If you're wondering why you haven't seen much of Kelly Osbourne recently, the reason is simple: She's been working on her.
Being the daughter of Ozzy Osbourne, the 33-year-old has grown up with cameras in her face and a manufactured sense of identity. That pressure and confusion ultimately led to what she describes as "one of the hardest years" of her life. But the reality star/singer chose the road to recovery, and on Thursday (August 9) celebrated her first year of sobriety.
She shared her feat to the world with a heartfelt Instagram post.
"This past year has been one of the hardest years of my life and I feel it’s time share that with you guys. To cut a long story short things got really dark. I gave up on everything in my life but most of all I gave up on myself. Life on life’s terms became to much for me to handle," she confused. "The only way I knew how to function was to self medicate and go from project to project so I never had to focus on what was really going on with me. Something had to give... and it did. I have spend the past year truly working on my mind body and soul! I had to take a step out of the public eye away from work and give myself a chance to heal and figure out who the fuck I really am without a camera in my face."
She went on to thank her family for their support and to apologize to anyone she may have let down. "I want to take this time to thank my brother @jackosbourne who answered the phone to me one year ago today and picked me up from where I had fallen yet again without judgment. He has held my hand through out this whole process. Thank you to my Mum and Dad for never giving up on me. I love my family with all my heart. Thank you to the friends who have walked the path of sobriety with me I could not have done this with out there love and support," she gushed. "I can’t believe It’s been a year!!! I still don’t know who the fuck I am or what the fuck I want but I can whole heartedly confess that I’m finally at peace with myself and truly starting to understand what true happiness is. I’m sorry if I let anyone down it was just time for me to work on me! I love you guys!"
