While we never condone numbing the pain of anything with alcohol - especially given her history with substance abuse - we can imagine how difficult and overwhelming everything is right now in her personal life.
But luckily, Kelly Osbourne is not making any excuses for her recent behavior on a flight to Atlanta, as many passengers reported her getting so drunk that she had to be carried off the plane upon landing, and is speaking very candidly about what exactly caused her to lose her cool!
“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. 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.”
“I hate the fact that I’m sitting here right now, and that’s even an excuse because it’s not an excuse. 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. I can’t stand knowing that [Jack] 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.”
Wow! We really have to give her a lot of credit!
It's not every day a young celebrity takes COMPLETE accountability for her behavior, and Kelly is really putting herself out there right now during a very emotionally vulnerable time in her life!
Don't beat yourself up, gurl!
Like you said, you probably overdid it a little bit, but you weren't acting like a fool, and you've got a lot going on in your personal life right now that probably still needs some time to be processed!
Just please stay safe, stay positive, and stay strong.
You are all in our thoughts right now! Keep fighting!
