Kelly Osbourne, 24, who gained fame in the reality TV series The Osbournes, has been arrested for assault. A Scotland Yard spokesperson would not identify Osbourne, but issued the following statement: “I can confirm that a 24-year-old woman attended a central London police station by appointment at 3pm on January 2. She was arrested for common assault relating to an alleged incident in Soho in the early hours of 29th August 2008.” Apparently Osbourne was provoked by an article in the British paper The Mirror by Zoe Griffin who wrote that Osbourne’s model boyfriend Luke Worrall had asked what an earthquake was. Osbourne later approached Griffin at a nightclub and told her, “My boyfriend knows what an earthquake is and everyone has been laughing at him and he’s upset.” She added, “And then you take the piss out of my dad by saying he’s thick and he’s not. He’s like seriously clever.” Griffin says she offered to do an interview with Worrall to make amends, but Osbourne instead allegedly slapped Griffin’s cheek. Osbourne’s temper is likely inherited — her mother, Sharon, allegedly attacked Playboy model Megan Hauserman during a taping of VH1’s Rock Of Love: Charm School last year, after Hauserman accused her of being famous for managing a “brain dead rocker,” referring to her husband, Ozzy.
