Emmy-winning and longtime star of the popular soap the “Young And The Restless,” Kristoff St. John’s (pictured above) and his wife, Mia, announced via Twitter that their “beautiful” 24-year-old son, Julian (pictured below), committed suicide, thereby ending his lifelong battle with mental illness.

Julian, whom his parents say was a gifted artist, suffered from serious bouts of depression.
