Ozzy Osbourne has revealed that he’s been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. In a new interview with Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts, he and his wife Sharon disclosed that he received the diagnosis last February following a fall.
“I did my last show New Year’s Eve at the Forum. Then I had a bad fall,” he explained. “I had to have surgery on my neck, which screwed all my nerves.” From there he was diagnosed with PRKN-2, a “mild form” of Parkinson’s. He is now on Parkinson’s medication and taking nerve pills, and will be going to a specialized professional in Switzerland in April.
“I feel better now that I’ve owned up to the fact that I have Parkinson’s,” he said. “I ain’t gonna go anywhere yet.” Find the interview below.
Ozzy Osbourne suffered a number of health issues in 2019. Early in the year, was hospitalized and forced to cancel tour dates due to complications from the flu. He later had the fall that he and Sharon discussed in the GMA interview. This year, Kelly Osbourne denied rumors that her father was on his “death bed.”
