Kelly Osbourne has left E!'s Fashion Police, the network has confirmed.

"Kelly Osbourne is departing E!'s Fashion Police to pursue other opportunities, and 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," E! said in a statement. "Fashion Police will return, as scheduled, on Friday, March 30th at 9:00 p.m. and no decisions have been made on her replacement."

According to TMZ , who first reported the story, the co-host left the series on Friday.

Osbourne had been threatening to leave the series publicly since her co-host Giuliana Rancic received backlash earlier this week after commenting that young actor Zendaya's dreadlocks at the Oscars made it look like she smelled like "patchouli oil." Off-camera, a fellow co-host replied, "Or weed?" and many believed it to be Osbourne, who then spoke out online.
