More details continue to surface about the death of Julia Roberts‘ half-sister Nancy Motes -- and has learned that some surviving family members believe the Oscar-wining actress' relentless taunting may have led to Motes’ untimely overdose death.

Conner Dilbeck, the brother of Motes’ fiancé, John Dilbeck, spoke to Inside Edition and said that Motes blamed her sisters – Julia and Lisa Roberts Gillan – in the suicide notes she left behind.

“In the letter, it said, ‘My sisters drove me to do this,’ and she had no other option, she thought, than to do this,” Conner said.

Conner claimed Roberts “fat shamed” her half-sister, which eventually led to Motes feeling that “she had no other way out.”

Roberts was not a Pretty Woman inside, he claimed, because the constant taunting of her younger sibling about her weight led the woman to take drastic measures just to erase her embarrassment about her extra pounds.

“The truth is she bullied her sister. Julia Roberts didn’t want to have a fat sister,” Conner shockingly stated.

“Sweethearts don’t do these things to their families. They don’t fat shame their families. That’s not a sweetheart, that’s a monster.”

As we previously reported, Motes was found dead at 37 on Feb.9 in what officials indicated was a suicide via overdose, with Los Angeles County Coroner’s Assistant Chief Ed Winter confirming that numerous “notes were found at the scene,” as well as “both prescription and nonprescription pills.”

Toxicology tests remain pending in Motes’ death, Winter said, adding the results could take up to 10 weeks.

Watch Conner's interview below, which will air in full on Monday, Feb. 17 on Inside Edition.
