Just a few days after beginning her new television show on Talk TV, Sharon Osbourne announced her husband Ozzy Osbourne has officially tested positive for the Covid-19 virus.
In an interview with Talk TV she stated she will have to pause her show to care for her sick husband because she’s “very worried” about him. She’ll be leaving the UK to fly to Los Angeles to “hold him and kiss him with about 3 masks on.”
The 73-year-old heavy metal legend has gone through the ringer in the past few years in terms of health. He has been battling Parkinson’s disease, hand infections, and is expected to undergo surgery in the near future. However, this is the first time he’s caught Covid, and Sharon said with a hopeful attitude, “”It’ll take me a week to get my old man back on his feet again, and I will be back in a week.”
In happier news, Ozzy announced earlier this month that he just finished a new album, which will feature Tony Iommi, Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck. We don’t yet know when it will be released, but Ozzy assured on social media, ““I’m so happy to let everyone know that I finished my new album this week and delivered it to my label Epic Records.” He continued, “I’ll be sharing all the information about the album and its upcoming release with you in the next several weeks.”
