Video- After Maia Campbell Rejects LL Cool J’s Help, An Intervention Team Takes Over
After a heartbreaking video surfaced of 90’s actress, Maia Campbell, seemingly back on drugs, the public was saddened to see her in such a horrific state and want to see her win. The video went viral with many people praying and expressing their concern for Maia’s well-being. Well now, it seems like those prayers were answered as Maia is getting the help she needs. In the words of my momma, “Look at Gawd!”
In case you missed our previous report, on Saturday, July 8th (2017), a video surfaced of Maia Campbell on the streets of the ATL . Although she has bipolar disorder, in the video, Maia appeared to be high and not necessarily suffering solely from symptoms of bipolar. An unknown man is seen in the video speaking with Campbell, as she pumped gas. The man then asks Maia if she wants “some powder or some crack” and she goes on a tangent about being raped by a man who calls himself Bill Cosby. It’s difficult to see a beautiful, talented woman, with so much potential take a downward spiral to this level. In the video, Maia is scantily dressed, with her hair disheveled and it appears that she may have lost some teeth. She’s not herself and she looks as if she’s under the influence of something. Check it out below…
LL Cool J.’s Plea To Maia:
The video of Maia Campbell went viral and caught the attention of many people including her ” In The House” costar, LL Cool J. Upon discovery that Maia needed help, the hip hop icon took to Twitter and asked for Maia to contact him.
In addition, he slammed the dude who recorded the video by suggesting that people should help someone who is in need instead of mocking them on social media.
Instead of pulling out your phone and filming someone who's obviously having trouble. Maybe lend a helping hand? A kind word? @MaiaCampbell

While it is never okay to embarrass someone who needs help, in a small way, the video brought attention to the dangers of substance abuse. Because she is not regularly seen on television, many people may have assumed that everything was now all good with her, or simply may have forgotten who she was altogether. Seeing herself in such a negative light may be the motivation Maia needs to sober up permanently. But Maia wasn’t really feeling LL’s help. See what she said below…
