So Sad: Maia Campbell Responds to LL Cool J’s Offer to Help

Hard to watch.

Published July 11, 2017

Maia Campbell caught social media's attention when a video surfaced of the former In the House actress looking unkempt and toothless while being patronized by a man at what appeared to be a gas station.

The clip, which quickly went viral, seemingly showed the actress in a state of relapse, and urged her former co-star LL Cool J to offer help via social media, asking his followers to help him find her. There's only one problem, however: Campbell is adamant that she's just fine.

The rapper urged his followers, "If someone has a contact on Maia, please let me know."

Campbell, 40, responded to LL's offer of support by reassuring him that she doesn't need help.

"Hey Todd, look bro, I love you," she said while being filmed at a beauty shop. "I don't need help. I just need a benefit concert for mental health. Don't DM me, it's really me and this is Darryl," she said, referring to the person recording her.

"This is the shop that I temp at, or whatever," she continued. "We're good. I'm good. I'm doing property, I have investments. I'm a real serious person and my show is called [inaudible]."

When Darryl asked her how the MC could get in touch with her, she said, "Don't call me, I'll call you." After being prompted to take the situation seriously, she added, "I'm really on Instagram, but I don't want it to go down."

When Darryl continued to push for a serious response from Campbell, she incoherently said, "I don't know. Pray to God... that I don't start rapping. Oops!"
