Kelly Osbourne has opened up about a harrowing childhood incident where she was shot by her brother Jack and 'almost died'. The revelation came during the latest episode of their family podcast, The Osbournes, aired on April 23.

During the podcast, which also features their famous parents Sharon and Ozzy, Kelly shared that she "almost died" when Jack accidentally shot her with a pellet gun in their younger years. On the same day, Kelly posted a clip from the podcast on her Instagram, highlighting the "painful" event.

She humorously captioned the post: "Alright, confession time: I didn't see that pellet sneaking up on me, but you know what I can spot from a mile away? Podcast drops! ". In the podcast snippet, Kelly confronts Jack with "You shot me! " to which Jack admits, "I did shoot you."

Continuing the discussion, Kelly tells her mother Sharon, "And I almost died" Sharon, seeking clarity on the situation, asks about the type of gun involved, prompting Jack to clarify, "It was a pellet gun," and Sharon to acknowledge, "Right."

Kelly then describes the severity of her injury to her mother, saying, "Mum it went straight through my leg and out the other side. It was like someone putting a hot poker through my leg really fast,".

"But you can still kill someone with a pellet gun," Jack continued, explaining the dangers of the weapon to his mother after identifying it. Ozzy, who had been mostly silent until now, chimed in, asking, "Did it hurt? ".

"Dad, it felt like someone putting a hot poker through my leg really fast, but that wasn't what was painful about it," Kelly emphasised. "The most painful part...'".

"Your pride? " Jack interjected playfully, cutting off Kelly mid-sentence. "No f**k my pride," Kelly retorted. "It was this tiny hospital in the middle of nowhere England in the 90s.

"Their X-ray machine wasn't working so they got this long cue tip and wrapped it in gauze and dipped it in iodine and poked it through the hole to make sure there were no bits."

Kelly added. As she shared this detail, Jack grimaced empathetically, exclaiming "Nooo" and covering his face in discomfort.
