Kelly Osbourne has reportedly “broke down” because of the devastating news that her brother Jack has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis on a recent flight as the pressure of the news got to her.
Younger brother Jack revealed recently that he had been diagnosed with MS and Kelly may have been drowning her sorrows as according to eye-witnesses was drinking heavily on the flight and had to be helped off by her assistant.
“I saw a flight attendant bring alcoholic beverages over to Kelly’s section in First Class at least four or five times,” the eyewitness told Star magazine.
“And when we landed just after midnight, her assistant, who flew with her, had to help her off the plane. They were the last to leave. There was already a burly security guard waiting for them at the arrivals lounge.”
When the TV and radio presenter boarded the flight she was said to have looked “gorgeous” but after a few drinks she wasn’t exactly photo ready.
“Kelly’s hair was hanging down, she was mumbling and her makeup was a mess,” the source revealed.
As she left the flight, Kelly reportedly could barely walk. “The guard and her assistant supported her under each arm and basically carried her down the corridor to the airport tram, with Kelly swaying from side to side. I felt so sorry for her.”
The 27 year-old took to Twitter the next day and though did not refer to the flight directly did refer to a “breakdown” she had had.
She tweeted: “had a nerves breakdown yesterday that was cool! #Not.”
A source close to the star claimed she wasn’t surprised that Kelly, who has previously been to rehab for addiction to prescription pills was struggling to cope with the news, especially as she is so close to her brother.
“[Kelly is] tough as nails, and she always lands on her feet. She’s had so much to deal with at a young age, and she’s tried to handle it the best she can,” they said.
“I wouldn’t be surprised at all if the sudden sad news about Jack helped push her into a dark place again. But she’ll come through it OK.”
