LATEST: Jack Osbourne begged his mother SHARON for help after taking his drug and alcohol abuse to the limit.

Sharon and Ozzy reportedly received a late night call from friends of the troubled teen, who checked into rehab in California at the weekend (26APR03), who told them their son was drunk and in bad shape near a beach in Malibu, California.

Sister KELLY says, "He's doing very well. We're all proud of him and he's in really good spirits."

OSBOURNES biographer TODD GOLD says, "Jack just got caught up in a new lifestyle of drugs and alcohol and he didn't like the way he was feeling.

"Ozzy has said how proud he is for seeking help and he talked from first hand experience on how much courage one needs to take that first step."
