Jyl Moder was previously engaged to Blaine Chaney. However, the fact that whether they got married or got separated remains under the cover. Blaine is the guitarist of the punk band The Suburbs. According to the rumors, the couple was in a problematic relationship.

Jyl used to live in Palm Desert, California with her then-fiance back in 2015. They left the place after they were served with a 90-day legal notice to vacate the premises. 

This happened because when they were together, they used to get drunk together and cause various troubles for their neighbors. There also had been records of them drinking all night and tossing the garbage out of their homes for an extended period of time. 

Alcohol Addiction Of Jyl

Jyl has a problematic history with alcohol. There was a time when she was heavily addicted to alcohol and it felt like there was no turning back. Her lengthy history of drinking problems carries its own story in her life.

Back in 2015, Jyl got arrested after striking her fiance in a pub while drunk. And the time when they were served the legal notice to leave their homes, they ignored the notice and pretended to leave the place.

With her drinking problems, Jyl often used to cause trouble for her brother Daniel Moder and her sister-in-law Julia Roberts. The problem was so big that they had to send her to rehab. And according to what we've found, the couple also paid $500k for Jyl's recovery facilities.

Jyl Used To Blame Julia Roberts For Her Brother's Divorce

The relationship between Jyl and Julia Roberts, her sister-in-law was never good. Back in time, she also blamed Julia for his divorce from his former wife Vera Steimberg. The former couple was married from 1997 to 2002.

Jyl used to believe that Julia somehow got in between the former couple and caused the cracks in their relationship and when they got divorced, Julia married Daniel instead. Maybe this misunderstanding happened because Jyl was close to Vera. 

Nonetheless, the relationship between the two of them, Jyl and Julia, is normal now. It could be because Julia was able to show that she truly cared for Daniel and Jyl. She also paid for Jyl's difficult treatment facilities which were worth $3000. And as a result, Jyl began to think of Julia in a new light.

Where Is Jyl Now?

Jyl Moder has left her career and the entertainment industry. She is living her life away from the busy life in front of cameras. She has not released any statements neither did her family, but she seems to be doing fine now. 

According to sources, Jyl celebrated a year of sobriety in rehab. So, her problematic life has probably ended and hopefully, she is pursuing a peaceful life.
