Mum Sharon Osbourne's cancer forced Kelly to fight her demons
The X Factor judge, 60, even locked her daughter in a padded cell in a bid to curb her substance abuse problems.
I’ve been to rehab seven times and to two mental institutions,’ says Kelly, 28.
My mum even had me put in a padded cell once to scare me, but like a brat I just sat it out until she said, “Well, that’s not going to work”.
But what I’ve learnt is that no amount of therapy or medication is going to work unless you want it to. Until you want to be a good person, you will never be one.’
Kelly, who recently got engaged to chef Matthew Mosshart, decided to get clean when she was 18 after Sharon was diagnosed with colon cancer.
I was faced with the choice of a career or spending what could have been the last days of my mother’s life with her. I said, “F**k you, career, hello, Mother”,’ Kelly tells Cosmopolitan Magazine.
I became my mum’s nurse 24/7. I thought I was going to lose her – it was awful.’
