Loni Willison: 'Baywatch' star Jeremy Jackson's ex-wife blames ‘really bad people’ for her homelessness
Willison was reportedly seen digging through trash in Santa Monica in January. It has been said that she was diagnosed with serious mental health issues but she has repeatedly refused treatment or offers for help from others
The former wife of 'Baywatch' star Jeremy Jackson, Loni Willison, has blamed her homelessness on “really bad people”. As per The Sun, she said that her homelessness was not the result of drugs or the "celebrity life", but some "really bad people." The former fitness model was missing for two years before she was found in October 2020. She has been homeless for four years.
In a heartbreaking interview, Willison said, “I’m just kind of stuck. Even if I could ask for help there is not a whole lot anyone could do. I got electrocuted before I became homeless for nine months solid, every f**king day and so I can’t stay in one spot. I can’t live in a building, I can’t live in a home, I can’t live anywhere because I have to move around constantly. I’m not going to mess up someone else’s life because people f**ked with me so I just have to wait it out and see what happens as time goes on.”
'Baywatch' star Jeremy Jackson's ex-wife found living on LA streets after missing for 2 years: 'Nobody cares'
Earlier, the 37-year-old had told The Sun that she has not “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,” before adding: “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. 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 latest statements from Willison came after she was reportedly seen digging through trash in Santa Monica in January. It has been said that she was diagnosed with serious mental health issues but she has repeatedly refused treatment or offers for help from others.
Willison and Jackson tied the knot in 2012 but got separated in 2014 after several arguments that even resulted in the 40-year-old allegedly attacking her at their West Hollywood home. After the split, the 'Baywatch' star took to Instagram to announce his divorce and saying “... I have no regrets for the mistakes I have made and my side of the street is clean." He also claimed that he was “tricked into love” in the same social media post.
As per reports, after the divorce, Willison began living in her own apartment in LA and worked as an assistant at a cosmetic surgery center. But she was sacked from the job and joined a realtor, who, according to her, did not pay her as promised. Later, she apparently had a mental breakdown and as she failed to pay her rent or car repayments after losing her jobs, she was forced to live on the streets.
Meanwhile, Jackson's other former partner, Cindy Kovacs, had spoken about Willison’s situation and said she was “appalled” by his indifference towards her condition. “He didn't give a s**t. It was appalling, sickening," Kovacs added.
