Kelly Osbourne is apparently struggling to deal with her family's health problems.

Recently her mother Sharon, 62, revealed tests found she had two of four genes that are linked to Alzheimer's disease.

'Kelly doesn't understand why this is happening to everyone she loves'

It's not the first time the talk show host has suffered from illness. She beat colon cancer and in 2012 revealed she'd undergone a double mastectomy after finding out she had a gene that increases the risk of breast cancer. Sharon has also struggled with depression in the past.

This follows the recent loss of Kelly's friend and former Fashion Police co-star Joan Rivers, who passed away last year after complications following a routine throat procedure.

"The Osbournes have been plagued by health problems for the past few years. It seems to be never-ending for the family and Kelly is finding it difficult to cope,” a source told British magazine Star.

In 2012, 30-year-old Kelly's younger brother Jack also revealed he'd been diagnosed with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis.

With the latest news, her friends are reportedly concerned with the way Kelly is handling things.

"Kelly doesn't understand why this is happening to everyone she loves. She feels like it's unfair, and she's terrified of losing her mum," the source continued.

Kelly has bravely carried on with show Fashion Police, with Kathy Griffin joining the series. It's an adjustment period for everyone involved.

"I'm excited but terrified at the same time," Kelly previously told Us Weekly. "Change isn't fun, but it has to happen. This situation f**king sucks."
