Kelly Osbourne blames weight taunts for addiction

Kelly osbourne says constant comments about her weight led her to become addicted to drugs. The daughter of Sharon and ozzy osbourne has recently lost more than 20kg, but believes public attention to her weight was a major reason she ended up in rehab. “I understand that being judged by others comes with the territory, but it broke my heart and ruined my self-esteem,” says the 26-year-old star of ‘Fashion Police’. “It sets you up to hate yourself in a huge way. I was so angry about the things people said about me. I truly believe it’s the main reason I turned to Vicodin [painkillers] and ended up in rehab three times. I just hated myself.” Now recovered from her drug addiction, Kelly feels happier about her figure after stopping her emotional eating patterns and using diet and exercise to get her weight under control. “I used to eat chips and cookies and drink soda all day long. I had to start making better choices. Now, when I’m full, I stop eating! It may have taken me 26 years to figure it out, but I’ve finally learned how to do it right.”
