Sharon Osbourne thanks rapper who ‘saved’ daughter Aimee’s life in studio fire

Sharon Osbourne thanked rapper Jamal Rajad for the role he played in helping her daughter Aimee Osbourne escape from a Hollywood studio fire Thursday.

“your husband alerting her literally saved her life,” the former “The Talk” co-host, 69, captioned a screenshot on her Instagram Story Friday of a comment from Rajad’s wife and fellow rapper, Pretty Face Ray’Ray, about the incident, which killed one person and injured two.

“THANK YOU @pretty.face.rayray,” she added.

In the original comment, Ray’Ray wrote, “[Aimee] ASKED MY HUSBAND TO CATCH HER SO SHE CAN JUMP OUT OF THE SECOND FLOOR AFTER HE WAS YELLING LETTING EVERYONE IN THE BUILDING KNOW. GLAD SHE DIDNT HAVE TO [JUMP] AND SHE WAS OKAY.”

Ray’Ray continued, “I’m still here right now, hoping I can salvage our studio equipment.”

After Sharon responded to the comment, Ray’Ray reposted it and called Rajad a “hero.”

Rajad shared in his own Instagram post that his cats were killed in the fire.

“I tried to save them but I could. Not [sic] beat the smoke and flames,” he wrote.

Aimee, 23, has yet to share her experience on social media. She was working in the studio with a producer when the fire broke out, according to Sharon.

“They are the lucky two that made it out alive,” the former “X Factor” judge wrote early Friday. “It is utterly heartbreaking that someone lost their life today in this fire & we are sending our prayers to this person & their family. What happened today was beyond horrific. I really hope moving forward that buildings like this are better regulated for fire safety.”

Sharon went on to call the building “a creative hub for music in Hollywood,” adding, “Producers, musicians, mixers & artists also lost all of their equipment.”

Aimee is Sharon and husband Ozzy Osbourne’s eldest child. (The couple are also the parents of Kelly Osbourne and Jack Osbourne.)

The singer infamously did not appear on the family’s MTV reality show, “The Osbournes,” when it aired from 2002 to 2005.

Kelly, 37, told Dax Shepard in a May 2021 episode of his podcast, “Armchair Expert,” that she and her older sister “don’t talk.”

“We’re just really different,” the “Fashion Police” alum, who is currently pregnant with her first baby, explained at the time. “She doesn’t understand me, and I don’t understand her.”
