Sharon Osbourne

Makeup Artist Sues 'AGT'

I Fell Into a Hole & Broke My Leg

You know Sharon Osbourne is loving this -- TMZ has learned her former "America's Got Talent" makeup artist is now suing her arch-nemesis ... insisting it's AGT's fault he suffered a nasty workplace accident.

Jude Alcala -- who did makeup for 'AGT' in 2012 (including Sharon's) -- filed the lawsuit against NBC as well as producers Syco Entertainment and FremantleMedia, claiming he accidentally stepped into a hole in the stage last June ... and fell 6 feet, permanently injuring himself.

According to the lawsuit, NBC and producers negligently maintained the stage without proper warning signs -- and therefore ... it's their fault the accident happened.

Sources close to Alcala tell us, the makeup artist broke his femur during the fall, and damaged his shoulder so badly it required surgery.

We're told Sharon (who famously left 'AGT' on bitter terms last year) lent her full support to Jude after the accident.

Jude is suing for negligence and more, demanding unspecified damages. Calls to NBC and Fremantle were not returned.

If that picture is an indicator of his work, then it shouldn't be too hard to replace somehow who applies pancake makeup with a spatula and lines someone's eyes with black liner and sends them on their way.

This man sounds like he actually has a legitimate claim. That is so rare these days.

all about the money    

Umm wouldn't this be a work place accident covered by workman's comp? So basically it's a civil suit ie "My medical bills are paid but Simon Cowell has deep packets so I can sue for additional money."

The Osbourne family is so gross. Of course she is loving someone else's pain to prove her own petty point.

It wouldn't have even made the "news," without adding Osbourne's name, of course. Geesh!

LOL! TMZ deleted my comment about them making this up and putting Sharon Osbourne's name on it to attract attention. Did that hit close to home, TMZ? Or is it because I used the word fuck?

Anybody else think Sharon talks in baby-speak?? She's always talking really slow, and emphasizing certain words, like a child that just learned a new word...

That is a very nasty series of injuries. Letting any of them inside a joint to poke about...bad news. Even worse if they are such a great doctor as Amy Kleimb :)
