Ozzy Osbourne cuts his muteness on his fight with Parkinson’s disease
Ozzy Osbourne is identified as “the Prince of Darkness” and for his crazy antics on stage and off, but the singer and television personality is opening up about something more serious.
In a private interview with Robin Roberts for “Good Morning America,” the legendary rocker, his kids and his wife and supervisor, Sharon Osbourne, are shedding light on the private wellness battle he felt after a fall and Parkinson’s diagnosis latest February.
“It’s been challenging for us all,” Osbourne said Roberts. “I did my last show New Year’s Eve at The Forum. Then I had a bad fall. I had to have surgery on my neck, which screwed all my nerves.”
To complicate the matters further, Osbourne revealed he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, a neurodegenerative disorder that progresses slowly in most people, and has no cure.
“It’s PRKN 2,” said his wife, Sharon. “There are 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. And it’s — it’s like you have a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day.”
