http://www.insideedition.com/videos/225 ... as-a-bully

nancy's bf doesn't want to be left out from the funeral but what does he expect after in inteview like that? also, it looks like Nancy was estranged with lisa too: did lisa (who is definitely NOT thin) fat-shame her as well...?

the national enquirer has a story this week, but not the full cover.
it looks like the thing is slowly being left by the press, and i'm happy julia has managed to avoid paparazzi in this very difficult week.

Julia Roberts’ Half Sister Cremated



Motes, 37, was found dead of an apparent suicide at a home in Brentwood, Los Angeles on February 13.

It’s understood that her ashes will now be taken to her hometown in Smyrna, Georgia.

Motes’ body was found in a bathtub by her fiancé John Dilbeck with a suicide letter containing pages for family members along with non-prescription and prescription drugs close-by.

“John has learned that Nancy’s body had been cremated and that he was not in attendance,” a source told RadarOnline.

“It is understood that her ashes will be returned to Georgia.”

Dilbeck has been forced to hire a lawyer to sort through Motes’ belongings with the Roberts’ extended family.

“It’s very sad because there are some disputes about who has rights to Nancy’s possessions also,” the insider told Radar.

“He has hired a lawyer to get advice on where he stands and has other people including his own family advising him.

“John’s trying to cope the best he can but it has been very tough on him as he was due to marry Nancy this summer.

surprise surprise: after 10 days of silence, the day before the oscars nancy's boyfriend release a tell-all interview trashing julia

Ugly side of the Pretty Woman: Screaming rows, accusations of betrayal and deceit... and a lonely suicide. The fiance of Julia Roberts's tragic sister reveals the bitter family rift that drove her to her deathJulia Roberts's' half sister Nancy Motes died from an overdose in February
In her suicide note, Nancy puts blame on her 'mother and siblings'
Before her death, Nancy had branded Roberts a ‘bitch’ and a ‘bully’
Her fiance can now reveal what was written in her 12-page suicide note


She is Hollywood’s ultimate Pretty Woman; a little girl from Georgia who became a global superstar blessed with a loving husband, three beautiful children and a Best Actress Academy Award.
But when Julia Roberts walks the red carpet at tonight’s glittering Oscars ceremony, hoping to win a second award for her brilliant portrayal of a vindictive daughter at the centre of a dysfunctional family in August: Osage County, she knows the truth is far more sinister.
For less than five miles from the shining lights of LA’s Dolby Theatre, sits a grieving man who believes that she bullied his fiancee – Julia’s half-sister – into a depression that led her ultimately to take her own life.

Just three weeks ago, the love of John Dilbeck’s life, Nancy Motes, killed herself with a drugs overdose in the bath, leaving a devastating suicide note which blamed her famous sibling for driving her to despair. Last night, in a world exclusive interview, grieving Mr Dilbeck, 31, told for the first time of what he calls ‘the ultimate dysfunctional Hollywood family’.

It is a tale of two sisters – one whose beauty and talent led to worldwide adoration, yet whose fame and success drove the other into a paroxysm of self-loathing from which she was unable, or unwilling, to recover.
Mr Dilbeck, a location scout who met Nancy at a Hollywood party in 2009, says: ‘The world knows Julia Roberts as America’s sweetheart but the reality is far different.
‘Nancy felt bullied by Julia her whole life. Julia tormented Nancy about her weight and called her a fat failure. Nancy spiralled into a pit of depression and took her own life.
‘I found her dead in a cold bath. I put the blame for that firmly in the hands of her family. If Nancy hadn’t been Julia Roberts’ kid sister I believe she would still be alive.’
In a series of devastating claims, Mr Dilbeck tells a story that he calls ‘the dirty truth behind the golden image’. He reveals:
Nancy’s handwritten suicide note, in which she points the finger of blame saying: ‘My mother and so-called “siblings” get nothing except the memory that they are the ones that drove me into the deepest depression I have ever been in.’
How in dozens of emails, voice messages and writings Nancy branded her superstar sibling a ‘bitch’, a ‘bully’ and a ‘mean girl’ whose ego and fame destroyed their once-close relationship;
Julia’s increasingly desperate attempts to heal the rift with her 37-year-old sister;
How Julia flew into a rage when Nancy failed to delete photographs of her children;
How Julia accused her sister of an ‘incredible betrayal’ after Nancy sold her story; a move that provoked a bitter family feud;
How the family had Nancy’s body cremated without inviting Mr Dilbeck to the funeral. Mr Dilbeck, who dated Nancy for five years before proposing to her on the set of the hit show Glee (a job she landed thanks to Julia’s connections) veered between flashes of anger and moments of grief as he spoke to The Mail on Sunday.
Love of his life: John Dilbeck, 31, was engaged to Nancy, but had to borrow money from her and Julia's mother Betty Motes to buy the engagement ringLove of his life: John Dilbeck, 31, was engaged to Nancy, but had to borrow money from her and Julia's mother Betty Motes to buy the engagement ring

