Dannii Minogue: I don't want to get into a slanging match with Kelly Osbourne
'I will be the first one to admit that my mother did not play her cards right when (it) came to Dannii but trust me when I say Dannii is the devil,' Kelly Tweeted.
In her autobiography, Dannii recalls how 57-year-old Sharon burst into her dressing room on her 36th birthday - the night of her first X Factor live show in 2007 - and berated her.
Despite Kelly's accusation, the Aussie singer, now 38, is standing by her account.
'I just put what happened in the book I don't want to get into the back and forth with this,' she tells X Magazine. 'I know what's true.
'They're strong accusations. I'm not a liar - if [Kelly] is calling me a
liar, she's calling everyone who was there a liar. The producers and
everyone. There were a lot of witnesses
'I don't want to get into some kind of slanging match with anyone.
You can't change anyone's opinion of you. If someone doesn't like me,
I've always just stayed out of their way.'
