After so much speculation and reports as to what really instigated Kelly Osbourne’s leaving the E! network, there is a new twist.
Kelly Osbourne reportedly quit Fashion Police because of how E! ‘handled’ the row over Giuliana Rancic’s comments towards Zendaya Coleman.
The 30-year-old star announced her departure from the E! show just days after her co-host apologised for making an offensive remark about her friend’s dreadlocks at the Oscars.
But it has been claimed it wasn’t the presenter’s comments – that her pal looked like she ‘smelled of patchouli oil and weed’ – that triggered her decision.
According to MailOnline, a source said: ‘Kelly left not from the [comment] itself, but because of how Giuliana and the network handled it.’
It had been claimed the comments had been rehearsed three times, with Kelly warning her co-hosts they shouldn’t be used – but E! later denied they had been included in anything other than the final taping, something the outspoken star is said to be particularly furious about.
A source previously said of the show recording: ‘They did the Zendaya segment three times.
‘Three different takes. On the first two takes, Kelly said, “Guys, we can’t say this. Zendaya is a friend of the show.”‘
A spokesperson for Kelly Osbourne and E! has been contacted for a comment.
Following the news of her departure, Khloe Kardashian, Nene Leakes and Kristin Cavallari have all been touted as possible replacements.
However, a show spokesperson said: ‘No decisions have been made.’
