26-year-old Jack Osbourne, son of legendary rocker Ozzy Osbourne, revealed yesterday that he had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. The NY Daily News says:
He learned of his illness two weeks after his daughter Pearl Clementine was born.
Doctors broke the news to Osbourne after he lost 60% of his vision in his right eye.
Osbourne said he’s speaking up about MS to raise awareness.
It’s unclear what causes multiple sclerosis, an autoimmune disease that attacks the central nervous system. MS can cause numbness, muscle spasms and a loss of coordination. There is no known cure.
So Jack gets sober (he went to rehab in 2003 for OxyContin addiction), loses a ton of weight and becomes a fitness buff, and ditches the partying for a respectable life with a wife and kid… and NOW he gets MS. I’m not a doctor, but I do spend a lot of time at the free clinic, so I can say with absolute certainty that it was the pills, booze and Ho-Ho’s keeping his immune system in check all this time. And that, my friends, is a lifestyle plan I can truly embrace. Jenny Craig and Betty Ford can both suck it.
