Was ‘Star Trek’ Actress Nichelle Nichols Screaming for Help?
Nichelle Nichols, who gained fame playing Lt. Uhura on "Star Trek," was heard screaming for help during a guardianship fight with her son. The 86-year-old actress was diagnosed last year with dementia. Video of the incident was taken by Gilbert Bell, who claimed to be Nichols' longtime friend and manager. Bell said the video shows Nichols looking over conservator documents filed in court by her son, Kyle Johnson, and saying "I'm the boss of me, Gil, he's not the boss of me."
