'Star Trek' star Nichelle Nichols heard 'screaming for her life while trapped'
Disturbing audio of Star Trek actress Nichelle Nichols screaming for help, amid a guardianship battle with her son, has allegedly been released to the public.
The American star, who played Lieutenant Uhura in the long-running TV series, is now 86 years old and said to be suffering from dementia.
Her comments in the concerning audio video were reportedly recorded after she found out her son had gone to court to take control over her affairs and estate.
Nichelle's close friend Gilbert Bell allegedly supplied the audio to WGCL-TV and Nichelle's long-term handlers and friends have reportedly told the station they are concerned her son has "ill intentions."
Aired by the Atlanta news station on Tuesday night, the singer can be heard shouting that she didn't give permission for her son to have conservatorship over her and she doesn't want to go home.
She then seemingly accuses her son of trying to "get rid" of her and the video ends with an incredibly distressed Nichelle releasing several harrowing screams.

In the short clip, said to be recorded on April 23, 2019, a voice said to be Nichelle is heard saying: "You get your hands off me, I'm not going home. You're trying to get rid of me. I'm the boss of me, Gil. He's not the boss of me. I didn't give permission to have conservatorship over me, because I didn't know what he was doing."
A male voice, reportedly that of her son, says: "Mother, Mother, we're going home now." The woman then screams the word "no" repeatedly, shouting: "Give me my stick! No, no, no! Get your hands off of me."
As her son tells her they are going home again, she shrieks: "I'm not going home unless you let - get rid of me. You're trying to get rid of me."
News anchor Jonathan Carlson said he spoke by phone to Nichelle's son, who claimed his mum doesn't have a management team but "declined to elaborate on that or refute these accusations or that recording".
WGCL-TV has reported that after the report aired, detectives from Los Angeles Police Department went to the Star Trek actress' home for a welfare check and interviewed both her and her son.
