Nancy Motes, Julia Roberts' Late Sister, Reamed Out Actress on Twitter Last Month: Why?!

by at . Comments

Julia Roberts' late half-sister Nancy Motes, who died last weekend, appears to have called the Oscar winner out in a series of Twitter posts last month.

Motes termed Roberts a “b!tch” and “hag” as she vented, illustrating that their rocky relationship likely never healed prior to Motes’ untimely death.

Nancy Motes was found dead of an apparent overdose Sunday. In Tweets dated January 19, and written under the handle @Dabbs76, she allegedly wrote:

“So my ‘sister’ said that with all her friends & fans she doesn’t need anymore love. Just so you all know ‘America’s Sweetheart’ is a B—-H!!’”

She later added, “Do you want to be a fan of someone so cruel? She’s not even that good of an actress. Happy you totally F--ked with me?”

Clearly, she had an axe to grind, justifiably or not. Three days later, Motes, a professional dog walker, said that that her “own family has abandoned” her.

“Hey Hag! Glad you f--ked with me yet? You’re going to LOVE what’s coming! FYI - You’re an awful, hate filled old pathetic excuse for a human.”

In another bizarre twist, one of her last Tweeks was to Farrah Abraham, thanking her for following her account and asking, “Do you know who I’m related to?”

Motes, who had the same mother as the Pretty Woman star, long had bad blood with her A-list sister, 46, though it's not entirely clear why or from what.

Last May, it was rumored Julia was planning on skipping Motes’ wedding due to the tension, and concern that “Nancy [would] try to tap her for more money.”

Julia “exploded” when she saw Motes snapping photos of her newborn twins in 2005, according to the National Enquirer, offering one possible explanation.

Motes, 37, died in a bathtub, with authorities recovering both prescription and non-prescription drugs at the Los Angeles home she was discovered in.

“The investigator at the scene listed at this point that he is going with suicide,” a source said, but they are “waiting for the doctor to finish the examination."


I think that if Nancy Motes had worked harder to get at the same level as her sister Julia is, then she would had been happier and would not had a reason to kill herself. It does not matter how happier, more successful, more popular, etc. someone is. You cannot let that person bring you down and keep you from doing well yourself.


I think you are all too quick to call Julia a mean person for not having a good relationship with her sister. Do you know their circumstances well enough to already pick side? How would you feel if you are rich and famous, but your brother and sister just trying to leech money off you, coming back for more and more. Burning those money to drug (sure, suicide or... Overdose due to drug addiction >_> who knows). If you want to do the right thing, ppls will call you mean, if you don't do the right thing, the emotion strains and frustration would eat you up. Don't just judge her base on what other said, you are not living in that family >_>

I think there are too many PR handlers trying to spin this story and doing damage control making Julia Roberts sister sound like a jealous druggie. It could be the case the cold, cruel, hearted, entitled Julia bullied her sister to death by isolating her from the family and shunning her. It appears America doesn't think Julia is anyone's sweetheart.


Julia has been a fraud since day one. I just wish her status and bank account was a reflection of that. Her brother got her into the business and then she just slept her way through Hollywood, then broke up a marriage. Not to mention, she is a very ugly woman. Her Oscar was just a gift from her friends who she sucked up to. She didn't deserve that at all. Oh well the Academy Awards are a joke anyway. Glenn Close and Michele Pfeiffer never won an award but Julia did? Obviously it is just about PR.


sounds like Julia was also more worried about her cash than her sisters happiness as well-even to the extinct she was mortified that anyone in the family would make a buck because they were related-movie stars-they get uber lucky and ride some fan frenzy and get paid millions for the picture yet they begrudge a dime to any of their family-well here is one voice from the grave she won't be able to shut up


There seems to be a few issues with this family. Never forget the pic of Julia on a phone wearing a t-shirt that taunted her present husband's ex-wife. Beautiful on the outside, but something not so pretty on the inside.


Unfortunately it sounds like the late Ms Motes felt alone and alienated by her family. She was obviously struggling with some things and how very sad it is that she felt she had no one to reach out to. My prayers go out to the family as I can imagine the sadness and regrets they must be dealing with today.


This is a strange family. Julia always at odds with her brother Eric also. I'm sure this woman had her share of problems. Being a dog walker doesn't exactly put one in the same social plane as a millionaire actress. Julia comes off petty and mean here.
