Star Trek icon Nichelle Nichols' friends are furious at her son, Kyle Johnson, for selling the actress' home and refusing to allow them to see her.

Nichols and Johnson are pictured above at the 18th annual Official Star Trek Convention at the Rio Hotel & Casino on July 31, 2019 in Las Vegas.

Nichelle's longtime friend, Angelique Fawcette, and former manager, Gilbert Bell, previously criticized Johnson for what they claim is mismanagement of his mother's conservatorship.

Nichols, pictured on March 5, 2021, suffers from dementia, and Johnson was appointed conservator of his mother and her estate in 2019.

But the news only came to light after Bell shared upsetting video footage with an Atlanta television outlet that shows the 88-year-old actress screaming.

In the video, Nichols could be heard screaming after seeing what her former representative claimed were legal guardianship documents.

Now, The Los Angeles Times reports that Johnson has sold his mother's former mansion in Woodland Hills, California, for nearly $2.2 million.

Fawcette and Bell are furious. They claim Johnson sold the mansion without his mother's knowledge and moved her to a small rental property in New Mexico.

"She's been like a mother to me," Fawcette said of Nichols, pictured with the Star Trek cast in 1979.

"It's been horrendous. It's been painful to watch her go through this experience," said Fawcette.

"When the house was sold, I was very hurt for her. She has no place to go back to anymore. It hurt me because I knew that it would hurt her. She stated that she wanted to remain in her home, yet the court let her son move her out."

Bell adds:

"Her home is gone. It's been sold out from under her. She would be horrified if she knew that. She was proud of (the house). She designed it. She helped build it. She planted the trees on it. It was a dream come true for her."

Meanwhile, Johnson tells The Los Angeles Times in an email the proceeds of the sale have been added to his mother's conservatorship account, and that she is living with him at the rental property in New Mexico.

"We have moved here, and we're going to remain here," he said, explaining their rental home is "a little more modest than being in Los Angeles, but meeting our needs."

But Nichols' friends, who claim they have not been allowed to visit her since 2019, remain heartbroken.

"This is a very special woman," Bell concludes.

Fawcette adds, "I will always keep my promise to fight for Nichelle."

Britney Spears' father, Jamie Spears, has agreed to step down after 13 years as her estate conservator.

The shocking announcement comes after a California judge denied Britney's motion to remove her father as her conservator last month.

Britney filed a motion to remove her father from the controlling role he has held over her for 13 years.

Her new lawyer, Mathew Rosengart, argued that Jamie Spears' presence caused his client anxiety and many sleepless nights.

In new legal documents, Jamie's lawyer revealed his client is tired of the "unremitting" and "unjustified attacks" by Britney's vocal supporters and members of his own family.

Court documents obtained by TMZ read:

"There are, in fact, no actual grounds for suspending or removing Mr. Spears as the Conservator of the Estate... and it is highly debatable whether a change in conservator at this time would be in Ms. Spears' best interests.

"Nevertheless, even as Mr. Spears is the unremitting target of unjustified attacks, he does not believe that a public battle with his daughter over his continuing service as her conservator would be in her best interests. So, even though he must contest this unjustified Petition for his removal, Mr. Spears intends to work with the Court and his daughter's new attorney to prepare for an orderly transition to a new conservator."

The lawyer adds:

"Regardless of his formal title, Mr. Spears will always be Ms. Spears' father, he will always love her unconditionally, and he will always look out for her best interests."

Rosengart responded to the news by telling TMZ:

"We are pleased but not necessarily surprised that Mr. Spears and his lawyer finally recognize that he must be removed. We are disappointed, however, by their ongoing shameful and reprehensible attacks on Ms. Spears and others..."

Back in June, when Britney first testified against her father, she said her conservatorship had left her "traumatized" and "depressed", and she called for her father to be jailed.

She argued that her father controls every aspect of her life including who she can date and whether she can have more children. Britney, a mom-of-two, is forced to wear an IUD for birth control. The singer who is worth $60 million receives a $2,000 weekly allowance.

"They have me going to therapy three times a week and to a psychiatrist... I truly believe this conservatorship is abusive," she told the court. "I don't feel like I can live a full life... I need your help. My dad and anyone involved in this conservatorship, including my management... they should be in jail."

The FBI is investigating death threats sent by Britney's fans to Los Angeles Country Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny, who is Black.

Britney is best known for her pop hits "Baby One More Time" and "Oops!...I Did it Again," which each sold over 20 million copies worldwide.

A California judge has denied Britney Spears' motion to remove her father Jamie Spears as her conservator.

During an emotional hearing last week, Britney and her lawyer pleaded with Judge Brandy Penny to remove Jamie as her conservator of 13 years.

She argued that her father controls every aspect of her life including who she can date and whether she can have children. Britney, a mom-of-two, is forced to wear an IUD for birth control. The singer who is worth $60 million receives a $2,000 weekly allowance.

