude in photographs to run alongside a paid interview in a British magazine, her attorney said Tuesday.

With 14 children to care for, Suleman can’t hold down a regular job to pay bills, lawyer Jeff Czech said. In photos posted to TMZ.com and published in Britain’s Closer magazine, Suleman wears panties and little else. In an interview with TMZ’s television show, Suleman said she didn’t expect the photos to reach American readers so quickly, but she’s not ashamed of posing for the magazine.

“I’m doing what I need to do to take care of my kids,” Suleman said. Czech declined to disclose how much Suleman was paid for the photo shoot and interview.

When Suleman gave birth to octuplets in 2009, she was an unemployed single mother who already had six other children. All her children were conceived through in vitro fertility treatments. Her octuplets are the world’s longest-surviving set.


Since the birth, she has cut deals with media outlets and posed in tabloid photo spreads to earn a living. She has promoted spaying and neutering for an animal rights group and gotten beat up in a celebrity boxing match. In 2009, Suleman declined a million-dollar offer to appear in pornography. Last year, she told Oprah Winfrey she was addicted to having children and called herself stupid for her financial problems.
