Kelly Osbourne was locked in a mental institution for three days for her drug and alcohol addiction..
In her new memoir, 'There Is No F***ing Secret: Letters From a Badass B***h', the TV host has revealed that her mother Sharon took the drastic measure to send her to the facility in a desperate bid to get her clean.
The 32-year-old star - whose father Ozzy Osbourne has battled drug and alcohol abuse issues and sex addiction - writes: ''Mum once locked me in a mental institution for three days and it scared the hell out of me ... I had to wear paper shoes, since I could potentially kill myself with a shoelace and wasn't allowed to have anything metal not even a spoon. I was suicidal by medical standards but I heard mum's message loud and clear: stop using drugs before I was gone for good.''

He confesses he was just feeling lonely.
It's been nearly six months since Ozzy Osbourne came out as a sex addict following his affair with an LA hair stylist behind wife Sharon Osbourne's back, but now he admits that it was all just an excuse because he'd been caught cheating. He has now revealed the real reason he strayed.
Ozzy Osbourne admits he's not really a sex addict
The Black Sabbath rocker, who is currently performing his last ever tour with the band, decided to be open and honest about his affair last year and confessed that it wasn't down to an addiction to sex at all despite what his representative said in his official statement at the time.
The revelation comes in Osbourne’s upcoming book, ‘There Is No F**king Secret’.
In her upcoming book There Is No F**cking Secret: Letters From A Badass Bitch, Kelly writes that Ozzy ended up being rushed to hospital in the same ambulance as his wife, after downing a handful of pills and washing them down with vodka.

"They're working on it," Jack said. "You know, they're trying to rein it in. They've been together for so long and this isn't their first rodeo. They don't have this picture-perfect marriage, and they've never claimed to, so they're just trying to figure it out, I guess.”

This year's Download Festival turned out to be a very wet weekend with constant downpours and thunderstorms throughout the three days, but what would 'Drownload' festival be without a little bit of rain? Thick with mud and soggy from the rain, the crowds all gathered looking for a fantastic time and with phenomenal headliners Rammstein, Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden the weekend was never going to disappoint. Aside from the wrestling and the creative Zippo lighters that you could engrave in the Zippo Encore booth, as well as get hold of the limited edition Download Zippo lighter, the music line up for this year's festival was phenomenal - and we can't wait for the next Download festival already.
There were multiple highlights throughout the weekend, and as we stocked up on burgers, we headed down to the Lemmy stage to catch one of the more out-there acts of the weekend - Babymetal. Babymetal were mesmerising as they always are, with hit songs Gimme Chocolate and Road To Resistance taking the crowd by storm. A giant circle pit opened as the Japanese J-pop/metal band took to the stage and gave a fantastically choreographed performance as always.
Killswitch Engage managed to slay the stage as they always do, even in the torrential downpour that overtook their set, as the band plunged into hit songs My Curse, Strength Of The Mind and My Last Serenade, there was nothing that they can do to disappoint. A huge crowd turned out to watch the band, even in the mudpit that the Lemmy stage gave way to.

We're still no closer to predicting how this is going to end.
It's been a month since Sharon Osbourne and Ozzy Osbourne appeared to go their separate ways after the latter's alleged affair with an LA hair stylist, but things have gone a little quiet since then. And with Sharon supporting Black Sabbath at Download Festival, does this mean their relationship is on the mend?
Sharon Osbourne supports her husband
Sharon looked positively glowing with pride as she watched her allegedly adulterous husband perform with his band Black Sabbath at Download Festival in Donnington, Leicestershire on Saturday (June 11th 2016), sparking rumours that their 34-year-long marriage may not be as over as everyone thinks.
The couple’s split was announced last week, after 33 years of marriage.
Sharon Osbourne is said to have called in divorce lawyers in order to end her 33 year marriage to Ozzy Osbourne, according to TMZ. The reports come just one day after the estranged couple shared a stage together at an LA press conference to announce the merging of Ozzfest and Knotfest. However their appearance together was not a sign of a reconciliation and Sharon is now said to be moving ahead with the divorce.
Sharon Osbourne and Ozzy Osbourne are divorcing.
On Tuesday (May 10th) Sharon confirmed her split from Ozzy, when appearing on ‘The Talk’. “I've been avoiding looking at any pictures or reading anything. I know what's going on," Sharon said. "I don't need to read about it and see about it because it's like putting salt in a wound. So I don't need to.”
Is one of showbiz's most explosive marriages coming to an end?
It surfaced over the weekend that Sharon Osbourne had thrown her husband Ozzy Osbourne out of their $10 million Beverly Hills mansion after alleging that he'd been cheating on her with a celebrity hair stylist. So far, it's all been a bit of a mess, but both Ozzy and Sharon have spoken out publicly now.

