Tragic Real Life Details About Donny Osmond
The Unforgiving Press
While speaking to the British chat show “Loose Women,” Donny Osmond recalled one particularly brutal takedown by the media that still haunts him to this day.
“I was 14 or 15 [...] and Rolling Stone magazine comes out with an article which says ‘the worst day in rock'n'roll history was the day Donny Osmond was born,’” Osmond revealed.
Lonely Teenage Years
Although Osmond was a chart-topping pop star adored by millions across the world as a teenager, he felt completely isolated and lonely.
“You've got literally thousands [...] yelling your name, but then you go back to a very quiet hotel or the bus. I learned what loneliness is in life,” Osmond told Closer Weekly.
A Disapproving Father
During an interview with The Guardian, Osmond recalled how he began dating Debbie Glenn in secret. He added, “By the time I was 19, I knew I was in love.”
However, his father, George, wasn’t on board with the idea of him getting married so young. “When I told my dad, he said, ‘Well, there goes your career,’” Osmond revealed.
Hate Mail
During an appearance on “The Drew Barrymore Show,” Osmond confessed that he was forced to date Glenn in secret at the time to avoid a fallout with his army of admirers.
However, Osmond was unable to keep his nuptials in the dark and had to deal with everything from record-burning parties to hate mail, often directed toward his wife.
The Child Star Curse
Osmond had sold millions of records and topped the charts, all by the age of 21. However, it was around this age that the industry dismissed him as a has-been.
“It is a curse when you hit it big as a little kid [...] it takes an awful lot of work to be accepted as an adult,” Osmond confessed in an interview with Fox News.
