Marie Osmond has experienced one of the worst things that can ever happen to a parent: the death of a child. And now that she’s nearing the tenth anniversary of her son’s suicide, she’s opened up about the devastating event. Yes, the beloved star spoke to CBS This Morning – and the heartbreaking confession that she made may well leave you in shock.
As most fans will no doubt know, Marie is a member of the famous Osmond clan – which also includes brothers Donny, Jimmy and Alan. But the star had seven children herself, too, two of which are her biological offspring. Michael, on the other hand, was one of her adopted kids, and sadly, he suffered terribly with his mental health. In fact, before taking his own life, the 18-year-old left a note citing his “torment” as the reason why.
