Sharon Osbourne fears death of Alzheimer's like father

London: Sharon Osbourne has admitted that she terrified of dying due to Alzheimer's like her father.

The former 'X Factor' judge, 62, who recently battled cancer, came across a new challenge after a DNA test revealed that she carries two of the four genes responsible for the disease, which if develops makes a person completely powerless, the Mirror reported.

She said that she her husband Ozzy Osbourne had gotten the tests done at a university in England, the results of which took 3 months to come back.

She added that she had first-hand knowledge of what it could do to a person as her music mogul father Don Arden had it before he died in 2007 aged 81, calling it the most "soul-destroying disease."
