'Baywatch' star Jeremy Jackson's ex-wife found living on LA streets after missing for 2 years: 'Nobody cares'
The former model was spotted with a trolley, which contained her belongings, and she reportedly went through dumpsters and trash cans behind multi-million dollar homes
Baywatch star Jeremy Jackson's ex-wife, who used to be a fitness model and had featured on the cover of popular fitness magazines, was found living on the streets in Los Angeles. Loni Willison, 37, who has been found after missing for two years refused any help and told The Sun, "I haven’t spoken to Jeremy. I don’t want to speak to my friends, I’m doing just fine. I don’t want anyone to help me."
The former model was spotted with a trolley, which contained her belongings, and she reportedly went through dumpsters and trash cans behind multi-million dollar homes in Los Angeles' Venice district. "I can live on my own. I’ve got everything I need right here. Nobody really cares about me and I don’t want to see them, they don’t want to see me," she said. She further added, "I haven’t got a cell phone. I’ve got food and I’ve got a place to sleep. I get money here and there and there’s food in the bins and near the stores. There’s lots here."
The former model had disappeared in 2018 after her friends tried but failed to get her into rehab. She now has missing teeth, struggles with an addiction to alcohol and crystal meth and is suffering from mental health issues.
She split from Jackson in 2012 after a series of rows under the influence of alcohol that culminated in him allegedly attacking her at their West Hollywood home. She had a mental breakdown in 2016 when she held a job as an assistant at an LA cosmetic surgery center. However, after her breakdown, she ended up on the streets where she has lived all this while.
Jackson, her ex-husband, celebrated his 40th birthday on the day she was found and the former child actor also dealt with his share of addiction issues. At present, however, he has earned a name for himself in the world of fitness and his social media accounts were filled with pictures of him with his friends and family. Two years ago, when the star who played the role of Hobie Buchanan from 1991 to 1999 in 'Baywatch' was asked about his ex, he had said, "All I can tell you is that my attention, my time, my focus is where I can be most effective and we're doing all right."
In 2011, Jackson had confessed on Celebrity Rehab with Dr Drew, "I had the fame, I had the girls, I had the money, and I threw it away." He added, "My drug of choice was crystal meth, and it was big-time downhill from that point on. I was drinking, doing coke, chasing this high with girls and sex. It was out of control."
Over the years, Jackson has faced multiple charges and has been to jail for possession and distribution of drugs, stabbing a woman during an argument among other things. He appeared on 2015's 'Celebrity Big Brother' in the UK after his stints at the rehab, however, he was kicked out o the show after he opened model Chloe Goodman’s robe.
