Maia Campbell Spotted Toothless Asking For Crack & Drugs
New, disturbing footage of Maia Campbell has surfaced, leading us to believe that she’s struggling with addiction again and/or battling with her bipolar disorder.
Over the weekend, a clip went viral which showcased the actress at a gas station looking unkept, disheveled, wearing a bra and underwear.
The footage was captured by a man who appears to be a friend. At one point in the clip, the 40-year-old former actress states,
I want some crack.
See the footage.
Maia is best known for her role as Nicole on the 1994 FOX comedy-drama series South Central and her portrayal of Tiffany Warren in the NBC/UPN sitcom In the House for three seasons (1995–1998). She was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, a fact she hid from the public during her career. After the birth of her daughter, Campbell, stopped treatment for her bipolar disorder, became addicted to drugs and was arrested multiple times for car theft, drug possession and prostitution.
Viral videos that appeared on the Internet showed Maia disheveled and acting erratically. In 2010, Maia was arrested for theft and sent to a mandatory mental health facility. In 2012, having been sober for two years, she voluntarily lived in a residential treatment center in hopes of transitioning to living on her own.
Relationship expert Iyanla Vanzant sat down with Campbell on her televised show, “Iyanla: Fix My Life” on the OWN network. During the interview, Vanzant briefly reunited Campbell with her twelve-year-old daughter to help her process the guilt and shame of her past and move on to a more healthy future.
In 2015, Campbell was arrested in Riverdale, GA where the former actress was allegedly causing a scene. Officers gave her a chance to leave on her own, but she refused. She was charged with disorderly conduct. Later that year she was arrested in a Burger King restaurant in Atlanta GA after verbally attacking a family and accusing their child of stealing her wallet.
Most recently, she was a cast member of CENTRIC’s “From The Bottom Up”.
The executive producer of the show, Nicci Gilbert, has responded to Maia’s condition and people sharing the video stating,
