The insider narrates Ozzy Osbourne’s health woes

An insider who knew the Osbourne household stated that Ozzy’s flu had worsened and there was a risk of it developing into pneumonia. This could be fatal in an older person. Hence his doctors did not want to take any chance and admitted him. The insider said:

“Poor old Ozzy hasn’t had the best of times. He’s been really struggling with flu which turned into bronchitis. Doctors feared he could contract pneumonia which, in a person over 70, can be fatal.”

The source further added:

“This sparked a lot of panic among those closest to him, but doctors reassured everyone he was in the best possible hands. 

Ozzy’s a fighter, and is getting better day by day. The worst is over, he’s smiling again, and he can’t wait to get up on stage.”

Just a week back, his official Facebook page had announced that he would not be able to do his concert in the UK and Europe and will be postponing it. Ozzy had started his No More Torus 2 tour. The Facebook post read:

“After seeing his physician again, OSBOURNE has been diagnosed with a severe upper-respiratory infection which the doctor feels could develop into pneumonia given the physicality of the live performances and an extensive travel schedule throughout Europe in harsh winter conditions,”

There was also a personal statement from the Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy himself and he had expressed his sadness at the postponement. Ozzy wrote:

“It just seems that since October everything I touch has turned to (expletive), First the staph infection in my thumb and now coming down with the flu and bronchitis.”

And now this sudden downward turn of Ozzy’s health had led to more concern amongst his fans. But if the hospitalization is for the singer’s betterment then the fans do not mind it.
