Kelly Osbourne, the famous daughter of rock singer Ozzy Osbourne, took to Instagram this weekend to update fans on the Prince of Darkness’ health. Osbourne (71) revealed back in January that he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease, forcing the former Black Sabbath frontman to postpone his 2020 No More Tours 2 concert dates, after the singer had already postponed all of his 2019 performances following a serious fall.
In the post, Kelly said she was able to visit her parents Ozzy and Sharon for the first time in three weeks, a result of state-mandated quarantines due to COVID-19 in California. Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne are both at high-risk for contracting the novel coronavirus, due to their age. This prompted Kelly to start the “#StayHomeForOzzy” campaign last week, asking fans to practice safe social distancing techniques and to only go out in public if absolutely necessary.
Kelly shared a picture of her and her parents sitting around the pool, wearing face masks and practicing good social distancing. In the caption, she noted, “They are doing well and are save and sound for now.” Additionally, Kelly included a screenshot from her father, saying, “It was so lovely seeing you today. Toddles it breaks my heart that I couldn’t give you a kiss and a hug.”
In an interview last week with Entertainment Tonight, Kelly expanded further on the progress her father is making with his treatment.
“Seeing after one treatment of stem cell what has happened and the progress that he’s made is mind-blowing,” she said. “He wants to get up. He wants to do things. He wants to be part of the world again. He’s walking better. He’s talking better. His symptoms are lessening. He is building the muscle strength back that he needs after his spine surgery.”
She also noted that the current state of self-isolation and widespread quarantines have been rather ill-timed for Ozzy, as he has finally built up the strength to leave the house.
“Everything is starting to fall into place now and it has given us so much hope. We are very grateful to the doctors that are helping him,” she said. “He’s ready to get out of the house and now he can’t get out of the house. He keeps saying to me, ‘I’ve been on quarantine for almost two years, and now I’m feeling better and the world is on quarantine.'”
