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:
Anyone who has ever tried to lose a significant amount of weight knows that it's just as much a mental game as it is a physical game — so we're not shocked to hear that Rob Kardashian's struggles are bringing him down.
