Kelly Osbourne has been open about her addiction struggles, and in the most recent episode of The Osbournes Podcast, she spoke about her hopes that a life of drug and alcohol use has "embalmed" her from developing cancer.

“I’m hoping that I’ve embalmed myself so I don’t ever get cancer,” the 39-year-old daughter of Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne declared. “I’m pickled from all the drugs and alcohol, for sure.”

She went on to point out the disease runs in the family, with her mother Sharon suffering from colon cancer in 2002. "The apple doesn't fall far," she added.

Kelly's brother Jack Osbourne shut down her theory. “I don’t think it works that way," he replied. "But I’m no doctor.”

Kelly, who welcomed her first child in late 2022, has previously said she first became addicted to drugs at age 13, when she was prescribed Vicodin after tonsillitis surgery.

“Very quickly, it went from Vicodin to Percocet, from Percocet to … to heroin, eventually, because it was cheaper,” she said during a 2021 interview. “I got caught buying it, and then the very next day, my mom put me in rehab.”

She spent years in and out of rehab and in 2017 quit drinking; however, in 2021 confessed that she relapsed after four years of sobriety. The relapse was short-lived and Kelly quickly got "back on track."

"This is something I am going to battle for the rest of my life," she said at the time. "It’s never going to be easy."
