Denials

But David, who is two years older than Sharon at 69, said she didn't even have an issue with her size until she was a teen.

He added:"She is bad... Her past exploits will come back to haunt her."

Speaking on The Talk, Sharon claimed last month: "I used to get fat shamed by my brother.

"[He] used to get his friends to join in. It sticks with you. At times I was bigger than others. My weight has always [gone up and down], and that’s it."

David's view

David told The Mirror: "Her weight problems did not begin until she was aged 22 or 23 after she split from her long-time boyfriend."

He added that Sharon ended up reaching for the cookie jar as a way of dealing with the ending of the relationship.

But he said it was "complete fiction" that he and his friends picked on Sharon as a result of her weight gain.

The siblings haven't spoken to each other for 13 years.

Sharon also said that David is jealous of the success she and husband Ozzy Osbourne have.

She added that he wants "sympathy and money".

But David hit back.

"With regards to me constantly trying to contact her, utter fantasy, it would be like me wanting to contact Hitler or Dracula," he said.

"Mrs Osbourne has left two messages on my phone in the last 10 years which I have retained for possible future use as valuable material for anyone carrying out research into psychopathy."
