Marie Osmond’s Son Commits Suicide

Marie Osmond's Son Commits Suicide

Tragic news to report out of Hollywood today. Marie Osmond‘s son Michael Blosil committed suicide on Friday night (February 27) in Los Angeles, ET reports. Contacted by phone this morning, Marie’s brother Donny Osmond says, “Please pray for my sister and her family.”

Michael, who was 18 and is one of Marie’s eight children, died after jumping from his downtown Los Angeles apartment at about 9 p.m. last night. He left a suicide note addressing his life-long battle with severe depression that left him, he said, feeling as if he had no friends and could never fit in.

“My family and I are devastated and in deep shock by the tragic loss of our dear Michael and ask that everyone respect our privacy during this difficult time,” Marie says.

Marie and ex-husband Brian Blosil adopted Michael in 1991.

Our deepest condolences go out to the Osmond-Blosil family.

    Who gives a crap. He was a nobody. I’m feeling depressed too, can I get on the front page of TMZ?

      If I was a heartless bastard like you, I’d be depressed, too. It seems to me you are the nobody.

    How rude, she just lost her son you are so inconsiderate not to mention you clearly have NO sympathy for another human being.

    depression is an illness, not a choice or some imaginary concept….

      Depression runs in the family too. My cousin and I suffer from the same mental disorder, S.A.D. It got so bad for my cousin that she had to drop out of school and apply to a college closer to home, while I had to be home schooled for the last three years of High School.

    So sad. May he find the peace in death he obviously couldn’t in life.

      In the same respect, no one cares about your comments!

    Why the need to point out his adoption? He was her son, plain and simple.

    Anonymous I agree it does not matter if he was adopted he was still her son
    my heart goes out to her

    This is why celebs should not adopt children. That child clearly felt alone and neglected while her mother was busy performing away in Las Vegas. You have 8 kids, some of whom are adopted, please stay home and raise them.


    • Kelly

      You have no idea why he chose to end his life. I’m betting it had absolutely nothing to do with being adopted and/or his mother. Don’t you think Marie is going through enough without having mindless individuals make comments about her supposed lack of parenting?

      Last year, my brother committed suicide. My parents are divorced but he had a close relationship with the both of them. They loved and supported him immensely and were devastated, as well all were, over his passing.

      But let me tell you, playing the blame game, especially in a situation you are completely unfamiliar with, will get you nowhere.

    Hey Anon1 – he lived with Marie in Vegas – so SHE was home with him. Not sure if you always judge before you know the facts.
