How in the world can anyone make the claim that no one in the family tried to talk to Michael? Do you know that? How dare you make such a derogatory statement without proof. Suicide happens. Suicide is the third highest cause of teenage death. Parents who have done everything also have children who commit suicide, become alcoholics, or drug addicts. Depression is a disease. Rather than being judgmental and accusatory, show compassion. I pray you never have to suffer any of the pain this family must be feeling right now.

15. Marie had no idea Larry King was going to ask her about her son. She was caught totally by surprise. As for talking to People, her rep. released a statement. It is very important for this to happen to prevent too much inaccurate speculation and information to be released to the public. If you read the comment threads, it is very obvious how quickly fallacious statements are posted and accepted as truths. My hearts breaks for this family, and I cannot imagine their pain.

DO YOU REALLY THINK HER REP WOULD RELEASE A STATEMENT WITHOUT TALKING TO HER FIRST. A REAL MOM WOULD SAY "LEAVE ME ALONE I DON'T CARE ABOUT THE MEDIA OR THOSE STUPID SHOWS I DO, I JUST LOST MY SON AND THERE IS NO COMMENT. BUT NO NOT HER, WHY PISS OF "THE INSIDER" RIGHT? DISGUSTING

Most of you people make me sick.... Someone died in a tragic way... felling like there was nothing left for him...
It's sad
It's also sad that people think this is the perfect time to attach her and her family.
Suicide in familie's isn't new and happens to good familie's all the time. Some people just don't tell anyone.
And kids isolate themselves from their familie's all the time and pretend everything is okay when they do talk with them. If ANY parent knew their child was going to commit suicide not one wouldn't try to prevent it.To think other wise just makes you look like an idiot and shows just one of the many problems you have.

Working mothers! Career mothers! Do you know where your kid(s) is/are? Babies and toddlers need their mothers not nannies and daycare centers. There are many depressed children around because of their parents and caregivers pursuing the almighty $$$ instead of nurturing a vulnerable child. Don't bring children into this World if you can't commit to being a hands on parent. Surgical sterilization is relatively painless and the mature choice for responsible adults.

Stop the hateful and hurtful comments.
Report them to TMZ.

This has gotten completely out of hand.

For those of you posting ignorant comments - please step away from the computer until you can act rationally or at least find something else to do.

There is no reason to cause this family anymore pain!
