Kelly Osbourne Says She 'Didn't Know' Slipknot's Sid Wilson Liked Her for Years Before They Started Dating

After welcoming their first child together in 2022, Osbourne is opening up about the origin of romantic relationship with Wilson

Kelly Osbourne and Sid Wilson's romance was a slow burn.

After the pair went public with their relationship and welcomed their first child together in 2022, Osbourne opened up about how she came to start dating the Slipknot member during a new episode of The Osbournes podcast.

The pair's first encounter came when Slipknot toured in 1999 with Ozzfest, the music festival founded by her parents, Ozzy Osbourne and Sharon Osbourne.

"We first met when I was a kid, and I think we only saw ever each other as kids," said Kelly, 39. "We were just friends, because there was a seven-year age difference and back then, that was a huge, huge gap. I was 13 years old, and he was in his early 20s."

Kelly recalled Wilson, 47, and her brother Jack Osbourne having a stronger friendship at the time due to their ages. Sharon, 71, said Wilson was "very social" and spent more time with the Osbourne family throughout Ozzfest than any other members of the heavy metal band.

For years, Kelly and Wilson remained strictly friends. "I think it was 2013 — maybe a bit before that — I ran into Sid when he had his record shop on Melrose," she said. "And that’s when he decided that he liked me. I didn’t know this."

They chatted periodically from there, and then Wilson invited Kelly to one of Slipknot's concerts in Los Angeles about four years ago. "I went to the show, still had no idea that he liked me, and then we just started talking more and hanging out more, and it happened really naturally," she explained.

"It wasn't, like, forced. Because we had been friends for so long and known each other for so long, there was a sense of comfortability that I’ve never had with anyone else," added Kelly.

Sharon noted that someone else recently asked her how she felt about Kelly dating a musician, and she admitted it would've been more odd to see her with a "normie."

"I was never going to come home with anyone normal," quipped Kelly.

She and Wilson went public with their relationship in January 2022 and revealed they were expecting their first child four months later. The pair welcomed a baby boy, Sidney, later that year, as Sharon revealed during an appearance on The Talk in January 2023.

Last month, Kelly and Wilson walked their first red carpet together at the 2024 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles.
