The 73-year-old Black Sabbath rocker has Parkinson’s disease and previously suffered a nasty fall and dislodged metal rods placed in his spine following a quad-bike accident
AceShowbiz –Ozzy Osbourne is having major surgery on Monday, June 13, which will “determine the rest of his life.” The “Dreamer” hitmaker’s wife Sharon Osbourne has revealed she is heading back to Los Angeles from London to be their for her spouse as he undergoes the life-changing operation next week.
In a new episode on the U.K.’s “The Talk” on TalkTV, she revealed, “[Ozzy] has a very major operation on Monday, June 13, and I have to be there. It’s really going to determine the rest of his life.”
The 73-year-old musician has Parkinson’s disease and previously suffered a nasty fall and dislodged metal rods placed in his spine following a quad-bike accident in 2003. It was already known that he was due to have one more operation.
In April, Piers Morgan asked pal Sharon on “Piers Morgan Uncensored” on TalkTV, “How is Ozzy, my great man? He is just one of my favourite people in the world. Been through the health wars a bit, how’s he doing?” To that, Sharon said the Black Sabbath rocker is keen to move back to England after his latest surgery.”
“He’s doing okay, he sends you his love. He’s got one more operation left to do and then he’s dying to come back home,” Sharon further elaborated.
Sharon’s Ozzy health update comes after it was reported that they’ve applied for permission to build a rehab wing at their home in the U.K. The “Crazy Train”hitmaker lodged an application requesting the green light for renovations at his Buckinghamshire mansion.
The extension will feature a self-contained nurse’s flat as well as “discreet grab rails and aids” and “an abundance of stopping and sitting spaces.” The plans also include a “health and exercise studio” as well as a “pool house orangery” and “garden room.”
In his plans, architect Lynne Walker wrote, “It is the ambition that the design creates a transition of flowing inside outside garden spaces, largely lit by natural light with folding doors opening up views.”
Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the “Paranoid” hitmaker has yet to comment on the renovation reports, but confirmed Ozzy – who was badly injured following his fall at home three years ago – is gearing up for another surgery on his “back or neck.”
Sharon recently admitted she now has to care for Ozzy “a lot” because of his health issues. “It’s very difficult, because of the combination of the Parkinson’s and his accident, you go, well, which one is this? Why’s this happening? Why’s that happening?” she shared.
Ozzy previously opened up about his Parkinson’s diagnosis in a candid interview on US TV, in which he admitted the condition is “just another thing on my plate.” He said, “Well the one question from me was, ‘Is it a terminal illness?’ and the guy says, ‘No, but life is.’ It’s just another thing on my plate I have got to deal with. I’m not in the slightest worried about it.”
He added, “I’ve not got any secrets. The initial shock is I’ve got Parkinson’s. Nobody knows what the f*** it is. I didn’t know anything about it apart from the name.”
