"He's doing great," she said. "He's out of ICU and doing good. He's breathing on his own."
Osbourne's hospitalization happened a little over a week after he postponed the U.K. and European leg of No More Tours II due to illness. He initially delayed the first four dates because of the flu and was subsequently diagnosed with an upper-respiratory infection.
