Kelly Osbourne arrested for slapping columnist
The Juice* will have to be careful around Kelly Osbourne, who was arrested this month for slapping a gossip columnist for calling her fiance stupid, Showbiz Spy reports. The catch is, she did it back in August 2008, which proves the Brits may be even more lenient to their celebs than the L.A. County Sheriffs Dept.
Writer Zoe Griffin allegedly was taunting and insulting the 24-year-old and her man Luke Worrall at London club Punk when Osbourne went buckwiled and gave her the open handed how-do-you-do. (That would never happen to The Juice*, since we're all lonely, nerdy and relatively anonymous.) She surrendered at a cop shop with her lawyers in tow over the incident.
"We can confirm a 24-year-old woman attended a central London police by appointment on Jan. 2," a police spokesperson said in a statement. "She was arrested for common assault relating to an alleged incident in Soho in the early hours of Aug. 29."
Osbourne was released on bail until March, which means we'd better mind our Ps and Qs until she's tried.
