Kelly Osbourne has become friends with the pre-op transsexual who had an affair with her ex-fiance.

The TV star was left devastated after discovering model Luke Worrall had cheated on her with Elle Schneider - who was born Reynaldo Gonzalez - while they were still together.

Kelly made the discovery on Luke's twitter page in December 2010, but rather than blame Elle the two have bonded over their heartbreak.

Every time we talk on the phone, it will be for 40 minutes to an hour

Elle said: "I spoke to Kelly about two days ago. Every time we talk on the phone, it will be for 40 minutes to an hour ... Kelly contacted me on 25 December - she had read Luke's private messages to me on his twitter page and wanted to let me know he had been lying to me, just like he had lied to her."

The 21-year-old gender bender - who is undergoing hormone treatment and has had breast implants - first met Luke at a New York nightclub in late 2009 and later that night he joined her at the hotel she was staying at and they had sex.

Elle insists Luke was not bothered when she told him she was a transsexual and actually seemed more interested in her because of it.

She told Reveal magazine: "I was open with Luke, I told him I was born a boy. He didn't mind - in fact it turned him on more. He told me I was beautiful. It was only when I took my clothes off that hew saw I had a penis. He wasn't fazed by it - he was very complimentary."

After Kelly contacted Elle in December 2010 she decided she no longer wanted to be involved with Luke romantically and insists she now feels nothing but disgust for him.

She said: "From the moment I met him he was telling me he loved me and wanted us to get married. At the same time he was professing his love to me, he was doing the same to Kelly. I think the way he has treated her is terrible. The way Luke lives his life is completely toxic."

Just a few days after her discovery, Kelly - who split from the catwalk heartthrob in July 2010 - launched a tirade against Luke on her twitter page.

Kelly tweeted: "@Luke_worrall is the biggest piece of s**t he has been trying to get back w/ me I only came home for Xmas to see him meanwhile he has been f***ing 100's of girls as well as men behind my back all he did was use me all girls beware of @Luke_worral he is a using ****! He used me for my money and a free ride he is lucky I am not spilling the hole truth about what he did ! (sic)"
