Ozzy Osbourne‘s health is at an all-time low! The sex addict‘s wife, Sharon Osbourne, took to Twitter on Wednesday, February 6, to deliver some bad news to fans — Ozzy is in the hospital.

“As some of you may have heard, Ozzy was admitted to hospital following some complications from the flu. His doctors feel this is the best way to get him on a quicker road to recovery. Thanks to everyone for their concern and love,” she wrote on the social media platform.

This news comes after Ozzy revealed on January 31 that he’d be postponing the European leg of his No More Tours 2 due to his illness.

“Ozzy Osbourne has been forced to postpone the entire UK and European leg of his No More Tours 2 tour on doctors’ orders,” his publicist said in a statement at the time. “This follows yesterday’s announcement that Osbourne was postponing the first four dates of the tour because of the flu. After seeing his physician again, Osbourne has been diagnosed with a severe upper-respiratory infection which the doctor feels could develop into pneumonia given the physicality of the live performances and an extensive travel schedule throughout Europe in harsh winter conditions.”

The rocker followed up with a statement of his own, one year after he was hospitalized for a nearly-fatal staph infection in his thumb. “I’m completely devastated for having to postpone the European leg of my tour. It just seems that since October everything I touch has turned to s—t. First the staph infection in my thumb and now coming down with the flu and bronchitis,” he wrote. “I want to apologize to all of my fans who have been so loyal over the years, my band, my crew and to Judas Priest for letting you all down. However, I promise the tour with Judas Priest will be completed. It’s being rescheduled right now to start in September. Again, I apologize to everyone. God Bless. Love you all, Ozzy.”

Following his staph infection, Ozzy found himself in a major rut — and Sharon was pushing him to get off his butt and get a job! “Ozzy just wants to putter around at home in his slippers, and Sharon’s sick and tired of it,” said an insider to The National ENQUIRER — adding: “He spends hours shopping on the computer, spending thousands of dollars on stuff they don’t need, or binge-watching his favorite sitcoms.”
