She was reportedly fired from the cast of Dick Tracy (1990) soon after. That same year, Young married actor Robert Lujan. The couple had two sons, Rio Kelly and Quinn Lee, together before divorcing in 2002.
In 1991, Young again made headlines for her behavior. Wanting to land the role of Catwoman in the latest Batman film,
she dressed in costume and stormed her way into the Warner Brothers studio lot. Young later admitted that the stunt "totally backfired." The part went to Michelle Pfeiffer instead. Young spent much of the remainder of the 1990s living away from the spotlight in Sedona, Arizona. She continued to act, but she landed few notable projects. Her most high-profile part came in 1994 when she appeared in the comedy Ace Ventura: Pet Detective opposite Jim Carrey.
After being out of the spotlight for years, Young worked on rebuilding her career. She landed a number of television guest appearances on such shows as CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Third Watch, Boston Public and Reno 911!. But Young sabotaged her own efforts with a disturbing tirade during the Directors Guild of America Awards ceremony in 2008. She heckled director Julian Schnabel during his acceptance speech and had to be removed by security. Not long after the incident, Young sought treatment for substance abuse at a rehabilitation center.
These days Young continues to pursue her passion for acting. In 2010, she spent six months playing a scheming villain on the popular daytime soap The Young and the Restless. Young also tried her hand at ice skating as a competitor on the reality show Skating with the Stars later that year.