‘Nancy was a tortured soul. She grew up in the shadow of a superstar as a sister and Julia’s fame cast a cloud over her life,’ he says. ‘Nancy adored Julia but she became increasingly resentful of the way Julia behaved towards her. In Nancy’s mind Julia was a bully and bitch.
‘Julia is used to being Queen Bee. She has fame and money beyond anyone’s wildest dreams but with that comes power and ego. Nancy and Julia fought many times over the years and the family always sided with Julia because she’s the successful one. By the end Nancy felt abandoned and alone.’
Growing up in the small town of Smyrna, Georgia, Nancy idolised Julia, nine years her senior. Julia and her older siblings, Eric and Lisa, were the children of mother Betty’s first marriage to theatre director Walter Roberts, who divorced when Julia was five. The same year – 1972 – Betty married Michael Motes (an alcoholic who would later ‘come out’ as gay) and had Nancy four years later.
It was this troubled start that changed the course of both sisters’ lives. In Julia’s case it gave her a ruthless drive to succeed and led to her becoming the first woman to command a salary of $20million a movie. For Nancy it left deep-rooted insecurities which led to drug addiction and emotional instability.
Mr Dilbeck says: ‘Lisa and Eric left home as soon as they could. Michael Motes was a drunk who would lash out in alcoholic rages. Julia was extremely protective of Nancy. Nancy’s earliest memories were of Julia screaming at her father and telling him to “back off” and of him throwing a Walkman across the room in a rage.’
At 18, Julia used a small trust fund left to her by her biological father – who died of cancer – to leave Georgia. Her acting career immediately took off in hits including Steel Magnolias, Pretty Woman and Sleeping With The Enemy.
Mr Dilbeck says: ‘Nancy was proud of Julia but she had severe abandonment issues. Her dad walked out when she was four and then Julia left home when she was nine. She had a knee operation as a teen and piled on weight because she couldn’t exercise. While her sister was the Pretty Woman, Nancy was an overweight, insecure teenager.’
Nancy regularly visited her sister in Hollywood as she tried unsuccessfully to launch her own career. When that failed she started to experiment with drugs, including marijuana, cocaine and prescription pills: ‘She dreamed of following Julia to Hollywood but was always wracked with self-doubt,’ says Mr Dilbeck. ‘She was diagnosed with depression and was in therapy most of her life.
‘She went to Hollywood in her twenties but it didn’t work out. She used drugs to try to fill the hole inside her. Nancy insisted Julia gave her no help at all, even though she was the world’s biggest movie star.

