The fiancé of Julia Roberts’ half-sister Nancy Motes is coming forward following the tragic death of his wife-to-be.
After Nancy was found dead of an apparent drug overdose on Sunday, word spread of a suicide note that was left behind that blamed Julia for driving her to do this!
John Dilbeck, who was engaged to Nancy, wants the world to know though that she loved each and every member of her family, despite the supposed note and cryptic tweets that Motes posted on Twitter last year.
In a statement, Dilbeck broke his silence, saying:
"John Dilbeck and his extended family would like to express their heartfelt condolences to all of Nancy Motes' family and friends. 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.”
It was back in October that Nancy wrote some pretty harsh words about Roberts on Twitter, including calling her a bitch! She tweeted:
"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 also blasted her family as a whole, sharing:
"It's a shame when you get more support from strangers than you do from your family. I can't wait to officially belong to another family!”
The past is in the past though. Losing a loved one like this is such a hard ordeal to go through. Our hearts go out to Julia Roberts and her family.
