He told Sharon "just turn the machine off"...
Speaking to The Mirror, Ozzy Osbourne spoke about a "suicide pact" between him and his wife Sharon, which she revealed in her 2007 autobiography. Osbourne confirmed that he and Sharon agreed to take each other to the assisted dying organization Dignitas if either of them began to develop Alzheimer's disease.
However, apparently their deal now has other conditions. Below are some highlights from the interview:
Osbourne how he would not want to live if he became paralyzed or he wasn't living as he is now: "If I can't live my life the way I'm living it now – and I don't mean financially – then that's it... If I can't get up and go to the bathroom myself and I've got tubes up my ass and an enema in my throat, then I've said to Sharon, 'Just turn the machine off.' If I had a stroke and was paralyzed I don't want to be here."
Osbourne on being 480 days sober since his last drug and alcohol relapse: "Sharon was pretty pissed off with me. She'd wait like a praying mantis to catch me out drunk or stoned. And when she did she would throw books at me, all sorts. She once broke all my platinum discs, smashing them over my head. Last year when I was in a hotel, and she found out, she gets a pot of coffee and throws it in my face. It fucking hurt and I had a red face for days."
