Ozzy Os­bourne reaf­firms he’s ‘not dy­ing’

Edmonton Sun - - SHOWBIZ -

british rocker Ozzy Os­bourne has post­poned his solo euro­pean tour for a sec­ond time but in­sisted that he was not dy­ing or re­tir­ing de­spite a year of bad health.

“I’m not dy­ing; I am re­cov­er­ing. It’s just tak­ing a lit­tle bit longer than ev­ery­one thought it would,” the for­mer black sab­bath front­man, 70, said in a video posted on his so­cial me­dia ac­counts.

Os­bourne has been in and out of hos­pi­tal for al­most a year be­cause of a fall that re­quired ex­ten­sive surgery on his spine and neck as well as pneu­mo­nia, flu com­pli­ca­tions and in­fec­tions in his hand. The emer­gen­cies and other set­backs have prompted spec­u­la­tion in tabloid me­dia that he is near death. Os­bourne said he was “bored stiff” with be­ing in bed all day.
