Kelly Osbourne explains how and why she relapsed after nearly 4 years

Kelly Osbourne admitted in a new interview about her recent relapse that she has a tendency to mess things up for herself when she’s doing well.

“I don’t know why my nervous breakdown happened at the end of the lockdown. I made it all the way through, everything was great and my life was perfect,” she told “Extra” on Tuesday. “I’m that girl that when everything is going great I need to f–k it up a little and make everything a little bit worse in my life.”

The TV host, 36, explained that she broke nearly four years of sobriety because she thought she could start drinking casually again.

“I am an addict and had thought that I had enough time under my belt and I could drink like a normal person, and it turns out I cannot and I will never be normal,” she said. “I don’t know why I even tried it. It’s not for me, and it took me a matter of days and I was like done, not doing this.”

Eventually, the daughter of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne realized that going back to alcohol was a mistake even though she thought she had her ducks in a row.

“I got all of my career goals happening… and then I got happy ’cause I got this incredible boyfriend [Erik Bragg] and everything in my life is so great and I’m like, I’m not an addict anymore… On top of that pandemic fever, it all just got too much,” she said.

Kelly said she wanted to share her relapse with the public to let other people who are also battling addiction know that they are not alone.

“This is something I am going to battle for the rest of my life. It’s never going to be easy,” she said. “Through being accountable and owning your own journey and sharing what you can go though, you can help other people. That’s why I came clean. I could have sat here and nobody would know.”

The “Fashion Police” alum shared last week that she had fallen off the wagon, acknowledging that while she wasn’t “proud” of herself, she was already focused on getting sober again.

“This is a little hard for me to talk about, but I’ve always promised you that I will always be honest with you about where I’m at and what’s going on in my road to recovery,” she said on her Instagram Story. “I relapsed. Not proud of it. But I am back on track.”

During her interview on Tuesday, Kelly also touched on her recent 90-pound weight loss, saying that she was able to get there by proactively working on herself.

“Everyone was so, like, caught up in how, how I look. They never asked me how I felt,” she said. “And the truth is I was so f–king happy and I felt amazing.”

She added, “I did it for me. I did it because I wanted to live. What I saw in the mirror… I wanted the body to match the mind, because I spent so much time working on my mind and then I spent a year working on my body and now it’s about the soul.”

Kelly has long been open about her struggles with addiction and revealed that she decided to get sober in 2017.

Meanwhile, her brother, Jack Osbourne, announced that he was 18 years sober last week.
