    Default Marie Osmond's son commits suicide

    Marie Osmond's son Michael died Friday in Los Angeles after leaping to his death from his apartment.

    Michael had struggled with depression in the past and in 2007, at age 16, he went to rehab.

    In March 2009 Marie gave an interview to People magazine saying he was out of rehab and better,

    "Those kinds of things are really very hard for a teenager to deal with," she tells PEOPLE. "And if he ever wants to talk about it ... he will, but it has to be their choice. It's not my choice."

    Now out of rehab, Michael Blosil is finishing up his last year of high school while living with his mom in Las Vegas (where she and brother Donny headline in a show at the Flamingo). "I couldn't be more proud of him," says Osmond. "He's got a 3.9 GPA in high school. He's looking at scholarships to some wonderful colleges."

    Marie and her husband Brian Blosil split in 2007 after 20 years of marriage and eight kids, five of whom (including Michael) were adopted.

    Entertainment Tonight broke the news of his death with the following:
    Osmond family members have notified ET that Marie Osmond's son Michael Blosil leapt to his death Friday night in Los Angeles. Contacted by phone this morning, Donny Osmond tells us: "Please pray for my sister and her family."
    Here are the details: Michael, who was in his late teens and is one of Marie's eight children, died after jumping from his downtown Los Angeles apartment at about 9 p.m. on Friday night. He left a note explaining he intended to commit suicide due to his life-long battle with severe depression that left him, he said, feeling as if he had no friends and could never fit in.

    Story continues below



    We're told that his mother Marie, who helped him fight the condition throughout his life, is devastated by the loss. Donny and Marie's Las Vegas show has been cancelled tonight.
    Marie was hospitalized in 2006 for what the National Enquirer called a suicide attempt of her own, a claim she denied.

    How sad, that poor family.
    What's with the extended family rushing to notify ET? Show some respect for the parents and the boy's siblings.

    Sun in Pisces. Of course in this case there was also a family history of depression.

    I am sure he had the best doctors, but I am begining there are some types of depression(possibly genetic) that can't be reached yet. Some would find that kind of toture unbearable. They are not getting the help they need early enough-because it is not there yet. More research.
    She will have a hard time with this-what Mother wouldn't. Her other children will help. This is so terrible.

    Marie Osmond has admitted in interviews that she has suffered from depression for years and was suicidal after her divorce.

    Are you saying you can "catch" clinical depression from an adoptive parent?

    Wow. Just wow. What a way to end one's life. And so young.
    R.I.P. and thoughts and prayers for those left behind.
