Mrs. Osbourne’s representative did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The tweet from Mrs. Osbourne, co-host of “The Talk” and wife of rocker Ozzy Osbourne, appeared to refer to one posted Monday on the account for shock jock Mr. Stern’s radio show.

Mr. Stern “isn’t sure if he’ll do another season and says Sharon Osbourne may not come back unless she gets more money,” the tweet read.
