Osbourne Relieved She Didn't Die Like Jackson

KELLY OSBOURNE is relieved she's managed to overcome her painkiller addiction - because she fears she would have suffered the same fate as MICHAEL JACKSON.
Ozzy Osbourne's daughter has a long history of substance abuse but successfully conquered her demons following several stints in rehab.
The reality star has now opened up about her drug problems in a new interview with British journalist Piers Morgan, revealing at the height of her downward spiral she was taking up to 50 pills a day.
And she is still haunted by the deaths of stars like the late King of Pop, who died from an overdose of prescription painkillers, because she is convinced she was heading down the same tragic path.
In an upcoming episode of Piers Morgan's Life Stories, she says, "At the start I only took one (pill) every weekend. Then it was one every weekday, then two a day, then three. By the end I was taking so many pills I was on my hands and knees vomiting blood because the drug was ripping away my stomach lining. I was taking 50 a day, more than twice the legal dosage, and every day I took one more, hoping I wouldn't wake up.
"If I hadn't gone into rehab then, I'm sure I wouldn't be here now. I feel very lucky because people die every day from taking painkillers like Vicodin, and I was taking much more than them. Michael Jackson, Brittany Murphy - the list goes on. But I got a chance to fix my life."

I am certainly glad for Kelly Osborne that she kicked her habit to prescription medication. However, the continued pairing of Michael Jackson's name with prescription drug abuse creates the wrong image. Jackson's autopsy report sates that the only drugs in his system were the ones given to him by his Doctor that evening/morning. there were no other drugs. None from earlier in the day etc. It also states that all of his internal organs were healthy. This would not be the case if he had had a continual, long- term problem with drugs. It is really quite simple. Jackson was having trouble sleeping (a side-effect of Lupus), he was having trouble showing up for some rehearsals because of lack of sleep. People from AEG went to his house, told him that he MUST follow Dr. Murray's orders in order to comply with his contract or he would lose everything, including the house that was being rented for him by AEG. Dr. Murray was told that he must make sure that Jackson could sleep. He alone gave Jackson the drugs that in combination and quantity stopped Michael Jackson's heart. In other words, Michael Jackson was killed.

MICHAEL JACKSON was murdered!!!!!!!!!!!there is quite a difference between Osbourne & MICHAEL JACKSON........First of all if you read the autopsy report all of them thoroughly, you will see that MICHAEL JACKSON did NOT have any drugs in his body except Propofol, he had a healthy body......The doctor let this be gross neglect, he couldn't care less what happened to his patient.......he gave him the propofol and let his patient die..........The doctor was only interested in money......... nothing else.........

I am so happy that you were able to get off drugs. Take it one day at a time and congratulations. I'm also glad that you were not killed like Michael Jackson. He died at the hands of a doctor who, for some reason, decided to give Michael Jackson a medication used only for anesthesia. It would be the appropriate thing if you would recant publicly or here at contactmusic.com your error. It is even unknown if Michael even knew what Dr. Conrad Murray was giving him or the dangers of it, but Dr. Murray knew he might kill Michael Jackson with this type of medication but did not have the equipment to help him if needed. Michael wrote a song called "Money". You might want to listen to it if you want to know why he was killed.

Oh contactmusic writer, be sure to let the LA coroner's office know what MJ died of so they can correct the official autopsy report that says he died of acute Propofol intoxication, k?

"And she is still haunted by the deaths of stars like the late King of Pop, who died from an overdose of prescription painkillers, because she is convinced she was heading down the same tragic path." Stop directing your WMD- Wrongful Medialoid Defamation at Jackson. In a just world, you would be forced to edit this disgustingly inaccurate comment. Comparing Osbourne to Jackson is apples to oranges.Jackson died while being treated for dibilitating insomnia. AEG did not provide Murray with the life-saving equipment and nurse he had requested. There were no painkillers in his system.

Well that's usefull information. Nice to know what all the other celebretys are getting or went through with their prescription drugs addiction. All fortune and glory there. Remember the audio sample of Mike played on the memorial? "Fame, fortune , it is all an illusion?" Yeah, people are looking up to people wwho are vomiting blood cause of a addiction. Nice, very nice. Larry King asked dokter Drew Pinsky how it was that Michael seemed healthy on the autopsy. Pinsky ansered that prescription drugs don't leave any marks. Euh, wasn't Michael on the same drugs like Kelly Osbourne to? Lucky for him he didn't have the same side-affects. Or not? Maybe then he would have stopped with that crap. Lucky girl. For her to realize to stop with that crap. Cause why the hell are most of the celebreties on that prescription crap anyway? No excuse (maybe a little bit)for pain becuase of a fall, plastic corrections, or media-attention. They were the ones who took all that crap. And when they die everybody is looking for an excuse. Countless examples of tragic deaths by presciption drugs in Hollywood Babylon. Why not Michael? After all he was the King of it all. Michael was pumped full of Propofol and died of it. But he had a lot of other drugs in his system and hidden in his home. Wich could have killed him anyway. And again and over again. What kind of lunatic is going to use Propofol to go to sleep?. It is not prescription drugs, not sleeping pills or marhiuana that they found at his home. Or whatever. It is a f**king narcotic used in a hospital for surgery! You can put down a elephant with that garbage. Who in the world is going to take that? Yeah, right, only MichaeL Jackson, the king of pop. And he tried so hard not be portraid as a freak. Well, that should work. If you are still alive despite taking that crap Propofol. Cause then no one is going to find out that you are on an anestethic to go to sleep. "No, I am not that weird as the media says." Pffff, this should have been a great paparazzi story. But then you think: "No, that is not treu. Those are just rumors." Euh. It is all so tragic, but I am human. Michael was my childhood hero. But a little voice inside me says about all this painfull destruction of the King of Pop: "Don't make me laugh." Both dokter Murray and Jackson were a bunch of f**king idiots. "Dokter, I have sleeping problems." "O, no problem, I have some anhestetic for you. No problem. Like in the song "Morphine". Listen to the learics very carefully. No not "Heal The World" there has been enough listening to that. It won't work. Listen to "Morphin". Enough eerie simularities in there. Conclusion? Both of them, Michael and Murray were a bunch of wacko's. That girl Osbourne is lucky to be alive. And she could also have gotten Propofol with her money and celebrety status. How to easy with fame and fortune. "Sleeping problems? O no problem. I have all the money in the world and a crazy dokter to help me out." Euh hello?! Anybody home in that head of yours? Jesus f**king Christ!

It makes me sick how the media minipulates the facts. None of the Jackson family had anything to do with drugs. Michael Jackson,s adrenaline would reach a very high level after concerts and rehearsals that it would keep him awake for a straight couple of days afterwards. The AEG made sure he would have all the rest needed for the rehearsals especially with the count down and the fear of the show not being 100% ready at time. Many parties contributed in his death and "YOU WOULD DO ANYTHING FOR MONEY"
