Marie Osmond's 18-year-old Son Michael Commits Suicide in L.A.

Marie_osmond BREAKING: Terrible, tragic news out of Los Angeles today.

According to reports, Marie Osmond's 18-year-old son, Michael Blosil, jumped to his death Friday night from his downtown Los Angeles apartment building, leaving behind a note referencing his life-long battle with depression.

"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," Osmond said in a statement provided by her her publicist today.

The LA Times reports that Michael's uncle, Donny Osmond, told fans this morning, "Please pray for my sister and her family." Backstory from the Times:

In November 2007, Michael, then 16, entered rehab, though what he was being treated for was not disclosed.

Osmond and Michael's father, Brian Blosil, announced in March 2007 that they were divorcing after nearly 21 years of marriage. Osmond and Blosil had two biological children together and adopted five others, including Michael. Brian Blosil also adopted Osmond's child from her first marriage.

Our thoughts are with Michael's family and friends.
