Sharon Osbourne sued over ‘TV fight’

Sharon Osbourne is being sued by a contestant who appeared on her US reality show who claims she attacked her.

The former X Factor judge has been accused of hitting Megan Hauserman, 27, pulling her hair, scratching her and throwing a drink over her in an episode of Rock Of Love: Charm School, shown on VH1.

Megan’s lawsuit claims battery, negligence and intentional infliction of emotional distress. She seeks a jury trial and punitive damages.

The December incident can be seen on VH1’s website billed as “Sharon and Megan’s big fight”.

In the video, the women exchange insults, Sharon pours a drink over Megan and the two are then surrounded by a rush of people.

Megan’s lawyer Warren Binder said in an interview: “It’s pretty hard to deny what happened on the video.”

Sharon’s publicists were not immediately available to comment.
