Osbourne, who starred on her family’s MTV show for four seasons between 2002 and 2005, admitted that her opiod addiction started when she was prescribed Vicodin after surgery to remove her tonsils when she was 13.

“That was all I needed,” she told hosts Jada Pinkett Smith, her daughter Willow Smith and her mother Adrienne Banfield-Norris.

Osbourne said the drug silenced her insecurities and “It felt like life was giving me a hug.”

Pinkett Smith replied, “Vicodin will do that.”

Osbourne added that Vicodin led her to abuse Percocet to end up using heroin “because it was cheaper.”

Kelly revealed that her sobriety slip happened during the lockdown as things were just reopening across the country.

“I was alone, sitting by a pool, waiting for someone to make an appointment with me. And I saw this woman and her husband have a glass of champagne. It looked really nice and I thought, “I can do that too,” she said. “And the next day I had two glasses. And the next day it was bottles.’

She told The Sun: “But it went from one drink here, one drink there to literally three bottles of champagne and 24 White Claws a day.”

On her podcast, The Kelly Osbourne and Jeff Beacher Show, Osbourne said she would sip from a large “coffee mug that read, ‘Thank God I’m not dead,’ which is so ironic.”

The Osbournes star spoke to Additional late last month on the slump, which came during the lockdown when business reopened.

“I’m that girl that when things go right, I kind of have to screw it up and make things a little bit worse in my life,” said Kelly, whose parents are Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne. “I’m addicted and thought I had enough time and could drink like a normal human being, and it turns out I can’t and will never be normal.”

Kelly said that in retrospect she doesn’t know why she experimented in the first place.

“It took me a matter of days and I was done, I didn’t do this,” said Osbourne, who has had multiple rehabs in an effort to get over her addiction. “This is something I will fight for for the rest of my life. It will never be easy.’

Osbourne opened up on April 20 in an Instagram clip about the sober slip, as she had been sober since 2017.

‘I fell back. Don’t be proud of it. But I’m back on track,” she said. This is a little hard for me to talk about, but I’ve always promised you that I’ll always be honest with you about where I stand and what’s going on on my road to recovery.”

“It took me a matter of days and I was done, I didn’t do this,” said Osbourne, who has been in rehab several times in an effort to get over her addiction. “This is something I will fight for for the rest of my life. It never gets easy’
