Kelly Osbourne at the Oscars (Twitter)
Hours after collapsing on the set of E!’s “Fashion Police,” the 28-year-old took to Twitter to update her nearly 3 million followers on her medical condition.
“Thank U all 4 UR beautiful well wishes,” she wrote on Thursday night. “Yes I did have a seizure they are just trying to figure out why?”
A photo she posted showed her tattooed arm with an IV drip in it.
Kelly was filming her weekly style show in front of a studio audience in Los Angeles when she became ill and was brought by ambulance to the hospital.
Melissa Rivers, who was filling in for a vacationing Giuliana Rancic on “Fashion Police,” helped Kelly during the seizure by keeping her head to the side – and later by comforting her.
“I just laid on the ground with her until we got the seizure to stop,” Rivers told “Entertainment Tonight” on Friday. “She was disoriented and … kept trying to stand up. I made her look at me. I said, ‘I’m here. Stay with me. It’s all fine.’ I explained where we were. More than anything it was just scary. I just [held] on to her until the paramedics came.”
A network rep released a statement to omg! on Thursday afternoon explaining that Kelly had fainted and was hospitalized, noting, "She will be staying overnight for observation as a precautionary measure.” However, there was no mention of her having a seizure – though rumors were swirling on the Internet.

Kelly’s mother, Sharon, hasn’t mentioned the incident on Twitter – nor has brother, Jack. However, the family has had a stressful year with regards to illness – Jack, 27, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis last spring. He has since been very vocal about living with the disease, adopting the motto “adapt and overcome,” which he often tweets.
Sharon, 60, successfully battled colon cancer a decade ago.
Just two weeks ago, Kelly sought medical treatment when she became injured after taking a tumble in a bathroom. She sprained her ankle and had her leg in a brace. However, days later she was back to normal as she hit the red carpet to cover the Oscars for E!.
