A grieving Marie Osmond has canceled this week’s scheduled performances of her Donny and Marie show, as she attempts to cope with the tragic suicide of her son, Michael Bryan.
“[Marie] is hanging in there, but she’s struggling,” Marie’s personal assistant, Darla Sperry, told the Las Vegas Sun. “What can we expect? She is doing the best she can. Please keep her in your prayers.”
The Flamingo Las Vegas hotel confirmed this evening that all Donny and Marie shows this week officially have been canceled. The next scheduled date tickets are being sold for is Tuesday, March 23.
The Osmonds tried to make up for the six lost shows following Michael’s death by adding previously open dates from April 13 to 17. It has not been announced if other dates will be changed as a result of the latest shift in the duo’s performance schedule.
Michael, who had previously used his adopted last name of Blosil but was discovered to have been granted a legal name change by Utah’s 4th District Court, committed suicide by jumping from a downtown Los Angeles apartment building on Feb. 26.
