Ozzy Osbourne recently cancelled his remaining U.S. dates due to infections in his hand that required surgery. Now, in the below video from CBS‘ “The Talk”, Ozzy’s wife Sharon Osbourne offered an explanation for the injury and also revealed that the singer would be undergoing more surgery today (October 12).
Sharon said the following:
“[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 added:
“…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.”
