Ozzy Osbourne told he’s HIV positive

ozzy osbourne was once diagnosed as HIV positive only to find out later that the test results were wrong. The wild ageing rocker was devastated when he was told that he had contracted the virus before further medical tests revealed that his results were due to years of drug and alcohol abuse.

ozzy admits, “I went to the doctor and had an Aids test and he told me it was positive. That was one of the worst days of my life. When I used to get f*cking loaded, I would get myself into all kinds of situations. It turns out that because I was drinking and using drugs so much, my immune system had dropped so that it was a borderline result. When I went back to be tested again, it was negative.”

It’s a good thing he is still with us – ozzy has finally passed his driving test on his 19th attempt at the age of 60. The Black Sabbath rocker blamed his heavy drinking for failing in the past, saying “I would be walking round the test centre with a bottle of vodka in my pocket.”
