The update came less that a week after the initial America’s Got TalentJudge said to viewers The Talk UK about Ozzy’s operation. “It’s really going to determine the rest of his life,” she said of the 73-year-old musician on Friday, June 10, without describing the surgery in great detail.

The Black Sabbath performer has experienced a few setbacks with his health, revealing in January 2020 that he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease the previous year. “It’s been terribly challenging for us all,” he said on Good Morning America. “I did my last show New Year’s Eve at The Forum. I fell and broke my neck. I had to have surgery on my neck, which screwed all my nerves.”

Ozzy continued to describe the symptoms that he experienced before he was officially diagnosed. “I got a numbness down [my] arm for the surgery, my legs keep going cold,” he recalled. “I don’t know if that’s the Parkinson’s or what, you know, but that’s … the problem. Because they had to cut nerves in the process of surgery. I’d never heard of nerve pain, and it’s a weird feeling.”

Amid his challenges, Sharon has stood by Ozzy’s side. “There’s so many different types of Parkinson’s,” she explained in January 2020. “It’s not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination, but it does affect certain nerves in your body. And it’s like you have a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day.”

They have shared children Aimee Osbourne Kelly Osbourne, Jack Osbourne and Jack Osbourne since 1982. Over the years, Sharon and Ozzy have been candid about their highs and lows in the public eye, including the heavy metal rocker’s 1989 stay in medical detention after attempting to strangle his wife. In a 2020 documentary, Ozzy said the incident was not his “greatest” moment.

“I had no idea who was sat across from me on the sofa but it wasn’t my husband,” Sharon said in A&E’s Biography: Nine Lives Of Ozzy Osbourne, describing Ozzy’s drug-induced haze. “He goes to a stage where he gets that look in his eyes, the shutters were down and I just couldn’t get through to him. … Thank God the judge put him in treatment for six months. I had time to really think about what he should do.”

Sharon decided not to press charges. “I told him, ‘I don’t want the money … but if you do this again, either I am going to kill you or you are going to kill me. And what about the children?’” she recalled.
