Sharon Osbourne: "Ozzy has had “three major operations” since his fall


Ozzy Osbourne’s wife, Sharon, has explained that the metal music icon has been forced to undergo three major operations after he suffered a fall at home earlier this year.

The Prince of Darkness, who has battled a number of different health conditions since his accident, is planning to head back out on tour despite being moved into the intensive care unit a matter of months ago.

The trouble began when Ozzy got up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom, Sharon explained: “He gets up in the night, goes to the bathroom, comes back, falls on the rug and bashed his head on the side table.”

“Then he went this way [motioning with her hands] and bashed his head on the post of our bed, and down he went. He didn’t put his hands down and he went face down and his neck went back. And he had to have spinal surgery.”

She added: “He’d had a motorbike accident a few years ago and he had metal rods in his body. And the fall pushed the rods through his bones. So he had to have three major operations.”
