julia roberts half sis found dead

So sad—especially since we've lost so many to drugs in recent months!

Nancy Motes, the half-sister of Julia Roberts and Eric Roberts, has been found dead of an apparent drug overdose.

In a statement released today, Julia's rep revealed the untimely fate of her 37-year-old sister:

"It is with deep sadness that the family of Nancy Motes… confirms that she was found dead in Los Angeles yesterday of an apparent drug overdose. There is no official report from the Coroner's office yet. The family is both shocked and devastated."

Julia decided not to attend today's Oscars luncheon to be with her family in the wake of this devastating news.

We continue to pray for all those directly impacted by this unfortunate passing.

    Oh yes, Julia Roberts - America's sweetheart. Cheated with a married man and then made fun of his wife in public and called her sister a disgusting fat pig. This woman is a real gem.

    Yes, disturbing deaths lately due to drug use… but have you asked yourselves why?
    PAPARAZZIs, STOP STALKING and maybe one day they won't feel the need to get high and be brave in front of your cameras!
