Earlier this week, RadarOnline.com reported that Kelly Osbourne compromised her sobriety by drinking this weekend at The Art of Elysium pre-Golden Globes party, after three-years of sobriety.
In a story where they originally got the supposed date/ location wrong, the website claimed Osbourne was drinking to get drunk, was falling down, being obnoxious, and abrasive, and abusive to those around her.
A source said: “Kelly is definitely off the wagon again, at least when it comes to drinking. I’ve seen her out drinking cocktails, beer and champagne numerous times, and I’ve seen her pretty unsteady on her feet too. Kelly was so wasted. At one point she almost fell back and I had to catch her! When she gets drinking her hatred for Christina Aguilera really comes out. She spent the entire night talking about how much she hates Christina! Maybe she thinks it’s OK for her to be drinking as her past problems were pills, but as far as I know if you want to be ‘sober’ you need to be SOBER, period.”
Which reads as oddly-judgmental fabrication, especially the rant about Christina Aguilera. Moreover, the source seems to be exaggerating or conflating a few drinks with a real lapse in sobriety. It’s hard to tell whether the source has an agenda. In any case, Osbourne is not amused and called out RadarOnline by name on her Twitter.
She wrote, over a series of messages followed by responses to disappointed fans: “thats funny radar because i was not even at any of the after parties i was working!!!! @radar_online please stop writing bulls**t about me i did not even go to any golden globe parties i was working! i will say this till I’m blue in the face I DO ENOUGH STUPID S**T YOU DONT NEED TO MAKE THINGS UP! my room mate & i are having a proper laugh about all this B,S press he goes ‘i wish you were that fun U never do anything but work old lady’… If I want to have a drink them Im going to have a drink Im 27 years old!
