Kelly Osbourne reveals secret relapse during the 'hardest year' of her life

Former Fashion Police host Kelly Osbourne just admitted to relapsing a year ago.

Sharing a screenshot of the Twelve Steps app, which helps former addicts track their progress, Osbourne announced that she marked one year of sobriety on Thursday, Aug. 9, 2018. "This past year has been one of the hardest years of my life and I feel it's time [to] share that with you guys," she wrote in the post's caption. "To cut a long story short things got really dark."

Opening up about her experience, the 33-year-old shared that, at the time of her relapse, she'd felt hopeless and that "life on life's terms" had become too much for her. "I gave up on everything in my life but most of all I gave up on myself," she explained, adding that the only way she knew how to cope was to self-medicate and keep busy.

Of course, her method of dealing with her problems wouldn't hold up forever — which she very well knew, and, since then, Osbourne has been focusing on recovery. "I have [spent] the past year truly working on my mind body and soul!" she shared. "I had to take a step out of the public eye away from work and give myself a chance to heal and figure out who the f*** I really am without a camera in my face."

Osbourne said that she's "finally at peace" with herself, and she thanked her family for helping her through the tough time — especially her brother, Jack, who'd "held [her] hand" as she recovered.

Though Osbourne, who'd started regularly using drugs at age 16, had gotten clean for some time, addiction is a lifelong battle — one that is certainly not made any easier by living life in the spotlight. During an appearance on the British TV show Loose Women, Osbourne discussed the reported overdose of her fellow celebrity, pop star Demi Lovato, who was found unconscious after a night of partying and rushed to the hospital on July 24, 2018.

Admitting that she couldn't imagine what Lovato was going through, despite their shared experiences and fame, Osbourne said that "relapse is one of the hardest things we face as an open addict who has gone through the program and turned their life around."

Hopefully, both Osbourne and Lovato will be able to stay sober and live their best lives. We'll be rooting for them.
