Sharon Osbourne is taking a one-month break from her co-hosting position on The Talk.

The 62-year-old collapsed at her home last Friday when she returned to Los Angeles from a trip to New York and Toronto, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

She "collapsed from mental and physical fatigue," Osbourne's rep said in a statement, first reported by People.

"Sharon Osbourne returned home to Los Angeles last Friday evening after a grueling schedule last week in New York and Toronto. Upon her return she collapsed from mental and physical fatigue. Her doctors report that she is suffering from “extreme exhaustion” and assessed that she most likely returned to work too soon after being hospitalized recently for pneumonia, the statement said. "Sharon has been advised and has agreed to to take a month hiatus to recover fully from these recent events. Sharon would like to thank everyone at The Talk for granting her this time off and to all friends, family and others for their incredible support."

The co-host also faced health concerns earlier this year when she was hospitalized for pneumonia.
