Sharon Osbourne is heaping praise on Sir Elton for hosting his annual AIDS charity gala at his home in England last month, even though he was in tremendous pain.
The piano player was convinced he was suffering from a bad bout of food poisoning when he was struck down with crippling stomach cramps, but ended up being diagnosed with a case of appendicitis.
Sharon reveals her friend had been silently suffering with the condition for weeks, but he refused to cancel his White Tie and Tiara Ball.
While co-hosting her U.S. chat show The Talk on July 10, Sharon remarked, "All I have to say is that he was sick a couple of weeks ago at his White Tie and Tiara Ball. This is where he gains millions for his AIDS charity, and he went through the evening, he went to every table, he welcomed everybody and in between he was going outside, throwing up, coming back in... He just will not give up... He thinks of everybody else but himself!"
The TV personality also gave viewers an update on the rocker's health, and feels he is already starting to show signs of improvement: "He's doing really well. He's at his home in Windsor and he's recuperating."
