Sharon Osbourne had to be rushed to the hospital after suffering a medical emergency as she was filming a new TV show on Friday, December 16, 2022, via TMZ.

The actress, 70, fell ill during the taping of the unnamed show at Glen Tavern Inn in Santa Paula, California, as the outlet confirmed the news early on Saturday, December 17. Per TMZ, Osbourne was then transported to a local medical facility for treatment.

A rep for the Ventura County Fire Department told TMZ that first responders received a “medical call” for assistance before arriving at the scene on Friday, transporting the patient to Santa Paula Hospital. Local police chief Don Aguilar confirmed to the outlet that the England native was the patient.

The Unbreakable scribe previously battled colon cancer in 2002, in which she underwent chemotherapy as treatment, via Us Magazine.

“I was going through chemo, and I’d had a massive seizure,” Sharon recalled during a December 2015 episode of The Talk, nothing that, at one point, her “blood pressure had floored” and she was “going in and out of consciousness.” She added at the time, “They gave me a blood transfusion, and that didn’t work and then they gave me the old electric shock treatment – to stop me [from] talking.”

Several years after Sharon learned she was in remission, she decided to undergo a preventative double mastectomy in 2012 to lower her chances of getting cancer for a second time.

“As soon as I found out I had the breast cancer gene, I thought: ‘The odds are not in my favor,’” she told Hello! in November 2012. “I’ve had cancer before and I didn’t want to live under that cloud. I decided to just take everything off, and had a double mastectomy. For me, it wasn’t a big decision, it was a no-brainer. I didn’t want to live the rest of my life with that shadow hanging over me.”
