Ozzy Osbourne revealed on Tuesday morning that he has Parkinson’s in an emotional interview with his wife Sharon.

The 71-year-old sat down with Good Morning America to reveal he could no longer hide his health struggles and that he is on a ‘whole host’ of medication to treat his nerve pain.

In an interview with Robin Roberts on “Good Morning America,”Osbourne and his wife and manager, Sharon, said the rocker was diagnosed with the neurodegenerative disorder last February.

“It’s been terribly challenging for us all. I did my last show New Year’s Eve at The Forum,” Osbourne, 71, said referring to his Dec. 31, 2018 show in Los Angeles. “Then I had a bad fall. I had to have surgery on my neck, which screwed all my nerves.”

“It’s PRKN 2,” said his wife, Sharon. “There’s so many different types of Parkinson’s; it’s not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination, but it does affect certain nerves in your body. And it’s — it’s like you have a good day, a good day, and then a really bad day.”
