The 18-year-old son of American singer Marie Osmond has died, a spokesman for the family has said.

Ms Osmond, 50, said in a statement that her family was "devastated and in deep shock by the tragic loss" of her son Michael Blosil.

News reports from the US suggested he committed suicide by jumping from an apartment building in Los Angeles.

Marie and her brother Donny hosted the popular TV variety programme the Donny & Marie Show in the late 1970s.

The Los Angeles coroner's office said the death was being investigated.
