Kelly Osbourne: “I Did Not Take Ozempic”

Clearing Up the Ozempic Speculation

Kelly Osbourne has addressed rumors about her weight loss, firmly denying that she used Ozempic to achieve her 85-pound weight reduction. Her impressive transformation came after the birth of her son.

“I know everybody thinks I took Ozempic,” Osbourne told Extra. “I did not take Ozempic. I don’t know where that came from. My mom (Sharon Osbourne) took Ozempic.”

Weight Loss Journey After Pregnancy

At 39, the DWTS alum shared details of her weight loss journey that began after the birth of her son, Sidney, in 2022, with Slipknot DJ Sid Wilson. “I had gestational diabetes and I had to lose the weight that I had gained during pregnancy,” Osbourne explained. “Otherwise I was at a higher risk of actually getting diabetes, which I did not want. I cut out sugar and carbohydrates and I rapidly lost weight.”

Previous Praise for Ozempic

Earlier this year, Osbourne had spoken highly of Ozempic for its weight loss benefits. “I think it’s amazing,” she told E! News. “There are a million ways to lose weight, why not do it through something that isn’t as boring as working out?”

She also addressed the criticism surrounding Ozempic, suggesting that much of the negativity comes from those who cannot afford the medication. “People hate on it because they want to do it and the people who hate on it the most are the people who are secretly doing it or pissed off that they can’t afford it. Unfortunately, right now it’s something that is very expensive, but it eventually won’t be because it actually works,” she said.

Sharon Osbourne’s Experience with Ozempic

Kelly’s mother, Sharon Osbourne, has shared her own experience with Ozempic, revealing that she stopped using the drug due to excessive weight loss. “I’ve lost 42 pounds and I can’t afford to lose any more,” she told the Daily Mail. “I’m too gaunt and I can’t put any weight on. I want to, because I feel I’m too skinny.”
