Nancy Motes, Julia Roberts’ half-sister, to whom she was very close until 2010, when they had a falling out from which they never recovered, was found dead in a Los Angeles apartment last week. A new report says the death was definitely was a suicide and that Nancy had even blamed Roberts for it in her final note.
Police are yet to confirm the cause of death, but word online has it that it was a drug overdose. Motes’ Twitter feed indicated that she had been struggling with depression but also that she still harbored very harsh feelings towards Julia, whom she blamed for ruining her life.
Insiders are now saying for Us Weekly that Motes left a very long suicide note in the apartment where she was pet-sitting. She was found unresponsive by her boyfriend in the bathtub.
“It was definitely a suicide. She left a five-page suicide letter. The EMT found it. There were three pages of rantings that her sister drove her to do this. There was one page to her mom, telling her how much she loved her, and one page apologizing to [her fiancé] John Dilbeck,” a source with the police reveals.
“It looks like a pill overdose,” adds the insider.
Just last year, in August, Motes was talking to the British press about her famous half-sister, saying they used to be very close when they were younger, as they grew up together.
However, she claimed, when Julia became America’s sweetheart and the biggest thing in Hollywood, she changed. She would often bully her for her weight, which ruined her self-confidence, Motes argued.
Three weeks before her death, Nancy went on Twitter to attack Roberts some more, calling her the B-word and saying her “America’s sweetheart” act was nothing more than just that: an act. She also said that her family had deserted her and that she was eager to be welcomed into a more kind-hearted family, that of her fiancé’s.
