Kristoff St. John placed under psychiatric evaluation

“Young and The Restless” Kristoff St. John  was reportedly hospitalized and placed under psychiatric evaluation after allegedly threatening to kill himself with a gun.

Law enforcement sources say the actor’s ex-wife, Mia, called police Thursday evening and told them St. John had been sending her photos showing him holding a gun to his head.

When cops arrived, they confiscated 2 guns and placed St. John under a 72-hour hold for mental evaluation. TMZreports that sources close to the soap star say the 3-year anniversary of his son Julian’s suicide is fast approaching (November 23) and that may have affected him negatively

By the way, Mia (Kristoff St. John’s ex) set up the “El Saber es Poder” (“Knowledge is Power”) Foundation to battle mental illness following Julian’s death.
