Kelly Osbourne had always expected to die early because of her wild lifestyle full of alcohol and drugs. “I never thought I would turn 35,” said the singer and daughter of Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne in the podcast “The Recovery” by Dj Fat Tony.
Many of her friends have not made it, she says. “It was very difficult to bury them. For a long time, I had guilt that I survived. I’ve been sober for almost three years now.”
For a long time, her condition was very serious; Kelly continues. “I hardly ever slept. I went out of everything I drank or took. I was in a haze of hangovers and recordings. I don’t know how I was able to keep it up for so long.”
Kelly, 35, was admitted to rehab seven times. In 2017 she decided to change course. “I didn’t want to live like that anymore.”
Kelly is not the only one in the Osbourne family struggling with addictions. Father Ozzy (71) has been fighting alcohol and drug problems throughout his career. In January of this year, the rocker announced that he has Parkinson’s disease.
