Julia Roberts’ half-sister Nancy Motes left a suicide note before her death, according to reports, and it looks to be focused on the Academy Award-winning actress.

"There was one page to her mom, telling her how much she loved her, and one page apologizing to [her fiancé John Dilbeck]," a source tells the N.Y. Daily News.

"There were three pages of rantings that her sister drove her to do this."

Julia Roberts' Sister Left Suicide Note Blaming Her

Dilbeck’s brother, Conner, has been slamming Roberts on Facebook.

He says Nancy Motes "was driven to Take her Life" by the "Pure Cruelty of her Sister, Julia Roberts (yes Ms. Pretty Woman herself)" who did "everything in her power to Ruin her and my brothers lives."

Motes personally went off on Roberts on Twitter before she died.


She had long bashed her relationship with her famous sister in the press, talking, among other things, about Roberts’ disdain for Motes’ weight problems.

She also said Roberts blocked her from seeing their ill mother.

The New York Post reports that Julia was "mortified" at all the tabloid interviews Motes did, and wondered if her half-sister was selling the stories for money.

The Daily Mail spoke to a friend of Motes’ fiancé, who says Motes’ mom "had cut her off entirely" recently and that family problems drove her to suicide.

She died of an apparent drug overdose last weekend.

In one link to the article, which he called "the Most Accurate news report that I have read," Conner Dilbeck wrote, "Nancy wanted the Truth to come out."

"She was Willing to Die to get her point across."
