Kelly Osbourne has opened up to her fans revealing she relapsed after nearly four years of sobriety.

The star came clean on her Instagram story, sharing, "This is a little hard for me to talk about, but I've always promised you that I will always be honest with you about where I'm at and what's going on in my road to recovery."

While she's not proud of the sudden relapse, Kelly did reassure her followers that she was back on the right track.

"I relapsed. Not proud of it," she continued. "But I am 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 also admitted that it won't be an overnight cure. Instead, she explained that she's, "sober today and I'm gonna be sober tomorrow, but it truly is just one day at a time."

Kelly concluded her talk by reassuring fans that she would never want to lie to them. In the past, she's typically been very open about her struggles with drugs and alcohol.

"And I just wanted to tell you guys the truth, 'cause I never, ever want to lie to you," she added. "Thank you so much for your support and your love, and you'll be hearing from me soon."

Back in August, Kelly celebrated two years of sobriety and took to Instagram to share her achievement.

"I woke up this morning feeling overwhelmed with gratitude. I can't even put into words how much my life has changed over the last 2 years," she wrote as a caption.

In 2020, she also decided to start putting herself first (something she also struggles with). In another caption, she wrote about how she was turning over a new leaf and prioritizing herself.

"With almost 2½ years of sobriety under my belt, I still struggle with confrontation (which was NEVER a problem when I was using). Well, this all STOPS today," she said. "It's time to put myself first, stop taking on other people's s--- and be the badass sober women [sic] I was born to be."

The Osbournes have been making headlines lately, especially after Kelly's mother, Sharon Osbourne refused to leave The Talk due to an on-air clash she had with her co-host Sheryl Underwood. Since the scandal, Sharon has apologized to fans and Sheryl for her words and has left the show. The drama has only ensued though when Sheryl broke her silence over the racism talks and opened up about how it affected her.
