Hollywood icon Nichelle Nichols who is best known for playing Liutenant Uhura in Stark Trek, is currently suffering from short-term memory loss. Her son explained that the progress is so severe that she requires protection from being taken advantage of.
According to the Daily Mail, the actress' son, Kyle Johnson, officially filed legal documents on Friday nominating four fiduciaries to become his mother's consevators, giving them executive control over her financial and health-related decisions.
Johnson claimed that his 85-year-old mother's ' dementia is "impacting her executive functioning" and makes her "susceptible to undue influence."
"Certain individuals have unduly exerted themselves into Ms. Nichols' life to her detriment," he said.
Despite her current state, Nichols continues to work in Hollywood, with three projects set to be released later this year.
