Nancy Motes' fiancé slams Julia Roberts over suicide of sister

See also

John Dilbeck is the distraught fiancé of the late Nancy Motes, sister of Julia Roberts. Dilbeck gave an emotional interview to the Daily Mail in which he blamed Roberts for her sister’s suicide. Dilbeck said their family is “the ultimate dysfunctional Hollywood family.”

Dilbeck went on to say that “if Nancy hadn’t been Julia Roberts sister, I believe she’d still be alive.” Those are harsh words coming from Dilbeck who has no way of knowing if that statement has even a shred of truth to it.

In the interview, Dilbeck alleges that there were shouting matches and “bitter emails and letters” between the sisters. “Nancy felt bullied by Julia her whole life. Julia tormented Nancy about her weight and called her a fat failure. Nancy spiraled into a pit of depression and took her own life.”

Dilbeck was forced to admit that Motes suffered from a serious drug abuse problem during the last years of her life. Those drug problems are just as likely to have contributed to Motes’ suicide. Dilbeck said, “She became paranoid about Julia saying she wanted to ‘destroy’ her and calling her ‘that bitch’ and ‘the monster.’”

In the weeks leading up to her death, Nancy Motes took to Twitter to tweet some nasty comments about Roberts. Motes called her a “hag” and said she was “a hate filled pathetic excuse for a human.”

As if that wasn’t harsh enough, Motes got the last word in her suicide note by attacking Roberts one final time. Dilbeck shared the suicide note that read, “My mother and my so called ‘siblings’ get nothing except the memory that they are the ones that drove me into the deepest depression I’ve ever been in.”
