Kelly Osbourne

Sues Landlord

I'm NOT A Pig!

Kelly Osbourne is suing her former landlord, and it's not just for a lot of money.  She's also defending her honor that she's not a filthy slob.

In the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ ... Kelly says she rented a fancy apartment in West Hollywood, which has been home to many a celeb, including Lindsay Lohan, Adam Lambert and Brody Jenner

Kelly plunked down $18,700 as a security deposit before moving in.  When she moved out, she claims the landlord never bothered to stop by to check out the unit, but shortly thereafter Kelly got bad news -- the landlord sent her an email notifying her of an estimate of damages.  According to the landlord, the damage and cleaning expenses ate up her entire deposit so Kelly was informed she'd be getting zilch.

Kelly is suing for her deposit back, and under California law if the landlord wrongly retained the deposit she gets up to twice the amount.  She also apparently thinks the landlord is an a-hole, because she wants punitive damages to teach the landlord a lesson.

I can't imagine what it must have smelled like in there after that thing parked her stinky ass there. Probably garbage and feces all over the place. Have to re paint and re floor entire apartment to cover the stink. She is luck only costing her 18k!

I'm calling bs on this story for two reasons: 1. Photos or it didn't happen. 2. Any comparison between Kelly Osbourne and pigs is an insult to pigs.

Go, Kelly! I sued my landlord and won. Some landlords think they can get away with this kind of thing because people won't fight them in court. They would save everyone time and aggravation by just doing the right thing. God forbid.

The landlord's just looking for a scapegoat. After Linds, you can never get rid of the urine and dead clam odors. Might as well torch the building and start over.

Snort.It's possible the landlord needs a lobotomy or maybe she's just crafty. Lohan, Osbourne, etc??...she's really renting to the cream of the crop. LMAO She should strip the place down to bare bones, make it into a sty and rent away. Here, piggies, piggies.

Kelly did you ever watch yourself on your reality show? In case you were wondering you were the dirtiest Osborne Pig of the Bunch.

She looks like a pig, figures she's be one. Not that pigs aren't tidy. She strikes me as a Very spoiled girl who throws things on the floor for others and thinks she is above it all. She is scary, her manner is weird

It's common in that area. I had a friend renting in WeHo who was immaculate and she was charged for bogus damages. She had to leave the state for a job and couldn't contest it in court.

Landlords do not like to give back the security deposit. MANY years ago, I rented an apartment. They made up all kinds of things to not give back my security deposit. My husband got a lawyer(more for the principle) and we had them go after the apartment complex. We got our deposit back and they were not happy! Good luck

Blood and feces speared on the wall. A few crusty thongs in the kitchen sink. A dead cat in the freezer.
