SHOCKING VIDEO SHOWS JOLIE IN 'DRUG-ADDLED CALL TO DAD'
Shocking video footage has emerged of Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie that appears to show her in the throes of a drug-addled ramble.
The short clip reveals a very different image of the Maleficent star (39), with blood-shot eyes and emaciated and scratched arms.
She's now one of the world's most-respected actresses and humanitarians, but she has spoken before of how she went through a "dark and dangerous" period in her earlier life.
The mum-of-six is seen pacing around her living room in the video as she picks at her skin with dirty fingernails during an alleged phone conversation with her father Jon Voight.
Looking painfully thin, her dishevelled appearance speaks volumes about her state of mind at the time.
Convicted drug dealer Franklin Meyer claims he shot the 16-minute footage back in 1999 after she asked him to call to her Manhattan home to supply her with heroin and cocaine.
The footage was filmed at the same time as she gave one of her most acclaimed performances in Girl, Interrupted, when she was dating former hubbie Billy Bob Thornton.
She can be seen looking agitated and sounds distressed during her phone conversation.
Meyer, who claims he shot the footage with her consent, told the National Enquirer: "Angie was a client of mine for several years. I sold her heroin and cocaine. One day she called me up and wanted me to drop by her place. That was her way of telling me she wanted me to bring her drugs.
"At the time, I had just bought a video camera and decided to bring it along."
He claims Jolie was talking to her famous father about her brother James and her late mother Marcheline Bertrand.
She can be heard saying: "The thing is, you know, it's that idea trying to get a house or a room for everybody. It's not, it's just not necessary."
The actress then adds: "You know, I don't want this to ruin our relationship.
"And I don't want it to be this thing where, you know, we go out to do something or to dinner or go shopping and you know, or her coming out to visit, and not buying something for herself."
Meyer alleges that he would see Jolie two or three times a week.
They would either meet at her flat or at a hotel and each time she would usually spend about $100 on heroin or cocaine.