‘Nancy was resentful but Julia said that she should make it on her own, like she had. Nancy went to auditions, worked as a waitress then moved back home.’
For the next 20 years, as Julia’s career went from strength to strength, Nancy remained in Smyrna living in the basement of her mother’s house and caring for Betty, who suffered a series of illnesses. A lingering bitterness grew.
Mr Dilbeck says: ‘Nancy was fiercely loyal to Julia but told me she increasingly felt Julia was dismissive of her. Nancy had a lifelong struggle with her weight and Julia would waltz back to Smyrna once or twice a year and berate her saying things like, “How can you let yourself go like that?” and “You should have more self-discipline and not get so fat.”
Nancy kept journals in which she chronicled her resentment. In one she wrote: ‘Julia Roberts is a bitch!’ In another, Nancy admitted that Julia was paying all her medical bills, but added: ‘It’s like she is slowly, in her own way, pushing me out of her family and life. All I have ever wanted is a big sister. She does the meanest things to me. I HATE MY SISTER!’
Whether Julia was aware of her sibling’s growing jealousy or not, the star was, by Nancy’s own admission, generous. She paid for expensive holidays to Jamaica and Costa Rica, funded trips to LA so Nancy could audition for movie roles, and invited her sibling on to movie sets.
Yet Nancy felt increasingly slighted, exploding in rage when Julia criticised her weight gain or lack of ambition.
The ill-will between the sisters worsened when Julia had her twins, Phinnaeus and Hazel, in November 2004, and the entire Roberts clan gathered at Julia’s ranch in Taos, New Mexico for Christmas.
‘Betty bought Nancy a digital camera for Christmas,’ Mr Dilbeck explains. ‘Nancy was taking lots of pictures, including of the new babies. Julia felt uncomfortable and told her to erase the pictures from the camera, which Nancy thought she’d done.
‘But [Nancy told me that] Julia later went through the camera and discovered some photographs still on there. She came barging into her bedroom, holding one of the twins. She was incandescent with rage, screaming at her and accusing her of wanting to sell the pictures to the tabloids. Nancy had never sold a story and was shocked. They had a terrible row but the die had been cast. Julia never trusted Nancy again, and Nancy felt wrongly accused.’
In October 2009, when Betty had a mild heart attack, Julia wanted her mother to live closer to her so bought her £1million home in the Pacific Palisades area of LA.

Nancy and John drove Betty across country in the Spring of 2010. Mr Dilbeck says: ‘That was the first time I met Julia. She came into Betty’s new house and Nancy’s stuff was all over the floor. Julia shot her a mean look and said: “You are disrespecting mother by throwing your stuff over the floor.”
‘Nancy had a pinched nerve in her back from sitting in the car during the long drive and was moving slowly. Julia said: “Maybe if you lost weight you might not have back pain.” Nancy looked at her and said, “F*** you!” and stormed off.’
Julia tried to hold out an olive branch. Knowing Nancy needed money, she asked a friend who owned a sushi restaurant to give Nancy a temporary waitressing job. She then called Glee creator Ryan Murphy – who directed Julia in Eat, Pray, Love – and arranged for Nancy to get a job on the TV show in the ‘special projects’ department.
Mr Dilbeck says: ‘When Nancy started on Glee she was the happiest I’d ever seen her. Julia would invite us to her home in Malibu. Her house is amazing. There is a tree house for the kids with a zip line, a massive pool and staggering views over the bluff.
‘We would go there for family events.’
The actress, a health food fanatic, would serve gluten-free pizza she had made herself: ‘It tasted terrible but everyone would pretend to like it because Julia Roberts had made it.
‘She lives in a rarified world. Everything is controlled and perfect and revolves around her. Nancy wasn’t perfect. She had issues. Julia couldn’t control her. It was a recipe for disaster.’
At Nancy’s birthday in 2011 Julia turned up with a salad made from her garden. Nancy overheard her sibling tell another family member: ‘She’s really let herself go.’
Then in 2012, weighing 19st, Nancy had a £20,000 gastric bypass surgery. Within a year she lost eight stone, but her drug dosages were not reduced. ‘She was on prescription meds for arthritis, lupus, depression, sleep disorders. She was in a fog. Her depression worsened. Her hatred towards Julia deepened.
‘Her mum took her on shopping sprees. Betty has a trust funded by Julia. When Julia found out Betty was spending so much on Nancy she was furious. She accused Nancy and me of mooching off Betty. In Julia’s mind we were freeloaders.’
Mr Dilbeck admits he borrowed from Betty to buy Nancy’s £1,500 engagement ring.
Then, last year, Nancy finally sold a story about her weight loss surgery to a US tabloid – the ‘ultimate betrayal’ for Julia who fiercely protects her private life.
She ‘raged’ on the phone to her sister accusing her of being a ‘terrible person’ and bitter emails were exchanged. In one, Julia spoke of Nancy’s ‘incredible betrayal’ saying ‘family is sacred, special, one of a kind and private to me’.
In the message, seen by The Mail on Sunday, she says: ‘You feel separate and isolated because you distance yourself. I am writing and not calling because, in the past when I have called you, you are either silent on the other end of the line or you fly into such a rage of anger I can not even understand you.’

