Sharon Osbourne says that Jack Osbourne is "okay," one week after he was attacked by a stranger while he was at a California coffee shop.
Jack's mother opened up about the incident during yesterday's (Monday, April 8) episode of the CBS daytime talk show "The Talk". She said: "[Jack] was in Studio City [on April 4] having his morning coffee, answering his e-mails. [it was] 9 o'clock in the morning, and suddenly, bam, he got punched in the face. He didn't see it coming; he was just on his phone. A homeless guy punched him in the face, and a guy that Jack was with kicked [the attacker] in the ribs. So, Jack followed him, called the police, and then [the attacker] pulled a screwdriver on the police. The police tased him and arrested him. And in the interim, a guy came up to Jack and said, 'Why are you having him arrested? He's homeless...' And then said to Jack, 'Oh, but I did see him attack two women last week.'"
She added: "You know what? Everybody wants to be kind, but if there's somebody that has a mental illness attacking people…"
After co-host Sara Gilbert asked, "And Jack's okay?" Sharon responded, "Thank God, yes. He is."
Jack's alleged attacker was arrested for battery and assault.
The incident happened less than a month after Jack's divorce from his wife of seven years was finalized.
