    Jack Osbourne in rehab

    From the AP
    PASADENA, Calif. - Jack Osbourne, the 17-year-old son of heavy metal star Ozzy Osbourne, has checked into a drug and alcohol rehabilitation clinic, People magazine reported.

    The teenager entered Las Encinas Hospital in Pasadena on April 23, according to the issue appearing on newsstands Friday.

    "I got caught up in my new lifestyle and got carried away with drugs and alcohol," Osbourne told the magazine. "Once I realized this, I voluntarily checked myself into a detox facility for my own health and well-being."

    A publicist for the Osbourne family did not immediately return calls seeking comment Tuesday.

    The magazine said Osbourne acknowledged to his mother, Sharon, in January that he was overindulging in marijuana and alcohol.

    Jack Osbourne is the youngest of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne's three children. He and his 18-year-old sister, Kelly, became international stars with the success of MTV's reality show "The Osbournes." Their older sister, Aimee, didn't take part.

    "It takes a lot of courage and strength to admit you need help, and both Sharon and I are proud Jack is facing his problems head-on," Ozzy Osbourne said.

    Ozzy Osbourne has been candid, both on and off the show, about his decades of battles with substance abuse. The second season began in November on a somber note, with the 54-year-old rock star boozing heavily to cope with Sharon's diagnosis of colon cancer.

    Ozzy since has said that his wife is cancer-free after months of treatment.

    In an interview last year, 50-year-old Sharon Osbourne told People magazine, "Kelly was four months old and being wheeled around the Betty Ford Center."

    "The kids have always known what it does, and they know they're not going to get away if they mess with it," she said.

    Last summer, Jack Osbourne injured his arm when he jumped off the Malibu Pier while surfing with members of the rock band Incubus. He also made a cameo on the WB series "Dawson's Creek

    My wife told me this this morning. I'm glad he's getting treatment. Kelly needs some too, IMO.

    Raise your hand if you're surprised.

    I kinda like Jack though. Don't know why. Kelly drives me insane.
    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.

    Jack is a bit of a goof, but I do kind of like him.
    Glad he's getting the treatment he needs.

    Kelly really is a whiney brat imo.
