Kelly Osbourne found herself in the hospital on the same day her Fashion Police co-host, Joan Rivers, passed away.
The 29-year-old wound up in the hospital after trying to ignore a cough that had been plaguing her.
On Thursday, Osbourne shared a photo of herself in the hospital on Instagram just an hour before Rivers died, according to Yahoo Celebrity. Osbourne shared a picture of herself and wrote on her Instagram account, “When you have a cough go to the doctor or you will end up like me! #Pneumonia.”
Entertainment Wise reported that Kelly learned of Joan’s passing from her own hospital bed.
Kelly took to her Facebook page to speak about the loss of Joan and what the star meant to her on a personal level.
“I’m completely heartbroken by the loss of my beloved Joan. Not only was she my boss, she was and will always be my teacher, therapist, closest friend, inspiration and the only grandmother I ever knew. She was family and I will never forget her.”
Kelly Osbourne added that all she would have to do when she is “sad, lonely or upset” is to think of Rivers and a “smile will cross” her face. She said that Rivers gave people laughter and that is what Rivers would want in return.
Grieving the loss of her friend and colleague from her hospital bed, Kelly offered her condolences to Joan’s daughter and grandson and thanked Joan for her friendship on Facebook.
“Melissa and Cooper, my thoughts are with you and I love you both so much. Joan, thank you for taking me in and loving me as a daughter. I will miss you deeply and will always hear your voice in my head saying ‘my darling get out there and be you!'”
Kelly Osbourne met Joan Rivers as a small child and began working with her as a fashion correspondent on Fashion Police in 2011 where the two became close.
When Rivers went into cardiac arrest after a routine outpatient surgery on August 28, Osbourne said that she was “inconsolable”, according to Yahoo Celebrity.
“4 the first time in years I got down on my knees & prayed tonight! I encourage U 2 do the same 4 @Joan_Rivers my grandma! #inconsolable,” Kelly tweeted last Friday.
Kelly Osbourne is in support and has been tweeting about a petition circling around to make September 4 National Joan Rivers Day in honor of her late friend and colleague.
