Kelly Osbourne, the 19-year-old daughter of heavy metal star Ozzy Osbourne, has checked into a drug rehabilitation center for an addiction to painkillers, her parents said in a televised interview.
Ozzy, 55, and Sharon Osbourne, 51, talked about their daughter's drug problem Friday night on CNN's "Larry King Live." Ozzy said that his daughter denied having a stash of drugs, but the family's maid said she had found a bag of pills underneath her bed.
"So the bag was delivered to me, and I opened this bag and it was full of pills. ... There must have been 500 pills," Ozzy told King.
Sharon Osbourne said that an English tabloid notified them Friday that they had a photograph of Kelly in an apparent drug deal. Kelly Osbourne was confronted and eventually acknowledged a drug problem "after a lot of twisting," Sharon Osbourne said.
The situation was all too familiar for Kelly's brother, Jack, 18, who drove her to a rehabilitation center in Malibu. Jack Osbourne checked himself into a drug and alcohol rehabilitation clinic last year, and Ozzy Osbourne has been candid about his decades of battles with substance abuse.
The siblings became international stars following the success of the MTV reality show "The Osbournes," which shows an oft-dazed Ozzy doting over his dysfunctional family with wife-manager, Sharon. The show returns April 6 for its third season.
