    Exclamation Unauthorized bio claims Marie Osmand attempted suicide as a child

    A shocking new biography claims Marie Osmond suffered mental illness as a child and attempted suicide. Randy Jernigan's expose also alleges Osmond lied about being abused as a child; suffered an eating disorder as a teen; lost her virginity at the age of 17 to late singer Andy Gibb; and split from her basketball player ex-husband Stephen Craig when she caught him naked in a hot tub with her personal assistant.

    Jernigan's Marie Osmond: An Unauthorized Biography - out this summer - alleges Osmond made up the child abuse claims after editors asked her to "juice up" her 2001 autobiography.

    He tells Star magazine, "It wasn't true. She made it up, according to a lot of people I have spoken to. To this day, Marie has never explained what the actual abuse was."

    Osmond's spokeswoman failed to respond to WENN's enquiries.

    Being so nice and cutesy perfect for so long has to do a number on one's psyche. Guess this would explain the creepy dolls even though I truly empathize with her for feeling so empty that she wanted to end it all. I admire her for being brave enough to pucblicly admit that having it all does not make one happy. Wish her all the best.

    I'm pretty sure she mentioned or implied that she was molested. Don't remember the details.

    I honestly don't think she'd lie about it. If she was sad enough to want to end her life, something awful must've been going on.

    If she tried to commit suicide as a child, then something happened in her childhood. Maybe it's painful for her to go into details.

    And it's probably exhausting keeping up a cheerful persona 24/7.

    She lost her virginity to Andy Gibb? He died from myocarditis (inflammation of the heart) followed a long battle with cocaine addiction, which had weakened his heart. I totally loved him in high school.
    Sheeesh, he was a cutiepie indeed.

    Edit to change cause of death...I thought he committed suicide.

    No, myocarditis did Andy in. He had a lot of stuff going against him,
    as far as heart problems are concerned. Several Gibb men (father
    Hugh, Barry, Andy and Barry's son Ashley) have congenital heart
    problems (Ashley is the only one that was diagnosed at birth,
    all the others found out - much - later in life). Andy didn't know
    he had heart problems. Then he became addicted to coke, which
    is a known cause for heart damage. He overcame his addiction
    but, like many addicts, was always on the edge of falling back,
    be it to coke or alcohol. He celebrated his 30th birthday quietly
    with his mom at Robin's estate in Oxforshire on March 5, 1988.
    Five days later he was dead after having been hospitalized with
    severe stomach aches. Just seconds after the doctors told him
    they were going to run some tests on him and he'd answered
    "Okay", he lost consciousness and died with his mom in the room!

    Children can suffer from depression, and if it's severe depression, that is enough to make someone have thoughts of suicide. There doesn't necessarily have to be anything bad going on in the person's life.

    The thing about abuse is it seems to be a catch-all these days. "Oh, I'll just say I was abused [even if I wasn't] and that will excuse everything." I hate that! The story implies a mental illness, so it's possible she did just make it up.

    Lookie ... my first multi-quote!!!

    I'd be interested to know who allegedly molested her, if in fact that happened. Her father, Donny, another brother, a family friend, a stranger?

    Not making any accusations here, but Donny and Marie always gave me an ubercreepy brother/sister vibe, just like Karen and Richard Carpenter did.

    Marie Osmond freaks me out entirely, she's one of those people I just don't know what to think about her.
    I smile because I have no idea what's going on

    I think it's mostly for the show, like they're supposed to represent this close family/sibling tie and how happy they are. I have a feeling their family doesn't get along all that well behind closed doors but seems important enough for them to project this lovey dovey image to the public...maybe some kinda religious/Mormon thing? Family values and what not.

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    I was more of a Shaun Cassidy girl.

    HAHA! Back then you had to like either Andy Gibb, Leif Garrett, or Shaun Cassidy.

    Remember when Andy was dating Victoria Principal from the Dallas TV show? I think she was at least 20 yrs older which was scandalous back then. Now look at Demi/Ashton.

    Nope, apparantly they only differed 8 years!
    She was supposedly born January 3, 1950 and Andy
    was born March 5, 1958. Yet, when they were dating
    it was first said they differed about 13 years, which
    would make her year of birth 1945.
