TV star, who went public about his health crisis last summer, said he is currently feeling well and getting plenty of rest
Jack Osbourne is to undergo cutting-edge stem cell replacement therapy to help him beat Multiple Sclerosis.
Jack, 27 – son of rocker Ozzy and TV star Sharon – will go to Germany for the treatment as it is banned in America, where he is based.
He will fly out after covering the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles today for US music channel Fuse TV.
Jack said: “There are odd restrictions here in America because everybody still thinks it’s, like, what it isn’t. So I’m going to Germany. They clone stem cells from your own blood then inject them back into you.
“Hopefully it will repair any damaged cells and nerves and things like that.”
Jack, who went public about his health crisis last summer, said he is currently feeling well and getting plenty of rest – despite being a new dad to nine-month-old daughter Pearl.
He said: “I’m good. That’s the thing about MS – one minute you’re good, one minute you’re not. I’m hanging on in there, healthy and doing what I got to do.” Jack said he and wife Lisa are getting plenty of help with babysitting from his parents, who are relishing their role as grandparents.
He said: “Now she’s nine months and not so delicate they can play more and have more fun with her. Ozzy is pretty hands-on. But when she starts crying he hands her off.”
Jack – who was at the MusiCares Person Of The Year in LA on Friday with Katy Perry – told Access Hollywood the Black Sabbath frontman has a soulmate in Pearl. “She pretty much understands him,” he said. “They’ve had some heart-to-hearts.”