Julia then beseeched her sister, saying ‘there is always a place to heal and move on no matter what the damage done’. She adds ‘this only happens when apologies are made and responsibility is taken for the betrayal’.
Mr Dilbeck claims the family also cut Nancy off in the final few months of her life and made sure that she had no contact with her mother: ‘Being cut off from Betty was the straw that broke the camel’s back. She couldn’t cope. She couldn’t eat or sleep.
‘Her drug addiction took hold. She was having seizures. She became paranoid about Julia, saying she wanted to “destroy” her and calling her “that bitch” and “the monster”.’
Nancy posted a series of tweets in the weeks leading up to her death. One said: ‘Hey Hag! Glad you f***** with me yet... you’re an awful, hate filled pathetic excuse for a human.’ Mr Dilbeck admits: ‘She was losing her mind.’
On February 8, Mr Dilbeck dropped his fiancee off at the home of a doctor whose dogs she was looking after. When he arrived back the next day to pick her up, there was no response.
‘I panicked, called the doctor and got the code to enter the house. I ran into the master bathroom and she was in the tub. It was obvious she was dead. I pulled her out and tried to do CPR but it was too late.’ Empty pill cases were found in the house along with marijuana and a handwritten 12-page suicide note.
‘She apologised to her mother for the pain she’d caused her. The rest was a rant against Julia and Lisa blaming them for her death, saying they had pushed her to it. It was a tirade of abuse. She said things like “You ruined me. You drove me to this”.’
He says the family has cut him off: ‘I wasn’t even invited to Nancy’s funeral. They cremated her without telling me. They want all her possessions back.’
In anger he accused Julia – who released a statement through her PR saying the family is ‘shocked and devastated’ – of crying ‘crocodile tears’: ‘Nancy was the black sheep of the family and now she’s no longer around to embarrass them. I’m guessing that must be something of a relief.’
Mr Dilbeck, who is planning a memorial for Nancy next week, will spend tonight quietly reflecting on his lost love. ‘I can’t stomach watching the Oscars. I don’t want to see Julia walk that red carpet,’ he says. ‘People see her and this perfect image and think she has a perfect life. I want people to know the truth.
‘Julia probably still doesn’t think she’s done anything wrong. But she constantly rejected Nancy. Nancy felt bullied and abused for years. In the end it got too much. That’s something all the money in the world and all the awards can’t heal.’
Julia did not return repeated requests for comment.

what a piece of sh-t this fiancee is. he just basically revealed how much of a wackjob nancy was and how julia gave the woman several chances to fix her life but she proceeded to surround herself with opportunists such as this guy. i knew from the second he said "no comment at this time", he was shopping his story around for the highest bidder. of course, daily mail had to bite the bait.

i don't think this would factor in whether julia decides to go to the oscars or not. her decision was made some time ago. i think she won't. a death in the family is quite big. and it was a suicide no less.

i do hope she attends the ceremony or at least until best supporting actress is announced.

by the way, can someone email this piece of sh-t tabloid that the picture of julia shopping with her sister is actually her sister lisa.

nancy's suicide can only be blamed squarely on nancy's shoulders. if she blames other people for ending her life, then she chose to end her life in a bitter, selfish note which makes think how much of a waste of a human being she was.

why does nobody talk about the role of the fiancé in all this? I mean the woman he was about to marry kills herself. Certainly, he should have been around to stop her? to give her moral support to help through all this. on the contrary, he now puts the blame on somebody else. So sad.

ok, having now read the article, and I don't know if this was the intention or not, but it actually makes Julia look like a responsible adult and a pretty generous person, and Nancy like a damaged soul? Even what Dilbeck says - it comes down to Julia always trying to do something for her mother and/or Nancy, but Nancy never being happy or satisfied about it, always wanting more.

Julia giving the best performance in her career in AOC, is not a surprise. Even if she insisted that she had/has a happy life, she also, had a difficult childhood, dysfonctional relationships with then Eric and more recently Nancy. I mean she had to dig somewhere in her personal history to deliver her Barbara masterful performance.
I believe she is a fighter and this storm will end very soon. I wish her all the best.

Julia’s Worst Nightmare? Secret Video Diary Of Roberts’ Tragic Sister REVEALED
Posted on Mar 12, 2014 @ 14:33PM | By Radar Staff

Just as Julia Roberts begins to recover from the tragic suicide of her sister, Nancy Motes, she may be headed for another nightmare: RadarOnline.com has learned that portions of Motes’ secret video diaries recently leaked online and her estranged relationship with Roberts is among the topics of her heartfelt confession.

