Sharon Osbourne is parting ways with*"The X Factor"— at least for 2018.
The 65-year-old star, who first joined the British version of the reality series in 2004, announced her departure on social media*Sunday, saying she doesn't feel like she is "needed."
"After watching the new season*#XFactor*unfold, I’ve seen the new judges finding their rhythm and are doing brilliantly," Osbourne wrote on Facebook. "Simon [Cowell] was so gracious to find me a spot on the live shows but at this point I really don’t think I’m needed and I would honestly feel odd coming in at this point. So I have decided to pass on the series this year."
She added: "I wish the show continued success and as much as I love to get my face on TV you will have to do without me this season... Loves ya, Mrs. O.”
An "X Factor" spokesperson also confirmed the news*in a statement to Deadline on Monday.
"'The X Factor' can confirm Sharon Osbourne has decided not to return to this year’s show. Sharon will always be a big part of 'The X Factor'*family and we wish her all the best for the future.”

According to Us Weekly, "The Talk" co-host's exit*comes on the heels of a recent explicative-filled interview during SirusXM's "The Howard Stern Show."
“I don’t have to have those kids singing in my face. Those little sh-ts. They all suck,” Osbourne reportedly said before calling the series "f--king karaoke."
"The X Factor" is currently in its 15th season with Cowell, former One Direction member Louis Tomlinson, along with*husband and wife Robbie and Ayda Williams, as judges.
