Ozzy Osbourne's losing battle with Parkinson's puts a crimp in wife Sharon's plans to relocate to England
The relocation has also been complicated by Ozzy Osbourne's recent declaration that he would never go without the family's eleven dogs
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Reality stars Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne's marriage is apparently falling apart.
Ozzy, the ailing heavy metal artist, 74, and his TV personality wife, 71, are planning to relocate to their home country of England, but they won't be leaving their 11 dogs behind.
Ozzy will receive home care for Parkinson's disease
The National Enquirer claims that Ozzy will receive home care for his crippling Parkinson's disease in England once the pair moves out of their $15 million Los Angeles property.
The relocation, meanwhile, was complicated by Ozzy's recent declaration that he would never go without the family's eleven dogs. In a recent episode of 'The Osbournes' podcast, the former leader of Black Sabbath declared, "I ain't going anywhere without these f*****g dogs!" Ozzy also disclosed, "They all sleep on my bed," as reported by Radar Online.
The BBC show 'Home to Roost', which is intended to document the Osbournes' new existence, may be derailed by Ozzy's obstinacy. The family dogs, who frequently caused mischief within the house and irritated Ozzy, were prominently featured in the family's name-brand MTV reality series, which ran from 2002 to 2005.
Ozzy 'lives for the stage'
Ozzy looked indignant when Sharon told their son Jack that the couple was leaving California behind and that they would be traveling to the UK as soon as the house there was completed. Ozzy responded, "Your mum is going to be very lonely."
Ozzy's family has had a difficult few years due to his deteriorating health. After Ozzy's plans to return to the stage were derailed by his worsening spinal problems and Parkinson's disease, he reportedly plunged into a deep melancholy.
Even though Ozzy had to postpone his 2023 No More Tours II dates, his family supported him and tried to cheer him up.
Ozzy's interactions with fans at the Famous Monsters convention in Pennsylvania back in early October gave Sharon, Jack, and Kelly, their daughter, optimism that the patriarch would receive some much-needed encouragement.
"Ozzy lives for the stage and sitting around the house all day is eating him up and will challenge his will to continue," an insider told the National Enquirer. "Sharon, Jack and Kelly were determined to get Ozzy out — and they hope headlining this convention and being greeted by his adoring fans will boost his sagging spirits."
"Ozzy still has dreams of being well enough and able to stand for two hours and play a few concerts next year,or now, the fan convention will have to feed his ego," the source added.
