THE Talk's Sharon Osbourne ripped Sheryl Underwood's claim she never apologized following their now infamous on-air fight.
The duo found themselves in a heated discussion after the British personality supported Piers Morgan's brutal comments about Meghan Markle.
According to Daily Mail, Sharon claimed that she indeed apologize to Sheryl, as she released screenshots of text messages that were allegedly sent to her co-host.
She told the outlet: "I not only sent these messages to Sheryl but I apologized to her in person in her dressing room."
She continued: "Why are you saying I never apologized Sheryl? What are you trying to do to me?
"Why are you trying to destroy my reputation? Just be honest. Tell me."
In the first message, shared to the outlet, dated two days after the on-air fight, Sharon, 68, wrote: "Sheryl, My heart is heavy and I'm deeply saddened by the events that transpired on Wednesday.
"I don't want to lose my true friend over this. Im sorry for telling you to f**k off during break, I'm sorry for accusing you of fake crying while we were live on air and I'm sorry for losing my temper with you.
"I felt shocked, scared and saddened by what felt like was a blind sided attack. You know me. You know how I've always had your back. We've outlasted everyone on this show and that's because we've always been a team and had each other's backs."
She added: "I consider you a genuine friend. If you want to talk on the phone over the weekend I'm here. Once again from the bottom of my heart I'm sorry.
"Is there anything You need from me or that I can do to help you heal? Love and respect always – Sharon."
While the texts went unanswered, Sharon sent another text three days later that read: "Hi Sheryl. I know you're taking space and I don't want to disrespect that. I'm just reaching out because I want you [to] know I'm thinking about you. If you are willing, can we talk before Wednesday? Big kiss."
The mother of three's response comes shortly after Sheryl, 57, responded "no" when she was asked if Sharon had apologized to her yet for all that went down.
Sheryl, during a three-part series on her podcast titled Sharon Walks Away, also explained that before she brought up Sharon's tweet about protecting Piers' "freedom of speech," she was attempting to form her questions "in a way that was not perceived as attacking."
She said: She said: "In my gut, I thought this was going to go left. And so I wanted to put it in its proper order, be very calm, but there were a few people that criticized me on that — 'Why do you give any f**ks about somebody's feelings? They give no f**ks about yours.'
"It's not about the reaction of the person, it's about me and who I'm trying to evolve and mature to be."
Sheryl also expressed regret about the controversy.
The on-air battle occurred after Sheryl made it clear she did not see eye-to-eye with Sharon after Ozzy Osbourne's wife defended Piers when he cast doubt on the Duchess of Sussex's shocking claims – which included feeling suicidal while pregnant with her first child.
The co-hosts exchanged furious words before Sharon was left in tears during the heated segment.
Soon after, Sharon's cohost Leah Remini claimed the ex America's Got Talent judge has a history of bullying and racist language.
Leah, 50, accused Sharon of referring to ex cohost Julie Chen as a “wonton” and “slanty eyes” on a regular basis.
Sharon would exit the The Talk after 11 seasons – the program is looking at a possible cancelation.
The network is also not currently looking to replace Sharon's empty chair at this moment.
Piers, 56, recently slammed CBS and their decision to let Sharon walk away.
He raged on Tucker Carlson Today: "He raged: "[Sharon] was taken down very deliberately, and it was all because she dared to tweet that I was entitled to my own opinion…"
