Oh dear. That Jack Osbourne is so lovely now that he finally got his act together and is off the drugs and is all squeaky clean & sober. Sadly, times have not always been so good for the kid. In his upcoming book Jack Osbourne: 21 Years Gone, good 'ol Jacky tells how during his time of addiction, the depression he suffered became so bad coupled with drugs and alcohol, that he once tried to kill himself. Jack, who was staying in a hotel room in New York at the time, said that he went over the edge one night after he called his then girlfriend and her ex-boyfriend answered the phone. He writes:
"That night I started cutting myself. I sliced up my hands with a broken bottle. I then reached for a bottle of absinthe that I had in my hotel room, mixed it with water and chugged as much as I could. "It wasn't easy to keep down, but eventually I knew I had drunk a hefty amount, so I looked around and found several bottles of pills: Soma, Xanax and Dilaudid, a pretty potent cocktail of prescription opiates. I helped myself to a handful, swallowed them and climbed into bed. I lay there, my hands bleeding and my head spinning, as I waited for death to take me." Luckily, Jack woke up in his bed 12 hours later and had the wit's to call his therapist. He added, "There was no small talk. I was weeping down the phone, 'I think I tried to kill myself last night.'"
Oh those Osbournes.