But Los Angeles Country Superior Court Judge Penny, who is Black, has now denied the request. "The conservatee's request to suspend James P Spears ... is denied without prejudice," she said in her ruling.

Britney's dad was initially put in charge as a co-conservator of her personal and professional affairs in 2008, following her infamous mental health breakdown.

However, he has not overseen her personal and business dealings in years due to his failing health and alcoholism.

Jamie Spears lives in an RV trailer in Louisiana near a storage unit that contains memorabilia from his daughter's pop music career.

He reportedly relinquished part of his control over Britney to Jodi Montgomery, the person Britney's own lawyer, Sam Ingham, recently requested to be appointed the star's only conservator.

However, Judge Penny denied the motion on Wednesday.

After hearing the disappointing news, Britney posted videos on social media that shows her dancing in heels and changing into three different two-piece bikinis. The 39-year-old singer's still flawless bod stunned her 31 million followers.

"How in the world could anyone endure what she has been enduring? Thirteen years of bondage - this is exactly what it is," Warwick said. "Bondage is not something 2021 should even recognize. Give her back her rights, give her back her life. Set her free."

Wendy Williams shocked her studio audience and viewers at home when she wished death on Britney Spears' parents.

Wendy made the remarks during Thursday's 'Wendy Williams Show' following Britney's appearance via Zoom at a conservatorship hearing.

The pop singer asked a judge to end her father's 13-year conservatorship over her personal and financial affairs.

Wendy showed support for Britney by condemning her parents for not giving their daughter her independence.

"How dare you, Mr. Spears. You had me fooled. And you too, Mrs. Spears. DEATH to all of them," Wendy said, as the audience gasped.

Wendy's remark was scrubbed from Thursday's episode that was uploaded to the 'Wendy Williams Show' official YouTube channel on Thursday evening.

Social media users chastised the mom-of-one for wishing death on other parents.

One Twitter user wrote:

"You went too far, @WendyWilliams. Support #FreeBritney, but you cannot wish death to anyone. Not cool and not ground anyone has the right to stand on."

Another user wrote:

"Giving ur opinion on the topic is 1 thing but saying "DEATH. ALL OF U." is a BIT MUCH."

And a third user wrote:

"Dear @WendyWilliams before you wish for the death of Mr. Spears you better apologize to Britney Spears first. You bashed brit so many times on your show, gaslit her and said she was ill in the head and she needs the cship! #FreeBritney."

In a lighthearted moment on Friday, Wendy commented on the upcoming Bow Wow, Soulja Boy Verzuz lipsync competition.

Wendy asked her viewers to watch the Verzuz and report back to her, as she has no plans to watch the show herself.

She added:

"Then I'm gonna tune in... Sandra Rose and MediaTakeout - Fred - make sure that you post so that I can follow what is all going on. Just sayin'."

Justin Timberlake was among the celebrities showing support for singer Britney Spears after she spoke against her conservatorship in court on Wednesday.

Justin expressed his "absolute support" for his ex-girlfriend, after she asked a judge to end her father's conservatorship over her personal and financial affairs.

Speaking via telephone to a judge in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Britney, 39, said her father Jamie Spears has been acting as her conservator to control her personal and business affairs for the last 13 years.

Britney has accused her father of being an alcoholic who forced her to get an IUD, controlled who she slept with, and even told her which color to paint her kitchen cabinets.

The pop singer, who is worth $60 million, is given $2,000 a week allowance and does not have control over her own finances.

She has been under conservatorship since her well-publicized public meltdown in 2008, and was hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for mental health evaluations.

In the meantime, I want this therapist to come to my home, I'm not willing to go to Westlake ... They set me up by sending me to the most exposed places. I need your help.

"My dad and anyone involved in this conservatorship, including my management … they should be in jail."

Britney - who shares sons Sean, 15, and Jayden, 14, with her ex-husband Kevin Federline - claims her conservators made her get an IUD (intrauterine device) as a form of birth control, even though she wants to "get married and have a baby" with her boyfriend Sam Asghari.

In a series of tweets on Wednesday, Justin Timberlake -- who dated Britney from 1999 to 2002, wrote:

"After what we saw today, we should all be supporting Britney at this time. Regardless of our past, good and bad, and no matter how long ago it was... what's happening to her is just not right.

"No woman should ever be restricted from making decisions about her own body. No one should EVER be held against their will... or ever have to ask permission to access everything they've worked so hard for."

Justin's wife Jessica Biel also shared her support, and the pair are hoping the courts and Britney's family "let her live however she wants to live".

He tweeted: "Jess and I send our love, and our absolute support to Britney during this time. We hope the courts, and her family make this right and let her live however she wants to live."

Singer Halsey wrote on Twitter:

"Bless Britney and I hope with my whole heart she is awarded freedom from this abusive system. She deserves it more than anything. I admire her courage speaking up for herself today.

"Additionally, f**k anyone who thinks they have the authority as an institution or individual to control a person's reproductive health. #FreeBritney."
