VIA E! News / yOUTUBE
In a recent interview, Sharon Osbourne shared a somber update on her husband Ozzy Osbourne’s health, revealing the ongoing challenges he faces. The renowned Black Sabbath frontman has experienced a decline in health in recent years, stemming from a 2019 fall and subsequent surgeries to address complications from a quad bike accident in 2003.
The Osbourne family disclosed in 2020 that Ozzy had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, a progressive nervous system disorder. Sharon expressed the emotional toll of witnessing her husband’s deterioration, stating:
“It’s just been heartbreaking for me to see my husband in a position where he’s not self-sufficient, he needs help. He was so vibrant, with such a zest for life. But you learn to adapt.”
Osbourne’s Final Surgery
Ozzy, often referred to as the Prince of Darkness, underwent another neck surgery in September, declaring it his final procedure, emphasizing his reluctance to undergo further surgeries. Sharon explained:
“He’s had seven operations in five years. He was on huge amounts of blood thinners so you have to be careful, because if you fall again you could bleed out.”
Describing Ozzy’s current state, Sharon compared him to “a piece of china,” emphasizing the need for delicate care and protection. The Osbourne family has rallied together to support Ozzy, ensuring his well-being. Despite the challenges, they continue to share their experiences through The Osbournes Podcast.
Due to his health issues, Ozzy had to retire from touring, which meant that all of his scheduled shows had to be canceled. He claims that his singing voice remains undamaged, but to his dismay, his body is failing him. Ozzy expressed his wish to resume touring if his health allowed it, but he also acknowledged the uncertainty, saying:
“So, if I can ever get back to where I can tour again, fine.
“But right now, if you said to me, ‘Can you go on the road in a month?’ I couldn’t say yes. I mean, if I could tour I’d tour.”
