Kelly Osbourne has checked back into rehab, her mother Sharon has confirmed.

The 24-year-old daughter of rocker Ozzy Osbourne is reported to be at the at the Hazelden retreat in Oregon.

Sharon told celebrity gossip blog radaronline.com in a tearful telephone conversation: “Yeah, Kelly’s in rehab.

“What else can we say? She knew that it was the right thing to do at this point and we’re proud that she did it. The family is all standing behind her. Kelly knew that she needed help and she’s getting it.”

Sharon, 56, refused to confirm Kelly’s location, except to say it was outside the Los Angeles area. She said her daughter would be there for at least the next 30 days, but would not reveal what she was being treated for.

Sharon said: “Kelly will tell you herself when she gets out. We just pray that everything’s going to be OK.”

Sharon said Kelly had been working steadily with her, Ozzy and brother Jack on their new variety TV show for Fox, Osbournes Reloaded, before going to rehab.

“She had been working right up until she went in”, said Sharon.

Kelly checked into Malibu’s Promises rehab facility in 2004 to be treated for an addiction to painkillers.

Sharon said: “This is one of the absolute worst things that a parent can face, for their child to go through rehab. And not once, but twice. However, we are all very glad Kelly’s doing it.”
