Kelly Osbourne was rushed to the hospital Monday night after suffering an injury to her foot while performing on Dancing With the Stars. Osbourne was nearing the end of her routine with partner Louis van Amstel when her shoe buckle reportedly “slammed into her foot.”
“At the end of our paso doble Kelly banged her foot on the floor which may have caused an injury,” Louis van Amstel said last night after the show. “She is at the hospital right now to take an X-ray and an MRI to make sure she will be OK to dance. Kelly will keep me updated on her prognosis.”
Osbourne managed to struggle through the pain of her injury long enough to dance the final number of the night – barefoot. Shortly afterward, Osbourne was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, accompanied by her father, Ozzy Osbourne.
This season of Dancing With the Stars has been plagued by injuries. Two weeks ago, former Republican congressman Tom DeLay was forced to drop out of the competition due to the pain and limitations caused by dealing with two stress fractures.
Kelly Osbourne allegedly broke down in tears before taking to the stage for the premiere of Dancing with the Stars this week. The daughter of rocker Ozzy Osbourne and America’s Got Talent judge Sharon Osbourne reportedly had a serious bout of anxiety before her firstÂ appearance on the show – but that’s not what made her cry.
According to a report from PerezHilton.com, Kelly Osbourne was feeling quite anxious aboutÂ the premiere week of Dancing with the Stars. Wanting a bit of comfort, she contacted her mom Sharon and asked her to come backstage. Sharon, however, was turned away because she reportedly didn’t have the proper credentials to get in. Sharon and Kelly reportedly were angry as hell and poor Kelly broke down in tears right before the show started.
Kelly told Britain’s Closer magazine she’s “never been so terrified about anything in my life and am praying I don’t get voted out first. If that happens I’ll probably cry for a month! I’d feel so unloved.”
Singer Mya, meanwhile, fell prey to the Dancing with the Stars injury curse just a day before she was due to make her debut on the premiere week of the series. Mya posted on her Twitter feed that she had to go to the hospital for stitches after slashing her hand open on some broken glass. Luckily, Mya was still able toÂ continue on with the showÂ despite her injury.
