Shocking new video footage of Angelina Jolie appears to show the Hollywood A-lister in the midst of her battle with drug addiction.

The man who released the video, Franklin Meyer, claims he was Jolie's drug dealer while she was living in New York, and says he recorded the footage one night in 1999 after re-supplying the star with heroin and cocaine.

The convicted drug dealer released the video to the National Enquirer, and claims he shot the 16-minute footage with Jolie's consent.

"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," Meyer told the Enquirer.

"At the time, I had just bought a video camera and decided to bring it along. When I arrived, I just gave her the drugs and then she gave me the money."

According to Meyer, the footage shows Jolie talking to her father, actor Jon Voight.

While it is unclear from the video alone who she is speaking with, an emaciated and sore-covered Jolie is seen pacing the floor of her run-down apartment, picking her skin and rambling about family issues.

At one point she appears to refer to her brother James Haven, who she calls "Jamie", and at another she seems to talk about her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, who died in 2007.

In a 2011 interview with 60 Minutes Jolie referred to the "heavier, darker times" she had survived in her past.

"I didn't die young, so I'm very lucky."
