Michael Blosil, Marie Osmond’s son, is dead at just 18 years old. Michael Blosil jumped to his death on Friday night from his L.A. Apartment building. Michael Blosil left behind a note expressing sadness because he felt he had no friends and didn’t fit in.

Apparently Michael Blosil suffered from depression. When Michael Blosil was just 16, he entered rehab in November, 2007. This was a few months after the announcement of his parents’ divorce.

In March 2007, Marie Osmond and Brian Blosil, father of Michael Blosil, decided to end their marriage of 21 years. Marie and Brian had two biological children together and five adopted children including Michael Blosil. Adding to the brood, Brian adopted Marie’s child from a first marriage.

According to the L.A. Times, Marie Osmond talked about the loss of her son Michael Blosil through her publicist today, stating, “My family and I are devastated and in deep shock about the tragic loss of our dear Michael and ask that everyone respect our privacy during this difficult time.”

Uncle Donny Osmond said, “Please pray for my sister and her family.”

Our prayers are with the family and friends of Michael Blosil. Rest in peace, Michael Blosil.

Sadly, the world loses Michael Blosil just days after the suicide of “Growing Pains” actor Andrew Koenig. If you or someone you know is thinking about suicide, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK or click here to visit their website.
