Jack Osbourne revealed his father, 70-year-old Ozzy Osbourne, is “doing really well” after his hospitalization in February.


During the Critics’ Choice Real TV Awards, Jack Osbourne opened up to Us Weekly about his rockstar father, Ozzy Osbourne’s recovery after suffering from pneumonia and minor complications.

“He’s doing really well; he’s hanging in there,” the 33-year-old said. “I spoke to him today, so he’s in good spirits.


Ozzy was rushed to the hospital after what seemed like the flu and received medical treatment, resulting in the cancelation of some concerts.

His wife, Sharon Osbourne tweeted about the circumstance and disclosed suggestions from the doctor that will best help Ozzy recover faster.


The former Black Sabbath frontman also tweeted about his postponed tour dates, including the rescheduled dates on February 2020. The tweet read:

“OZZY will postpone all his tour dates as he recovers from injury sustained while dealing with pneumonia. Ozzy fell at his Los Angeles home aggravating years-old injuries (from his 2003 ATV accident) that required surgery.”


The 70-year-old was “completely devastated for having to postpone the European leg” of his tour. He also explained the previous mishaps that he encountered over the past month.

“I just want to apologize 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,” Ozzy said.


In March, another heartbreaking news hit Ozzy after his band's guitarist, Bernie Torme, died in a London hospital due to pneumonia in both lungs. He was reportedly dependent on life support weeks before his demise.

“What a sad day. We’ve lost another great musician. Bernie was a gentle soul with a heart of gold. He will be dearly missed. I send my sincere condolences to his family, friends and fans. Rest in Peace Bernie," tweeted Ozzy.
