In very sad news, “Young & The Restless” star Kristoff St. John allegedly tried to shoot himself. Find out the unfortunate details inside…

UPDATE: Kristoff's ex-wife Mia St. John says she did not call police and was not sent pics of Kristoff with guns, as previously reported.  She also threatened to sue TMZ, who is sticking by their story that an ex (even though not Mia) did call police:

This is completely unfortunate.

“Young & The Restless” star Kistoff St. John has been reportedly hospitalized with a psychiatric evaluation after he apparently threatened to kill himself with a gun.

According to TMZ, Kristoff’s ex-wife Mia St. John called police Thursday evening (October 19th) after she said she received pictures of Kristoff holding a gun to his head. Law enforcement arrived at his home and confiscated 2 guns. He was placed under a 72-hour hold for mental evaluation.

The 3-year anniversary of his son Julian’s suicide is approaching (November 23, 2014) and sources around the star say it made him extremely upset as date time grew nearer.

Kristoff and Mia filed a wrongful death lawsuit against La Casa Psychiatric Health Facility in Long Beach, CA after his son Julian St. John (who suffered from schizophrenia for years) committed suicide. He was 24.

A few weeks ago, the long time soap opera star posted this on his Instagram:

They eventually settled with the parent company of the Long Beach mental health hospital in July 2017. All of the money they received from the settlement has been used to set up the "El Saber es Poder" ("Knowledge is Power") Foundation to battle mental illness following Julian's death.

Here's a clip of Kristoff and Mia talking about their son's death below:

 

 

 

 

Heartbreaking.

We're keeping Kristoff and his family in our prayers.
