'The Osbournes' Jack Osbourne checks into California rehab clinic

What price fame? The unexpected success of MTV's The Osbournes reality series made rocker Ozzy Osbourne and his family into instant celebrities, but not without cost. The latest incident to hit the dysfunctional clan, as reported by Britain's Sky News (part of the Fox group), is the admission of the Osbournes' 17-year-old son Jack to a rehab clinic.
The Las Encinas clinic in California treats both alcohol and drug abuse, although its staff has refused to confirm which one Jack is being treated for. Father Ozzy suffered from both, and the article is accompanied by a photo of the underage Jack with what appears to be a glass of wine in his hand.
