Julia Roberts slammed as 'diva', rude' and 'possessive' by own sister-in-law
Jyl Moder, Julia Roberts' sister-in-law, mentioned in her rehab diary that the actress is to be held responsible for her brother's broken marriage.
Julia Roberts has been accused by her sister-in-law Jyl Moder, for being responsible for the break up of Danny Moder's first marriage 16 years back. The allegations imprinted in the 52-year-old costume designer's rehab diary paints a rather dark picture of the 'Pretty Woman' actress. At one point Jyl mentions about Roberts saying she "broke up a marriage, treated me and still treats me like s**t."
Jyl Moder kept these diaries as a part of a "sobriety process" at the rehab center, which Julia and her husband Danny Moder paid for, of course. The luxury facility cost them $500 a day. Jyl's confessions reflected her deep-grown disgust towards the actress as she also accused her of all that has gone wrong with the family. Patients at the rehab center have reportedly claimed that the 52-year-old is obsessed with the couple. Jyl, who was very close to her brother's former wife, Vera Steimberg, wrote: "Diva, rude, so possessive of Danny, horrible to my father, accused me of selling stories, divided our family in the middle, condescending in front of the family." Radar has a copy of the diaries.
However, probably Jyl hasn't got it all wrong. Controversies have always hovered over the couple ever since they first started dating in 2001; Danny was already married to his first wife and make-up artist Vera Steimberg. Back in 2002, there were several rumors that Julia offered Vera, $10,000 to leave Danny. Apparently. Vera was not ready to step down from her already broken marriage without putting up a fight, and soon Julia went public with her views on Vera; she was spotted wearing a homemade t-shirt which had "A Low Vera" printed on it.
It was assumed to be a "diva-esque" public message to her lover's then-wife, according to Mirror. However, over the years Julia and Danny only grew stronger as a couple, and are now parents to three children- the 12-year-old twins, Hazel and Phinnaeus (Finn), and a 10-year-old son, Henry.
Jyl Moder always had a troubled past. Despite her brother's successful relationship with Julia Roberts, she never appeared to be on good terms with the couple, especially Julia. In 2015, Jyl was reportedly arrested with a charge for domestic violence after she beat up her boyfriend at a bar. Although the charges had been allegedly dropped, Jyl resorted to Facebook to maintain her innocence regarding the "misunderstanding" which she deemed "mortifying." She wrote: "If you did not hear, I got arrested...had an argument with, my guy and I went to jail. Indio...". She indirectly hinted that being related to a celebrity bloated the incident as it came under everyone's notice.
She wrote: "Because I am related to a celebrity, it got out everywhere...I am not a violent person. People that knew me would say the same. I am embarrassed and mortified. I feel I have to defend myself...There was no bar fight, I am just trying to set the record straight. I know in my Heart and Soul I am a good person. God Bless!!!" Reportedly, Jyl also blames Julia for the death of her mother Patti, who died of heart attack in 2011.