Here's everything we know so far about the split and what we can expect from the pair in the future:

However, despite rumours of an imminent divorce, he was still wearing his wedding ring and he assured his fans that he hadn’t fallen off the wagon, amid fears that this episode might have triggered a relapse.

Sharon Osbourne confirms the return of family reality show 'The Osbournes'.
One of MTV's most popular reality series is finally coming back. Sharon Osbourne has revealed that 'The Osbournes' will make a brief return in the form of a six to eight short episodes, though MTV will not be airing it this time around.
The Osbournes are back!
The family's matriarch Sharon Osbourne confirmed the re-shoot on 'The Talk' earlier this week, but insists that the show will mark more of an update in the family as opposed to an actual major series. 'At most, there will only be six to eight episodes and a catch-up on our lives and where we are now, because it's been so long since we've been seen as a family and our family has grown', she commented on the show. 'We have a granddaughter and a gorgeous daughter-in-law.'
Sharon Osbourne admits she did not hesitate to ask for a divorce during Ozzy's alcohol and drugs lapse.
'The X Factor' judge has always epitomised female strength with her bouncing back tenfold after every ordeal she has been through. But now she unveils exactly what happened when Ozzy started binging on prescription drugs and consuming alcohol after seven years of sobriety, and how she demanded a divorce from the love of her life following 30 years of marriage, all in her new book 'Unbreakable'. According to the Mirror, the book reveals how she found incriminating texts messages on Ozzy's phone regarding his drug hunting and the pain she went through on revealing to her children Jack, Kelly and Aimee that she wished to separate from him just before they were to celebrate their 30 year anniversary.
And she has every reason to make such a rash decision, having previously given the former Black Sabbath star many chances to curb his alcoholism and drug use after several episodes of physical abuse from the troubled rocker; one being when he was arrested for attempted murder after attempting to strangle her in 1989.
Kelly Osbourne and her boyfriend Matthew Mosshart are now engaged after two years of dating
Matthew Mosshart, brother of The Dead Weather/The Kills lead singer Alison Mosshart, has popped the question to his girlfriend Kelly Osbourne, who is the daughter of Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne. Mosshart, a vegan chef-turned model, mustered up the courage to ask Kelly to marry him whilst the pair were on holiday on the island of Anguilla in the Caribbean. The couple met whilst at model Kate Moss and The Kills guitarist Jamie Hince's wedding in 2011, where Matthew's sister Alison was best woman. They tried out a distance relationship at first - Osbourne lives in L.A whilst Mosshart lived in New York, but after a year he made the decision to uproot his NY home and job to be with his love on the other side of the country - the "biggest sacrifice," according to 28-year old Kelly.
Matthew Mosshart & Kelly Osbourne Are Now Engaged.
She told Hello! Magazine via Sky News that her engagement ring was inspired by her father's earring: "I used to hold my finger up to his ear when I was little and say: 'I want a ring like that'. Now I have one." In a rather romantic statement, Mosshart had admitted "I knew she was The One pretty early on," with Kelly claiming to All Voices that her boyfriend's vegan diet and positive attitude to healthy eating helped the TV personality, who has previously struggled with her weight, shedding 63 pounds last year. The pair are clearly as smitten as possible, with Kelly proclaiming "Matthew has broken down every one of my walls. There's nothing I wouldn't do in front of him."

