BAYWATCH star Jeremy Jackson's ex wife Loni Willison has been spotted rummaging through bins for food after becoming homeless.
The 39 year-old has fallen on hard times in the last seven years, living on the streets of Los Angeles after battling addiction issues following the collapse of her marriage.
Former fitness model Loni was snapped wandering the streets of Santa Monica, California pushing an overflowing shopping trolley while looking in giant bins for leftovers.
Loni looked a far cry from just a few years ago, when she was regularly seen on the red carpet with her TV star ex, Jeremy.
While she once sported long blonde longs and posed on the cover of magazines such as Australia's Glam Fit, her hair now appears to be cropped under her trucker cap.
Loni also appeared to be missing several teeth as she made her way around the area, which has seen homeless rates soar in recent years since the pandemic.

How Loni Willison went from model to homeless addict after Baywatch star ‘attack’
She has been battling an addiction to crystal meth and alcohol, as well as mental health issues.
Loni married Jeremy in 2012, but they split after a series of booze-fuelled rows which culminated in him allegedly attacking her at their West Hollywood home.
Loni, whose last job was as an assistant at an LA cosmetic surgery center, had a mental breakdown in 2016 then lost her job, apartment and car, ending up living rough on the streets.
Speaking to The Sun back in 2020, Loni told us: “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.”

added: “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.
“I haven’t got a cell phone. I’ve got food and I’ve got a place to sleep.
“I get money here and there and there’s food in the bins and near the stores. There’s lots here.”
Loni’s ex Jeremy played Hobie Buchanan in Baywatch from 1991 to 1999 alongside his screen dad David Hasselhoff and stars including Pamela Anderson, Donna D’Errico and Yasmine Bleeth.
The former child star, who has himself battled addiction issues, is now a leading figure in LA’s fitness scene and recent posts on his social media show him shirtless celebrating his birthday with friends.
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.”
Aged 19, he was charged with drug possession and intent to sell, serving 90 days in jail.
In 2011, he told Celebrity Rehab With Dr Drew: “I had the fame, I had the girls, I had the money, and I threw it away.
