Singer Kelly Osbourne, daughter of rock star Ozzy Osbourne, has been admitted to a drug rehabilitation clinic after abusing painkillers.
The 19-year-old entered a California clinic on Friday following tabloid newspaper claims about her drug use.

"She admitted it after a lot of twisting," her mother Sharon told CNN.

"The amount of pills I found in her bag was astounding," Mr Osbourne added. Kelly's brother Jack, 18, underwent substance abuse treatment last year.

Dropped

After appearing with her family in fly-on-the-wall series The Osbournes, Kelly had three UK chart hit singles including Papa Don't Preach.

Her debut album Shut Up spent just one week in the UK top 40, however, and she was dropped by record label Sony Music.

Last August she cancelled her European tour because of "health reasons".

Her parents had been due to promote the third series of The Osbournes on CNN talk show Larry King Live, but instead discussed their daughter's drug abuse.

Ozzy Osbourne, an admitted drug addict and alcoholic who has spent time in rehabilitation clinics himself, said he had asked Kelly repeatedly if she used drugs, but she denied it.

"I can't believe we were buying into it," he said.

Sharon Osbourne said Kelly entered Promises rehabilitation centre in Malibu "a couple of hours" before they appeared on TV.

"As usual with the Osbournes, you never know what's going to happen next," she said.

I rather like her. She does her own thing and doesn't care what people think.

I don't like her because she seems spoiled, and she's using her father's fame to make a name for herself.

Not IMO. She's trying to make a name for herself. Yes she did get her first record made through a Label her father used but it's also because Sharon had connections there. Her next album due out later this year is with an independent label I think.

It's not only that, I just don't like the way she acts. She looks fake.

Kelly Osbourne isnt exactly a unique case, a very significant portion of the population from pre school to middle age are depressed and frequently abuse the drugs used to treat it...

The problem is deep in our society...

Is abusing painkillers synonymous with depression? I think not. I think she liked the high.
