Kelly Osbourne Reveals Former 50 Vicodin Per Day Habit
Kelly Osbourne has revealed details on her previous drug addiction, which will come out in her book called “Fierce” in September. Read more of what Kelly had to say below.
Kelly Osbourne said her drug habit began at about age 16 when she began clubbing, and was offered the Vicodin by an acquaintance.
‘I was relaxed, tingly and happy. The next morning, I called the guy and bought two or three pills for about $20,’ she writes in her new book Fierce.
But Kelly’s addiction grew worse after her mother, Sharon, was diagnosed with cancer in 2002.
‘I was trying to stay strong so I took Vicodin to hide the terrible sadness. But by this point, I was waking up and emptying six Vicodin into my hand.
‘Soon I was taking 50 pills a day. Most people would overdose on ten.’
Her parents had no idea until photos of Kelly purchasing drugs were mailed to her family home. Sharon and Ozzy searched Kelly’s room and discovered 500 pills scattered around.
Kelly, now 24, was sent to rehab, for what would be the first of three stays. Then a year later Kelly was actually sent to a psych ward, where she finally got a control over her addiction.
Kelly also talks about growing up with famous parents…Ozzy Osbourne and Sharon in her book.
Kelly says her sister Aimee and brother Jack and her had Motley Crue as babysitters.
She also tells of her father falling asleep on parents evenings and entertaining her schoolfriends by drunkenly chasing them in his underwear.
He once terrified her friends by dressing as a werewolf and locking them in the garden shed.
As for her outspoken mother Sharon, she says her mother confronted her school boyfriend after he had dumped her.
Her mother yelled: ‘If you don’t stop saying nasty lies about my daughter, I’m going to chop your d*** off and shove it down your throat.’
And one time Sharon mailed a box filled with human fecesto a TV reviewer who described Kelly and Jack as fat.
So will you pick up Kelly’s book “Fierce” when it comes out next month? It should be quite an interesting read!
