Remember back in junior high when you made up a boyfriend and said he lived in Canada? Was that you, or an episode of The Brady Bunch ? I can’t remember!

Earlier this year, singer/celebutante Kelly Osbourne and her then-fiance, model Luke Worrall, split up. The split was messy, with Kelly accusing Luke of cheating on her. Now, she has taken to her Twitter account to bash Luke and talk about what a bad guy he is.
