32 October 23rd, 2017 Mia St. John Sets Record Straight On Report About Y&R’s Kristoff St. John As “Fabricated Information” And That “An Incident Occurred”

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.

  4. Rodd says:

    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.


    Celia replied

    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… strong!!


  5. Geraldine Lewis says:

    My prayers are with you and your family and Mr St John. I pray that the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will cover him and that the joy of the Lord will be a stress. It takes much strength. I embrace you as a woman for your coverage your strength and your compassion for the mental health issue that you are raising

  9. Jackie Garcia says:

    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.


  10. Betty Quinn says:

    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.


  11. soapqueenforever says:

    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


  12. Christine Ann Gladle says:

    My thoughts and prayers our with you Kristoff and family. My heart goes out to you and your family, I myself lost a son almost 12 years ago and im now raising his 3 children and have been for 12 years. 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.


  13. Maureen Dixon says:

    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.


  14. Louise Katz-Wicks says:


    I lost a brother Charlie 9 year ago he was 52 . It was a shock to the family and across the Art community. I was very close and I still miss him. But I went the next week and bought a puppy for the family to help us get through this. I have been watching Y and R since 18 to talk to kids at school. Your a great actor and hope your back soon. Love seeing you with Lily. Take one day at a time. Be possitive. Takecare thoughts are with you.


  15. Sissy says:

    Prayers for Kristoff and the whole St. John family!!


  16. Faith says:

    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.

  21. Tina says:

    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


    Tina replied

    Never goes away. I pray for comfort and strength in hopes that it will become bearable in some way. We love you, Kristoff!


  22. Linda Sykes says:

    I totally agree with Mia. My thoughts & prayers are with them both.


  24. Angel says:

    Praying for you and your x wife. You cant fo this without putting it in Gods hands. He will give you the strength.


  25. Tomas Torquemada says:

    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.


  26. blake says:

    I really hope Kristoff is doing better now. Hope he’s back and fully recovered.


    Addie Rouse replied

    Pray for healing and restoration for you all. God is in control.

    Dearest Kristoff,

    I remember watching you as a young child in “That’s My Mama” on TV and from your first Y&R appearance.

    I am sure that Julian is with his Heavenly Father and also with you in spirit and love. Now please receive the love and prayers from all of us as we embrace you and lift you up.
