Seventies pop icon Donny Osmond has been forced to scrap his Down Under tour after suffering a double family tragedy in the space of just two days.
The PUPPY LOVE singer, who was due to tour New Zealand and Australia later this month (MAY06), has cancelled the dates to mourn the death of his mother-in-law and take care of his ailing father.
Osmond was still grieving a day after learning his mother-in-law, MARJORIE GLYNN, had lost her battle with cancer on 22 April(06) when his 88-year-old father fell and broke his hip, according to American tabloid the National Enquirer.
A family insider tells the publication, "He (Osmond) put everything on hold to spend time with his mother-in-law and to support his wife during her time of need.
"The next day Donny's father GEORGE broke his hip, and was rushed to the hospital. He's since had two surgeries to help repair the hip."
