We are shocked to have learned that former Saved by the Bell star Lark Voorhies is battling with bipolar disorder… The actress’ mother revealed the news in an interview with PEOPLE. There was speculation about Voorhies using drugs after an interview of the former teen star mumbling and staring off went viral early this year. Voorhies’ mother, Tricia, said she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and there are things that have traumatized her. “I care deeply about my daughter and I want her to resume her life”.

Via People.com:

Voorhies says her “over-loving” mother worries about her, but there’s no need. She says she is not sick and keeps busy by working on low-budget indie productions, recording music and self-publishing her own books.

But what about the vacant stares and rambling moments?

“I have a strong spiritual sense,” she says. “You caught me in moments of pray [sic].”
