Elsewhere, Sharon Osbourne recently opened up about her husband’s Parkinson’s disease diagnosis, saying: “Suddenly, your life just stops – life as you knew it.”

“I just think of my husband who was very energetic, loved to go out for walks, did a two-hour show on stage every night, running around like a crazy man,” she added.

“When I look at my husband, my heart breaks for him. I’m sad for myself to see him that way, but what he goes through is worse. When I look at him and he doesn’t know, I’m, like, crying.”

Osbourne was diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2003, but it wasn’t until 2020 that he announced the diagnosis publicly.
