Sharon Osbourne attacks "cold and callous" reports on Ozzy's health


The wife of Ozzy Osbourne, Sharon, has hit out at the countless reports on Ozzy’s ill health earlier in the year. One such report was an especially cold-hearted piece which claimed Ozzy could “be dead by Christmas”.

Following recent health issues, Osbourne was forced to cancel live shows in the UK, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan following a bout of pneumonia which left the star hospitalised. It saw the Black Sabbath star postpone further shows following a fall which left him unable to perform.

While those shows have now been rescheduled for next summer and Sharon Osbourne has responded to the reports from Radar Online who reported that Ozzy was on a “crazy train to death”, with the National Enquirer suggesting he could “be dead by Christmas”.

Ozzy’s wife has now shared her feelings on the “disrespectful” stories during an appearance on the TV show The Talk, confirming that there is no truth to the callous reports.

“I’m not lost for words a lot, as you all know,” she continued, “but why do people just say this was true? How cold and callous are those headlines? Where’s people’s empathy? It’s not true, by any stretch of the imagination.”

“I’ve been open with everyone and so has Ozzy. He had a terrible, terrible bout of bad luck with his health, one thing after another. And then after his fall that he had, it’s been awful for him.”

Sharon also confirmed: “He’s getting better. He’s recuperating. Why be like, ‘He’s on a crazy train…’ How disrespectful to anyone. Ozzy ain’t going nowhere.”
