Not all Hollywood stories have fairy tale endings, like in the movie Pretty Woman. It was announced today that Julia Roberts half sister dead of overdose and was found over the weekend. Nancy Motes, 37, was the youngest sister of the Academy Award-winning actress Julia Roberts and actor Eric Roberts.
“It is with deep sadness that the family of Nancy Motes … confirms that she was found dead in Los Angeles yesterday of an apparent drug overdose,” the statement reads. “There is no official report from the Coroner’s office yet. The family is both shocked and devastated.”
This overdose tragedy of Julia Roberts Half Sister dead is way too close to the recent overdose of Oscar winning actor, Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
“When I was in high school and she was an adult, she would just let me know that I was definitely overweight,” Motes said at the time. “She would make it quite clear to me and in a not-so-nice a manner.”
“It just makes me feel incredibly hurt and very sad,” added Motes, who once weighed nearly 300 pounds before her decision to undergo gastric bypass surgery in June 2010.
She said she hoped her transformation would help repair their fractured relationship, however noted it was still “a work in progress.” Motes said of Julia, “It’s not going to be fixed overnight, nor do I think it’s going to be fixed at this point by me just getting skinny.”
At the time of the interview, Motes was living in a Malibu apartment with her fiance John Dilbeck, a film and TV locations manager. The couple had planned to wed in May.
