The “American Pie” star had a slew of hits in the ’90s, but her promising career was damaged after a series of encounters with the law including DUI and being charged with mischief, trespass, and harassment of a neighbor and the neighbor’s dog. She was also hospitalized for a variety of illnesses, including a collapsed lung and hepatitis C. She was eventually evicted from a friend’s townhouse and ended up living on the streets.
