The Prince of Darkness is recovering from a manicure gone awry.
Ozzy Osbourne, 69, had to cancel a number of shows on his US tour in October after contracting a serious infection in his thumb that also spread throughout his right hand, causing it to swell to “the size of a f—king lightbulb.”
The former Black Sabbath frontman told the Daily Star, “I’m having the best time of my life – apart from that f—king thing with my thumb, and I didn’t realize that it was very dangerous.”
“I was in hospital for a couple of days and had emergency surgery,” he continued, “and I remember waking up in the morning and Sharon said: ‘What the f—k have you done to your hand?’” Doctors told him that if the infection had gotten into his bloodstream, he could have died.
“The funny thing is they reckon I got it from a manicure! It won’t stop me from heading to the UK in February,” the rocker explained.
His wife, Sharon Osbourne, previously said on an episode of “The Talk” in October that, “He had a little cut on his thumb, and you know when you pull the side of your nail? … He just left it.”
The “Paranoid” singer also shared a photo of himself bandaged up in his hospital bed. “Feeling better after surgery. Ice cream helps,” he captioned the snap.
