The reason Ozzy Osbourne thinks he only has ten years ‘at best’ left to live has been made public.

Although a scientist labeled Black Sabbath’s lead singer, Ozzy Osbourne, a.k.a. the Prince of Darkness, a “genetic mutant,” in 2010, he believes his time will come within the next ten years.

The 74-year-old disclosed that he underwent open back surgery earlier this year, and he has since shared his future health projections.

Osbourne suffered many back surgery after a fall in 2019 that displaced metal rods that had been inserted into his spine after a quad bike accident in 2003.

According to Osbourne, the “second surgery,” which was performed earlier this year, went “drastically wrong” and “virtually left [him] crippled,” Rolling Stone is told.

The vocalist says, “It’s definitely got me rattled. After the second and third, I expected to be up and running, but the last one gave me a f**king rod in my back. They also had to excavate all of it because they discovered a tumor in one of the vertebrae.

“It’s pretty rough, man, and my balance is all f**ked up.”

In addition to Osbourne’s Parkinson’s disease, which she was first diagnosed with in 2003 but just came forward with publicly in 2020, the singer also has a tumor.

“Every time I scratch my a**e, they put it down to Parkinson’s!” says he. “Reading the papers is driving me crazy because they keep saying things like, ‘Ozzy is fighting his last battle.'” He has finished singing “Paranoid.” To be honest, I don’t really give Parkinson’s disease much thought.”

Osbourne has considered dying, even though he doesn’t “dread” it and doesn’t “want to have a painful and miserable existence,” despite the fact he doesn’t think about his Parkinson’s disease all that much.

He says that after telling his wife Sharon that he had “recently” smoked a marijuana, she became enraged and threatened to “kill” him.

“I asked, ‘What is the length of time you want me to f**king live?'” Osbourne continues.

Osbourne, who is jokingly standing in the mirror and wondering how he’s still here, is already in astonishment that he has reached his 41st wedding anniversary.

“I should have died a thousand times over, so I’m not bragging about any of it. God knows how many times my stomach has pumped.”

In light of the fact that time “picks up speed” with age, Osbourne estimates he only has “ten years left” at best.

In those ten years, he hopes to be “well enough to do one show” where he can greet the audience and express gratitude for saving his life.

Osbourne makes a decision: “That’s what I’m working towards, and if I drop down dead at the end of it, I’ll die a happy man.”
