What The Hell Happened to Maia Campbell?

Rapper LL Cool J apparently isn’t too keen on the fact that a man has videotaped former actress, Maia Campbell, who now seems to be strung out on drugs.

After one unsettling video of a woman, believed to be Campbell, went completely viral via social media, Cool J crafted some harsh words for the man responsible for posting the video to his social media accounts.

In the footage, the woman, clad in a bralette and shorts at a gas station, tells the camera, “I want some crack,” and alleges she was raped in an encounter she described as “un-human.” 

Campbell was a former actress from “In The House,” a popular 90’s sitcom, starring Cool J, himself.

“Instead of pulling out your phone and filming someone who’s obviously having trouble. Maybe lend a helping hand? A kind word?” LL Cool J tweeted Sunday evening, tagging Campbell, with whom he worked for five seasons on the NBC sitcom.

The rapper’s public shaming is unlikely to sway the videographer-wannabe, who goes by the name @TheRealThood via social media. He’d already posted another explicit video where he was seen lashing out at other African Americans, who’d shamed him for “exploiting” the woman at a very low point in her life.

“They wouldn’t care,” he’d argued, “if the woman trying to buy crack on camera was a white child star.” He’d then cited Hilary Duff as an example.

In the video, which was posted to the Baller Alert Instagram account, a woman addresses Cool J, using his real name, James Todd Smith, saying, “I don’t need help; I don’t need a benefit concert for mental health. Don’t (direct message) me.”

When the camera man asked how Cool J could possibly get in touch with her, she’d replied, “Don’t call me, I’ll call you.”

Obviously hurt by her statement, the Lip Sync Battle host appeared to take the hint, writing, “You can’t help someone who doesn’t want your help.”
Campbell’s alleged bipolar disorder, as well as massive drug use, were the topics of conversation when she’d made an appearance on ‘Iyanla: Fix My Life’ back in 2012.

“There’s a lot of pain that goes into my story, a lot of issues with my mom,” she told Iyanla Vanzant. “A lot of times when I was out there running the streetsI bumped into the wrong person and they brought me down.” 

We are all hopeful that Ms. Campbell chooses to get her life together, after all, she was once an amazing talent with impeccable beauty.
