Ozzy Osbourne’s False Positive HIV Test

Ozzy Osbourne received a false positive test for HIV a number of years back, and claims he was devastated by the news when the original result came back positive.

“I went to the doctor and had an AIDS test and he told me it was positive,” he said, in an interview in this month’s Glamour magazine. “That was one of the worst days of my life.”

The doctor did a confirmatory test, which came back negative.  The doctor attributed the results first test, the false positive, to the heavy drinking and drug-taking lifestyle he used to enjoy tampering with his immune system.

“It turned out that because I was drinking and using drugs so much, my immune system had dropped so that it was a borderline result. When I went back to be tested again it was negative.”

It is also believed that Ozzy’s daughter Kelly referred to him when she broke down at an AIDS charity benefit in London two years ago.

“This charity is really important to me because one of my family is HIV positive,” she said at the time. “And I’m so proud of him.”

Ozzy is currently promoting his autobiography, I Am Ozzy, and many revelations have come out about his life, including the news that he still enjoys conjugal trysts with wife Sharon but struggles to bring the liaisons to a satisfactory conclusion.
