Sharon Osbourne added more fuel to the heat of his feud with Simon Cowell by embarking on another bizarre rant.
The 67-year-old television personality previously said that the music tycoon refused to have her back as a judge on The X Factor because she was “too old.”
Speaking on her Honest AF Show podcast, Sharon said she believed Simon “did not like overweight people” and had very “dated” opinions.

She also claimed that he did not defend Jennifer Hudson while on American Idol due to her more curved physique.
She said, “Simon doesn’t have the ability to see people. He doesn’t like overweight people. Seriously.
“That’s why he refused Jennifer Hudson, that’s why he didn’t defend her on American Idol. But it’s the truth. It is very dated (according to him). ‘
Although she allegedly did not receive support from Simon and was only seventh on the show, Jennifer won an Oscar for her performance Dreamgirls in 2006.

Jennifer previously said, “Simon told me I was” too tall “in every way. I think he meant my hair, my voice, my personality, my songs.
“I didn’t really understand how it was a negative thing. I said, “How big is a star? »‘
It looked like Sharon and Simon had called for a truce over their quarrel last year, when Simon told the Mirror that he would never criticize her for being “too talkative.”
Simon said he would never criticize the television personality for his noisy nature, which is why he first hired him as a judge.

Simon told the publication, “I called him the other day and said, ‘Look, I’m going to be honest with you. How could I criticize you for being speechless when that is why I hired you in the first place ?!
“Sharon is a bit carried away but deep down, she has a real affection for shows. “
Adding that he would be happy to welcome her if she wanted, Simon said he would jump “on a plane in five seconds and she would do the same.”
He continued, “There is absolutely no bad blood and like I said, when people think I’m bored with her, I’m not! She’s a good friend and she will always be.
Candid: To make amends, Simon said, “I phoned him the other day and said, ‘Look, I’m going to be honest with you. How can I blame you for being speechless when that’s why I hired you?
A few weeks ago, Sharon laughed at Simon’s plastic surgery saying that his “teeth were too white again”.
In an appearance in The Talk in March, the host also revealed that she turned down a role in Fox’s The Masked Singer when she signed up to return to the ITV series instead.
Sharon shared: “I refused to be a judge on the masked singer. I was registered to do another show at the time.
“I was signed to go to England, then Simon Cowell changed his mind and thought I was too old. I was on contract and I couldn’t do it. “
In his real comic fashion, music director Sharon joked, “Simon says,” She’s old. We need someone young. So if you want young, get out!
Sharon has already shocked fans when she threatened to drown the music tycoon in a blistering attack as she appeared on the X Factor jury after leaving the show.

Sharon played in the competition series for a total of seven years, as she appeared in the show’s first three seasons from 2004 to 2007, before returning in 2013, 2016 and 2017.
It comes after Simon wanted to present himself as the UK’s answer to Walt Disney, launching a lucrative line of children’s toys and books.
Simon is currently creating a series of children’s books with his six-year-old son Eric, but he plans to expand into merchandise.
A source told The Mirror, “Entertaining and educating children is a huge business, and Simon wants a piece of the cake.”
They added, “Simon is always ahead of new entertainment trends and sees how lucrative the children’s market is and there is room for another great player.
“He wants to take this project and make it the next phenomenon, just like Walt Disney did for animation and leave a legacy and entertainment empire to his son Eric. “
