Rock legend Ozzy Osbourne posted an image of himself screaming and still rocking to show off to his fans that he's still 'alive and kicking!' despite recent 'deathbed' rumors.
In the "screaming" photo, Osbourne trolled the trolls by joking in the post caption. "Read any good news lately?" he remarked. More recently, Osbourne shared a snippet of a new music video for his new single, "Straight to Hell," which will be dropping on Monday.
In the post, Osbourne's son Jack chimed in as well, joking, "Wait what?? I thought you were meant to be on your death bed? What are you doing up?"
Ozzy Osbourne: Still Rocking
The rumors have it that Ozzy's health was failing—but he's proving everyone wrong! He's still here rocking and rolling!
The rumors of Osbourne's failing health emerged earlier this week, but his daughter Kelly quickly took to social media to squash them.
"Today I had a wonderful start to 2020. I went out to lunch with my family. Then spent the rest of the day laughing and hanging out with my dad," Osbourne began in her Instagram Story.
"I come home to read sickening articles about my dad supposedly being on his 'death bed' sometimes the media makes me sick!!! It's no secret that my dad has had a rough year when it comes to his health but come the F— on this is utter bulls—," she concluded.
Ozzy Deathbed Rumors Are False
While the deathbed rumors were just that, unfounded hearsay, it is true that Osbourne had been dealing with multiple health issues over the past couple of years. At this time, however, the heavy metal icon appears to be doing well, and is gearing up for a brand new album, which will reportedly be released sometime later this year.
However, her day took a turn after she returned to her own home and saw some “sickening articles about my dad supposedly being on his ‘death bed.’ ”
“Sometimes the media makes me sick!!!” she continued. “It’s no secret that my dad has had a rough year when it comes to his health but come the F— on this is utter bulls—.”
The legendary former Black Sabbath rocker, 71, went on to address the untrue reports on his Instagram page.
Ozzy The Black Sabbath Rock Legend Lives
In February 2019, Ozzy announced he was postponing the first four dates of his No More Tour 2 falling ill with the flu and bronchitis.
However, when the “Crazy Train” singer paid his doctor a second visit, he was diagnosed with a severe upper-respiratory infection, the musician’s rep said in a statement at the time. Because of the toll touring takes on his body and his extensive travel schedule in severe winter conditions, the doctor feared the infection could develop into pneumonia.
