SHARON OSBOURNE Says She Grew Up Around Violence

July 4, 2007

According to The Sun Online, Sharon Osbourne has revealed she took a poo on a gift her dad received when she was a child!

She was taking her revenge on him for having an affair, she says.

"My father's mistress bought him a really ugly monkey statue once. When I found out he was having an affair with her I felt betrayed. I felt so stupid," she said. "This man that I thought was such an honest, good man was a fake. So I got this stupid concrete monkey and did a s**t on it. I was laughing. I was laughing so much that I p****d on it too. Then I cried. I left it there for him as a statement, I suppose," she told Dr. Pamela Connolly on the U.K. TV show "Shrink Rap".

And Sharon explained that her relationship with music manager dad Don Arden — who looked after SMALL FACES, ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA and Ozzy's BLACK SABBATH — was often rocky.

"I was surrounded by violent people, violent talk, violent behavior, so there was nothing unusual seeing my dad threatening someone, or brandishing a firearm. It seemed normal. I thought everybody was like this. It was part of our lives," she said.

"My father really had a temper. He had a voice which would echo through the entire house. A couple of times he would whack me and he used to yank my hair."

But she added that it did not seem that uncommon to her.

"I wouldn't say I was abused and beaten; in those days it was a normal thing."

And Sharon also explained that her dad devised some cruel punishments for her.

"I was in awe of him. I always wanted to please him. To do that I always had to do as he said. As punishment, my dad used to lock me in the unlit coal cupboard in the basement. I still panic in confined spaces to this day. I won't go on the underground. I hate packed trains."
