“Star Trek” icon Nichelle Nichols was caught on a disturbing recording screaming for her life amid a battle with her son over her estate.
The 86-year-old actress, who suffers from dementia, can be heard repeatedly shrieking “No!” in the video obtained by CBS46 in Atlanta.
“You’re trying to get rid of me!” the woman, believed to be Nichols, shouts.
Nichols is best known for her portrayal of Lieutenant Nyota Uhura, whose groundbreaking onscreen kiss with Captain James Kirk came just one year after the US Supreme Court deemed interracial marriage legal.
Nichols’ son, Kyle Johnson, has filed for legal guardianship over her — though close friends of the aging actress claim he has bad intentions.
Gilbert Bell, who claims to be Nichols’ close friend and manager, gave the local network the video, which shows her poring over documents.
It was shot on April 23.
“I didn’t give permission to have conservatorship over me. I didn’t know what he was doing,” she says.
Johnson then comes into the room and is heard telling Nichols, “Mother, we are going home” — prompting her to yell, “Help! No! No! No!”
Johnson told CBS46 that his mother doesn’t have a manager, but declined to refute the recording or the allegations against him.
