In tragic but sadly expected news, Chicago police have officially confirmed the boy's body they found earlier in the day was in fact that of Julian King.

The seven-year-old nephew of Jennifer Hudson had been missing since Friday, when her mother, Darnell Donerson, and brother, Jason Hudson, were slain.

King's discovery comes not long after Hudson issued a public plea for his safe return - and a $100,000 reward for any information about his whereabouts.

Police found the body in an abandoned SUV in Chicago earlier today and are reviewing surveillance tapes in the neighborhood where the SUV was found.

The Cook County Medical Examiner's Office has not yet published any autopsy results, but the murdered child suffered at least one gun shot to the head.

R.I.P. Julian King, 7, was the son of Jennifer's sister, Julia. All of our hearts go out to Jennifer Hudson and those close to her as they mourn this tragedy.

Authorities are also trying to pin down the timeline - it remains unclear when the SUV showed up in the neighborhood with Julian's body. One witness stated it was parked there Saturday, while two other accounts say it was not.

There is no official suspect, but William Balfour - who was once married to Julia and was on parole (having served seven years for attempted murder) prior to being arrested Friday in this case, is in police custody and "a person of interest."

Others believe that an "ongoing domestic dispute" is at the center of this unspeakable crime and that Balfour is indeed the prime suspect. Stay tuned.

Perhaps trying to convince herself as much as anyone else, Audrina Patridge still feels the need to defend loser boyfriend Justin-Bobby to her friends.

In this sneak preview of tonight's Hills episode (watch below), Patridge is seen talking to oddly-named coworker Chiara (at the Epic Records offices) about the events that went down when Justin-Bobby showed up to a recent work function.

"Think of how many times you've wanted to end it with him," Chiara says, looking a tad annoyed to even be talking about this, scripted as it is. "There's a reason for that every time. He can't keep coming and sweeping you off your feet."

"He wouldn't say those things if he didn't really care," Audrina Patridge replies. "There's something that Justin and I have that no one else I've met [has]."

Gag. Much more to come on The Hills tonight! Follow the jump for the clip ...

The amazing, talented and virginal Jonas Brothers - in tuxedos! - attended the 30th Anniversary Carousel of Hope Ball in Beverly Hills Saturday. From left to right, that's Kevin Jonas (we hate Danielle Deleasa), Nick Jonas and Joe Jonas. Yummy.

Is Season Seven of Dancing with the Stars plagued by some kind of curse?

According to new reports, the amazing Julianne Hough will announce tomorrow that the ailment that landed her to the emergency room last week was more than a stomach ache, as was initially stated - it's an ovarian cyst.

The blonde stunner is going to have surgery to remove the cyst and she will have her appendix taken out at the same time (for reasons unrelated to the cyst).

No word on when the surgery will take place or if Julianne Hough will return to Dancing with the Stars - the cast members of which are dropping like flies.

HOUGH ENOUGH: Already one of the world's best dancers, the 20-year-old Utah native has already won two DWTS titles and is seeking a third with Cody Linley (above).

Here's wishing her a speedy recovery, in any case. We heart you, Jules!

Bad segue alert: Trista and Ryan Sutter, who recently announced they are expecting baby #2, are possibly expecting a new reality show as well!

"We're open to it," said Trista, who already has an adorable 15-month-old son, Max, to People. "It's just a matter of whether it fits with our lives."

Trista Sutter - still the only person from The Bachelor / Bachelorette franchise to marry the person they fell in love with on the show - says the show would involve herself, hunky hubby Ryan, Max and the new baby too.

"There are pros and cons," she says. "Having cameras in your face is a major obstacle, because we've tried to be very private. But if we want to pay our mortgage and pay off our debt, well, we will certainly consider it if it's within our lifestyle."

Trista Sutter, who had Max four weeks prematurely because of complications in her pregnancy, and says a tubal ligation will make baby #2 the couple's last.

