From, uh, Radar Online:
Kelly Osbourne is speaking out and admitting exclusively to RadarOnline.com that she was drunk on a plane recently, but explains the heartbreaking details that led up to her breakdown when she “lost it.”
In a candid interview, Kelly opened up about what happened to cause her to turn to alcohol.
“The first thing I want to say is the only reason I’m being so honest and telling you what happened is because I don’t think it’s fair for me to lie. I’m not going to say I didn’t do something when I did it.
“I got drunk on the plane to Atlanta,” Kelly said in a no-holds barred exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, and she revealed why.
“It was on an empty stomach, and before I got on the plane a gentleman came up to me and asked me how my brother was doing and told me about his brother having MS (Multiple Sclerosis) and directed me towards a website.
“On the plane I started looking at the website. It described how bad certain cases of MS got, and it made me lose it because I’ve sat through my mother having breast cancer, my dad almost dying from a bike accident, and now it’s my brother who’s my best friend. I lost it,” Kelly frankly admitted.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, on June 19 while flying from LAX to Atlanta, a fellow passenger on the plane noticed Kelly consuming alcohol, crying and being helped while she walked off the plane.
The daughter of Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne and brother to Jack Osbourne said that she doesn’t want her brother’s medical condition to be her cop-out for getting drunk.
“I hate the fact that I’m sitting here right now, and that’s even an excuse because it’s not an excuse.”
Kelly has spent time in a rehab center, but she spoke candidly about the fact that she drinks alcohol, but said her actions on the plane were not of a crazed drunk person.
“I have not lied about it. I have the occasional drink. I will never lie about that. That’s my choice that I make and I’m an adult and I have to be responsible for my actions. But it’s not like I was f*cking claiming there was a colonial woman on the wing. Like I was so out of it they had to land the plane or something. I got drunk on a plane, big deal.”
“The way I live my life after going to rehab is not the way that most people do. It isn’t. Yes, I still drink and I’ve always said that. I do have the occasional drink. I’m not using, I haven’t. I won’t. I’m not going to do that. I had a moment of just is this really happening to me all over again? And unfortunately it was in front of everyone.”
“I’m not one of those starlets that’s drinking vodka out of a water bottle thinking no one knows. If I’m going to have a f*cking drink, I’m 27 years old. I’m going to have one. Unfortunately I decided to have one on a plane to Atlanta and burst into tears.”
Kelly did say her only concern was her brother Jack and making sure that he understood what happened.
“I can’t stand knowing that he probably is thinking that it was because of him being diagnosed that I made a fool of myself. I made a fool of myself regardless of Jack and I hate that that’s even out there.”
Keeping in mind that Radar Online was the outlet that initially reported the story yesterday (you know the one, the one where I called BS on practically everything except for the fact that Kelly’s got a thing for booze?), this is an actual statement that Kelly Osbourne made to Radar Online today regarding her plane breakdown.
You win, Kelly. It’s not very often that the tabloids get the story spot-on.
