Julia Roberts pisses off her inlaws

Julia Roberts’ inlaws are said to be annoyed that she didn’t tell them she was pregnant again before officially announcing it to the world. They don’t have the best relationship with Roberts after she broke up their son’s first marriage and then ridiculed his wife for not granting a divorce fast enough. It was a big snub to them that she didn’t tell them personally about her pregnancy news before everyone else found out. In fact they didn’t even know she was getting fertility treatments:

Julia Roberts’ pregnancy has caused another war with hubby Danny Moder’s family.

The family feud is back on because Julia released news of her latest pregnancy to the public before informing her in-laws, say sources.

Danny’s brother and sisters are livid because she not only hid the pregnancy news from them, but also kept trips to a nearby Los Angeles fertility specialist under wraps, reveals an insider.

“The Moders are so angry over the sub that they haven’t even called to congratulate Julia.”
They’ve had a rocky relationship with her since 2001, when she started an affair with Danny, who was then married.
“The had come to a truce – especially since the birth of Julia’s twins in 2004 – but it’s become a cold war once again,” said the insider.

The article goes on to claim that Roberts is hurt that none of her in-laws have congratulated her on the pregnancy, despite the fact that she didn’t tell them about it.

There was a story last week that Julia and Danny were having trouble in their marriage over the fact that Roberts’ career isn’t going well. She was said to be whiny and needy, complaining to Moder that she supported his career while she was taking care of their twins and that it was about time he stepped up to the plate to assist with her comeback.

I don’t know what’s true, but it seems pretty likely that she might be fighting with her in-laws.

Word has it that Roberts is pregnant with a little boy, and that she’s not expecting twins again despite the rumors after she bought two identical cribs.

    God forbid a woman keep her fertility treatments secret. Doesn’t Julia know that she is required by law to tell her in-laws everything that happens to/near/around her vagina?

    The nerve of some people.

  2. Jenna says:

    Consedreing everything that’s happened, I highly doubt she will ever have a good realtionship with the in-laws. That said, it is her choice to tell or not tell whomever she pleases about her pregnancy/fertility treatments.

  3. Bex says:

    I think the only thing that matters, really, is what decision she and her husband came to together. It’s his parents, for cryin’ out loud, why didn’t he say something to them? Why does the girl always have to bear the brunt of these things?

    After a miscarriage, I hid the fact that I was pregnant with my son to his family until I was 3 months along. When I was pregnant the first time and miscarried, my sister-in-law had gotten too carried away with this baby and when it was gone, it caused a “discomfort”. Yes..she was miffed that I kept her out of the loop but 12 years later, she’s nuts about me and my son. I’m surprised this family still holds this marriage break-up thing against her. Julia carried two kids inside her for 9 months for this loser. Come on! Forgive and forget for heaven’s sake.

  5. Other Karen says:

    I can see her not telling them about the fertility treatments, given her fame. She probably keeps a tight clamp on all potential hot news.

    She should have told the family of the pregnancy before the media though; that’s just courtesy.

  6. Iva says:

    Why are Julia’s in-laws mad at her – why not THEIR SON??? Why make it Julia’s responsibility to call her husbands parents – if he were any kind of son – he would have picked up the phone and called them himself.

    So by that right, everyone should get over their grudge against Angelina, right? 😉

  8. Poor Boopie says:

    I agree with Iva. Isn’t Danny responsible for informing his parents of these things or does it all fall on the wife now?

  9. okay.... says:

    I don’t care—I hate Julia
    That stunt she pulled with the “a low Vera” t-shirt was beyond crass. The woman is a bitch.

  10. Suri says:

    Hmm… where did that red-headed kid come from? They should have made sure the petri dish was cleaner this time!

  11. just me says:

    What’s the big deal? The only thing that should matter is that the baby is healthy. Why do inlaws get so up tight about shit like this?
