Marie Osmond's 18-year-old son, Michael Blosil, committed suicide on Friday.  He reportedly jumped from his apartment after leaving a note.

Blosil had a long battle with depression, and entered rehab in 2007 when he was 16.  Osmond announced that she was divorcing Michael's father Brian about 8 months prior.

Osmond made a statement to ET that she and her family "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."
