Kelly Osbourne is speaking out over reports that she had to be carried off of a flight to Atlanta, Georgia, after she became majorly drunk during the flight.
Osbourne insists that she was trying to drown her sorrows after learning of her brother Jack’s Multiple Scleroris diagnosis.
Passengers aboard the flight took to Twitter and Facebook to reveal Kelly’s tipsy behavior, and the fashion police host has come clean and confessed that the rumors are pretty much true.
An honest statement from Osbourne to her fans reads: “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.”
However Kelly O doesn’t want it to seem like she was being wild and out of control, admitting that she got drunk quietly in her seat while reading up on the website. , “It’s not like I was f**king claiming there was a colonial woman on the wing… I was so out of it they had to land the plane or something. I got drunk on a plane, big deal.”
As for those who blasted the former addict for even drinking at all, Osbourne adds, “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**king 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 he (Jack) 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.”
