Sharon Osbourne is being sued for allegedly attacking a reality show contestant.
A lawsuit has been filed against the 56-year-old presenter after she reportedly scratched and pulled the hair of Megan Hauserman last December on 'Rock of Love: Charm School'.
Megan, 29, is suing for battery, negligence and infliction of emotional distress.
She claims Sharon lost her temper during a recording of the VH1 programme - which is about etiquette and manners - after the former Playboy model insulted Sharon's husband Ozzy Osbourne.
The lawsuit - filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court yesterday (02.03.09) - states Megan was "grievously and permanently injured and hurt in her health, strength and activity".
Megan is suing for damages to cover past and future medical expenses, loss of potential earnings and legal costs.
At the time of the incident, a source said: "Megan reckoned Sharon was sniping at her so she made a comment back saying Sharon was only famous for managing a rock star who isn't famous anymore - then it all kicked off."
Megan was eliminated during episode four of the series after she came to blows with the eventual winner Brandi Mahon.
