Newly-engaged Jack Osbourne has pleaded with tabloid reporters desperate to get more information about his actress fiancee, asking them not to pester her parents.
The reality TV star and filmmaker proposed to Lisa Stelly last week (ends30Sep11) and she confirmed the happy news in a tweet on Friday.
She cooed, "The most amazing man I've ever met asked me to marry him... and he wasn't joking!"
But Osbourne isn't happy about the media interest in the engagement story - and he has taken to Twitter.com to urge hacks not to bother his wife-to-be's family.
He writes, "Dear Journalists, please refrain from contacting my fiances (sic) family. Don't be a**holes. There is a right way to go about this."
