Sad news from Ozzy Osbourne camp.
In a new interview, Ozzy opened up about the health issues he’s struggling with.
“It’s been terribly challenging for us all. I did my last show New Year’s Eve at The Forum. Then I had a bad fall. I had to have surgery on my neck, which screwed all my nerves.”
During the chat, the couple also revealed that Ozzy has been diagnosed with a mild form of Parkinson’s disease.
Touching upon the matter, Sharon said:
“It’s PRKN 2, which is a form of Parkinson’s. And it is… There are so many different types of Parkinson’s. It’s not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination, but it does affect certain nerves in your body. It’s like – you have a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day.”
“I got a numbness down this arm for the surgery, my legs keep going cold. I don’t know if that’s the Parkinson’s or what, you know, but that’s – see, that’s the problem. Because they cut nerves when they did the surgery. I’d never heard of nerve pain, and it’s a weird feeling.”
There have been many rumors about Ozzy having a form of Parkinson’s in the past, but he says he’s finally open to talking about his issues in public:
“I’m no good with secrets. I cannot walk around with it anymore ’cause it’s like I’m running out of excuses, you know?”
When asked about the rumors of him being on his “death bed”, Ozzy said through a laugh:
“No, far from it.”
