Damn. Terrible news to hear from the Ozzy Osbourne camp.

Wishing Ozzy and the Osbourne family all the best.

As reported by Rachel Sadler of Newshub:

Ozzy Osbourne has revealed he is battling Parkinson's disease.

The Black Sabbath singer, 71, told US TV show Good Morning America (GMA) he was diagnosed with the neurodegenerative disease following surgery after a fall in February 2019.

He said it had been "terribly challenging" for him and his family.

He said he's now on medication for Parkinson's and nerve pain following the surgery. He also has numbness down one arm and his legs are often "going cold".

His wife Sharon told GMA the diagnosis isn't a death sentence "by any stretch of the imagination".

Rumours had been circulating about his health, including one report from Radar Online earlier in January that claimed he was "bedridden" and "losing his marbles".

Osbourne's daughter Kelly rubbished the claims, saying while he'd had a rough year, the attacks were "utter bullshit".
