Julia Roberts is alleged to have been abusive to her dead half-sister

Julia Roberts is being confronted with a very difficult time. Soon after news hit the headlines that her half-sister, Nancy Motes, committed suicide at 37 years old, allegations began to surface that Roberts was supposedly abusive in dealing with her. Radar Online reported on Feb. 14, 2014, "Julia Roberts Is A ‘Monster’ Who ‘Fat Shamed’ Half-Sister Nancy Motes, Fiance’s Brother Claims."

As details have begun to surface dealing with the death of Julia Roberts‘ half-sister Nancy Motes, claims sources have revealed some surviving family members say relentless taunting by Roberts may have led to Motes’ untimely overdose suicide. Conner Dilbeck, the brother of Motes’ fiancé, John Dilbeck, says Roberts “fat shamed” her half-sister, which eventually led Motes to feel that “she had no
other way out.” Motes was having trouble with her weight. Conner said, “The truth is she bullied her sister. Julia Roberts didn’t want to have a fat sister.”

According to a New York Daily News report Roberts changed her mother’s locks and cell phone number in an effort to isolate her half-sister, Motes, after a tell-all interview last summer. In this media interview Motes claimed Roberts criticized her weight. Motes is said to have overdosed on valium and other personal prescription drugs. She left behind her a long suicide letter which railed against Roberts, who is now 46 years old, for blocking access to their mother. It appears Roberts needs an opportunity for an interview to share her side of this story during this terribly sad time.
