Ozzy Osbourne was spotted being helped into a wheelchair, as the rockstar recently revealed that he’s set to undergo a surgical procedure.

In photographs taken in Los Angeles, the 74-year-old could be seen getting out of a car, as a man wearing a facemask stood with his hands on the handles of a wheelchair.

As Ozzy went to take a seat in the chair, the man in question pushed him, as a woman also stood by.

The Black Sabbath singer was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2003, but didn’t go public with his diagnosis for another 17 years.

In 2019, he underwent surgery after suffering a fall at his home in LA, explaining at the time that he initially thought as he fell that he had become paralysed.

Then earlier this year, the rocker announced that he was unable to go on tour following multiple procedures to treat his spinal injury.

Ozzy revealed in a new episode of his family’s podcast The Osbournes Podcast that he has another surgery in the pipeline, which will bring his total number of procedures following his 2019 fall up to four.

‘He said: ‘My lower back is, I’m going for an epidural soon because what’s happening, what they’ve discovered is the neck has been fixed, below the neck there’s two vertebrae where the bike hit me and disintegrated, there’s nothing left of ’em,’ he said, Blabbermouth reported.

After his son Jack Osbourne asked: ‘Are they fusing discs?’ Ozzy responded explained that he ‘didn’t know’ what the medical professionals were going to be doing.

‘All I know is right now, I’m in a lot of pain, I’m in a lot of discomfort,’ he added.

Ozzy and his wife Sharon Osbourne confirmed that this would be his fourth surgery.

He continued: ‘In my back, the two discs, and the muscles on my shoulders have separated from my skeleton, and that’s why I lean forward as it’s like gravity is bringing my head forward.’
