Sharon Osbourne and Piers Morgan had a seemingly friendly bond when they co-judged “America’s Got Talent” in 2007. However, before the television personalities took on the roles, they had a messy dispute that quickly turned physical. Morgan previously described an incident where Osbourne tried to assault him after he made a snarky comment during dinner.
“I said something a little confrontational,” Morgan admitted to Loose Women in 2017. “But next thing Sharon had run up behind me — all the execs were there — and begins to strangle me to death.” However, their conflict was quickly resolved, and the pair went on to join David Hasselhoff at the “AGT” judging table for Season 2.
It wouldn’t be long before the outspoken duo found themselves in another intense exchange — this time over a 9-year-old contestant on the show. “I feel like it’s not so much about you, but what your mom wants,” Morgan told the aspiring cheerleader. Osbourne became visibly upset with Morgan’s remarks and made no secret of it. “This is horrific, and I’m going,” Osbourne said before storming off stage.
