Ozzy Osbourne's daughter Kelly has blasted a report that suggested her father was on his "deathbed," calling it "utter bulls**t." Kelly took to Instagram to refute a Radar Online story that claimed the heavy metal legend was "in such dire straits" that he "didn't even realize his wife, Sharon, missed the holidays with him for the first time in 40 years."

Kelly wrote, "Today I had a wonderful start to 2020. I went out to lunch with my family. Then I spent the rest of the day laughing and hanging out with my dad. I come home to read sickening articles about my dad supposedly being on his 'death bed' sometimes the media makes me sick!!"

She added, "It's no secret that my dad has had a rough year when it comes to his health but come the F*CK on this is utter bulls**t."

Ozzy's son Jack posted a picture of his family online last week from Christmas Eve, in which it seemed that the Black Sabbath singer was in good spirits. TMZ has also posted footage of Ozzy and Sharon out in Los Angeles on New Year's Day (January 1st).

Ozzy battled pneumonia earlier this year and had to undergo surgery after aggravating an old injury. As a result, Ozzy scrapped all his 2019 tour dates, both in North America and Europe, while he recovered. He plans to resume touring this year as he prepares to release his first solo LP in 10 years, Ordinary Man.
