i hate how the press is totally twisting the facts: now it turns out nancy's boyfriend (who claimed Nancy blamed julia for her suicide) NEVER read the suicide letter, which has been given to betty motes

EXCLUSIVE: Fiancé of Julia Robert's half-sister breaks silence on family feud: Heartbroken partner describes late bride-to-be as 'someone in pain who loved her family and longed for a closer bond with them'



The heartbroken fiancé of Julia Robert's half-sister has spoken out for the first time since his tragic loss, insisting Nancy Motes' angry tweets in the months before her death came from 'someone in pain who loved her family and longed for a closer bond with them.'

Four days after he discovered her dead of an apparent overdose, John Dilbeck released a statement to MailOnline offering his condolences to Nancy's family and requesting to be left in peace to 'recover' from the tragedy.

'(John) and his extended family would like to express their heartfelt condolences to all of Nancy Motes family and friends,' the statement reads.


'We loved her dearly and will miss her always.

'Please know that the words she wrote in online venues were those of someone in pain who loved her family and longed for a closer bond with them.'

The 'online venues' are thought to be postings on Twitter that Nancy made in the weeks leading up to her death that apparently attacked the Oscar winner.

John and his family go on to describe Nancy as 'a kind and thoughtful person quick to give a hug or share her memorable laugh.'

The painful words come after John's fears that he may never know the full contents of her suicide note were revealed by MailOnline.

He is also believed to be terrified Julia and her family will ban him from attending Nancy's funeral because she never thought he was worthy enough for his late fiancée.


Half of Nancy's eight page suicide note has been given to Julia's side of the family - and they don't have to show John under Californian law.

MailOnline has been told the note had four pages addressed to John, one to Nancy's mother Betty Lou Motes and three to Julia and her sister Lisa, which are understood to have been brutally frank.

Under California law the Los Angeles County Coroner is obliged to give the pages to the person to whom they are addressed, and them alone.

i'm so sad julia has to deal with such people... this whole story is sickening. as much as i appreciate the fact she was classy enough to be silent so far, i kinda wish she sues all the creepy dilbeck family.

It's not PEOPLE (trust me). This is probably the damn Enquirer or In Touch. Also, Naughty But Nice Rob is AWFUL in terms of credibility. He's always wrong and just steals info from others so I wouldn't count on this coming to fruition anyway.

yes, PEOPLE and US WEEKLY are not trashy enough for this story, and they also stopped covering the whole situation soon after reporting the first news that Nancy had died. so far the story is being fueled only by the daily mail, radar.online and other c-list gossip sites.
i agree this will probably on the national enquirer.

it's a bit quiter today, but i'm afraid the video interview of conner dilbeck (airing on monday) will be a big story... :-(

Ehh, it's not going to be a big story because it's airing on Inside Edition. If it was airing on Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood, Extra, E! or one of those it would be somewhat significant. Inside Edition is the bottom tier of the news magazine shows - plus they buried their lead already by releasing most of what is said.

I actually think with Julia's mother in the hospital the backlash is just going to increase against people continuing to cover this "story" and print stories about this private situation (particularly from people who never met Julia).

The big outlets have left this entire thing alone (even TMZ has shockingly enough). I'm not concerned about places like RadarOnline and Celeb Laundry, nobody reads those.

yeah, you're probably right.

i don't know, i'm just so shocked by this thing: probably in two months nobody will remember this but right it seems huge. maybe it's just the awful timing, with the oscars and all... and i actually cannot imagine what is really happening, if julia is just trying to live her life normally without caring about all the gossip or if she's really concerned about how this can impact her public image. probably (hopefully) it's just us (me) being paranoid, while she's just having her moment of grief surrounded by her family.

Public image aside, Julia is having enough hard time with this drama and with her mom in the hospital. And those Dilbeck brothers are obviously exploiting this short moment of fame and hopefully their affirmations will be forgotten.

perhaps, it feels like a huge scandal because you seek for the articles but it's not on the same level as the woody allen deal or the philip seymour hoffman death.
i don't think it even trended in twitter when news first came out.
thank god.
i do think this has the potential to get worse before it gets better.
her team better handle this as gracefully as possible.
i can see julia just not commenting at all because it really is truly none of our business.
i hope she just doesn't comment at all about this ever. or when she does, she says pointedly that this is none of our business.
my dream scenario is julia wins at the oscars. she gets up and thanks danny and her kids and shows just a hint of sadness.
then she's asked in the press room by a journalist about nancy and she says really pointedly but definitively that it is none of our business.
