Sharon Osbourne Explains Ozzy’s Hand Injury, Reveals He’s Due For More Surgery Today


Ozzy Osbourne‘s wife and manager Sharon Osbourne has shared details regarding the hand injury which forced him to cancel his October shows. Last weekend Ozzy underwent emergency hand surgery to treat the issue but didn’t heal as planned. Speaking of the injury via CBS‘ ‘The Talk‘ earlier today, October 12th, Sharon stated:

“[He] had a little cut on his thumb. You know when you pull the side of your nail and he just left it. And then he hit it on a door. It started to get bigger and bigger, and then his middle finger, the same thing happened … and Saturday morning we took him into the emergency room and what had happened from a tiny thing here on the side of his nail, it had turned into two different infections in his hand.

He had to have this operation where they cut the side of his thumb and this [middle] finger and they had to get rid of the infection. It’s been from something you think is absolutely nothing. It’s unbelievable.”

She also revealed that he is due to undergo another procedure today as well:

“…It’s so sad for him. In this portion of his tour, he had four shows left to do in California, but his hand still hasn’t healed. And it’s one of these things that every day, they go, ‘no. Tomorrow you’re gonna be fine. La la la.’ It hasn’t been fine. And, in fact, he’s going into hospital today; he’s gonna have another procedure done on his hand. And so, we didn’t wanna keep canceling them — change it again, change it again — so we just said, ‘Okay, let’s cancel these four shows,’ and they’re all gonna be rescheduled. He will perform.”
