Mia St. John Sets Record Straight On Report About Y&R's Kristoff St. John As "Fabricated Information" And That "An Incident Occurred"

Photo Credit; HutchinsPhoto.com

The ex-wife of The Young and the Restless, Kristoff St. John (Neil Winters) made an official statement to ET following an item from TMZ on Sunday that said that the Daytime Emmy-winning actor had allegedly threatened to kill himself with a gun after allegedly sending photos to her, and was hospitalized and placed under psychiatric evaluation.

Mia St. John, revealed that these reports are “inaccurate”, but that an “incident” did occur.  All of this is happening as the 3rd year anniversary of the death of their son, Julian, approaches in November. As Mia relates the talented fan favorite actor’s heart is “broken”, because of it.

In her statement, Mia expressed: “I want the world to know the truth about what is happening with Kristoff, because currently there is inaccurate, and fabricated information being reported by certain online outlets. No parent should ever have to bury their child, and for those who do, it is a nightmare that haunts you forever. The death of our beloved son Julian, has taken a toll on both of us. He is an actor and while he may appear whole on the outside, his heart is broken. As a society we need to start taking mental health seriously and realize that no one is immune. Last week, an incident occurred, that pushed him to the breaking point, but was not accurately reported. I hope that at this moment we can all wrap our arms around Kristoff and help him in this time of need. Help him heal and move forward. This is not a ‘gossip’ story, or an interesting headline, this is a man trying to deal with a tragedy, that has torn apart his soul. Right now what he needs is your thoughts and prayers.”

Share your thoughts on Mia’s statement in the comment section below, as we keep Kristoff in our hearts, thoughts and prayers in the days ahead.

I think she’s spot on. It doesn’t matter what Kristoff did or din’t do. What matters is that he’s hurting and needs positive, loving help. I can’t imagine the pain he must be experiencing since his son passed away.

He has given so much to the soap community over the years. It is only fitting that we support him and send our best wishes, thoughts and prayers toward him.

God bless you, Kristoff; you and your family.

No one can imagine, Rodd, unless one has gone through the unbearable pain. It lives within you….never out of one’s thoughts.
I know what Kristoff is going through. All I can say is to put one foot in front of the other and take comfort in the fact his son is in good hands.
I have my crying spells when that wistful feeling overtakes me, but, I do know my baby is with God’s little angels, playing happily…pain free.
Thinking of you, Kristoff. I know these are just words…..be strong!!

I too, lost my son. He was 25 years old. This was 19 years ago. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Your feelings of helplessness are real, BUT I can promise you that it will be different as time goes on. You are so loved by so many, with so many reasons to live. If you give up, too many others are going to say, “me too”. No one can tell you when your grief will become bearable, but I know that I try to live each day making my son proud of his mom. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

My thoughts and prayers are with kristoff at this difficult time. May God wrap his arms around him and ease his and your broken heart. I am sorry people can not report the correct news. That adds more stress to everyone involved. He is a wonderful actor but as a fan I knew in my heart he was suffering. All my love to you both.

As a viewer and fan of Y&R sinc 1984, Kristoff has been one of my favorites since he hit the canvas. With that being said, my heart goes out to him and his family during this difficult time. No parent should bury their child. I can’t even begin to imagine what thoughts must be going through his mind right. It’s disgusting what the tabloids will say to sell a paper. I am hoping Kristoff can find strength and healing through this most personal of times

The oain never goes away and seeking help is so important because it is beyond ourselves to deal with such a tradegy. May God be with you.

I am praying for you. I have watched Y and R for the entire time that it has been broadcasting so I can say that you are like a family member. My prayers go out to you because I have lost a child. It’s a pain like none other and it never goes away but it is one that you learn to cope with. My son’s birthday and the anniversary of his death are within 2 weeks of each other. His birth date is Oct. 27 and he passed on Nov.10. I pray that God heals you and fills the void. Only He can as our Creator. He is Who I cling to in my time of grief. He’s the One Who wired us so He is the Only One Who can repair and make us whole again. Lean on Him and you will be okay.

I hate that the media horns in on the privacy of actors and actresses only to get a story.I can’t imagine losing one of my children and i know the grief is unbearable.I do understand the hopelessness that he’s going through. I once was at a point in my life where I would beg God to kill me and get me out of my misery.But God had bigger plans for my life.God also has plans for Krisoff oh the testimony he will have for others going through what’s y’all are going through.I am praying God gives him peace and hope.Remember God will never leave you where you are.Just when you think you can’t take anymore is when God shows up.

I think that Mia said it all perfectly, and with so much poise and grace. My brother just lost his daughter 2 months ago in a car crash, and he, along with the rest of our family, is suffering unbearably. My heart goes out to Mia and Kristoff, and their loved ones. No parent should ever have to bury their child. It is something that

There should be no stigma for those who suffer. Jesus sat with the afflicted, with those who were suffering. I hate how we demonize or friends and family members when they are challenged with issues of mental health.

I am so moved by the warm wishes expressed by others here. I feel great sadness for those who lost a child. In the sixth grade my best friend lost his sister unexpectedly. It was a pain that never really left. And the anniversaries were reminders just as much as birthdays and holidays. The entire family was devastated. I learned so much from them. I learned that love had other dimensions and loss could be endless

Sincere wishes for peace and healing to all.

Caroll Spinney, Legendary Sesame Street Puppeteer Behind Big Bird And Oscar The Grouch, Dead At 85

More sorrowful news on Sunday.  Caroll Spinney, the legendary puppeteer behind beloved Sesame Street characters Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch,died today,  at the age 85 at his home in Connecticut.  Spinney has been suffering from dystonia for quite some time.

For the body of his life’s work, Spinney received many significant honors.  He was the recipient of four Daytime Emmy awards, as well as the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ Lifetime Achievement Award in 2006, the Library of Congress’ Living Legend Award, two Grammy awards and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The Sesame Street workshop put on this press release upon his passing: “Caroll was an artistic genius whose kind and loving view of the world helped shape and define Sesame Street from its earliest days in 1969 through five decades, and his legacy here at Sesame Workshop and in the cultural firmament will be unending. His enormous talent and outsized heart were perfectly suited to playing the larger-than-life yellow bird who brought joy to generations of children and countless fans of all ages around the world, and his lovably cantankerous grouch gave us all permission to be cranky once in a while.

Welcomed to Sesame Street by Jim Henson, Caroll thrived under a mentorship that led to a decades-long great friendship. Caroll’s unparalleled career saw Big Bird visit China with Bob Hope, dance with the Rockettes, be celebrated with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and a U.S. postage stamp, and named a “Living Legend” by the Library of Congress. A favorite highlight for Caroll was conducting symphony orchestras and performing with them across the United States, Australia, and China, allowing him to personally connect with families everywhere through the music of Sesame Street. Caroll Spinney gave something truly special to the world. With deepest admiration, Sesame Workshop is proud to carry his memory – and his beloved characters – into the future. Our hearts go out to Caroll’s beloved wife, Debra, and all of his children and grandchildren.

Share your thoughts on the passing of Caroll Spinney and his tremendous contribution for bringing to life for children young and old, Big Bird, and Oscar the Crouch and more.

Jason Thompson (Billy,, Y&R): We lost a member of the family last night, one of our producers, Lisa De Cazotte. I first worked with Lisa when she produced the 2nd season of “Night Shift”. Years later and currently on @YandR_CBS  She was kind and smart. Our thoughts are with her family.”
