Just one year after Julia Roberts lost her half-sister Nancy Motes to suicide, the 'Pretty Woman' star is faced with another devastating tragedy — her mother, Betty Lou Motes, died at the age of 80 after a long battle with lung cancer on Feb. 19.
The actress was seen dressed in head-to-toe black while visiting her mother's home in West Los Angeles yesterday just hours after she passed with close friends by her side providing support and a shoulder to cry on.
The 80-year-old was reportedly living with the Oscar winner and her family in the final months of her life, but peacefully passed away at St John's Health Center in Santa Monica.
