Ozzy Osbourne‘s wife Sharon says that the metal legend is “doing great” following his hospitalization due to complications from the flu.
Speaking during her daytime show The Talk on CBS Tuesday, Sharon revealed that Ozzy is “out of ICU.”
“He’s doing good,” she said. “He’s breathing on his own.”
Sharon later took to Twitter to thank fans for their support. “Thank you to everyone for all your get well messages and support for Ozzy,” she wrote. “We are overwhelmed and truly touched by everyone’s thoughtfulness.”
The Black Sabbath frontman’s hospitalization was announced last Wednesday, a week after he had postponed his U.K. and European tour due to the flu and an upper-respiratory infection. The next day, his son Jack said that Ozzy was “doing much better.”
Late last year, Ozzy was forced to postpone a number of U.S. tour dates due to a trio of staph infections in his thumb.
Ozzy is expected to launch a U.S. tour with support from Megadeth in May.
