Sharon Osbourne was back home after being hospitalized for unspecified reasons, her son said Saturday night.

Osbourne was taken to a medical facility Friday evening as a result of an "unspecified medical emergency," police in Santa Paula, California, said.

The medical emergency was "non-life threatening," a source familiar with the matter told NBC News.

Her son, Jack Osbourne, said in an Instagram story Saturday evening that his mother was medically cleared.

“She has been given the all clear from her medical team and is now home,” he said. “As to what happened to my mum — I’m gonna leave it to her to share about when she is ready.”

Her team didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Osbourne left CBS’ daytime talk show “The Talk” in March 2021 following remarks she made defending British TV personality Piers Morgan in the wake of an interview Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, did with Oprah Winfrey the same month.

In a sit-down interview, Morgan, a longtime critic of Meghan and Prince Harry, rejected the American actress’ revelations that she experienced suicidal thoughts and stormed off the set of ITV’s “Good Morning Britain” and left the show.

“I am with you,” Osbourne tweeted in support of Morgan following the interview. “I stand by you. People forget that you’re paid for your opinion and that you’re just speaking your truth.”

Osbourne was criticized for the tweet, and a heated discussion with “The Talk” co-host Sheryl Underwood ensued on air during the March 10 episode.

“As part of our review, we concluded that Sharon’s behavior toward her co-hosts during the March 10 episode did not align with our values for a respectful workplace,” CBS said in a statement at the time.

Osbourne tweeted an explanation following the episode, saying that she doesn't condone "racism, misogyny or bullying."

“I should have been more specific about that in my tweet. I will always support freedom of speech, but now I see how I unintentionally didn’t make that clear distinction," she wrote.

Osbourne also recently spoke out about the new Harry & Meghan docuseries while on Morgan's Talk TV show, "Piers Morgan Uncensored."

"It was all very distasteful, Piers," she said in the Monday clip that she retweeted. “I was totally bored by the whining, the whining, the whining."

Osbourne took aim at Meghan comparing lunch with the Queen to Medieval Times, a family dinner theater, calling it "so horribly disrespectful."
