Jack Osbourne Says Ozzy is “Doing Much Better” After Flu Hospitalization


Ozzy Osbourne checked into the hospital earlier this week after battling a “severe” case of the flu for over a week. The illness had already resulted in the cancelation of the remainder of Ozzy’s U.K. and European tour.

The Prince of Darkness’s son Jack (what do you call the son of a Prince?) has now shared an update on social media indicating that his dad is responding well to treatment and that his condition is improving. The brief update came via Instagram:

“Fresh cut. New glasses. Sunny day. All is well. Now I’m off to see dad. He’s doing much better. Thanks for all your messages)”

I’m still so touched by the fact that Sharon went home to grab a blanket and a suitcase before returning to the hospital to stay by her husband’s side overnight. Just adorable!

No word yet on rescheduled Euro and U.K. dates for Ozzy, but we’ll keep you posted.
