“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. 

Loni added: “I haven’t got a cell phone. I’ve got food and I’ve got a place to sleep.

Who is Jeremy Jackson?

Jeremy Jackson, 40, is best known for his role as Hobie Buchannon on Baywatch.

He landed his big break on the show at age 10.

The show ran from 1991 to 1999 and made Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff extremely popular at the time.

Jeremy had been in the Hollywood scene since he was six-years-old as he starred in commercials and small roles.

However, fame at a young age led Jackson to become hooked on sex, alcohol and crystal meth in later years.

The former child star, who has battled addiction issues, is now a leading figure in LA’s fitness scene.

Recent posts on his social media show him shirtless celebrating his 40th birthday with friends.

When asked two years ago about Loni, he replied: “All I can tell you is that my attention, my time, my focus is where I can be most effective and we’re doing all right.”

After he left Baywatch, he had problems with drugs and booze, later saying: “I smoked pot every day, and I did cocaine until it stopped working.”

When he was 19-years-old, he was charged with drug possession and intent to sell, serving 90 days in jail.

He told Celebrity Rehab With Dr Drew: “I had the fame, I had the girls, I had the money, and I threw it away.

In April 2015, he was arrested for allegedly stabbing a man Westlake, California, then fleeing the scene. 

The charges were reportedly dropped.

He was arrested again in August that year after a woman claimed he stabbed her in the back, arm and leg during an argument about her boyfriend’s car.

Jeremy was later sentenced to 270 days in jail and put on probation for five years.
