The tragic half sister of Julia Roberts accused the actress of driving her “into the deepest depression I’ve ever been in” just moments before she took her own life.

The damning allegation was contained in the suicide note penned by Nancy Motes just hours before she took a cocktail of drugs while in the bath.

Nancy claimed Roberts and her family’s treatment of her had been so awful she would “burst into tears every morning because I wake up”.

The former production assistant on the TV show Glee was found drowned on February 9 by her fiancé John Dilbeck in Los Angeles.

He is now involved in a bitter legal dispute with Nancy’s family for control of Nancy’s estate.

Pivotal to the case is the handwritten note Nancy, 37, had left by her side and of which details have now emerged for the first time.

The note begins with stating that anything her Dilbeck, 31, wanted her could have including her pet dog.

She starts the emotional letter saying: “If anything should happen to me John Bailey Dilbeck gets whatever he wants of my possessions & ownership of Lucy (dog).”

She then outlines she would like her jewellery shared between two friends.

However she quickly turns to her family and refuses to call them by name.

She wrote: “My mother and so-called ‘siblings’ get nothing except the memory that they are the ones that drove me into the deepest depression I’ve ever been in.

“I have suffered thru this disease all my life, however It has never been this bad.

“I burst into tears every morning b/c (because) I woke up.”

Her note has been included as part of several legal documents submitted to the courts in relation to probate of Nancy’s estate.

She had broken down the 13 page letters in to three sections, one addressed to Dilbeck, another to her mother Betty Lou Motes, 79, and Roberts, and the third to “everyone”.

However her family have not attached their letter to the court documents ensuring its contents remain private under Californian Law.

Dilbeck, who Nancy said would refer to her as a “junkie”, was the only person she singled out for praise.

She added: “John my one true love. I am so sorry but like you said I am nothing but a Junkie and you really will be better off w/out me.

“You will find someone else, someone better, someone worthy of the amazing man you are.

“I will love you forever & always.

“I hope someday you will forgive me. I truly am sorry & I know you are so mad at me.

“Please understand this is all my fault & you are are truly a man that I am so lucky to have been loved by.

“I know this will effect you the most and & I can’t apologise (sic) enough.

“I was truly so blessed & lucky to have you as my true love and best friend. I will carry you with me forever.

“And I am so sorry.”

The feud between the two half-sisters began after Nancy sold a story to a newspaper about how Roberts used to tease her about her weight.

The emergence of the note comes just two weeks after the actress was alleged to have sent a string of abusive text messages to Nancy months before she committed suicide.

Reports in the US accused the Oscar winner of “appearing to bully” Nancy as well as attacking over her weight.

According to the National Enquirer, even Julia’s own mother is alleged to have said on video she doesn’t like her millionaire daughter.

The magazine published several of the messages they claim were sent, some of which were written two days after Christmas last year.

One read: “What an interesting paradox – to be paying thousands of dollars for your obesity surgery and paying for all your McDonalds charges on Moms [sic] credit card. Life is fascinating.”

Betty was previously married to Walter Grady Roberts, who she also had actor Eric Roberts, 57 and actress Lisa Roberts Gillan, 48 with before divorcing him and giving birth to Nancy with second husband Michael Motes.

She told her followers: “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!!”

Today a spokesman for the actress failed to return calls.
