JULIA ROBERTS PORN SCANDAL

Published on: January 20, 2005

Julia Roberts is being rocked by a porn scandal.

The new mother has endured a health crisis with one of her newborn twins, family feuds and nanny problems -- and now she must come to grips with a dark family secret.

The "Ocean's Twelve" beauty is disgusted that an uncle of her adorable twins is a major porn merchant -- dealing in some of the sleaziest hard-core filth, say sources.

RAUNCHY MOVIES
"Julia was furious when she found out that Steve Stone -- who is married to her husband Danny's older sister Debbie -- is a West Coast distributor of XXX-rated sex DVDs and magazines," revealed an insider.

"He's selling some of the raunchiest hard-core movies in the adult video market -- including the Paris Hilton sex tape, 'One Night In Paris'!"

Stone's company, headquartered in San Francisco, distributes porn to adult entertainment stores from California to Florida, The ENQUIRER has discovered.

Aware of Julia's feelings, Stone has avoided visiting since the birth of her babies, revealed the insider.

"When Debbie went to the hospital to visit Julia and see her new niece and nephew, Steve remained in the lobby. He knew Julia didn't want him anywhere near her precious twins."

Julia's devoted husband Danny is also steamed at Stone, says the insider.

"Danny is upset with him since learning that Stone recently brought his own 19-year-old son, Danny's nephew, into the porn trade.

"Danny's also worried that Stone will drag his younger son, who's only 16, into the business. "The two men went head-to-head at a recent family get together, after Danny learned that Stone was training his son to sell smut."

Debbie Moder and Steve Stone, former high school sweethearts, have been married close to 20 years, and the Moder family has long considered the porn profiteer to be a skeleton in the family closet, said the insider.

The situation intensified when Julia learned about Stone bringing his teenage son into the sordid business.

LIVID STAR
"Julia was livid and she let Danny know it," divulged a source close to the Moder family.

"Stone gave his son his own route -- delivering X-rated video titles to stores in Southern California."

But Stone doesn't care what anyone thinks about his highly lucrative business -- including the "Pretty Woman" star, says the close source.

"He's not going to change for anyone -- even Julia Roberts. "He's not ashamed of what he does for a living. He is proud of it.

"I went to dinner with him once, and afterward he gave me three or four hardcore sex videos right out of the trunk of his car.

"Steve is the rebel in the family -- and Julia hates everything about his line of work."
