Kelly Osbourne is opening up about her recent relapse, revealing she had a “nervous breakdown” during the coronavirus pandemic.

“I don't know why my nervous breakdown happened at the end of the lockdown, I made it all the way through, everything was great, and my life was perfect," she told Extra in a new interview. “I'm that girl that when everything is going great, I need to f**k it up a little and make everything a little bit worse in my life.”

Osbourne noted, “I got all of my career goals happening… and then I got happy cause I got this incredible boyfriend,” Erik Bragg, “and everything in my life is so great and I’m like I’m not an addict anymore… On top of that pandemic fever… It all just got too much.”

“I am an addict and had thought that I had enough time under my belt and I could drink like a normal person, and it turns out I cannot and I will never be normal," Osbourne explained. “I don't know why I even tried it. It's not for me and it took me a matter of days and I was like done, not doing this.”

Osbourne, 36, first revealed she was one-year sober in August 2018 and would have celebrated four years of sobriety this summer.

“This is something I am going to battle for the rest of my life,” she said of addiction. “It’s never going to be easy. Through being accountable and owning your own journey and sharing what you can go though you can help other people. That’s why I came clean, I could have sat here and nobody would know.”

As previously reported, the Project Runway Junior judge recently came clean about falling off the wagon. 

“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," she told her fans April 19 on social media. 

“I relapsed. Not proud of it,” she continued, noting that she's now “back on track.”

Osbourne also reminded herself that the road to recovery “truly is just one day at a time.”
