Tragedy has struck the Osmond family.

Michael Blosil, the son of Marie Osmond, committed suicide last night. The trouble teen, who left a suicide note, jumped from his Los Angeles apartment building around 9 p.m.

Entertainment Tonight confirmed the news and quoted Donny Osmond as saying: "Please pray for my sister and her family," while Marie recently released a statement that reads:

"My son Michael is an amazing young man, shown through his courage in facing his issues. As his mother, I couldn't be more proud of him. The press and public have always been kind and gracious in the past, and I know they will continue to respect our privacy during this time."

Michael was one of Marie's eight kids. He reportedly suffered "severe depression" throughout his life, insiders say, and entered a rehab facility in 2007 at age 16.

Marie and Donny have canceled their Las Vegas show tonight, of course, and there's no word on when they might return to the stage. Our thoughts our with their loved ones.
