Ozzy Osbourne has been hospitalized as he recovers from complications due to a bout of the flu. The Black Sabbath singer's wife and manager Sharon shared the news on Wednesday (February 6th), writing on Twitter, “As some of you may have heard, Ozzy was admitted to hospital following some complications from the flu. His doctors feel this is the best way to get him on a quicker road to recovery. Thanks to everyone for their concern and love.”
Ozzy reportedly checked into Keck Hospital in Los Angeles on Monday (February 4th). Sharon and the couple's son Jack showed up at the hospital with security in tow. Sharon later left and returned a short time later with a suitcase and a blanket — a possible sign that she planned to stay by Ozzy's side.
Sharon apparently skipped Tuesday's (February 5th) episode of her TV show The Talk so that she could care for her husband. This is Ozzy's second stay in the hospital. Last October, the metal legend contracted a staph infection that required him to have surgery on his hand and resulted in him canceling several shows.
Last month, Ozzy was forced to postpone the entire European leg of his “No More Tours 2” run on doctors' orders, just one day after postponing the first four dates on the U.K. stretch of the trek. Ozzy was diagnosed with a severe upper respiratory infection which his doctor felt could develop into pneumonia if he stayed on the road.
