Kelly Osbourne feared her father Ozzy would never walk again following Parkison’s diagnosis

Kelly Osbourne has opened up about her father Ozzy’s Parkison’s diagnosis.

On Tuesday, the 35-year-old appeared on Good Morning America (GMA) alongside her father, mother Sharon and brother Jack, to discuss the rock star’s health complications.

During the interview, the “Shut Up” singer said she feared the Black Sabbath musician would never walk again after he suffered a serious fall in his bathroom in 2019. Ms Osborne said that the hardest part about his diagnosis was “watching somebody that you love suffer”.

“When I saw it myself, it’s really strange how this works because there are some days where I walk in this house and I’m like, ‘There is absolutely nothing wrong with him’, and you think ‘Oh my god he’s going to be great, we are going to be leaving for tour next month’,” Kelly explained.

“And then you come back the next day and nothing has happened but it’s like he can’t feel his arm and he can’t get off the couch.

“The hardest thing is watching somebody that you love suffer.”

Kelly went on to describe how her father’s Parkinson’s has prompted a role reversal within their family.

“We have to be like, ‘Snap out of it. Come on, we have to all admit what’s happening here’, so that we can get over this,” she said.

“And it took a while for everyone to be on the same page.”

However, she said the diagnosis has now brought the family together, saying: “We’ve all learned so much about each other again – and it’s reaffirmed how much we all love each other and how strong we are.

“This time one year ago, we didn’t know if dad was ever going to walk again.”

In a separate interview with GMA, Ozzy revealed that he is currently taking a “host of medications” and said he feels relieved that he has now been able to share his diagnosis.

“To hide something is hard – you never feel proper. You feel guilty. I’m no good with secrets. I cannot walk around with it anymore. It’s like I’m running out of excuses,” he said.

“I feel better now that I have owned up to the fact that I have a case of Parkinson’s.”

According to the NHS, Parkinson’s disease is a condition in which parts of the brain become progressively damaged over many years.

The main symptoms of Parkinson’s disease are involuntary shaking of particular parts of the body, slow movement, stiff and inflexible muscles. However, a person with Parkinson’s disease can also experience a wide range of other physical and psychological symptoms such as depression and anxiety, balance problems and memory problems.

Earlier this month, Kelly denied speculation that her father was dying, and said that she was “sick” of the media speculation about his health.

“Today I had a wonderful start to 2020,” she wrote in her Instagram story.

“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 deathbed.

“Sometimes the media makes me sick!” she continued.

“It’s no secret that my dad has had a rough year when it comes to his health but come the f*** on, this is utter bulls***.”
