DONNY and Marie Osmond could very well be going their separate ways!
According to American tabloid the National Enquirer, a shocking medical crisis and bitter feuding are ripping the Osmond duo apart.
Donny and Marie began fighting like cats and dogs after Marie flipped out over the cancellation of her Hallmark Channel talk show. Donny is also facing a grueling six-month recovery from surgery to repair muscle damage. He suffered the agonizing injury when he landed hard on his behind during their Las Vegas act.
“Marie tried to put a funny spin on her brother’s injury, joking, ‘I’ve always known Donny’s a butt, but now he’s proven it,’” a source said.
“But Donny’s injury was very serious, and it may spell the end for the Donny and Marie show in Las Vegas.”
Donny, 55, tore his gluteus maximus muscle while making a running leap onto a piano during their Sin City show at the Flamingo.
“The pain in Donny’s back and legs was so severe that doctors advised him to undergo surgery immediately,” said the source.
“Now, he’s extremely weak and has difficulty moving. He’s on anti-inflammatory medication and (the morphine-derived pain drug) Dilaudid. His doctors say he’ll need at least three months to heal, and then physical therapy to rebuild his strength, which could take six months or more.
“But if Donny’s doctors won’t OK him to go back to work, the Atlantic City show will have to be rescheduled.
“Since Marie lost her talk show, she’s been taking her frustrations out on everyone around her, especially Donny.
“He just couldn’t take it anymore and told a friend, ‘With the way Marie’s been acting, I’m certainly in no hurry to get back on stage with her.’
“But Marie’s desperate to hang on to the Flamingo show. She knows that audiences want to see the Donny and Marie magic – not just Marie, or Marie with a different Osmond brother.
“She’s terrified this could be the end of Donny and Marie!”
