Kelly Osbourne may have epilepsy

Kelly osbourneThe ‘Fashion Police’ host – who was rushed to Cedars Sinai hospital in Los Angeles after suffering a 30 second seizure on the set of the E! series earlier this week – has been warned by doctors that the dramatic health scare could be much more serious than they initially suspected.

A source told gossip website TMZ.com that Osbourne’s medical team are running tests and she will remain in hospital for at least a few more days while they try to determine what caused the sudden seizure.

The insider said she is currently on anti-seizure medication and doctors are closely monitoring her as they believe the seizure was extremely serious.

The 28-year-old star took to her Twitter account to show her appreciation for all the “beautiful well wishes” she received following the frightening incident, which saw her rushed to hospital after she had a seizure while filming alongside Joan and Melissa Rivers.

Osbourne posted a picture of herself in hospital and wrote: “Thank U all 4 UR beautiful well wishes yes I did have a seizure they are just trying to figure out why? (sic)”

A medical emergency worker who was in the audience rushed to help her, and she was later shielded with blankets as she was stretchered into the ambulance.

Kelly – the daughter of Black Sabbath rocker Ozzy Osbourne and TV presenter Sharon Osbourne – is said to have turned to her co-host to say she didn’t feel well before falling out of her chair shaking.

Sharon Osbourne also expressed her gratitude to well wishers on Twitter, writing: “I want to thank everyone for their concern about @MissKellyO. She’s doing fine she’s at Cedars and is surrounded by the best doctors and love.”

  1. That was the first thing I thought when I heard of her seizure. I hope, for her sake, it’s not epilepsy. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone, not even my worst enemy.

  2. ^ couldnt agree more! especially uncontrolled seizures and some med side effects 🙁

  3. Her situation is very similar to mine. I was 23, while at work I get up for a cup of water & next thing I know am waking up in the ER being told I had a grand mal seizure… Low & behold after series of tests I find out I have a seizure disorder… I really hope this isn’t her case but maybe she can raise awareness & education if so

  4. I couldn’t agree more. I have had seizures since I was under a year old and it is a nightmare! Never knowing if your gonna have one that day or not, never knowing how people are going to see you as an epileptic, or even losing out on a lot of things such as a drivers license and roller coasters just because you have epilepsy. If she is diagnosed with it, I guarantee you they are not going to let her drive, and it sucks because she is such an independent woman and to not be able to get around on her own, and live a normal life is going to suck a lot. I feel for her and I hope and pray that she isn’t diagnosed with epilepsy because like the other person said, I wouldn’t ever imagine wishing something this horrid on anyone else. There are ways to control but that took me 17 years after being diagnosed to master so it isn’t exactly a walk in the park. If anyone wants to know how to learn to control your seizures, let me know and I will tell you! Good luck Kelly you are in mine and my family’s prayers.

  5. Don’t worry- even if it is epilepsy, it’s not the end of the world. When I got diagnosed I thought it was. No party lights, no blazer lazer tag, no concerts, but still- had I not been diagnosed I never would have met some of the people I know today. Epilepsy may have erased some things from my life, but it brought me knowledge, friends, experiences and opportunities.
    Best wishes Kelly,
    Remember: We’re not epileptic, we are who we were yesterday and the day before, we just have epilepsy.
