(Newser) – If Amy Winehouse wanted peace and quiet after her rehab stint, she may have miscalculated. The troubled diva will move into a guest cottage at the Osbournes' mansion, home to the famously quirky Black Sabbath rocker and his reality-TV-star family, the Daily Mirror reports. Kelly Osbourne is well qualified to help her troubled friend, says a source: "She has been there before with her dad."

Kelly Osbourne helped pack Winehouse's belongings when she went into rehab and "has always been there for Amy, they are very tight," says the source. Hopes are high that the remoteness of location, deep in the English countryside, and security at the Osbourne compound will keep Winehouse in and temptation out.
