Kelly Osbourne will not be getting ”Freaky” in a Disney movie anytime soon. The foul-mouthed punk princess has dropped out of her supporting role in the studio’s ”Freaky Friday” remake, citing ”personal reasons,” according to the Hollywood Reporter. Those reasons were undisclosed, but maybe the 17-year-old wanted to spend more time with her ailing mom, Sharon, who’s currently undergoing chemotherapy treatment for colon cancer. Plus, Kelly has an album due out next month that she’s committed to promoting, and there’s another season of the family’s MTV reality hit, ”The Osbournes” that’s currently shooting.

Osbourne, who made her film acting debut this summer in a cameo as herself in ”Austin Powers in Goldmember,” would have had her first major film role in ”Friday” as an aspiring singer and best friend to Annabel (”The Parent Trap”’s Lindsay Lohan), the main character, who magically switches bodies with her mother (Annette Bening) for one day. She’ll be replaced by Christina Vidal, star of Nickolodeon’s ”Taina,” who had already been cast in a supporting role in the movie.