A preview for what was being characterized as an upcoming film, called Now That I Have Your Attention, surfaced on YouTube Monday. According to accompanying text, the film was set to reveal “how [Motes] was bullied about her weight by her family and how her life day to day … really was by her own words. Real Life Moments.”

PHOTOS: Celebs Who Died Young

Roberts’ attorneys have since had the video taken down, claiming Motes’ estate owns the videos’ copyright. As such, the documentary will never see the light of day — but only Radar got a sneak peek!

In the clip, part of which was filmed on May 15, 2013, Motes hinted at the feud with her famous sister that would consume her tragic last months.

“Same old same old with my family,” she sighed. “Situation doesn’t change … There’s been some crap …”

PHOTOS: Heroin Addicts, Coke Fiends & Celebrity Stoners — Hollywood Drug Dealers Tell All!

Later in the clip, she’s shown distraught, almost in tears, choking out the words, “Sh*t is so f*cked up. F*cked up.”

Indeed, it seemed her family drama was overshadowing her recent engagement – which she gushes about in the clip — and her weight loss victory. After gastric bypass surgery, she said, she was down “well over 100 pounds.”

But just a few months later, things turned nasty when Motes launched a vitriolic Twitter rant against older sister Roberts, as Radar has reported.

“So my ‘sister’ said that with all her friends & fans she doesn’t need anymore love,” Motes wrote. “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—ed with me?”

Motes was found dead of a drug overdose on February 9.

EXCLUSIVE: Julia Roberts Holds a Private Memorial For Half Sister, Nancy Motes

Julia Roberts may have been a no-show for the March 8 memorial service for her half sister, Nancy Motes — but in In Touch has learned it was for good reason.

A source exclusively reveals to the mag, on stands now, that the Oscar winner and her mother, Betty Lou Motes, held a separate, private service for Nancy — who died on Feb. 9 of an apparent drug overdose — one day earlier at the same church so they could grieve alone
“The family didn’t want the focus of the [public] memorial to be on them,” the source reveals to In Touch. “They wanted it to be about Nancy and her memory.”

Despite a reportedly long-standing rift with Nancy, Julia wanted the utmost respect paid to her sister, 37.

“The whole Roberts family came and brought pictures of Nancy. Each honored her in their own way,” the source tells In Touch. “It was tough for them, but I think Nancy would’ve been very happy with the way things were done.”

From Siblings To Strangers: Julia Roberts’ Texts To Tragic Sister Show Breakdown In Relationship
Posted on Mar 13, 2014 @ 3:14AM | By Radar Staff


For years, Julia Roberts was America’s Sweetheart, but according to her sister Nancy Motes, she’s really a “b*tch.” Motes slammed her famous sis in Twitter posts before her tragic death, and now the release of alleged texts from Roberts show just how chilly their relationship had become.

The texts — the authenticity of which Radar has not confirmed — were revealed during the preview clip of what was being billed as an upcoming documentary based on Motes’ video diaries, Now That I Have Your Attention.

Roberts’ attorneys have since had the video taken down, insisting copyright belongs to Motes estate — but only Radar got a sneak peek!

PHOTOS: Celebs Who Died Young

Cold and to-the-point, the texts from Roberts — sent in early November 2013 – read “If you plan on seeing Mom in the next 2 weeks you should go in the next hour. Thanks.”

As Radar has reported, Roberts’ mom, Betty Lou Motes, has been fighting a breast cancer battle since around that time.

“We’re heading to see her now,” Roberts’ sister wrote. “Thanks”

But instead of offering sisterly support, Roberts responded curtly, “Please be gone by 3:30.”

More than a week later, Roberts apparently tried to keep Motes from visiting their mom. “We will text you when Mom’s surgery is scheduled,” she wrote.

Her sister responded, “Mom asked me to come to the hospital. I’m coming.”

But Roberts insisted, “She is asleep. She has to get an x ray and isn’t even admitted to the hospital yet. She is only allowed 1 person with her.”

As Radar has reported, the sisters’ cold war exploded into a public feud not long after these texts were sent, with Motes slamming her sis on Twitter.

“Just so you all know,” she wrote in one post, “America’s Sweetheart is a b*tch!”



By February 9, Motes was dead of an apparent drug overdose, allegedly leaving a bitter suicide note as her last words to her famous sister.

this is really awful, selling private texts concerning an old woman's health is horrible. nancy was really a disturbed and obsessive person.
