Julia Roberts has suffered an 'emotional breakdown' after her mother was diagnosed with cancer just prior to the actor's half-sister Nancy Motes committing suicide, according to reports.

Doctors found a cancerous tumor on Betty's lung during a routine MRI scan and everyone went frantic with the sad news, the Mirror reported.

According to a source, the 46-year-old actor asked her mother to shift her base to her Malibu home and changed her mother's phone number and locked her inside her house which affected her half-sister Nancy.

The Pretty Woman star, who was shattered after learning of her mother's disease, has plunged further down after her sister's death.
