Marie Osmond Husband Brian Blosil: Inside Their Relationship

Some admirers are still perplexed by Marie Osmond and Brian Blosil’s divorce after a decade and a half. From 1986 to 2007, the marriage appeared to be stable, raising seven children together. Fans have gained new insight into the romance and its terrible conclusion.

In a February 2021 interview on Winn Claybaugh’s Master Podcast Club, Osmond spoke candidly about her divorce from Blosil. The legendary singer and talk show host is well-known for her commitment to family, community, and religion. Some fans were startled that she would consider divorce because she is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Blosil was a record producer who had one short film role and one time on a TV crew but otherwise avoided the spotlight while his wife was a global sensation. During their marriage, the couple had two biological children and adopted five more. They separated after 20 years, and Osmond was unequivocal about why.

“I immediately thought, ‘I can’t do this anymore,'” Osmond said. “And my children came up to me and said, ‘Mom, please leave; we have to get out of here,'” she added.

Many fans are attempting to interpret Osmond’s new interview with their memories of her marriage to Blosil all these years afterward. Here’s all you need to know about the couple and why they divorced.

Marie Osmond Previous Relationship

Osmond had one previous marriage and one broken engagement prior to Blosil. She was first engaged to acting student Jeff Clayton in 1979, but the relationship barely lasted two months. She later married Stephen Lyle Craig, a Brigham Young University basketball player.

They married in 1982, had one kid the following year, and divorced in 1985. Osmond mentioned “mental mistreatment” in her divorce filing, according to ABC News. Osmond allegedly met Blosil at the Jordan River Temple in Utah, where they shared their Mormon faith.

They married less than a year after meeting and started having children right away. In addition to biological children Rachael and Matthew Blosil, the couple adopted five children: Jessica, Michael, Brandon, Brianna, and Abigail. Osmond is still regarded as a supermom by her people.

Osmond has frequently spoken of suffering from postpartum depression, notably after her third biological child, Matthew. That spell of sadness apparently lasted a long time, having a particularly negative impact on her relationship with Blosil.

Marie Osmond Children

All of Osmond’s children appear frequently in her social media posts and play important roles in the stories she narrates in interviews and on television. Her family did, however, suffer tragedy in 2010, just a few years after her divorce from Blosil, when their son Michael Blosil died by apparent suicide. According to Closer Weekly, Michael committed suicide by jumping from his high-rise apartment in Los Angeles, California, leaving Osmond and the rest of the family devastated. He was 18 at the time.

Marie Osmond Husband Separation

Osmond and Blosil allegedly split discreetly for several months before filing for divorce. Before completing the paperwork, the pair tried being apart to make sure it was what they wanted, though many fans were unaware of this at the time.

Finally, in 2007, Osmond and Blosil divorced in a joint announcement, going out of their way to demonstrate that there was no hostility between them. “Though our marriage is coming to an end, we remain quite friendly,” the message said. “Our marriage has always been faithful, and neither of us blames the other for the divorce.”

That brings us up to date, where Osmond recently discussed her divorce on Claybaugh’s podcast. The singer admitted that she “wasn’t happy” in her marriage for years and believes that a home fire in 2005 was a heavenly sign.

The fire was “probably one of the most liberating things that ever happened to me,” Osmond added. “Because I realized this home I’d built was a front for a marriage that hadn’t been happy for 20 years, and I truly believe it was God — they say, ‘the burning inside,’ so sometimes these things happen to wake us up.”
