LOS ANGELES, March 1 (UPI) -- U.S. entertainer Marie Osmond is in seclusion following her 18-year-old son's weekend suicide in Los Angeles, UsMagazine.com said Monday.

Michael Blosil, one of Osmond's eight children, reportedly died Friday after leaping from the eighth floor of his apartment building. He was said to have long battled depression.

"Entertainment Tonight" anchor Mary Hart said on CBS's "The Early Show" Monday that Osmond "is finding solace in her faith and her family."

"And I find tremendous grace in her own words: 'I really believe that it's the lows that make us who we are. It's not the success. It's how we handle all that,'" UsMagazine.com quoted Hart as saying on "The Early Show." "You can bet she has loving arms around her. The Osmonds are a very close-knit family and, in times of loss or tragedy, they support each other and really band together as a family, and in love."

Performances of Osmond's stage show with her brother Donny at the Flamingo Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas have been canceled until further notice.
