Ozzy Osbourne has been seen using a wheelchair after declaring he would have no further spinal surgeries.
The Black Sabbath legend, 74, has undergone multiple operations in recent years, since exacerbating an existing back injury with a 2019 fall.
Ozzy has been pictured using a wheelchair, walkers and receiving help walking from others following four operations in the last few years, and in September declared he would be having one more surgery on his neck and that would be it, regardless of the outcome, as he ‘can’t do it anymore.’
Now the star has been seen out and about in Santa Monica, California, accompanied by two people as he used a wheelchair.
The grandfather and father-of-five was snapped exiting an office building, being pushed in his chair by an assistant through a car park.
Ozzy dressed in his usual attire – an all-black outfit – and wore his brunette hair naturally, rather than the blonde, black or red dye he preferred previously.
He also wore a medical mask along with a watch and gold rings, and was seen spotting the camera as the two assistants
In 2019, Ozzy underwent surgery after suffering a fall at his home in LA which he feared at first had left him paralysed.
And earlier this year, the rocker announced that he was unable to go on tour following multiple procedures to treat his spinal injury.
In September, Ozzy told The Osbournes Podcast that he would not have any more surgery ‘because I can’t do it anymore.’
‘Regardless of the way it ends up … I’m not doing it anymore. I can’t.’
Describing how the injury and subsequent surgeries have affected him, the reality star admitted his ‘feet feel like I’ve got bricks tied to them whenI’m walking.’
That said, Ozzy has plenty more fire in him, with some choice words for people who think he’s on his ‘last leg’.
Those words? ‘F*** off.’
The Osbourne Podcast has also seen the famous family discuss shocking moments from their past, with Kelly Osbourne recently making headlines for reminiscing on the moment she attacked a former nanny who allegedly tried straddling Ozzy when he was passed out.
Kelly was ‘in charge of putting Dad to bed’ as he was so drunk, but then the family’s nanny – ‘who will remain nameless for legal reasons’ – entered the room and began ‘straddling him.’
Kelly leaped into action, saying she ‘grabbed her from the back of the head and pulled her off.
She revealed that she, Jack and Sharon poured coffee grounds, dog food and baked beans over her while she herself had passed out drunk.
The next morning the family went to breakfast and by the time they returned, the nanny had apparently ‘done a runner’.
