Julia Roberts’s half-sister Nancy Motes ‘left suicide note blaming the actress for causing her death’
According to http://www.metro.co.uk Julia Roberts’s half-sister reportedly left a suicide note blaming the actress for ‘driving’ her to take her own life.
Nancy Motes – who was found dead in a bathtub just after 2pm by her fiancé John Dilbeck in Los Angeles on Sunday – is said to have cited her strained relationship with the Pretty Woman star for her emotional state.
‘It was definitely a suicide. She left a five-page suicide letter. The [paramedics] found it,’ a source revealed to the New York Daily News.
‘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 John.’
Motes and Roberts – who share the same mother, Betty Lou, but have different fathers – had a falling out last summer after Motes gave a tell-all interview accusing the Oscar winner of blocking access to their sick mother.
Just weeks before her death, the 37-year-old launched a bitter online rant about her famous sister, slamming her as a ‘b****’ who could not act.
‘So my ‘sister’ said that with all her friends & fans she doesn’t need any more love. Just so you all know ‘America’s Sweetheart’ is a B—-!!’ she tweeted, referring to Roberts’ star turn in the 2001 rom-com America’s Sweethearts.
‘Do you want to be a fan of someone so cruel? She’s not even that good of an actress. Happy you totally F***ed with me?’ adding, ‘(M)y own family has abandoned me.’
In August, Motes gave an interview claiming Roberts, 46, criticized her appearance as a teen.
‘When I was in high school and she was an adult, she would just let me know that I was definitely overweight,’ Motes revealed.
‘It just makes me feel incredibly hurt and very sad.’
Craig Harvey, chief of coroner investigations for Los Angeles County, said that Motes ‘was found in a bathtub that contained water. There were prescription and non-prescription drugs found at the scene. The role the drugs may or may not have played is not yet known’.
An autopsy was completed as of Tuesday morning, but the cause of death was deferred pending additional toxicology tests, coroner spokesman Ed Winter said.
