LONDON (Reuters) – British rock star Ozzy Osbourne’s son Jack had jewelry worth $382,000 stolen from a suitcase during a flight from Los Angeles to London, the Sun newspaper reported on Thursday.

The valuables, which included two watches, were probably stolen from the case before it was put in the cargo hold for the flight, the paper said.

Jack, 19, who became famous in his own right from the MTV reality show “The Osbournes,” which followed the daily exploits of Ozzy and his foul-mouthed family, was said to be devastated.

“They were gifts. It’s a horrible thing to happen,” the Sun quoted him as saying.

The theft is the latest in a series of troubles for the Osbourne family.

The hit fly-on-the-wall show has featured Jack and his sister Kelly dealing with substance abuse rehabilitation, his mother Sharon battling cancer and Ozzy recovering after a near-fatal quad bike crash.

Three months ago intruders broke into the family’s English country estate and stole jewelry worth nearly $2 million including Sharon’s wedding ring.

Ex-Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy, 55, wrestled with one of the thieves during the raid but the man escaped.
