Kelly Osbourne admits she relapsed after four years of sobriety from drugs and alcohol and is 'not proud' of herself
KELLY Osbourne has revealed she relapsed after four years of being sober from drugs and alcohol.
The TV personality, 36, got sober in 2017 after previously admitting she came close to death while taking a cocktail of drugs every night.
Kelly – the daughter of Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne – talked about her relapse on her Instagram story on Monday.
"This is a little hard for me to talk about but I've always promised you I will be honest with you about where I'm at and what's going on on my road to recovery.
"I relapsed, not proud of it but I'm back on track and I will be doing a podcast this week where I tell everybody about what's going on and what happened."
She said she's taking things "one day at a time" and says she wanted to tell fans the "truth" because she "never wants to lie" to them.
The former Fashion Police judge said: "I just want to let you know that I'm sober today and I'm going to be sober tomorrow.
"But I've truly learned that it is just one day at a time and I wanted to tell you guys the truth cause I never ever want to lie to you.'
"Thank you so much for your support and love and you'll be hearing from me soon."
Kelly's admission comes after she revealed last year that she would pass out every night from taking amphetamines, tranquilisers and marijuana.
Kelly told how she spent years fooling her mum Sharon into believing she was sober by passing off stolen Alcoholics Anonymous sobriety chips as her own.
Kelly now admits she was only ever drug-free for a month.
She told pal DJ Fat Tony on his podcast, The Recovery: “I’ve only ever had about 30 days of clean time, which is when I was in treatment, then I would come out and get high again.
“But I lied about it. I used to steal 60-day AA chips and give them to my mum so she would take me out for dinner.
"I never thought I’d be alive at 35 years old. A lot of my friends didn’t make it and burying them was hard. I had survivor’s guilt for a long time. I’m almost three years sober.”
She has had seven trips to rehab and her family did all they could to keep her off drugs, including locking her in a padded cell.
She said: “I never truly slept, I would pass out from whatever I drank or took and came to."
“I was in a haze of hangovers and withdrawals. I don’t know how I did it for as long as I did. I embalmed my body.”
Kelly finally addressed her demons in 2017, explaining: “I was so wasted the whole time.
“I hadn’t been to a grocery store in three years or done normal things. I thought, ‘I don’t want to live like this any more’.
“I’d put blackout curtains in my house so I didn’t know what time it was. I realised I wasn’t going to make it. I’d be dead if I keep doing this.
“I picked up the phone and I was really drunk when I called my brother Jack.”
He was there in minutes despite Kelly being abusive to him when he reached out to help her two months earlier.
Kelly says; “I got into his car. I was wearing a T-shirt and underwear. I remember saying to him, crying, ‘I don’t want to be a fat drunk loser any more. I want to be a skinny winner’.”
With help from her family Kelly checked into a sober facility and threw herself into recovery.
She said: “I went to therapy for the first six months, for about six hours a day. I was like, ‘If I’m going to do this, I’m going to really do it’.”
For years Kelly had played down her partying. In 2014 she said: “I never take drugs.”
