FemaleFirst.co.uk is reporting that OZZY OSBOURNE is alive and kicking, despite Internet rumors to the contrary.

The singer's publicists have been inundated with calls since early Thursday morning (Jan. 20) following reports that the BLACK SABBATH frontman had died.

Top aide Jay Morose says, "I don't normally pay these things any attention, but I got so many calls I felt I had to check.

"I can assure you Ozzy's fine and these rumours are not true."

The reports arose after Ozzy and his wife Sharon missed a scheduled appearance on last Thursday's (Jan. 13) "The Tonight Show" — and Arnold Schwarzenegger had to fill in for them at the last minute.

Morose adds, "I'm still not sure what happened with that. All I know is they were booked and didn't make it to the show."

Ozzy is currently holed up in Britain recording an all-star tsunami aid benefit single with daughter Kelly, Rod Stewart and Sir Elton John among others.
