Sharon Osbourne and Ozzy Osbourne are sticking to their assisted suicide pact.

Nearly two decades after Sharon first spoke about the agreement, she clarified on Tuesday’s episode of her family’s “Osbournes Podcast” that it is still in place.

When Jack Osbourne asked whether his parents still have a “plan” — previously defined as traveling to Switzerland to end their lives at Dignitas, a physician-assisted suicide organization — Sharon confirmed they don’t want to “suffer.”

The former “Talk” co-host, 71, explained, “I don’t want it to actually hurt. Mental suffering is enough pain without physical. So if you’ve got mental and physical, see ya.”

Kelly Osbourne chimed in, “But what if you could survive?”

Sharon replied, “Yeah, what if you survived and you can’t wipe your own ass, you’re pissing everywhere, s–tting, can’t eat?”

The former “X Factor” judge previously told the Daily Mirror in September 2007 that Jack, 37, Kelly, 38, and their sister, Aimee Osbourne, had “all agreed to go with” their mom and dad’s plans.

“We believe 100 percent in euthanasia,” Sharon said at the time. “[We] have drawn up plans to go to the assisted suicide flat in Switzerland if we ever have an illness that affects our brains.

“If Ozzy or I ever got Alzheimer’s, that’s it — we’d be off,” she continued, adding that they couldn’t “put [their] kids through that.”

The couple told “Osbournes Podcast” listeners they don’t want to “suffer” from dementia.

Sharon and the Black Sabbath frontman came to this decision based on the “shell” her father, Don Arden, became when “deteriorat[ing] at such a rapid speed” during his Alzheimer’s battle.

The former “America’s Got Talent” judge elaborated on her dad’s health struggles in her “Survivor: My Story — The Next Chapter” memoir, published that same year.

Ozzy, for his part, explained to the outlet in 2014 that he and Sharon only want to live their lives “the way [they’re] living it now.”

The rocker has been vocal about his health struggles over the years, from a “life-altering” neck and back surgery to Parkinson’s disease.

Similarly, Sharon opened up about her mental health battle in 2014, telling her “Talk” co-hosts that she had been battling depression for 16 years.

“Some days are better than others, and some days you feel like you just want to pull the sheets over your head and just stay in that bed and not do a damn thing … except rot,” she said at the time.

At the time, their kids were aware of the plan.

As for why she hadn’t previously shared this information, Sharon noted that “no one’s ever asked.”

The Emmy winner went on to reveal in a 2019 episode that she has attempted suicide three times but is “still here.”
