Pop singer Kelly Osbourne is dealing with a range of controversial issues including drug abuse, rehab, heartbreak and date rape on her upcoming second album.

The reality TV star has been working for former 4 NON BLONDES star LINDA PERRY, who co-wrote a string of hits for pop punk Pink, on new disc SLEEPING IN THE NOTHING - and fans can expect a more electronic sound.

A source at SANCTUARY RECORDS tells British tabloid the DAILY STAR, "Kelly hasn't been afraid to talk on her record about her drug taking and her experiences in rehab.

"She's been through some tough times but hopes by discussing them she can help anyone going through the same thing."