Could Black Sabbath battle to the top of the charts?
Black Sabbath are back and it looks like they're back with a bang too, with the metal overlords looking set to score their first number one on the album chart in 43 years. 13 was released at the beginning of this week and it has been slowly creeping up the charts, and it could have a good chance of reaching the coveted spot by the end of the week.The album - the first to feature the (mostly) original lineup of Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler (drummer Burt Ward was forced to sit out the recording process because of health reasons) in 35-years - currently sits at the top of the mid-week charts, however it cannot officially claim to be an official number one until the end of the week. With no real threat in the charts to challenge it for the top spot - bar Liam Gallagher’s Beady Eye perhaps - so it looks like the band may be on to recreate the feat their 1970 album Paranoid.
The album was produced by acclaimed Def Jam co-founder Rick Rubin and features Rage Against The Machine’s Brad Wilkes sitting in for Ward, and critics are hailing the album as a return to the doom-laded guitar riffs of the band's classic albums from the 70's. Frontman Osbourne declared his surprise at the album's success earlier today, saying “I can’t believe Black Sabbath may have its first number one album in 43 years.”
The band will continue their world tour in support of the album over the rest of the year, having already played in New Zealand, Australia and parts of Asia. The tour reaches London's O2 Arena in December and will arrive at Houston's Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavillion on July 25.
"Sinners be damned": Black Sabbath are back with a delightfully evil single 'God Is Dead?' from new album '13' and a monster stadium tour.
Showing the blackest of their hearts - now presumably kept pulsing with pacemakers - Black Sabbath have released first single from new album 13 : 'God Is Dead?' with an accompanying video that depicts swirling green galaxies, blood bathed streets and eerily fuzzy TV screens.
At first listen, Black Sabbath's brand new single 'God Is Dead?' has all the tell-tale signs of Rick Rubin's slick production; a man whose capable hands are famed for reinvigorating scores of rock bands, such as ZZ Top.
The track settles into clonging, downbeat death-knell guitars and decidedly evil lyrics from Ozzy, with some "novel" rhyming ("out of the gloom I rise up from my tomb into impending doom"), which forms the first 6 minutes of their 9 minute epic, before picking up pace and volume, eventually breaking out climatically into pure metal heaven as Ozzy cries out "God Is Dead!" over Geezer's rolling drumbeat thumps and a classic heavy riffage that will bring tears of joy to fans.

Bassist Geezer Butler has said that he would be up for another album if the rest of the group were
Metal overlords Black Sabbath are back, and not for the first time either, only this time round they've got a brand new album full of original stuff. And this might not be the last time we see the Brummie boys in the studio either, with bassist Geezer Butler admitting in an interview this week that he would be open to another album.
Featuring an almost entirely original line-up (drummer Bill Ward was not present for recording because of health problems) since 1978's Never Say Die, the band will stay true to the title of their last album with Ozzy Osbourne as frontman and release 13 later this month. Although it has been labelled as the 'final' album from the band, by the press and Sabbath themselves, after a string of successful reunion shows over the past year, Geezer spoke with Billboard this week when he revealed that he has been encouraged by the success to enough to think that another album could be a possibility.
"Let's put it this way; it's taken us 35 years to do this one," Butler told Billboard, "So if there's gonna be (another) album there's gonna be an album but I don't want to say if there's going to be a follow-up. I wouldn't mind doing another Sabbath album with them, though."
The bassist for the metal Gods has said that he would be up for making another Sabbath album if the rest of the group are interested
Black Sabbath made their monumental return to the studio to record their first album with an almost entirely original line-up (drummer Bill Ward was not present for recording because of health problems) since 1978's Never Say Die, with 13 being released later this month.
Confident from how things went this time round, bassist Geezer Butler has now said that despite it taking some 35 years for the group to record their new album together, the band could be persuaded to go back to the studio much sooner this time around. Although touted as the 'final' album from the band following a string of successful reunion shows over the past year, Geezer was speaking with Billboard this week when he revealed that, like the title of the 1978 album, that he is holding on to a 'never say never' resolution as to where the metal founders might go next.
"Let's put it this way; it's taken us 35 years to do this one," Butler told Billboard, adding, "So if there's gonna be (another) album there's gonna be an album but I don't want to say if there's going to be a follow-up. I wouldn't mind doing another Sabbath album with them, though."

