Marie Osmond‘s 18-year-old son Michael Blosil tragically took his own life on Friday night in Los Angeles. The singer, currently living in Las Vegas, issued the following statement after her son’s death: “My family and I are devastated and in deep shock by the tragic loss of our dear Michael and ask that everyone respect out privacy during this difficult time.”

The teen reportedly has battled depression for several years and checked into rehab in 2007 for undisclosed reasons. He was enrolled at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in L.A. and on Friday evening he had reportedly texted a friend to come over, which was his last known attempt to contact anyone. The text explained that he left his friend a note, which is reported to be a suicide note, the contents of which have not been disclosed. Upon her arrival at his apartment, the friend and Blosil’s roommates found the note, but it wasn’t until they heard ambulance sirens that  they were alerted to the fact that he had leapt from the 8th floor apartment. An autopsy performed on Blosil on Sunday has proved inconclusive. Toxicology results will be returned in 4 to 5 weeks. [Photo: Getty Images]
