Singer-turned-reality TV star Kelly Osbourne is opening up about her broken engagement from fiance Matthew Mosshart, citing the split as a "mutual decision." The 29 year old announced she had broken off her relationship with the vegan chef on Wednesday (08Jan14), a year after accepting his proposal, and on Thursday (09Jan14), she spoke about the breakup.
She tells E! News, "It was a mutual decision. We love each other very much. It just wasn't the right time for us and I think if we weren't as mature and adult as we are, then we could have gone down a road that wasn't really nice."
"We're still really, really good friends. It's just that we're not living in the same house. There's no dramatic story. I wish there was so I had something to tell people, but no... It just happens in life."
Osbourne met the chef at Kate Moss' 2011 wedding - Mosshart's sister Alison is a bandmate of the British supermodel's husband, rocker Jamie Hince.
Osbourne was previously engaged to wed model Luke Worrall.
Rock matriarch and reality TV regular Sharon Osbourne is glad her daughter Kelly didn't rush down the aisle after becoming engaged to chef Matthew Mosshart last year (13) - because it was important for the couple to test their relationship first. The singer-turned-reality TV star announced she had broken off her relationship with the vegan chef on Wednesday (08Jan14), a year after accepting his proposal, and her mum is grateful her daughter isn't getting divorced.
Sharon insists the former couple will remain close after both parties realised they weren't ready for marriage.
Addressing the break-up news on her U.S. chat show The Talk on Thursday (09Jan14), Osbourne said, "I can't talk for my daughter (but) Matthew is a lovely guy. They had two great years together of fun and love and for me, that's why engagements are so important...
"They are a test run (for marriage), aren't they? And so it didn't work for whatever reason, but they are still good friends and will continue to be; it's just not right for them right now."
And she then made light of her daughter's dating life, adding, "Let the auditions begin!"
Kelly Osbourne, 29, met the chef at Kate Moss' 2011 wedding - Mosshart's sister Alison is a bandmate of the British supermodel's husband, rocker Jamie Hince.
She was previously engaged to wed model Luke Worrall.
Kelly Osbourne and chef Matthew Mosshart have ended their engagement a year after he proposed to the singer-turned-TV personality. A representative for Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne's daughter has confirmed the news in a statement to Us Weekly magazine, revealing the couple has also split.
She says, "The split is amicable and the pair continue to have nothing but the utmost respect for one another.
"Kelly is looking forward to a new year full of fresh beginnings. No further comments will be provided by all parties (sic) and we request privacy, decorum and space from the press but don't expect it."
The couple met at Kate Moss' 2011 wedding - Mosshart's sister Alison is a bandmate of the British model's husband Jamie Hince. Osbourne became engaged over New Year 12 months ago following a holiday proposal.
The 29 year old said, "I've never felt this close to another human being, ever... We just want to be together all the time."
She hinted that all was not well in her personal life in a tweet on 8 January (14), which read: "It's all about perception. Sometimes the bad things that happen in life aren't really bad at all especially when you learn something from it!"
Osbourne was previously engaged to wed model Luke Worrall.
Kelly Osbourne has confirmed she and long-term boyfriend Matthew Mosshart are engaged. The pop star-turned-TV personality has revealed the vegan pastry chef got down on one knee during a recent vacation in the Caribbean and asked her to be his bride.
Showing off her glittering engagement ring in a recent Hello! magazine photoshoot, Osbourne gushed, "I've never felt this close to another human being, ever. People say we're co-dependent but we just want to be together all the time."
The 28-year-old daughter of rocker Ozzy Osbourne also revealed her engagement ring holds particular sentimental value as it was designed to look like one of her father's jewellery items: "I designed it to look like an earring that my father wore. I used to hold my finger up to his ear when I was little and say, 'I want a ring like that'. Now I have one"
Osbourne met Mosshart at supermodel Kate Moss' 2011 wedding to rocker Jamie Hince, whose bandmate in rock act The Kills is the future groom's sister Alison Mosshart.