Rumours surface that Sharon Osbourne will return to TV talent show, with record-breaking salary
Sharon Osbourne’s private life may well be in turmoil but she doesn’t seem to be allowing it to affect her career as the Daily Mail reports today that she’s reportedly landed a £2 million deal to return to x factor in the UK. If the reports are accurate, it will mean that not only will Osbourne return to the show, after leaving in 2007, but she will become the highest paid judge in the show’s history.
It is thought that the show’s creator, Simon Cowell, is ‘desperate’ to have Sharon return to the show to boost ratings, which have been steadily dropping in the last two years. Although Sharon has made a number of guest apperances on the show since she left – namely at Louis Walsh’s house in the ‘judges’ houses’ rounds, this will be the first time in six years that she’s actually been one of the official judges. Known for her no-nonsense approach, Cowell is clearly looking to shake up the line-up on the panel.
Recently, it has been reported that Sharon Osbourne’s marriage to husband Ozzy Osbourne (the Black Sabbath singer) is on the rocks. Ozzy made a public announcement that his addiction to drink and drugs has reared its head again and has taken its toll on their marriage. Regardless, both Sharon and Ozzy seem to remain focused on their careers, with Ozzy about to embark on a tour with Sabbath and Sharon apparently planning a return to the high profile TV show.
Sharon Osbourne's 911 call in January reveals Ozzy rant while he has admitted to using drugs during that time.
Rumours that the Osbourne couple, who famously broadcasted their family affairs in the MTV reality show 'The Osbournes' in 2002, are set to divorce after more than 30 years of marriage have been circling like wildfire around the internet over the past few weeks. And talking of wildfire, new evidence suggests there might be more to that blaze that took place at their home in January 2013. TMZ released Sharon's 911 tape from the incident in February in which we hear her breathlessly asking for the fire department to be called to the house. 'We had a fire in my room it was a candle. Do you think you could send a fireman? My husband put it out but I just want to be sure', she explained before later adding, rather sharply, 'It set the table it was on on fire.' On re-listening, Ozzy can be heard shouting what sounds like it could be an obscenity incoherently in the background as Sharon takes her time to speak to emergency services.
This and the fact that he has addressed the rumours on his Facebook page with the following message: 'For the last year and a half I have been drinking and taking drugs. However, I am happy to say that I am now 44 days sober. Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing', suggests that there could've been something else going on that night as Ozzy is well known for acting erratically and often dangerously under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
Ozzy's marriage is in trouble but his band Black Sabbath is off on tour
North American Tour Dates Announced For Troubled Ozzy Osbourne’s Black Sabbath Is this really a good idea for Ozzy? As rumours of a split between Ozzy Osbourne and his wife Sharon gradually seem to carry more weight, the Black Sabbath singer now needs to prepare to go on tour. Reports have suggested that Ozzy and Sharon’s split is down to his substance addictions; surely going on tour with his rock band isn’t the best place for getting over such problems?
Luckily for Ozzy, he currently only has four dates to contend with, they’re not until August and they’re spread out across the course of a month so hopefully he’ll be able to keep himself out of trouble. The band also have a new album planned, entitled 13, according to Rolling Stone magazine, so presumably, they’ll be busy doing promo work for that in between the live dates. The album’s planned for release on June 11th and is the band’s first with Ozzy Osbourne since 1978’s Never Say Die! 13 is produced by Rick Rubin and contains eight new tracks. The lead track, ‘End of the Beginning,’ will debut on the season finale of CSI.
Last year, the band was forced to postpone a planned tour when their guitarist Tony Iommi was diagnosed with early stage lymphoma. Since he underwent treatment, the band have booked shows in Europe, Australia Japan and New Zealand.
Sharon's 911 call reveals some insights into the couple's turbulent marriage.
A bit of celebrity drama always helps the day move along, but Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne’s marital strife looks too serious to be entertaining, especially after the Sharon Osbourne 911 tape was leaked. According to a report by TMZ, the recording from 4.45AM on January 17 this year features a less than coherent Ozzy Osbourne and a frantic Sharon, asking for help after an unattended candle lit a table at their home on fire. This was during the time when Ozzy was still abusing drugs and alcohol, before his 45 days and counting sobriety streak.
Apparently, in the tape, Sharon sounds like the one who was caught unawares by the fire. Additionally, Ozzy reportedly doesn’t sound like himself. The situation prompted a lot of speculation from various media sources, but in reality, very little is known for certain, even with the evidence on the tape. The candle accident may or may not have had something to do with the couple’s separation, but according to Sharon’s statements, Ozzy’s addiction certainly did. In fact, the reality star has set an ultimatum for her rockstar husband – she will only take him back after he’s been clean for months. And after a year and a half of substance abuse, the condition seems completely reasonable.
Sharon vows to only take back Ozzy after he's clean.
Ozzy Osbourne has admitted to taking drink and drugs recently, though claims he has been sober for over a month.
Ozzy Osbourne has admitted bingeing on drink and drugs for the last 18 months, following news that he has separated from wife Sharon. The British singer released a statement on his Facebook page, revealing that he's been in a "very dark place" and apologizing to his family.
"Just to set the record straight, Sharon and I are not divorcing," Osbourne, 64, said, "I'm just trying to be a better person." The lead singer of the heavy metal band Black Sabbath - who will tour in the UK later this year, said he had been drinking and taking drugs for the last year and a half though has been sober for 44 days. "I would like to apologize to Sharon, my family, my friends," added the rocker, before saying he'd behaved like "an asshole" to the people he loved the most.
Though Ozzy was one of the world's most recognizable rockers, he and his somewhat dysfunctional family gained worldwide fame after starring in their own MTV reality show 'The Osbournes,' which gave an insight into their family life in Beverly Hills. Since then, Sharon has judged and hosted numerous reality shows, Kelly has forged a career in fashion criticism, and Jack has remained on television. Ozzy has kept a relatively low profile in comparison.

