Marie Osmond, has canceled her Las Vegas show to continue to mourn the loss of her 18 year old son, Michael Bryan. Emotionally devastated over the fact he committed suicide, additional disturbing information has been revealed about his relationship with his dad.
It’s reported that at the time of Michael’s death, he was estranged from his father, Brian Blosil. In fact, it was so strained, he didn’t even attend his son’s funeral. Over the years, Michael had grown estranged from him to the point he had petitioned to legally change his last name from “Blosil” to “Bryan.”
In his Utah petition he wrote, “My relationship with my father while I lived at [home] was extremely strained, at the present time, I have no relationship with my father and have no desire to continue to carry his last name.” His request was granted on March 1 and his death certificate refers to him as “Michael Bryan.”
In addition, his sister Jessica also applied to drop Blosil and take the name of Osmond. In her petition she wrote:
“While I lived with my parents, my relationship with my father, Brian Blosil, was extremely strained,” she wrote in her name change affidavit. “At the present time, I have no relationship with my father and have no desire to continue to carry his last name. … I wish to be known by my mother’s surname, Osmond.”
She was granted the name change on March 5, one week after Michael’s death. Thoughts and prayers go out to Marie Osmond and her family during this difficult time. Losing a child is probably one of the most heartbreaking experiences any mother could have.
