The Radar Online report claims nothing less than Ozzy Osbourne is facing death. Last Days: Ozzy Osbourne On His Deathbed is the headline.
Radar Online goes on to say: The ailing Black Sabbath frontman can’t even recognize his wife anymore. The source that published the report is an established “entertainment and gossip” website launched in 2008 with 11.3M unique monthly visitors according to American Media Inc.
Heavy metal maniac Ozzy Osbourne is bedridden in agonizing pain and losing his marbles, sources said — prompting pals to believe he’s waiting to die!
Sources revealed the bat-biting Black Sabbath frontman is in such dire straits he didn’t even realize his wife, Sharon, missed the holidays with him for the first time in 40 years.
“Ozzy is in chronic pain and begging to be put out of his misery!” an insider said. “He’s in such bad shape that he didn’t even notice Sharon wasn’t there.”
The 71-year-old “Crazy Train” singer’s health has declined dramatically since he took a tumble and dislodged metal rods in his back placed there after his 2003 ATV accident.
“He fell and damaged his spine,” the source said. “It’s had a domino effect that led to a raging infection and a pneumonia scare.”
Although an ailing Ozzy was forced to cancel his 2019 world tour, he rallied to perform at the American Music Awards in November, but doctors prohibited him from flying.
That meant he couldn’t join The Talk host Sharon, 67, over the holidays in her native England, where she had professional obligations with daughter Kelly.
She left son Jack, 34, and daughter Aimee, 36, to tend to Ozzy as he inches closer to the end.
A notorious drug and alcohol abuser over the course of his 50-year career, even Ozzy has confessed to being surprised he’s lasted this long.
“If you read a news story that said, ‘Ozzy Osbourne has been found dead in his hotel room,’ you wouldn’t go, ‘Oh really?’ would you? You’d say, ‘Well, obviously!’ ” he joked. “If you’d said to me years ago, ‘How long do you think you’ll last?’ I would’ve said, ‘I’ll be dead by 40!’”
Now insiders claim Ozzy has all but given up.
“Ozzy just lies in bed all day, moaning in pain 24/7. He doesn’t know his family half the time and once mistook Sharon for a total stranger, asking her, ‘Who are you?’ ” the source said.
The couple hit a rough patch in 2016 when Ozzy was caught having an affair with a hairdresser. Sharon dumped him but took him back after a two-month separation.
“Sharon checked on Ozzy every day from London, but now she’s bracing for the inevitable,” the source said. “There have been times when she wanted to kill him, but now she is terrified of a life without him.”
Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne did not respond to RadarOnline.com’s Post requests for comment.
ANTIMUSIC has also reported the following…
Sharon Osbourne has spoken out against tabloid reports that her husband Ozzy Osbourne is near death following a series of health issues that have kept the metal legend off the road.
Some of the incendiary claims stated Ozzy “will be dead by Christmas,” and that he was “on a crazy train to death.” Sharon took the opportunity to address those reports on her television show The Talks, shooting them down and assuring fans that “Ozzy ain’t going nowhere.”
She added, “I’m not lost for words a lot, as you all know. But why do people just say this was true? How cold and callous are those headlines? Where’s people’s empathy?”
Ozzy has had a very difficult time with his health starting with pneumonia and suffering an injury that dislodges some metal rods that were placed after an accident. But he has gone on record lately saying that he is doing better and even recorded nine songs with Post Malone’s producer, Andrew Watt, in just in four weeks.
Sharon said on the TV show about the troubling headlines, “It’s not true, by any stretch of the imagination. I’ve been open with everyone and so has Ozzy.
“He had a terrible, terrible bout of bad luck with his health, one thing after another. And then after his fall that he had, it’s been awful for him. But he’s getting better. He’s recuperating. Why be so like, ‘He’s on a crazy train.’ How disrespectful to anyone. … Ozzy ain’t going nowhere.”
Ozzy Osbourne’s daughter Kelly is denying the report that her father is on his “death bed.”
In her Instagram Story, Kelly takes aim at the gossip site Radar Online. “This is utter bullshit.”
