Former BAYWATCH star YASMINE BLEETH is destroying herself with a titanic drug problem, claim her worried friends.
They have reportedly told American tabloid THE NATIONAL ENQUIRER that the gorgeous brunette is dropping weight, suffering nosebleeds and exhibiting other shocking signs of a serious addiction to cocaine.
And frightened pals fear, if the 32-year-old stunner doesn't stop, she'll kill herself. "I'm worried sick that cocaine will end up killing Yasmine", says one pal. "She's snorting cocaine like there's no tomorrow and it's catching up with her. "She's young, talented, and is as sweet as they come, but she's throwing all that away."
Crew members on the set of Bleeth's TV show TITANS say during shooting, the star runs to her trailer at least fives times a day, coming out with glassy looking eyes, and that she's been plaguing the set with terrible mood swings. One pal says, "One of Yasmine's co-stars even threatened to stop kissing scenes with her because recently his own lips went numb after such a scene."
