Country singer and American Idol Season 2 alum Josh Gracin allegedly posted a suicide note on Facebook late Thursday afternoon (August 14th).
Gracin, who’s hits include “I Want To Live” and “Nothin’ To Lose,” posted the following message, which has since been removed.
Gracin apparently posted the note in the midst of marital problems.
TMZ reports that neighbors rushed to Gracin’s Spring Hill, TN home, where he lives with his wife and four kids, and concerned family members contacted police who arrived at the home to find Gracin’s wife but not the former Marine.
Police apparently got in touch with Gracin by phone and handed the phone to his wife when Gracin said he would come home. Cops intercepted him on his way home and confirm that “he’s safe.”
Gracin’s manager posted an update to his Facebook page asking for privacy and assuring an update.
Gracin was set to perform in Charleston, WV on Friday (August 15th), but his show has been canceled. Friend and fellow singer Trent Tomlinson is stepping in to take his place.
Tomlinson sends his regards.
Our thoughts and prayers go to Gracin and his family during this difficult time. We will inform you as information becomes available.
