Former Disney child star Lee Thompson Young was suffering from bipolar disorder before he committed suicide in August (13), according to a coroner's report. The body of The Famous Jett Jackson star was discovered at his Los Angeles apartment. He was 29. Officials ruled he had taken his own life by shooting himself in the head with a handgun, and now a report from the Los Angeles County Coroner claims the actor he had a history of mental health issues. In the report, one witness statement reveals Young had "a history of bipolar disorder". The documents add, "He was known to take his medications as prescribed. He is a social drinker and denies any narcotic abuse. (Witness) last spoke with him Wednesday, 08/14/2013 and he appeared to be okay.
