Kelly Osbourne has revealed that she has relapsed after nearly four years of sobriety in a candid video shared on Monday.

The 36-year-old daughter of Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne took to Instagram to admit she was ‘not proud’ over her decision but wanted to be ‘honest’ with fans.   

Kelly insisted that she is now ‘back on track’ with her recovery and that she is just taking things one day at a time.

The TV personality went sober in 2017 and previously admitted that she never thought she would be alive at 35 after passing out every night from drugs and partying at the height of her battle.   

Speaking in a video shared with her 1.3million followers, Kelly said: ‘This is a little hard for me to talk about but I’ve always promised you I will be honest with you about where I’m at and what’s going on on my road to recovery.

‘I relapsed, not proud of it but I’m back on track and I will be doing a podcast this week where I tell everybody about what’s going on and what happened.’

Kelly added that she is taking things just ‘one day at a time’ and wanted to tell her followers the truth as she never lies.

She continued: ‘I just want to let you know that I’m sober today and I’m going to be sober tomorrow but I’ve truly learned that it is just one day at a time and I wanted to tell you guys the truth cause I never ever want to lie to you.’

Thanking fans for their support at the end of her video, Kelly signed off with: ‘Thank you so much for your support and love and you’ll be hearing from me soon.’

In 2020, Kelly spoke about her past battle and said that she used to take so many drugs she ’embalmed’ her body every night.

The former wild child said she doubted she would be alive at 35 after passing out every night from drugs and partying.

Kelly admitted that she regularly took a cocktail of amphetamines, tranquillisers and marijuana at the height of her battle.   

The star told her friend DJ Fat Tony on his podcast, The Recovery: ‘I never thought I’d be alive at 35 years old.

‘A lot of my friends didn’t make it and burying them was hard. I had survivor’s guilt for a long time. I’m almost three years sober.’

The reality star also revealed how she would convince her mum Sharon that she was sober by showing her stolen Alcoholics Anonymous sobriety chips.

She said: ‘I never truly slept, I would pass out from whatever I drank or took and came to.

‘I was in a haze of hangovers and withdrawals. I don’t know how I did it for as long as I did. I embalmed my body.’

Kelly has been to rehab seven times and she was even locked in a padded cell to keep her off drugs.

She said she had her awakening in 2017 and decided she needed to change her ways.

Past: In 2020, Kelly spoke about her past battle and said that she used to take so many drugs she ’embalmed’ her body every night (pictured with parents Sharon and Ozzy in 2020)  

Kelly revealed: ‘I was so wasted the whole time. I hadn’t been to a grocery store in three years or done normal things. I thought, “I don’t want to live like this any more”.

‘I’d put blackout curtains in my house so I didn’t know what time it was. I realised I wasn’t going to make it. I’d be dead if I keep doing this.

‘I picked up the phone and I was really drunk when I called my brother Jack.’ 

Kelly said that he arrived in minutes, even though his efforts to help before had resulted in Kelly being abusive to him.

She said: ‘I got into his car. I was wearing a T-shirt and underwear. I remember saying to him, crying, “I don’t want to be a fat drunk loser any more. I want to be a skinny winner”.’

Kelly then checked into a new facility with a renewed energy and the help from her family.

She said: ‘I went to therapy for the first six months, for about six hours a day. I was like, “If I’m going to do this, I’m going to really do it”.’ 

During the height of her battle, Kelly admitted that the longest she went off substances was a month.

She said: ‘I’ve only ever had about 30 days of clean time, which is when I was in treatment, then I would come out and get high again.

‘But I lied about it. I used to steal 60-day AA chips and give them to my mum so she would take me out for dinner.’

In 2019, Kelly appeared on Lorraine where she prepared to celebrate two years of sobriety.

The TV personality said: ‘I am [in a great place]. I am almost two years sober and it’s completely changed my 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.

‘Now seeing that I don’t need that and my life is better… I don’t have any drama in my life.

‘I have accepted the fact that, and I know I have said this throughout my whole life but I really understand it now, that I am not perfect and I am never going to be and I don’t want to be.’   

Kelly has recently lost over 90-pounds with help from a gastric sleeve procedure and eating clean, saying she had to get her ‘head right’ before even embarking on the surgery. 

She had previously revealed she had issues with food on account of being an ’emotional eater,’ and had to reprogram that relationship with help from therapy.

Her newest business venture comes in the form of a podcast with entrepreneur Jeff Beacher — who hosted the live theatre series Beacher’s Madhouse — and it will debut on May 4 under the name: The Kelly Osbourne and Jeff Beacher Show.  

Speaking to Page Six about the venture Kelly revealed that the podcast will also touch on both hosts’ weight loss (Beacher lost over 240 pounds) as well as her journey to sobriety.   

‘We are not perfect. And there’s only one way to make things right, and that is to learn, to educate and to learn from your mistakes from the past, share what you have learned with others. And that’s something that’s so important,’ she said.
