Marie Osmond’s 16-year-old son has entered rehab, the star revealed last night on “Larry King Live.”
Marie, 48, didn’t reveal why Michael entered a facility last week or where the program is behind held.
“He's dealing with a lot of issues," she told Larry King. "I don't know that I feel comfortable talking for him. I think he'll have to deal with that."
The “Dancing with the Stars” beauty also issued a statement about the news, saying, “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, who is adopted, is one of eight kids Marie has raised with ex-husband Brian Blosil.
"I will say this," Marie said. "My son is amazing. He's dealing with a lot. He's one of my kids. He's dealing with adoption issues and all kinds of things right now."
The past few weeks have been rough for Marie. Last week, her father George died at age 90. Before that, she fainted on national television after a “Dancing” routine.
Still, Marie has shown resiliency throughout her tumultuous month.
After her collapse, she told “Extra,” “You just have to pull up the boot straps and go for it again.”
