Marie Osmond’s Son Michael in Rehab
Marie Osmond's 16-year-old son Michael entered a rehab facility last week, the Dancing with the Stars contestant says.
Osmond, 48, confirmed the news to CNN's Larry King on Wednesday afternoon after he asked her about it while taping an interview to air Wednesday night.
"My son Michael is an amazing young man, shown through his courage in facing his issues," Osmond said in a statement. "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."
The reason for the visit to rehab was not disclosed. Michael is one of eight children Osmond has raised with ex-husband Brian Blosil. –Tim Nudd
