Ozzy Osbourne is a rock icon in his own right, but it seems the star has been secretly battling with his health and was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2003.

Now, Sharon Osbourne has given an update about Ozzy’s health after he underwent “a very major operation.”

Many recognize Ozzy from The Osbournes…

The hilarious reality show followed Ozzy, whose real name is John, and his wife, Sharon, with their 2 kids, Jack and Kelly.

Their lives were a little crazy…

But that’s what made the world love them.

But it wasn’t The Osbournes that made Ozzy famous…

It’s a sad reality that many Ozzy fans don’t even realize that he is in one of the most famous and influential metal bands of all time...

Black Sabbath.

Hailing from Birmingham in the U.K. Black Sabbath was the first of its kind all the way back in 1968. Ozzy teamed up with bandmates, Geezer Butler, Tony Iommi, and Bill Ward, and, together, they started the era of heavy rock and metal music.

Sabbath wasn’t only famous for Paranoid…

They were, and still are, renowned for their wild lifestyles back in their touring days.

The band, and Ozzy, in particular, were well known for their alcoholism and heavy drug use.

Ozzy has fallen under fire for numerous things, such as biting the head off a live bat on stage in 1982, snorting a line of live ants when on tour with Motley Crue, and taking every illegal drug that has ever existed.

But one of the worst things that he has ever done was attempting to strangle his wife, Sharon, to death in 1984 when heavily under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

However, he eventually decided it was time to get cleaned up.

And his sobriety has allowed him to focus on his music and family life.

Speaking to Rolling Stone back in 2017, he said: “Now I’m coming on 5 years clean and sober, and I’ve realized what a f****** idiot I was. I mean, I’m still nuts, but in control of it a bit more.”

But, he had been secretly struggling with an illness he had been diagnosed with in 2003.

And having “ran out of excuses,” finally revealed what he has been diagnosed with.

The star appeared on Good Morning America.

In the emotional interview, Ozzy along with his wife, Sharon, opened up about the health struggles that have been heavily impacting his life.

It has not been an easy journey for him.

Things went downhill after the star went under the knife and began experiencing nerve pain.

Talking in the interview, he explained why he had decided to come out about his struggle.

  via Getty Images  

“I’m no good with secrets, I cannot walk around with it anymore. Because it’s like I’m running out of excuses.”

Sharon then interjected by revealing her husband’s illness.

  via Getty Images  

“Parkin 2 which is a form of Parkinson’s and it is – there’s so many different types of Parkinson’s – it’s not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination but it does affect certain nerves in your body.”

Parkinson’s is a brain disorder categorized as a presence of “certain recognizable symptoms” which most commonly include uncontrollable shaking or tremor, lack of coordination, and speaking difficulties.

Stage 2 is considered a moderate form of the illness.

“A year ago next month, I was in a shocking state.” “I’m on a host of medication, mainly for this surgery.

  via Getty Images  

“I’ve got numbness down this arm from the surgery, my legs are going cold. I don’t know if it’s the Parkinson’s or what. That’s the problem.”

But that’s not all…

  via Getty Images  

“We’ve kind of reached a point here, in this country, where we can’t go any further because we’ve got all the answers we can get here,” she said. “So in April we’re going to a professor in Switzerland and he deals with getting your immune system at its peak. We’re going to go where ever we can go to seek answers.”

Ozzy’s days are varied in how well he is doing.

  via Getty Images  

“It’s like you have a good day, a good day and then a really bad day.”

But, the news doesn’t stop him from living his life.

In an interview with Kerrang!,  the star said: “Do I ever think about when my time’s gonna come? I think about it; I don’t worry about it.

“I won’t be here in another fifteen years or whatever, not that much longer, but I don’t dwell on it. It’s gonna happen to us all.”

  via Getty Images  

Sadly, that wasn’t all… Ozzy said that he’s in “unbelievable pain 24/7” and claimed that even prescribed painkillers aren’t offering any relief.

And what he said was heartbreaking…

  via Getty Images  

“Am I happy now? No. I haven’t got my health. That thing knocked the s*** out of me, man, but I’m still here.” “In fact, I worried about [death] more when I was younger than I do now. I just try to enjoy things as much as possible, even though that’s so f****** hard sometimes.”

And in April this year, Sharon Osbourne talked about Ozzy’s health on her new talk show, The Talk UK

  via Getty Images  

Sharon explained that her husband has tested positive for the coronavirus.
And in doing so, she also expressed her concern for him.

People took to Twitter to send their wishes…

“The prince of darkness has fallen ill with Covid. I am sure @OzzyOsbourne
could use a lot of positive vibes!” one person wrote.

Someone then responded with a sweet message: “Take care of yourself Ozzy! You got this… I know you’ve been vaccinated so hopefully that’s going to help some. We all love you! God bless.”

“I spoke to him and he’s OK. I am very worried about Ozzy right now,” she explained as per People. “We’ve gone two years without him catching COVID and it’s just Ozzy’s luck he would get it now.”

  via Getty Images  

“It’ll take me a week to get my old man back on his feet again, and I will be back [on the show] in a week… We’re gonna get him a negative test by next week,” she continued.

Sharon also said that she will “hold him and kiss him with about 3 masks on,” when she sees him again.

  via Getty Images  

“My family is my life,” she said holding back tears.

“I can’t believe my luck that I’m missing the show when I’ve only been there 3 days. it’s terrible. I can’t believe it. 3 days and I’m missing the show,” she said laughing.

Sharon also expressed that she hadn’t had the chance to tell their family that her husband had the virus because he was “diagnosed in the middle of the night,” but said that they will “rally round” and be with him.

Since then, Ozzy has made a full recovery from Coronavirus, but that isn’t the end of his battles.
