Ozzy Osbourne isn't about to close his eyes forever, his daughter denying reports he's on his deathbed.

The Black Sabbath singer, 71, is "bedridden in agonizing pain and losing his marbles" according to Radar Online.

"Ozzy is in chronic pain and begging to be put out of his misery," a source told the gossip site

"Ozzy just lies in bed all day, moaning in pain 24/7. He doesn't know his family half the time and once mistook [wife] Sharon for a total stranger, asking her, 'Who are you?'"

In a post to her Instagram account, Kelly Osbourne said her father wasn't heading to the other side just yet.

"Today I had a wonderful start to 2020. I went out to lunch with my family. Then I spent the rest of the day laughing and hanging out with my dad. 

"I come home to read sickening articles about my dad supposedly being on his 'death bed' - sometimes the media makes me sick! It's no secret that my dad has had a rough year when it comes to his health but come the f**k on, this is utter bullshit."

The 'Iron Man' singer for years abused drugs and alcohol, and has surprised many with his longevity. 

"If you read a news story that said, 'Ozzy Osbourne has been found dead in his hotel room,' you wouldn't go, 'Oh really?' would you? You'd say, 'Well, obviously,'" he told Metal Hammer magazine earlier this year.

In 2017, he said he'd been sober for five years.
