Julia Roberts had a half-sister named Nancy Motes who was thirty seven years old. Nancy was found dead in Los Angeles on Sunday of what officials suspect was caused by a drug overdose.

Julia was scheduled to attend an Oscar’s luncheon yesterday according to news reports on Feb. 10 from E! Online and NY Daily News. She told her representative that she would be unable to attend as she wants and needs to be with her family to mourn over her sister.

Nancy was engaged to be married in May to John Dilbeck. She had worked as a production assistant on the hit show “Glee”. Her fiancée is a film and television locations manager and was living with Nancy in an apartment in Malibu.

The family issued the following statement: "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." "There is no official report from the Coroner's office yet. The family is both shocked and devastated."

Our deepest sympathies go to the Motes and Roberts family!
