Booze bodyguard for Kelly Osbourne
16:30 29 March 2005
Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne have hired a personal bodyguard for daughter Kelly - to stop her drinking.
The worried couple, who shot to fame on MTV show 'The Osbournes', have employed an 'alcohol counsellor' to accompany Kelly to concerts and events to stop her from getting drunk.
The 20-year-old star, whose wild rocker father battled alcohol and drug addiction for years, became addicted to painkillers and alcohol last year and was sent to rehab by mum Sharon.
Last month Kelly, who is currently starring in TV teen drama 'Life As We Know It', revealed how she hid her drug addiction from Sharon - despite regularly throwing up blood.
She said at the time: "I didn't like cocaine or speed so opiates became my drug of choice. The last four months before I went into rehab I was throwing up blood and trying to hide it because I didn't want my mum to know. I'd wake up covered in blood."
