PHOTOS :Julia Roberts Breaks Down Crying On Set Amid Rumors Of Marriage Trouble

“Jyl had been in expensive rehabs, but never taken them seriously,” tattled a source.

The worried couple even staged an intervention, but Jyl’s problems persisted.

In 2015 she was arrested and held on $50,000 bail for a domestic violence charge  after brawling with her then live-in boyfriend in a bar.

Last year, Jyl was tossed out of her home in Palm Desert, Calif., for causing problems with neighbors and leaving garbage outside.

The seemingly endless embarrassing episodes caused friction between Julia and Danny, and the actress made it clear that she was close to done with bailing out her troubled sister-in-law.

After Julia demanded that they change tactics, Jyl entered a hardcore facility costing around $3,000 a month — and the tough love approach seems to have paid off, according to insiders.

“This time, Jyl realized that she had to take it seriously!” a source spilled.

She’s just celebrated a year of sobriety and is working with other patients at a sober living facility in L.A., according to insiders.

But sources claim Julia and Jyl’s relationship remains on shaky ground.

That’s because Jyl remains close to Danny’s ex-wife, Vera, and she’s also an unpleasant reminder of Julia’s half-sister, Nancy Motes, who battled addiction before a fatal overdose in 2014.

“Jyl kept a diary that other patients read when she was out one day,” squealed a source.

“They thought it was a script or book she was writing, but it was just notes — and Julia featured in them heavily.”

Jyl had been keeping the diary as part of her “sobriety process” in an effort to “make amends with Julia and offer an olive branch,” said a source.

“Everything is good with my life right now,” Jyl told Radar at her L.A. home.

She brushed off talk of rehab and said: “It has been a long time now that I’ve been sober.”

Asked if she had patched things up with Danny and Julia, she played coy.

“My family is good right now, I don’t have anything else to say about them,” she said “My family is good, everything is fine and I’m doing lots of positive things.”
