Sharon Osbourne and her daughter AIMEE have pulled out of performing in the London production of THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES, because Aimee has been struck down with an undisclosed illness.

Aimee, 21, had been set to begin her run with her mother in the West End production of the show on Tuesday (05APR05).

In a statement, a spokeswoman says the family has flown to Los Angeles so that Aimee can have "further treatment and rest".

The representative says, "They were both very much looking forward to appearing in the show, but Sharon's focus now has to be on the family and, more importantly, Aimee's health."

Aimee's illness comes at the end of a string of bad incidents for the unlucky Osbourne family. On 25 March (05), Sharon and her husband Ozzy were forced to flee their English country mansion after a fire broke out in the living room.

Ozzy unsuccessfully tackled a thief as he raided the same house and stole a large amount of jewellery in November (04). And in December 2003, Ozzy was in a coma for eight days after breaking his collarbone, several ribs and a neck vertebrae in a quad bike accident on the grounds of the property.
