SHARON OSBOURNE Says Son JACK Was Attacked By 'Homeless Guy': 'He Didn't See It Coming'

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.

Jack and Lisa Stelly have three minor kids; Pearl, 6, Andy, 3, and Minnie, 14 months.

Jack and Lisa married in 2012 and experienced a late-term miscarriage in 2013. The couple have faced other hurdles, including Jack's multiple sclerosis diagnosis.

Jack and his father, Ozzy Osbourne, are stars of of A&E's "Ozzy & Jack's World Detour", in which they travel the world together, exploring the history behind some of the planet's most storied sites, while checking out some lesser-known locations along the way.
