Marie Osmond said Wednesday that her 16-year-old son has entered a rehabilitation facility, but she didn't disclose the nature of his problem.

"My son, Michael, is an amazing young man, shown through his courage in facing his issues. As his mother I couldn't be more proud of him," Osmond said in a statement issued through her publicist, Marleah Leslie.

"The press and public have always been kind and gracious in the past and I know they will continue to respect our privacy during this time," she said.

Michael is one of Osmond's five adopted children. She also has three other children from two marriages.
