Ozzy Osbourne “Breathing On His Own” Following Pneumonia Scare


Ozzy Osbourne is now reported to be breathing on his own, after being rushed to intensive care amid worries he could develop pneumonia.

After Ozzy was recently forced to cancel his next tour when he got the flu. He later developed bronchitis and was sent to hospital by his doctors.

A source told The Sun,

“Doctors feared he could contract pneumonia which, in a person over 70, can be fatal. 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.”

Sharon Osbourne gave an update on her husband’s condition on CBS’s The Talk, “He’s doing good. He’s breathing on his own.” She added that Ozzy is “overcome by the response he’s had.”

Ozzy spoke about the tour cancellations via the NME last month, “I’m completely devastated for having to postpone the European leg of my tour. It just seems that since October everything I touch has turned to shit.”

“First the staph infection in my thumb and now coming down with the flu and bronchitis. I want to apologise to all of my fans who have been so loyal over the years, my band, my crew and to Judas Priest for letting you all down.”

He added: “However, I promise the tour with Judas Priest will be completed. It’s being rescheduled right now to start in September. Again, I apologize to everyone. God Bless. Love you all, Ozzy.”
