Ozzy Osbourne was photographed grocery shopping in Los Angeles, only days after his wife Sharon was rushed to the hospital for a medical emergency.
This week, Ozzy Osbourne was caught in Los Angeles using a walking stick to pick up groceries. He appeared to be frail. Following a fall in 2019 that aggravated an existing neck issue, the Black Sabbath leader now walks with the assistance of a walking stick.
Ozzy Osbourne, 74, was seen shopping without his wife Sharon, 70, who had just been released from the hospital following a medical incident while watching a supernatural television show.
The frontman of Black Sabbath appeared frail as he picked up products while leaning on his walking stick or the cart itself.
On Monday, Ozzy was caught shopping for groceries at Erewhon Market in Los Angeles. He was dressed casually in a grey tartan jacket and black sweatpants.
This comes after Ozzy recently stated that he “can’t walk much now” due to a fall in 2019 that aggravated a neck problem caused by a quad bike accident in 2003.
Ozzy confirmed his Parkinson’s disease diagnosis in 2020, more than a year after worsening the neck problem, creating serious movement issues for the artist.
On Monday, Ozzy Osbourne was sighted at Erewhon Market in Los Angeles, where he was helped by a man who was clinging onto the cart for stability. After his wife Sharon was given the all-clear to leave the hospital, the musician went around the upscale shop stocking up on supplies.
Sharon subsequently apologized, informing her Instagram followers that she was “back home and doing fine” while uploading a festive holiday snap with her dog.
The hitmaker was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2003, and in 2019, he suffered a horrific fall that compounded a neck injury he sustained in a quad bike accident in 2003. Parkinson’s disease, according to the NHS, is a condition in which portions of the brain gradually degrade over time. Delay in movement, stiff or inflexible muscles and excessive shaking in certain body regions are the most typical symptoms.
Ozzy Osbourne’s quad bike accident on his English rural estate in 2001 resulted in nerve damage that was reactivated by a fall in 2019. The actor was left with 15 screws in his back, nerve pain in his neck, back, shoulders, and arms, and apprehension over receiving “bolts in his neck” during spinal surgery.
Ozzy Osbourne returned to the stage in August, just two months after undergoing “life-altering surgery,” to perform at the Commonwealth Games closing ceremony in Birmingham, his birthplace. Ozzy stated earlier this month in an interview with The Sun that he was told he would be permanently disabled after his first spinal surgery in 2019.
Ozzy Osbourne says he’d like to keep traveling but has severe mobility issues. “I want to be carrying it out,” he stated recently. “This procedure had to be performed. You have no idea. I can still think, be creative, and sing, but I can’t walk far anymore.”
“You have no idea how frustrating life has gotten. It’s amazing how fast life passes and how one wrong decision may ruin everything for a long time. I’ve never felt so ill in my entire life. That doctor told me that if I didn’t get the procedure, I’d be paralyzed from the neck down.”
