Kelly Osbourne, drunk on a plane.
The fashion designer/television personality confirmed that she was indeed intoxicated on a June 19th flight from Los Angeles to Atlanta and she gives the details to RadarOnline.
Osbourne reveals that before boarding the flight, a stranger approached her wanting to talk about her brother/best friend Jack’s recent diagnosis with Multiple Sclerosis.

Having attended rehab in the past, she makes no apologies for having a spiked beverage here and there.
“I have not lied about it. I have the occasional drink. I will never lie about that. That’s my choice that I make and I’m an adult and I have to be responsible for my actions.”
She then goes on to put things into perspective with a stellar pop culture reference regarding Twilight Zone: The Movie.
“But it’s not like I was f*cking claiming there was a colonial woman on the wing. Like I was so out of it they had to land the plane or something. I got drunk on a plane, big deal.”
She then makes the point that the incident does not indicate a larger problem with substance abuse, “I’m not using, I haven’t. I won’t. I’m not going to do that.”
She continually stresses the importance of owning up to your actions (a rare belief among young Hollywood), and remarks that even though the angst was justified, it’s not necessarily an excuse for her behavior.
And she doesn’t want Jack to worry for her, ““I can’t stand knowing that he probably is thinking that it was because of him being diagnosed that I made a fool of myself. I made a fool of myself regardless of Jack and I hate that that’s even out there.”
So basically it’s a case of bad timing: girl gets upsetting news, has a drink to calm her nerves, which unfortunately makes her more upset…queue the judging public yielding camera phones.
