Inside the Battle of the Conservatives from ‘Star Trek’ Nichelle Nichols – .


Britney isn’t the only one fighting for control of her life.

Nichelle Nichols, the 88-year-old actress who played Lieutenant Uhura in the original “Star Trek” series, spends her final years trapped in a nasty guardianship battle involving her only child and current conservative, Kyle Johnson; his former manager Gilbert Bell; and her friend and actress Angelique Fawcette, according to a new report from the Los Angeles Times.

After successfully seeking guardianship from his mother in 2018, Johnson had a tumultuous time at his management, and he and Bell filed lawsuits accusing the other of various assaults and control actions. Fawcette, whom Nichols named as his successor, believes that despite his dementia, Nichols is able to live independently, without a conservative. She also alleges that Bell, who in 2018 attempted to marry Nichols, let her house fall into “disrepair” while he looked after her.

Amid the struggle for control of the actress’ life, she has continued to work and is moving forward with what The Los Angeles Times says some are calling a “farewell tour” hosted by Johnson and the ‘Agent Sky Conway.

Her mental state is unclear and she would have needed a teleprompter to recite lines on a recent shoot for the pilot of “Renegades: Ominara”. A Kickstarter for the sci-fi epic presents it as “Nichols’ last performance before retiring.”

His younger sister, Marian Nichols Smothers, says that despite a busy schedule, Nichols has considerable memory loss.

“I feel like I’ve lost my sister in so many ways already,” Smothers told the Los Angeles Times. “She is no longer the person she used to be, the dynamic, responsible person who takes care of everything. “

Fawcette was unable to visit her and is currently working with a lawyer to secure the right to see her friend. “She’s not getting the life she wanted,” Fawcette said. “She has the life that others have chosen for her. “
