Sharon Osbourne came out swinging this week in a lengthy Facebook post bashing her brother for allegedly trying to profit off Jack Osbourne's multiple sclerosis.

Sharon Osbourne, 61, accuses her brother, 62-year-old David Arden, of selling stories about her and her family to the press and puts their "dysfunctional" sibling relationship on blast.

"Since 2007 you have decided to make money off our dysfunctional relationship," she wrote in the open letter that was posted on the social network Tuesday. "You sold a two-part story to The News of the World and another story the Sun. Now, you appear again, having sold a two-part story to the Daily Mirror, claiming you want to help Jack with his MS. That’s as low as it gets, making money off my son's MS. Jack was diagnosed in 2012, where have [you] been the last 18 months?" 

Arden and Osbourne reportedly stopped speaking in 2007 after arguing over where their father, English music manager Don Arden, should be buried. Arden, who also has MS, told the Mirror that he wants to be there for his nephew and hopes the family can reconcile.

"I'm the only other person in the family that has it — I know when I was first diagnosed I wanted to speak to fellow MS sufferers, I’m sure Jack feels the same," he said. "I'm not entirely sure what will happen, but before I die it would be wonderful to see the family back together again."

But Osbourne, who claims to have financially supported her brother for most of his life, isn’t biting.

"Here you are again, how many years later?" she wrote. "Six years later, selling stories again. Saying that you want to help Jack with his MS. Jack is a married man with a daughter and a loving family. You were only in his life for a handful of years, he, doesn't know you."

Osbourne's daughter, 29-year-old Kelly, praised her mom on Twitter for speaking out against Arden.
