Kelly Osbourne has nervous breakdown

By Tribute on June 28, 2012 | 18 Comments

Kelly Osbourne seems to be having a hard time dealing with her brother Jack Osbourne’s recent multiple sclerosis diagnosis. According to, the TV personality suffered a nervous breakdown on a flight from Los Angeles to Atlanta. “I saw a flight attendant bring alcoholic beverages over to Kelly’s section in first class at least four or five times,” said a source. “And when we landed just after midnight, her assistant – who flew with her – had to help her off the plane.” The 27-year-old appeared pulled together at the beginning of the flight, but towards the end she looked completely distressed. During the four-hour flight, Osbourne tweeted, “Had a nerves (sic) breakdown yesterday that was cool #Not.” Osbourne has checked into rehab four times before for drug and alcohol addictions and the pressure of her brother’s health might have triggered something. “[Kelly is] tough as nails, and she always lands on her feet,” said Osbourne’s friend. “She’s had so much to deal with at a young age, and she’s tried to handle it the best she can. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if the sudden sad news about Jack helped push her into a dark place again. But she’ll come through it ok.” ~Graeme Mollison

    The only Osbourne I can stand is Sharon. The rest of them I can live without.

    Wow, what a nice and warm human being you are, Missy. What if that happened to your daughter?

    Ever since Dancing With the Stars, and now Fashion Police, I really like Kelly Osbourne and think she’s really helped herself to build a good life and turn herself around. It is heartbreaking for anyone to have MS, so I feel badly for her brother and wish her the best! Keep strong Kelly, you can do it.

    Was it a “nerves” breakdown or just your average alcoholic getting drunk on a plane? Hmmm

    Missy…considering the illness Jack has say you ‘can live without them’ is crass….as for Sam ,who cares?? with all that’s going on,I would in a stupor all day if it were my brother…

  6. Trevor • June 28, 2012 @ 3:27 PM

    Jack has no illness…it is just a sham so he can write a book or have a TV show about it. And Kelly just likes to party.

  7. Linda • June 28, 2012 @ 4:24 PM

    In complete agreement with you Missy, except I can’t stand Sharon either.

    Well alcohol will just make it all better….

    Until we have walked in someone’s shoes – we have
    no right to criticize – this is absolutely devastating news for any family to have to be dealing with – I feel
    so sorry for Kelly – this is her only sibling – they
    are very close. I sincerely hope she is able to get
    some rehab in order to deal with this situation. Have
    some compassion for the Osborne Family. They certainly need it right now.

    @ Catherine, I couldn’t have said it better myself. Some people are really cold asshats on here.

  11. Jennifer • June 28, 2012 @ 7:46 PM

    I feel for this family. My aunt had ms I know what they are going thru. Jack is lucky that his wife and family are there for him. When my aunt got ms her husband took the kids and left her. I know Kelly will pull thru this she is very strong. U may think she is weak cuz she went back to drinking but don’t judge a person till u walk in their shoes. I’m sure jack is doing his research on things he can do. I just wish my aunt was still here holding strong with ms but she isn’t cuz there was nothing that they could do for her there were no meds, no help for ms and now 18 yrs later they have stuff. Jack has ms, his family is still there supporting him, his wife is still with him with their daughter, he still has his sister. The best thing jack has is still his family loving him for who he is not what he has.
    Get over it ppl. This family needs to know that they r loved not hated. Get over urself.

    Hey… sometimes life really sucks, but I guess if she was strong, healthy, stable, mature and NORMAL it would be boring and her stock wouldn’t be as valuable…. Pu-lease…

  13. Christine N • June 28, 2012 @ 10:48 PM

    Jack is not Kelly’s only sibling, there is another daughter, who is not in the limelight. Her name is Aimee.

  14. elaine • June 28, 2012 @ 11:19 PM

    I just want to say that I am sorry for Kelly. She is strong, as is her brother Jack. By the way, there is a third sibling…. a sister named Aimee…. either way, it is sad news for Jack. Hope he is going to be ok. ONE DAY AT A TIME

  15. My Opinion • June 29, 2012 @ 1:12 AM

    I’m sorry for what’s happening to her brother, but if Kelly’s been in rehab —4 times—, and has been strong enough to clean herself each time, then she should know NOT to turn to alcohol (or drugs) when faced with life’s stresses or problems.

  16. LuvMyVamps! • June 29, 2012 @ 9:38 PM

    I adore Sharon Osbourne. The rest of them I can live without.

  17. Lora • June 30, 2012 @ 8:28 PM

    Hi Kelly, wishing all the best… and so much more for your brother as he goes through some rough roads, having the family behind him is a strong force…Jack will be fine!!!

  18. Pyretta • July 3, 2012 @ 8:08 AM
