Julia Roberts' half sister was found dead from an apparent drug overdose Sunday.
Motes, 37, was the daughter of Roberts' mother, Betty Lou, and stepfather, Michael Motes and the youngest sister of Julia and brother Eric Roberts.
Motes and Roberts had a rocky relationship, judging from the exclusive interview Motes gave to the nydailynews.com over the summer. She said her Oscar-winner sister used to tease her about her weight. Motes weighed more than 300 pounds before she had gastric bypass surgery.
