Sharon Osbourne gave an Ozzy health update on The Talk. The singer was hospitalized about a week ago because of flu complications. She revealed that he is doing better now.
“He’s doing good. He’s breathing on his own. He’s overcome by the response he’s had.”
Irish Mirror previously reported that the 70-year-old singer “was reportedly sent to the critical facility in a private hospital after his bronchitis worsened, amid fears he could develop pneumonia.”
An “insider” previously told The Sun:
“Poor old Ozzy hasn’t had the best of times. He’s been really struggling with flu which turned into bronchitis. Doctors feared he could contract pneumonia which, in a person over 70, can be fatal.
“This sparked a lot of panic among those closest to him, but doctors reassured everyone he was in the best possible hands.
“Ozzy’s a fighter, and is getting better day by day. The worst is over, he’s smiling again, and he can’t wait to get up on stage.”
Ozzy health problems had already made the singer postpone all the tour that would do for Europe next to Judas Priest during this month. The motive alleged at the time was a serious respiratory infection that affected him – the diagnosis could progress to pneumonia if the shows were kept.
Ozzy said he was “devastated” by having to cancel the European tour, which is part of “No More Tours 2,” his last major tour on the planet. “It seems that since October everything I touched has turned upside down, first the infection in the thumb, now the flu and the bronchitis,” said Madman, who apologized to everyone.
In recent days, Ozzy’s wife, Sharon, and the couple’s son, Jack, reassured fans about the situation. “As you may have already heard, Ozzy was hospitalized after a few complications with a flu.” Doctors believe this is the best way to get him to recover quickly, thanks to everyone for his love and concern, “Sharon said on Twitter. . “I’m going to see my dad. He’s a lot better. Thank you for all the messages,” Jack said on Instagram.
The European tour in question was not the first time Ozzy Osbourne had to cancel shows due to health problems on his current No More Tours tour. By 2018, he had to postpone four dates in the United States after an infection in his right hand.
A few weeks ago, Ozzy also reported the rupture of a blood vessel in his eye. The problem occurred in a curious situation: the Madman coughed so hard that the vase burst.
No More Tours 2 marks Madman’s farewell to the stage – or, as he has said, the “big tours” since he does not intend to retire completely.
