Kristin Cavallari’s brother, Michael, has been found dead, and now the actress has issued a statement about her family’s “painful” loss. As Gossip Cop reported, Michael went missing on November 27 when his car was found abandoned near a Utah highway.

On Thursday, Cavallari said in a statement, “We want to thank everyone for their love, support and prayers during this very difficult time.” She added, “We have just been informed by the authorities my brother’s body has been found. This is a very painful time and we are still processing it all. We kindly ask everyone please respect our privacy during our time of grieving.”

Shortly after it was made public that Michael had disappeared, Utah’s Grand County Sheriff’s Office confirmed his case was “an active missing person investigation.” As Gossip Cop noted, Cavallari’s brother’s 2014 Honda Civic was discovered on the road, though his whereabout were unknown. He was last seen making a purchase at a Monticello, Utah convenience store. Police used surveillance camera footage in its investigation.

On Monday, Cavallari thanked fans for their support and prayers. She wrote on Twitter, “I appreciate the thoughts & prayers that have been extended to me & my family. I have such gratitude for those that have shared their support.”

Shamefully, as reported by Gossip Cop, RadarOnline used Michael’s disappearance a few days ago to concoct a totally made-up story that vilely alleged Kim Kardashian was “livid” that coverage of him missing was allegedly “stealing the spotlight” away from her son Saint West’s birth. Kardashian’s camp exclusively told Gossip Cop the story was nothing more than a tasteless lie.

Gossip Cop would like to express its sincere condolences to the Cavallari family during this most difficult of times.
