Kelly Osbourne has branded Dannii Minogue ''the devil'' after she claimed her mother Sharon ruined her first night on 'The X Factor' and reduced her to tears
Kelly Osbourne has branded Dannii Minogue "the devil" over claims she was bullied by her mother Sharon. The outspoken TV star launched the tirade on twitter after Dannii's autobiography 'Dannii Minogue: My Story' claimed former judge Sharon had ruined her debut night on 'The X Factor'.
Dannii said she was reduced to tears after the opinionated mother-of-three burst into her dressing room just minutes before it started and "demanded" to know why she hadn't publicly defended newspaper reports about their backstage feuds.
Dannii wrote in her book: "The minute she left, I burst into tears. I'd managed to hold it together while Sharon had been there, but once she'd gone I couldn't hold it in, and I wept into my hands."
But Sharon's furious daughter Kelly branded the book "lies".
She tweeted: "The best thing to happen to Dannii's career was that my mother hated her. She needs to shut her mouth and concentrate on motherhood! I will be the first one to admit that my mother did not play her cards right when came to Dannii but trust me when I say Dannii is the devil."
Kelly then called her a "poor middle aged victim" and hinted she knew more about the feuds which infuriated show creator and judge Simon Cowell.
She added: "Dannii you are so lucky that I respect Simon enough to not tell the truth about what happened."
Sharon - who left the show in 2008 - is set to return to the pop star search show temporarily later this month when she helps her old friend Louis Walsh choose which members of his group will go through to the live finals.