"I know people think it's drastic when they hear that," DeAnna Pappas' mentor says. "But I have such rough pregnancies. I would have been as happy as a clam in salt water with just Max. So this is just the icing on the cake."

She says she and Ryan Sutter remain open to the idea of adoption if they ultimately decide to have a bigger family, which is nice to hear.

Holy High School Musical hotness.

In a scene straight out of a movie - and that is sure to drive their millions of 'tween fans wild, Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens took a romantic stroll on the beach in Hawaii.

Hunky Zac was shirtless, as you can see. Vanessa was slightly more covered up in a white sundress, although it probably came off seconds after this photo was taken.

She's dating Zac Efron, people. It's not like she can control it.

Beautiful and driven actress Hayden Panettiere is begging you once again to save the whales. The Heroes star, 19, has made this cause one of her goals in life.

A year ago, Hayden went to Japan to try and stop the slaughter of some whales there. That effort ended with a violent protest and a warrant for her arrest.

This time around, Panettiere says she is going to go about things a little differently - by gathering 1,000,000 signatures for a Whaleman Foundation petition.

Here's Hayden Panettiere's plea for the whales ...

According to news reports, Chicago police have found the body of a child and are investigating whether it is that of Jennifer Hudson's nephew, Julian King.

The medical examiner has not yet made an ID, but the body is that of a seven-year-old African-American boy, the same age and race as missing Julian.

The vehicle that was found in Chicago with the body inside could be the key in unlocking the mystery behind the double murders of Jennifer Hudson's mother, Darnell Donerson, and her brother, Jason Hudson, both of whom were slain Friday.

A neighbor who lives a block away from where the SUV was found says he remembers seeing the car on Saturday. During a police press conference, the man came forward and claimed he called cops that day but no one responded.

Meanwhile, two other neighbors say they're sure that the SUV was not there Saturday - meaning it could have been driven and left there sometime during that day.

If true, it would mean someone other than the suspect, William Balfour, drove it there with the body inside. Balfour was arrested Friday and is in police custody.

Perennial Father of the Year candidate Michael Lohan has apologized for calling his daughter Lindsay's girlfriend Sam Ronson "a drug" earlier this summer.

"I regret all the things I said about Samantha," Michael told New York Magazine.

"I'm a Christian. I should not be passing judgment on anyone."

Agreed, Michael. Except Dina Lohan. That would be okay.

In September, LiLo's estranged dad went off on Samantha Ronson, calling her a "dark, hideous and a disgusting representation of humanity."

Lindsay Lohan snapped back, calling her dad a "coward" on - what else - her MySpace celebrity blog. Michael says he now knows better than this.

"In the past, I felt that the best way to get to her was to speak out publicly, though the media," Michael said. "And it was the wrong choice."

Good to see that Michael, for all his faults, has seen the light and is now more tolerant of his daughter's embracing of girl-on-girl action.

Some dude crashed Kim Kardashian's 28th birthday party Saturday night - her actual birthday was October 21 - in Las Vegas, but she definitely didn't mind.

No, it wasn't Ray J. She may have objected to that.

Her NFL star boyfriend Reggie Bush, whose New Orleans Saints played without him in London as he recovers from knee surgery, popped in unannounced!

Kim Kardashian, sisters Khloe and Kourtney, pal Robin Antin and others, were partying in a hotel room at the Luxor on Saturday night when the doorbell rang just a half hour before they were to head down to the nightclub LAX.

When Kim opened the door, there stood Reggie Bush, who the Saints coaching staff had given the OK to fly to Vegas at the last minute. OMG! So cute.

WHAT A SAINT: Party krasher Reggie Bush kozies up to Kim Kardashian.

On her actual big day, Kim was in the hospital with Reggie, who had surgery that morning. So it's only fitting that the running back returned the favor.

Of the special birthday surprise, Kim told E! Online, "We had the best time! It was a birthday I will never forget. He wins the best boyfriend award!"
