Ozzy Osbourne looks frail and unrecognizable amid Sharon health scare

  • A frail Ozzy Osbourne was spotted leaning on a cane while shopping at the luxury supermarket Erewhon Market in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

The “Crazy Train” rocker, 74, looked almost unrecognizable with chin-length gray hair and a gray tartan coat paired with black trainers. A female assistant helped him maneuver his shopping cart through the store.

 

His LA sighting comes days after his wife, Sharon, was hospitalized after suffering a medical emergency while filming scenes for son Jack’s paranormal TV series.

In early 2020, the Prince of Darkness publicly revealed his battle with Parkinson’s disease, though he was reportedly diagnosed in 2003. He now uses the walking stick for that reason.

 

Throughout the course of his life, Ozzy has dealt with alcohol and substance abuse issues, as well as hospitalization stints.

 

Since 2019, he has undergone several surgeries to fix his neck and back issues that stemmed from a home fall and an ATV accident 16 years prior. His last operation was in June when he had pins removed and realigned in his neck and back.

Wasn't he leaving the United States because of the gun violence?  I guess it was all talk just to promote his latest album.

I thought he'd left in a snit and gone back to live in Merry Olde England because there's too much crime in the US.  So what's he doing shopping in LA?

 

I was counting on never having to hear a word about him again.

He's an old looking 74, but I don't think he's unrecognizable.

Well, this is jmo but I don't think he looks unrecognizable.

 

Maybe the reporter is a 20-30 something and didn't know what he looked like in his heyday.

I saw an interview with Sharon where she said they were renovating a house in England, and that is why they had not moved yet.

Yeah, I actually don't think he looks THAT bad. I mean he is 74 and hasn't exactly had normal wear and tear😂

Unfortunately age catches up to all of us.  He led a hard life as well.  

 

My brother has Parkinson and dementia as well  and in a few short years his looks have really changed.  Sad to see.  Only a couple years older than me.

 

I'm surprised Ozzie even goes out.
