Actor Kristoff St. John has been placed under psychiatric evaluation after allegedly threatening to shoot himself.

According to TMZ, an ex of the Young and The Restless star called police Thursday evening claiming he had been sending her photos of himself holding a gun to his head.

Officials confiscated two guns after arriving at Kristoff's residence. The soap star was then hospitalized and placed under a 72-hour hold for mental evaluation.

Sources close to Kristoff say the upcoming 2-year anniversary of his son Julian's suicide — which took place on November 23 — could have very well triggered the actor's own suicidal thoughts.

A rep for Kristoff's ex-wife Mia St. John told the outlet that Mia is not the one who called police, or received the photos of Kristoff with a gun to his head.

We're relieved Kristoff was put under hold before he was able to harm himself, and hope he receives the proper help to get him through these dark times.

Michelle Williams

You never know what someone may be going through.

While cohosting The Talk on Wednesday, Michelle Williams courageously opened up about her longtime battle with depression — which was at its height during her time in Destiny's Child.

The 37-year-old singer revealed she confronted the group's manager (Mathew Knowles) about feeling depressed when she was topping the charts alongside Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland:

"I'm in one of the top-selling female groups of all time, suffering with depression. When I disclosed it to our manager at the time, bless his heart, he was like, ‘You all just signed a multi-million dollar deal. You're about to go on tour. What do you have to be depressed about?' So I was like, ‘Oh, maybe I'm just tired.'"

However, Michelle's depression continued to get worse "to the point where I was suicidal … and wanted out."

So sad.

The songwriter made a point to say that it is her mission to normalize the conversation surrounding mental illness, as it is often swept under the rug or left unsaid. This is such an important issue, and we commend Michelle for telling her story!

As the 25-year-old's documentary addresses the former Disney darling's rise to fame, mental health struggles, and addiction battle, we knew fans would be there for the pop star.
