On Good Morning America today, Ozzy Osbourne described 2019 as the "worst, longest, most painful, miserable year of my life" and revealed that he is suffering from a type of Parkinson's disease. From Gil Kaufman's report in Billboard:
"It wasn't really a problem for a long while," Osbourne says of why he waited so long to share the news about a horrible fall at home that re-aggravated an old injury and sidelined him for much of 2019. But, he says, wife/manager Sharon Osbourne told her husband he seemed different after the tumble and wondered what was going on.
"When I had the fall, it was pitch black. I went to the bathroom and I fell," explained Osbourne, 71, of a fall in his Los Angeles home that aggravated an old injury from a 2003 ATV accident that required surgery. "I just fell and landed like a slam on the floor and I remember lying there thinking, 'Well, you've done it now,' really calm. Sharon [called] an ambulance. After that, it was all downhill."
