Kristoff’s personal life has been filled with tragedy for years. His son Julian, who he shared with ex-wife Mia St. John, committed suicide back in 2014 while getting treatment at a mental health facility. Kristoff and Mia sued the facility for negligence.

The former Y&R actor then threatened to kill himself with a gun in 2017 around the anniversary of Julian’s suicide. Cops placed him under a 72-hour hold for psychiatric evaluation.

Mia reacted to her ex-husband’s death with a now-deleted tweet, saying “THAT HOSPITAL KILLED OUR SON @TheArtofJulian THEN MY HUSBAND @kristoffstjohn1THATS WHAT HAPPENED! THEY KILLED MY FAMILY.”

Kristoff retweeted a chilling message on January 21st.
