17-year-old Jack Osbourne, star of The Osbournes and music promoter, has been in rehab since last Wednesday and is currently in detox. He checked himself into Las Encinas Hospital, a facility that “specializes in drug addiction and psychiatric care,” according to MTV. The Sun has published photographs of Jack checking in with his family at his side. Jack says he “got caught up in my new lifestyle and got carried away with drugs and alcohol,” according to an AP story. In the story Kelly says Jack is “doing very well and we’re all very proud of him. He’s in really good spirits,” and Ozzy, no stranger to drugs or alcohol, adds that “[i]t takes a lot of courage and strength to admit you need help, and both Sharon and I are proud Jack is facing his problems head-on.”
