Jack Osbourne was reportedly the victim of an unprovoked attack on Wednesday 3 April while he was enjoying a hot drink at a coffee shop in Studio City, Los Angeles.
According to US gossip site TMZ, the 33-year-old was sitting outside, sunning himself on the establishment’s patio, when a man “came out of nowhere and sucker punched [him] on the right side of his head.” The same publication describes how Osbourne tried to retaliate by throwing his drink at the assailant but he was already running away.
Fortunately, he did not suffer any injuries from the random altercation. Osbourne has three children with ex-wife Lisa Stelly.
Osbourne is the son of Black Sabbath‘s former frontman Ozzy and X Factor judge-turned-The View host Sharon. Just this week, the former was forced to postpone more of his No More Tours 2 tour while he “recovers from an injury sustained while dealing with pneumonia.”
Announcing the news on Facebook and Twitter, Ozzy’s team explained that he had fallen at his home and aggravated “years-old injuries that required surgery.” They also made it clear that he won’t be performing until February 2020 at least.
Back in 2003, Ozzy was involved in a quad biking accident where he “stopped breathing for a minute and a half and [had] no pulse.”
At the time, Sharon recalled how Ozzy’s security guard resuscitated the rock star to the Daily Mirror. “The doctors are hoping there hasn’t been any lasting damage, but until Ozzy can actually come round and get off the ventilator and then they will know,” she added.
