After Ozzy Osbourne‘s ailing health, National Enquirer claimed he “will be dead by Christmas,” while Radar Online said he is “on a crazy train to an early death.”
Sharon addressed the rumors during yesterday’s episode of her daytime talk show “The Talk.”
She said: “I’m actually not lost for words a lot, as you all know, but why do people just say this was true? How cold and callous are those headlines? Where’s people’s empathy?
“I’ve been open with everyone and so has Ozzy,” Sharon continued. “He had a terrible, terrible bout of bad luck with his health, one thing after another. And then after his fall that he had, it’s been awful for him. But he’s getting better.
“He’s recuperating. Why be, like, ‘He’s [on a] crazy train,’… It’s, like, how disrespectful to anyone… And I’d just like to say something: Ozzy ain’t going nowhere.”
In a recent interview with The Sun, Ozzy has revealed that he finished work on his next solo album.
“I’ve made a new album and it’s helped get me back on track,” Legendary BLACK SABBATH singer said. “I was just lying in my own self-pity for months. It’s the greatest album I’ve done.”
He said the record came after he was asked to appear on a track by Post Malone.
“I’d never even heard of this kid. He wanted me to sing on his song “Take What You Want,” so I did and then one thing led to another. I started recording a new album with Post Malone’s producer Andrew Watt. It’s only nine tracks but it was a catalyst to get me to where I am today.”
“If it wasn’t for making this record I would still be on traction, thinking, ‘I’m going to be lying here for ever’. I’ve missed music so badly. My fans are so loyal and so good. Up until making the album I thought I was dying. But that got me off my a**e.”

“This is my first recording in a studio for ten years, so I do feel a bit out of touch. Music goes straight online these days and that’s quicker than it takes me to write a text. It’s all about downloads and streaming now. What the f*ck does that mean? What’s Spotify? I thought it was a skin problem where you woke up spotified.
“The album was all finished in four weeks,” he added.” I said to Sharon that I didn’t feel like I’d made an album because we haven’t ended up screaming at each other.”
Ozzy has announced the postponement of all his 2019 tour dates, inclusive of shows in North America and Europe, as he recovers from an injury sustained while dealing with his recent bout of pneumonia.
