Kelly Osbourne has turned her life around: for the better.
“I am [in a great place],” the 34-year-old reality star told British TV showLorraineon Thursday. “I am almost two years sober and it’s completely changed my life.”
With this has come a growth in self-confidence — and a realization that life’s problems can’t miraculously be swept away through self-medicating with drugs and alcohol.
“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,” said Kelly, who’s in London ahead of hosting the 2019 British LGBT Awards on Friday.
“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.”
This is a far cry from Kelly’s past as a hell-raising TV star. Back in August 2018 — shortly after the overdose of friend Demi Lovato – she revealed just how dark her life had become before she sought help and entered rehab.
“I gave up on everything in my life but most of all I gave up on myself,” she wrote on Instagram. “Life on life’s terms became too much for me to handle.”
