Kelly Osbourne’s weight battle as she ‘replaced drugs with food’ after beating addiction


Kelly Osbourne is a shadow of her former self after losing an impressive six stone over the last year.

The star, 36, has been open about her struggle with her weight and yo-yo dieting in the past; revealing how she piled on the pounds after kicking a drug addiction she says began when she was just 16.

After shooting to fame on MTV reality series The Osbournes, Kelly started clubbing in her late teens and began experimenting with pills.

Then when her mum Sharon was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2002, Kelly said she struggled to cope and fell into the grips of addiction.

“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,” she revealed in her 2009 autobiography Fierce.

Photographs of Kelly buying drugs were sent to the family home which prompted Sharon and Ozzy to raid their daughter’s bedroom.

The pair uncovered a stash of 500 pills and Kelly was swiftly packed off to rehab for the first of three stays.

Following a long and gruelling battle, Kelly finally got sober in 2017 and said in doing so she had ‘completely changed her life.’

“I didn’t think I could do anything if I wasn’t drunk or high, because I was scared of everything. I let it get the better of me,” Kelly revealed on ITV’s Lorraine in 2019.

However, she also admitted that in kicking the habit, she had swapped one addiction for another.

“I replaced the drugs with food and just got fatter and fatter,” she admitted.

Describing herself as an ’emotional eater’, Kelly explained: “When I get upset, my diet goes out the window.”

Having always been known for her curvy figure, Kelly stunned fans this year when she unveiled her incredible six stone weight loss.

Rumours were rife that she’d achieved her slinky new look through a gruelling exercise regime and a vegan lifestyle before Kelly eventually came clean.

“I had surgery. I don’t give a f**** what anyone has to say. I did it, I’m proud of it, they can suck s****. I did the gastric sleeve.

“All it does is change the shape of your stomach. I got that almost 2 years ago. I will never ever ever lie about it ever. It is the best thing I have ever done,” she admitted.

Kelly’s changed appearance was further enhanced by her decision to undergo injections in her face that dramatically slimmed her jaw.

Explaining these were for medical reasons, Kelly told the Hollywood Reported podcast the procedure was to ease her temporomandibular joint dysfunction – a condition which causes pain around the jaw.

“One thing I did that changed my face… I had really bad TMJ. One of the things they did to stop it was they gave me injections in my jaw. It kinda made my jaw look skinnier.

“That’s when people started to notice that I had really lost weight because it changed the shape of everything.

“I found out It’s called buckle fat. It changed everything on my face! How the f*** did I not know about this sooner?”