Is this the next celebrity couple to bite the dust?
It was reported yesterday, in the wake of the Osbourne split rumor, that Sharon Osbourne had moved into a new Beverly Hills mansion, away from her husband Ozzy, just days after being pictured without her wedding band on.
Today, the Black Sabbath frontman confirms their troubles, talking to The Sun. Ozzy admitted: “Sharon’s obsessed with that showbiz lifestyle. But it’s not for me. Leave me out of it. And Sharon’s always introducing me to people I don’t know or want to meet. The reality show was all Sharon’s idea. I never wanted to do all that TV stuff.” The Osbournes followed the whole family in their home, filming all their intimate moments. Looking back, it’s increasingly obvious that Ozzy had no clue what was going on 90% of the time. “I was TV mogul of the day with that show and I became this thing I didn’t really want to be,” he added. “People were recognising me on the streets and it wasn’t right. I once had a man come up to me and say ‘I don’t think you should speak to your wife like that.’ I didn’t know him but he’d seen the show. I can’t stand seeing myself on TV. I never watched a single episode of The Osbournes."
Ozzy Osbourne is still going with Black Sabbath
The famous couple seem to be in a rough patch
Could this be the end of Sharon and Ozzy Ozbourne? Say it isn’t so. The Talk co-host was spotted moving into a brand new mansion, and just days after being seen not wearing her wedding ring, too.
"They are living at different addresses and not spending any time together," a source is quoted as saying to The Sun "They row a lot. They aren't acting like husband and wife. It is unusual to not even have dinner together when both of them are five minutes apart." Another source had plenty to say to The Mirror, too; this time about their financial woes. “The financial situation has been a real burden for them both and has put huge strain on them. These were big bills, and it has been very difficult for both of them.” There’s no shortage of clues in this supposed divorce. Their daughter Kelly tweeted: “Why does every family in the world have that 1 member that will never get it and is completely ignorant to life in general?” What does this mean!?
Are these two destined for paper signing and splitting of assets?
Black Sabbath have revealed that they are recording their first album together with original members for the first time since 1978's Never Say Die, with the album set to be titled 13.
Three of the original four members - Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi and Geezer Butler - have been in the studio recording the long awaited album for the past few months, enlisting the help of Rage Against The Machine drummer Brad Wilk on drums to stand in for Bill Ward. Unfortunately health problems have plagued Ward and as such, with a heavy heart, the band have had to continue without him. Iommi assessed the situation with Ward in November last year, telling Blaring Out magazine: "We'll always have a heart for Bill, but I think it's gone past that now, because it's gone on so long I don't see that happening at the moment."
In the interview, Iommi also revealed that the album will be 15 tacks long and it has also been revealed that the album was produced by the legendary Rick Rubin, who has worked with such artists as System of a Down, Jay Z, Public Enemy, Beastie Boys, Metallica and Johnny Cash. On top of this, the band have also announced a number of tour dates for the near future, in Australia, New Zealand and Japan's Ozzfest, and are expected to extend these dates as well as perform on the festival circuit.

