On Wednesday’s Larry King Live, Marie Osmond looked stunned when the host asked about her 16-year-old son entering rehab.
According to reports, Larry King never told the singer he was going to ask about her son, Michael, during an interview alongside her brother Donny Osmond to discuss their father’s passing. When King said to Osmond, “I know that you have many children … and I know that Michael is in rehab, right?,” Marie seemed at a loss for words. She could only respond by saying, “Yes, uh-huh, how did you know that?” Marie then asked Larry how he knew about her son. The talk show host would only say, “I was told.”
Osmond quickly regained her footing and described her son as being “amazing.” On Thursday, Marie’s rep told the New York Post, “She knew this information would eventually come out. She hopes this can be helpful to other families who are facing the same issue.”
