Kelly Osbourne Admits Drinking Again: ‘I Lost It’ After Brother Jack’s MS Diagnosis
“I got drunk on the plane to Atlanta,” the Fashion Police judge admitted to RadarOnline. “The only reason I’m being so honest…is because I don’t think it’s fair for me to lie. I’m not going to say I didn’t do something when I did it.”
What caused Osbourne to fall off the wagon?
The TV star — who has most recently been to rehab in 2009 for a painkiller addiction — broke down over her brother Jack’s recent Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis. “Before I got on the plane, a gentleman came up to me and asked me how my brother was doing and told me about his brother having MS and directed me towards a website,” Osbourne explained. “The website…described how bad certain cases of MS got, and it made me lose it because I’ve sat through my mother having breast cancer, my dad almost dying from a bike accident, and now it’s my brother who’s my best friend.”
It was all too much for Osbourne, 27, to bear. “I had a moment of just is this really happening to me all over again?” she said. “And unfortunately it was in front of everyone.”
But Osbourne confessed the incident wasn’t the first time she has indulged in alcohol post-rehab. “I have the occasional drink,” she said. “I will never lie about that. That’s my choice that I make and I’m an adult and I have to be responsible for my actions.”
