breaking news

Drew Barrymore Half Sister DeadJessica Blyth Barrymore, the half-sister of Drew Barrymore, was found dead in her car early Tuesday morning in San Diego. 

Jessica's body was discovered by one of her neighbors, who told 10News ... she had a soft drink between her legs, and there were dozens of white pills scattered on the passenger seat. 

Jessica and Drew had the same father -- John Drew Barrymore -- but they were not close. Jessica's mother is actress Nina Wayne ... who was John's 4th wife.


Through a rep, Barrymore tells TMZ, "Although I only met her briefly, I wish her and her loved ones as much peace as possible and I'm so incredibly sorry for their loss."

Jessica would have turned 48 on Thursday.

Sad to hear, but it seems like drug and alcohol problems are a birthright of the Barrymore family.

Why would Drew only meet her once? What a bitch it's her own blood.

Drew only met her once? Nasty. That's probably why Jessica was on pills. Her own blood didn't want anything to do with her. Sad

For those that think it strange Drew didn't really know her sister, it is common when the father is the common denominator. I have 4 half-sisters on the East coast I have never met at all. There is no bond when the parent makes no effort for you to know the sibling.

Why do they say half sister of Drew Barrymore ,the father determines the paternity so that makes her , her real sister.

I hope Drew didn't kill her sister, or have someone else do it then plant the body in a car so no one would know a secret about her past.
