Ozzy Says He's Had Parkinson's Since 2003

Ozzy Osbourne says he's been battling with Parkinson's disease since 2003. 

The rock star revealed his battle with Parkinson's last month, and had said he was diagnosed with the disease last year. 

In a new interview with The Los Angeles Times, Osbourne clarified that statement, and said he was first diagnosed with Parkinson's back in 2003. 

Ozzy said, "I'm not dying from Parkinson's. I've been working with it most of my life." He added, "People have written me off time and time again, but I kept coming back and I'm going to come back from this." 

His new album Ordinary Man comes out next week.
