She Was One OF The Hollywood Elite, Now She Is Living On The Streets And….
"Baywatch" star Jeremy Jackson's ex-wife, who went missing a few years ago, has been found living on the streets of Los Angeles.
The former swimsuit model, who has been homeless for over six years, was photographed for the first time in months in LA's Venice district. Loni Willison, 38, was seen searching through trash cans while dragging a shopping cart laden with what appeared to be her belongings through the streets as others watched on.
A series of photos were published on Saturday by The Sun. Speaking with the outlet, the 37-year-old former fitness model said she had all she needed to survive.
"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," she said. "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."
The former model was photographed begging for change on the streets of LA. She had a carriage with her ragged belongings. She wore a mismatched outfit complete with a red baseball cap. She was seen smoking a cigarette and donning a short haircut and leather fingerless gloves when photographed on the street.
She added that nobody really cares about her and she doesn’t want to see anybody and nobody wants to meet her.
Willison further said that she has no cell phone but she has food and a place to sleep. The former magazine Covergirl said that she gets money from here and there and there is food in the bins and near the stores. Willison disappeared in October 2018 after her friends tried to get her into rehab.
According to The Sun’s report, she is battling drug and alcohol addiction and also has mental health issues. Loni Willison married Jeremy Jackson in 2012 but they later parted ways after Jeremy reportedly attacked her at their West Hollywood home.
More details from AWM:
Before her glamorous life came crashing down around her, Willison was a cover girl for the Australian Glam Fit magazine. However, the drug addiction and ensuing mental health struggles have made it very challenging for her to stay on her feet.
Willison’s life fell apart after she could no longer hold a job. When she stopped making rent payments on her apartment, she was evicted and forced to live on the streets. Her fall from grace occurred after her divorce from Jeremy Jackson was finalized in 2014.
“I lost two jobs, and everything crumbled. It’s been two years. I’ve been on the streets since,” she said. “I’d split from Jeremy at that time. I have not had any contact with him. All the s**t that’s happened to me has been so f*****g crazy.”
Previously, Daily Mail contacted a drug rehab expert who offered to help Loni get back on her feet for free. This was drug rehab specialist Larry Marinelli, the owner of True Intentions sober living home and also the co-founder of True Hope Calling, which helps families cope with substance abuse.
Although Marinelli offered to help Loni and gave her the plan to help her battle her addiction, she refused and was back on the street within twenty-four hours.
