Josh Gracin Apologizes For Suicide Threat

(Undated)  --  "American Idol" alum Josh Gracin is apologizing for causing worry among family and fans Thursday with a note that was reportedly suicidal in nature.  The Season Two "Idol" finalist released a statement Friday thanking everyone for their prayers and support adding, "I take responsibility for my actions and apologize dearly for what I have put my family through."  He added that he is now getting help.  TMZ says Gracin has since checked himself into an inpatient facility.  Police picked him up in Spring Hill, Tennessee Thursday night 

The note posted to Facebook on Thursday suggested Gracin was about to take his life.  The country singer and former Marine blamed his wife for the state he was in saying she had turned his back on him.  He then wrote, "Pray for my family as they carry on in this world without me.  Goodbye."