Despite making some of the most uncompromising music of the last 30 years, Motorhead for some strange reason, cross all boundaries. This is undoubtedly down to the enduring appeal of Lemmy - a man who's stuck to his guns and done things on his own terms to the point where he has just ended up being accepted.
Which gives credence to the fact that If you spend long enough doing something and which such conviction, people will eventually come round to your way of thinking. As a rock 'n' roll icon his influence has touched almost everyone who is anyone and the most surprising thing of all about this documentary is the sheer breadth of people who have fallen under his influence. The usual rock crowd is to be expected. Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, Dee Snider (Twisted Sister), Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana), Metallica etc but its appearances of others such as Jarvis Cocker, Peter Hook (Joy Division), Mick Jones (The Clash), Marky Ramone (The Ramones) and Billy Bob Thornton that most surprise.

Having now seen "Little Nicky," in which Adam Sandler plays the retarded son of Satan, I have formulated a hypothesis I'm calling the Sandler Theory of Exponentially Obnoxious Returns. It goes something like this:
Adam Sandler goes out of his way to make each gimmick character he plays ("Billy Madison," "Happy Gilmore") more grating than the last, just to see how far he can push it before his easily amused fan base will turn on him.
His most detestable character to date had been "The Waterboy," but that Southern-fried dope was mister congeniality compared to Nicky, the little devil that couldn't. Sandler spends this entire movie with his face screwed up in a hit-by-a-shovel grimace and speaking in a silly, raspy voice like a little kid pretending to be sick so he can stay home from school. There's no joke here. It's just Sandler's version of stretching as an actor.

The cameo-driven, "Mission: Impossible 2"-spoofing, movie-within-a-movie, pre-title sequence of "Austin Powers in Goldmember" is the funniest five minutes to date in this spy comedy franchise. Then Mike Myers shows up and ruins everything.
Still trapped in a skit-comedy frame of mind all these years after leaving "Saturday Night Live," his short attention span has made the "Austin Powers" movies little more than a string of brief, loosely-related set pieces which are often 98 percent setup and 2 percent punch line.
Myers goes miles out of his way to make a reference to the 1983 song "Mr. Roboto" by the band Styx, for example. Then he spends nebulously unfunny gaps between such gags to make fleeting mentions of the plot, which in this case concerns Dr. Evil -- Myers cueball goofball homage to James Bond's maniacal bald nemesis Blofeld -- teaming up with an scabby Dutch roller-disco owner named Goldmember whom Evil has transported from the 1970s.
