Sharon Osbourne has notified the police and massively beefed up her security after receiving threats to herself, her family and even their pets over the controversy surrounding her alleged behavior on the set of “The Talk,” Page Six has confirmed.

A source close to the talk show host said the disturbing threats were coming in on social media, by phone and also to her home and business addresses.

The source said, “The threats are coming in from all sides, in every way possible, threatening her, her family, and even their animals.

“It is all off the back of this drama on the show.

“Sharon has had to significantly increase her security. She has done everything necessary so she and her family feels safe.”

The source added that Osbourne has notified the local police about the threats, saying, “She and her security team have alerted the authorities, they are going through all the appropriate channels.”

“There were all kinds of threats, from death threats, to threats of violence, to kidnapping her dogs,” the source said.

Osbourne has also turned off comments on her most recent Instagram posts following a barrage of angry and nasty comments.

Osbourne, 68, has been under fire following a heated discussion last week with co-host Sheryl Underwood when Osbourne defended her pal Piers Morgan for saying he didn’t believe Meghan Markle’s statements in her recent tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Osbourne tweeted a general apology over her Morgan-related comments last Friday, writing, “To anyone of color that I offended and/or to anyone that feels confused or let down by what I said, I am truly sorry.”

But since then, accusations started flying about Osbourne’s alleged behavior on the set.

Former “The Talk” co-host Holly Robinson Peete claimed that Osbourne once said Peete was “too ghetto” to be on the morning show.

Then a bombshell report released Tuesday cited multiple sources, including former “The Talk” co-host Leah Remini, claiming Osbourne referred to Julie Chen, who is Chinese American, as “slanty eyes” and a “wonton,” and to former co-host Sara Gilbert, who is a lesbian, as a “p—y licker.”

“The Talk” announced earlier this week the show would be on temporary hiatus while producers investigate but ultimately extended the break another week.

Osbourne’s fate on the CBS talk show remains up in the air.

This sounds a little like the kind of report your team would put out there to change the narrative. No one needs to be sending out death threats over this situation, it’s not that deep.
