Ozzy Osbourne shares health update; his A&E documentary gets premiere date
As you may know, Ozzy Osbourne has been dealing with health issues for the past few years, and he gave an update on his health in an interview with Jenny McCarthy on SiriusXM this past weekend. "I'm not back to 100 percent. I'm about 75 percent there, but it's such a slow recovery," he said. "I've been in such a bad state with pain; I'm still having a lot of pain," he adds.
"There was a point I was convinced that I was dying," he continues. "I was in that much discomfort and pain and misery. I thought they were all hiding it from me. I remember saying to Sharon, 'You've gotta level with me. Is it worse than you're making it out?' She says, 'No.’"
"He thought we were hiding it from him," Sharon added.
