Ozzy Osbourne can’t stand being and home and wants to be back on the road. That’s what his wife, Sharon Osbourne, said on the U.K. talk show, Loose Women, today, when asked by the other hosts about an update on her husband.
Osbourne had to postpone the remainder of his 2019 tour dates as he recovered from a bad bout of pneumonia and then later suffered a bad fall, aggravating old injuries. Here’s what Sharon said when asked about Ozzy’s health status:
“[Ozzy’s] had a really tough year — really. It started off with flu, which went to bronchitis, which went to pneumonia. He was hospitalized, came out [and] was well on the road to recovery, and he gets up in the middle of the night to go to the loo for his… and on the way back, he tripped up on the carpet that was under our bed and fell against the corner of the night table, which is made of mirror [glass].”
She continued: “A few years ago, he was in a motorbike accident and he had to have metal rods put in his body and the accident moved all the metal rods and the bones they were screwed into all splintered. Then he had trouble with his neck and they had to do two operations on him and he’s in recovery now, thank goodness. But every day he has to work with a physiotherapist.”
She noted that Ozzy is in terrible pain but focused on getting well enough to get back on the road to finish his touring commitments.
“He’s not good at being at home. He wants to be back on the road, back on his tour, back with his band, and he’s pining. Really, the challenge is not his injuries, it’s his state of mind to keep him positive and working.”
Interestingly, when the hosts asked if there was any fear of forming an addiction to pain killers, Sharon made it clear that Ozzy was not taking pain killers this time around and using a more modern approach, CBD oil:
“He’s off all of that. He had to have it after he was operated on the last time. But now for pain, he has that CBD —whatever it’s called — and he’s dealing with it that way.”
CBD oil is made from the part of the marijuana plant that doesn’t get you high – cannabidiol – and is typically used for pain relief, or dealing with the nervous system.
Ozzy has already begun rescheduling dates.
