Kelly Osbourne reveals she's estranged from older sister Aimee after admitting she relapsed in sobriety battle
KELLY Osbourne has revealed she's estranged from her older sister Aimee because they don't "uderstand" each other.
The TV personality, 36, admitted she "doesn't talk" to Aimee, 37, and said they're "really different".
"We don't talk," Kelly said on Dax Shepard's podcast Armchair Expert on Monday.
Dax asked, "You don't talk at all?" and she responded: "Yeah."
The former Fashion Police judge explained: "We're just really different. She doesn't understand me and I don't understand her."
Aimee – who is Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne's eldest child – did not star on The Osbournes' reality show with Kelly and her brother Jack.
She moved out of the family's house at the age of 16 and has stayed largely out of the spotlight since.
Aimee discussed her strained relationship with Kelly in 2015, telling The Independent: "I wouldn't say there is an ease between us, but there is an acceptance.
"Do we socialize? No."
She added that she did not appear on The Osbournes because she wanted to "protect herself" and felt her siblings were too "young and impressionable" to appear on the reality show.
"Back then, I still felt I was trying to figure out who I was in the chaos of family life, so why on earth would I want that portrayed on television?" she said.
"I wanted to protect myself, my parents, my siblings, too. They were very young, very impressionable."
Last month, Kelly admitted she relapsed after four years of sobriety from drugs and alcohol.
She got sober in 2017 after previously admitting she came close to death while taking a cocktail of drugs every night.
"This is a little hard for me to talk about but I've always promised you I will be honest with you about where I'm at and what's going on on my road to recovery," she told fans on her Instagram Stories.
"I relapsed, not proud of it but I'm back on track and I will be doing a podcast this week where I tell everybody about what's going on and what happened."
She said she's taking things "one day at a time" and says she wanted to tell fans the "truth" because she "never wants to lie" to them.
Kelly's admission comes after she revealed last year that she would pass out every night from taking amphetamines, tranquilisers and marijuana.
Kelly spent years fooling her mum Sharon into believing she was sober by passing off stolen Alcoholics Anonymous sobriety chips as her own.
She admitted that – at the time – she was only ever drug-free for a month.
The presenter told pal DJ Fat Tony on his podcast, The Recovery: “I’ve only ever had about 30 days of clean time, which is when I was in treatment, then I would come out and get high again."
“But I lied about it. I used to steal 60-day AA chips and give them to my mum so she would take me out for dinner," she admitted.
"I never thought I’d be alive at 35 years old. A lot of my friends didn’t make it and burying them was hard. I had survivor’s guilt for a long time. I’m almost three years sober.”
She has had seven trips to rehab and her family have previously tried to keep her away from drugs by putting her in a padded cell.
