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.
