Ozzy kid bid to die by drugs.
JACK Osbourne tried to kill himself after his mum was diagnosed with colon cancer, he said yesterday.
The son of rocker Ozzy Osbourne downed huge quantities of booze and pills in a suicide bid
Jack, 17, said: "For a while I was suicidal and I tried to kill myself.
"Every time she went into the hospital, I'd go on two-week benders."
"I took a bottle of pills. I'd been in Europe and I had a lot of absinthe and I was just drinking and drinking, trying to just shut my body down.
"I just sat in a hotel room, thinking, 'I want it to end, I want it to end'."
It is the fourth time he has come close to death and led to his admission to a rehabilitation centre.
He told MTV: "The first time I vomited in my sleep and didn't wake up.
"God finally woke me up the next morning."
Jack started drinking and taking cannabis at 13.
But his near overdoses finally led one of his worried pals to report his binges to Jack's parents, who put him in rehab.
