On Sunday, multiple reports stated that “Young and The Restless” star Kristoff St. John attempted to commit suicide. Sources said he was hospitalized and placed under psychiatric evaluation after allegedly threatening to take his life with a gun. Well, his ex-wife Mia St. John is speaking out about the situation and she says the reports were “inaccurate.”
Mia told Entertainment Tonight that her ex-husband’s heart is broken and he’s still grieving from their son’s suicide almost three years ago.
“I want the world to know the truth about what is happening with Kristoff, because currently there is inaccurate, and fabricated information being reported by certain online outlets,” she said. “No parent should ever have to bury their child, and for those who do, it is a nightmare that haunts you forever. The death of our beloved son Julian, has taken a toll on both of us. He is an actor and while he may appear whole on the outside, his heart is broken. As a society we need to start taking mental health seriously and realize that no one is immune.”
She went on to say an incident did happen that pushed him to his breaking point, but it was “not accurately reported.”
“I hope that at this moment we can all wrap our arms around Kristoff and help him in this time of need. Help him heal and move forward,” she shared. “This is not a ‘gossip’ story, or an interesting headline, this is a man trying to deal with a tragedy, that has torn apart his soul. Right now what he needs is your thoughts and prayers.”
#Roommates, let’s please keep Kristoff in our prayers!
