Kelly Osbourne Quits Fashion Police

Kelly Osbourne
Kelly Osbourne has left her beloved job presenting American show Fashion Police after five years. 
The Brit star is said to be "furious" over "racist" comments made to actress and singer Zendaya because of her dreadlocked hair.

On Monday night's show, Guiliana Rancic, who stars alongside Kelly, 30, on the show, said of her locks on the Oscars red carpet: "Like I feel like she, she smells like patchouli oil. Or weed. Yeah, maybe weed."
Rancic, 39, apologised live on E! on Tuesday.
But, Kelly was left horrified, and immediately tweeted saying she was "seriously 
And on Friday, she made the decision to leave. Nobody was more supportive than her TV star mum Sharon, who said: "@Kellyosbourne, I am so proud of you. You can never be bought. You always wear your heart on your sleeve #proudtobeyourmum."
A source close to Kelly says she had an agonising few days since Guiliana's criticism of her friend Zendaya but eventually decided she had to depart.
"Kelly is a woman of principles," said the friend. "She was upset and horrified that someone would say something like that.
"She is an intelligent, bright woman with priniciples. Those principles were at the heart of her wanting to leave."
Khloe Karshashian, 31, is hotly tipped to replace Kelly, though no decision has been made.
A spokesperson for the E! network said: "Kelly Osbourne is departing E!'s Fashion Police to pursue other opportunities, ad we would like to thank her for her many contributions to the series over the past five years, during which time the show became a hit with viewers."