Rumours of an engagement first began swirling at Christmas (12), but Osbourne, who was previously engaged to model Luke Worrall, downplayed the reports, tweeting, "Don't believe everything you read".
Julianne Moore studied The Kills star Alison Mosshart to get in to the mindset of playing a rocker in new film What Maisie Knew. The Big Lebowski star fell in love with Mosshart's band, whose music features heavily throughout the movie, and decided she wanted to be just like her.
She tells WENN, "I talked to Alison because The Kills very kindly allowed us to use their songs. I emailed her and we had this sort of email relationship. She was great and she was so supportive and so enthusiastic.
"I also had a lot of support from our music supervisor. I watched some documentaries. I looked at a lot of Patty Smith stuff and some Courtney Love things. I kind of wanted to pick up some things that were attitudinal or gestural."
And Moore got to really feel like a rock star when she shot a music video for the movie: "It plays in the background on TV in one scene and that was actually shot after the film. I was already shooting another film because we didn't have time to do that video so we came back several months later to shoot that part."
Ozzy Osbourne's daughter is said to be "really excited" about heading down the aisle with vegan pastry chef Matthew Mosshart, the brother of The Kills rocker Alison Mosshart.
A source tells Us Weekly magazine, "Kelly is the happiest she's ever been. Her career is going well, and she's in a healthy relationship with a wonderful guy."
The couple first met at Kate Moss' wedding in July 2011 and has been dating for more than a year.
Osbourne was previously set to wed model Luke Worrall, but she broke off their engagement and dumped him in 2010 amid allegations of his infidelity.
Last month (Dec12), Kelly's mother Sharon predicted her daughter will one day marry Mosshart, insisting, "She's so happy she could get married tomorrow! Nothing surprises me with my daughter, she's not predictable. She's never been happier - you can always tell by her eyes. She's got really shiny eyes at the moment, so she's happy."
The British beauty married The Kills rocker last Friday (01Jul11) at a star-studded ceremony in the English village of Little Faringdon, Gloucestershire.
Photographer Terry Richardson was on hand to record the reception, and his snaps of the afterparty were subsequently posted on his online blog. The black-and-white pictures show the happy couple partying with pals including Jude Law and Marc Jacobs.
In one snap, Sir Paul McCartney is shown posing with his fiancee Nancy Shevell, while another picture shows Kelly Osbourne planting a kiss on the lips of Hince's bandmate Alison Mosshart.
The pictures also show rocker Jack White hugging his estranged wife Karen Elson, just weeks after they announced their six-year marriage had come to an end.
Other photographs appear to show Moss and Hince in a suite at London's Ritz Hotel after the wedding, with the model lying in bed, puffing on a cigarette. Another snap shows Hince with his arm around Moss as she lies topless on the bed, exposing her bare breasts.
Moss, wearing a rhinestone studded gown by John Galliano and Manolo Blahnik shoes, tied the knot with The Kills frontman at 12th century St. Peter's Church in Little Faringdon, Gloucestershire - near the home the couple shares.
A number of special guests were in attendance at the ceremony on Friday (01Jul11) - Moss' daughter Lila, eight, was a member of the 15-strong bridal party, and stars Kelly Osbourne, Rhys Ifans and Sadie Frost were there to show their support.
The bride arrived at the church in a silver Rolls Royce, accompanied by her daughter, dad Peter and photographer Mario Testino.
Hince's bandmate Alison Mosshart served as the groom's bestwoman.
The newlyweds and their wedding party are set to mark the nuptials with a three-day celebration at their country home over the weekend (01-03Jul11).
According to the U.K.'s Daily Mail newspaper, the after-party will include musical performances by rap stars Snoop Dogg and Kanye West.
Tweeting from the post-wedding party, Osbourne writes, "This is the most beautiful, loving, amazing wedding I have ever been to. it's magical when you see people really in love!"
Moss and Hince announced their engagement in February (11).
The couple is set to tie the knot at a 12th century church near their home in the rural region of the Cotswolds in west England, and the area was invaded by celebrities ahead of the three-day celebration this weekend (01-03Jul11).
