Ozzy Osbourne issues an update on his health
Ozzy Osbourne, 74, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease back in 2003 and has been open about his health since.
The Black Sabbath frontman has now been pictured this week leaving an office building in Santa Monica, Los Angeles in a wheelchair.
He appeared frail as he was seen wearing a face mask while being pushed along by two companions.
Ozzy sported casual clothing, including a black t-shirt and sweatpants, while his knees were covered with a blue blanket.
His appearance comes after Ozzy opened up about the “absolute hell” he and his family have been through in the last five years due to his declining health.

Ozzy was joined by his wife Sharon Osbourne and their children Kelly and Jack, during Piers Morgan’s TalkTV programme in September.
During the interview, Ozzy admitted he had his last surgical procedure a weeks before after years of “hell”.
Speaking about his health, the rocker explained: “I finally had my last procedure two days ago. I can’t believe I’ve come to the end of it.
“The main thing is over now, I’m done with the surgery. But it’s been five years of absolute hell for me and my family.

“The family has been so supportive of me. I couldn’t have done it without them. It’s been a really bad scene. I have Parkinson’s, but I never think about it.”
Jack added: “That’s the biggest misconception, so many people think what’s happened with dad over the last five years is the result of Parkinson’s but it’s the neck injury and the fall he took in 2019.”
Ozzy explained he broke a bone in his neck during a quad bike accident, but he did not realise the severity of the injury.
He said: “I carried on working with it, until I had a fall and then it just, everything came undone… I don’t gripe, I get on with it. If you are still moving, you ain’t going to be dead.”
Over the years, Ozzy has battled a series of health conditions after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s back in 2003, although he didn’t make his condition known until 2020.
The legendary Black Sabbath frontman has also undergone major spinal surgeries in the past after a quad-biking accident that happened two decades ago.
As a result of his health conditions, Ozzy has had to cancel a series of performances, leaving many to speculate if he will ever tour again.
