Kelly O In Rehab
Kelley’s mother, Sharon Osbourne, was alerted to Kelly’s problems when she received a phone call from a British tabloid journalist on Friday morning (2nd April) asking for comment on a photo of Kelly “doing a drug deal”. MTV reports that Sharon then confronted her daughter, who at first denied doing drugs, before coming clean. Mrs O then called the Promises treatment centre in Malibu, California, USA and booked Kelly in.
Speaking to CNN’s Larry King Live, Sharon said: “I’m angry. I’m let down. I feel like I failed again. I can’t take it.”
While Kelly’s father, Ozzy, added: “Being a drug addict and alcoholic myself, I know telling the truth doesn’t come easy. It’s a family illness. It’s in the genes. In this day and age, the availability of getting drugs is amazing.”
A new series of the fly-on-the-wall docusoap, The Osbournes begins tomorrow night on MTV in the US.
