Before Kelly Osbourne lashed out at media outlets eagerly awaiting her dad's expiration date, the Ozzman himself was photographed looking ... pretty well if we do say so.
Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne were spotted filling up their Rolls-Royce at an L.A.-area gas station on New Year's Day, reports TMZ. With all the nasty rumors surrounding Ozzy's well-being, the couple didn't seem to mind saying hello to an eager paparazzi before heading back on their way.
While the last 18 months or so have been brutal for Ozzy, rumors of his demise have been exaggerated. One recent article claimed the singer was on his "death bed" and so out of it, he didn't he know Sharon was out of town for the holidays.
Doom and gloom around the Prince of Darkness's prognosis is nothing new, however. Sharon herself hit back at similar stories back in October from her chair on CBS's The Talk.
Since those erroneous reports, Ozzy announced his new album and even returned to the stage at the American Music Awards.
Ozzy has been walking with a cane as he recovers from neck surgery, but the plan to resume his postponed 'No More Tours 2' farewell in the spring remains in place.