Moss and Hince's guest list reportedly includes Welsh star Ifans, artist Tracey Emin, fashion designer Stella McCartney, and Hince's The Kills bandmate Alison Mosshart.
After the nuptials, the wedding party will head to the couple's sprawling country estate where several marquees have been erected in the grounds for a star-studded reception.
Twilight’s contentious “Edward vs. Jacob” debate was finally settled at the close of 2009‘s New Moon the second episode of Stephenie Meyers’ supernatural teen harlequin saga when plaintive emo hottie Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) definitively rejected the advances of Taylor Lautner’s musclebound man-wolf in favor of Robert Pattinson’s brooding vampire.
Or so we thought. Twilight’s fateful love triangle is revived in earnest by Eclipse part three of the series and this time the implications are serious -- relatively speaking of course. Taking over the helm from New Moon director Chris Weitz is David Slade (30 Days of Night Hard Candy) who adds a hefty dose of action to Twilight’s trademark mix of soaring romance and manic melodrama making Eclipse the first film in the saga in which -- get this -- something actually happens.
Indeed action is a primary theme of Eclipse. Like most high school seniors Bella wants some; her pasty paramour Edward Cullen however remains stubbornly chaste and not just because the briefest exposure to his unbridled vampire lust would almost certainly kill his all-too-human sweetheart. You see chivalrous Edward hails “from a different era ” one in which the institution of marriage meant everything and a man took care to mount a proper courtship before marrying a girl nearly a century his junior. (He’s 109 years old.) He asks her to marry him; she agrees but only if he’ll turn her into a vampire first; he hesitates pondering the unalterable consequences; the matter is tabled and heavy petting resumes. (This exchange is repeated ad nauseam throughout the remainder of the film.)
The constant fawning and unwavering devotion from impossibly beautiful Edward aren’t enough to sate Bella’s thirst -- she needs validation like a vampire needs blood -- and so she uses the flimsiest of pretexts to re-insert herself into the life of Jacob Black the sensitive werewolf she previously shunned who dutifully plies her with his own declarations of undying love. (Jacob to his credit has developed enough game since we last saw him to qualify as a serious contender for Bella’s affections and is no longer the devoted doormat we saw in New Moon. He’s still a tool though.) Game on.
But Edward and Jacob aren’t the only ones with designs on Bella. (Seriously are there no other hot emo chicks in the greater Pacific Northwest?) A ginger-haired menace (Bryce Dallas Howard) has emerged one that will require Edward’s vampire clan and Jacob’s wolfpack tribe longtime enemies forever on the verge of a climactic battle (in which Bella will serve as the jeans-and-hoodie-clad Helen of Troy no doubt) to put aside their differences and unite against a common enemy. In order to ensure Bella’s safety Edward and Jacob must form an uneasy tag-team (no not that kind of tag team much as it would likely better serve to resolve matters) to keep Bella safe from harm.
With its amped-up action sharpened wit and darker horror flick-inspired atmospherics Eclipse boasts the broadest appeal of all the Twilight films thus far. But that doesn’t mean it’s good. Director Slade’s grasp of plot development borders on amateurish in this film; Eclipse often feels less like a movie than a weighty discourse on the pros and cons of vampiredom laid out in lengthy exhaustingly repetitive chunks of exposition and awkward campy flashbacks as just about every character in the film including Edward attempts to dissuade Bella from joining the ranks of the bloodsuckers.
But alas no force no matter how utterly rational its arguments will keep Bella from her destiny. Which obviously is Edward. Or is it? Eclipse goes to great pains to invent ways to perpetuate the film’s romantic rivalry inserting scenes like the one in which Bella on the verge of freezing to death in a tent high up in the mountains is saved when Jacob arrives to heroically spoon her body temperature back to its proper level. (Eclipse is being hyped as the first “guy-friendly” Twilight flick but no film which includes a climactic spooning scene can rightly claim such a distinction.) Edward meanwhile with his poor vampire circulation is powerless to help.
Who will win in the end? Will it be abs over eyes? Obviously it will take two more movies (at least!) to solve this kind of wrenching dilemma.
