Kelly Osbourne detailed her struggles to overcome addiction for the September edition of Cosmopolitan U.K., according to People, telling the magazine that her mother and co-host of “The TalkSharon Osbourne did everything possible to get her to overcome her dependency.

“I’ve been to rehab seven times and to two mental institutions,” Osbourne said of her battle, late noting that “My mum even had me put in a padded cell once to scare me, but like a brat I just sat it out until she said, ‘Well, that’s not going to work.’”

Of course, multiple members of the famed Osbourne family have battled addiction, including her father Ozzy and brother Jack. In fact, Ozzy relapsed earlier this year and was only recently released from rehab.

However, the “Fashion Police” star noted that she realized that she was pushing away friends and family and that motivated her to get clean.

“What changed for me was looking around and seeing that nobody liked me or wanted to work with me.”
