The TV personality Kelly Osbourne has shared her struggles with addiction during her appearance on Facebook Watch’s Red Table Talk. She has talked about the beginning of her addiction as she was still a young teenager.
Around the Red Table, Kelly Osbourne, who is now 36, has told her hosts Jada Pinkett Smith, Adrienne Banfield-Norris and Willow Smith that her consumption of drugs and alcohol started when she has prescribed an opioid medication after undergoing surgery at the age of 13.
After her surgery for a bad case of tonsillitis, the doctors give her Vicodin. Kelly Osbourne revealed, “that was all I needed.” She added “I went from having every voice in my head being like ‘You’re fat, you’re ugly, you’re not good enough, no one likes you, you don’t deserve this, people only like you because of who your parents are.’
And then all of a sudden every single voice was silenced and it felt life gave me a hug.” After that, she quickly shifted onto harder substances. Beginning with Percocet and then going on heroin “because it was cheaper.”
Back in April, the daughter of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne confessed that she had suffered a relapse after her four years of sobriety. But she reassured everyone right away saying she was “back on track.”
She also admitted that she wanted to try to remain sober but for that she has to take it “one day at a time.”
