Sharon said the "Crazy Train" rocker thinks the Type 2 diabetes drug is "too good to be true"
During an appearance on Good Morning Britain on Friday, Sharon, 71, admitted that the "Crazy Train" rocker, 74, isn't thrilled about her slimmer physique and how she's achieved it. "He doesn't like it," she said, explaining that he feels she's lost too much weight.
"And he's scared that something us going to happen to me," Sharon continued, referring to her use of the Type 2 diabetes drug. "He says, 'You've got skinny then something else is going to happen.' He's always thinking about the downside — that it's too good to be true."
Sharon agreed that she could stand to put on "a few pounds," but said her body is at a point where it's "not listening, it's staying where it is."
The former The Talk host said she first decided to take Ozempic because she was "fed up" with struggling with her weight. "I just thought, 'I've tried everything so I might as well try this,' /" she explained.
Despite her husband's worries about potential long-term side effects, she has found that the medication works well for her. "I mean, look, it does what it says on the packet. It absolutely does," she noted.
She did, however, voice her own concerns about Ozempic and similar drugs being used by younger people. "I don't think it's for teenagers at all. I'm scared for like 16- to 20-year-olds because it's easy to say, 'This is it. I can eat what I want. I keep taking this injection and I'm like this,' " she explained.
"I just think it needs to be in the hands of older people, who totally understand there could be side effects to this," she added.

During her GMB appearance, Sharon also touched on Ozzy's significant health challenges, saying the Black Sabbath vocalist has been through "five years of nightmares and operations" on his neck and spine to repair structural damage he sustained after a 2019 fall.
"I do not know how he has withstood it," she said.
Ozzy himself opened up about his health in a recent interview with Rolling Stone UK. “It’s really knocked me about,” he said of having to undergo four surgeries. “The second surgery went drastically wrong and virtually left me crippled. I thought I’d be up and running after the second and third, but with the last one they put a fucking rod in my spine. They found a tumor in one of the vertebrae, so they had to dig all that out too. It’s pretty rough, man."
Sharon told the outlet that it's been difficult for her to see her husband endure so much. "I’ve just felt so helpless and so bad for Ozzy, to see him going through the pain," she said.
