Kelly Osbourne has hit out at "sickening" stories claiming her dad Ozzy is on his deathbed.

The singer, 35, insisted reports that the Black Sabbath star was in such a grave condition were total rubbish, and said the media sometimes made her "sick".

Rumours about Ozzy's condition appear to have been triggered by the fact that he had an accident at home last year, and had to reschedule some tour dates.

The 71-year-old took a tumble while at home recovering from a bout of pneumonia.

The fall aggravated injuries he sustained in a near-fatal quad bike crash back in 2003, butthe rocker is now on the mend.

Taking to her Instagram Story to set the record straight, Kelly wrote: "Today I had a wonderful start to 2020. I went out to lunch with my family.

"Then spent the rest of the day laughing and hanging out with my dad.

"I come home to read sickening articles about my dad supposedly being on his 'death bed'.

"Sometimes the media makes me sick!!!"

She added: "It's no secret that my dad has had a rough year when it comes to his health but come the F*** on this is utter b******t."

Earlier this week Kelly also posted on Instagram saying that 2020 was going to be "the year of me".

The singer, who has struggled with addiction in the past, wrote: "I have come to the realization that I constantly put the needs of others before my own. I allow myself to be put in situations that make me feel uncomfortable for fear of upsetting someone else.

"Not forgetting the amount of times I co-sign the b******t of others.

"With almost 2 1/2 years of sobriety under my belt I still struggle with confrontation (which was NEVER a problem when I was using)

"Well this all STOPS today. 2020 is going to be the year of me!!! It's time to put myself first, stop taking on other peoples s*** and be the badass sober women I was born to be."
