Maia Campbell was best known for playing Tiffany in the LL Cool J-led sitcom In the House. Along with a few notable roles in the ’90s and 2000s, Campbell later became known for her drug habits, her many run-ins with the law, and struggling with bipolar disorder. Now, it seems like the ’90s star might be backtracking due to a viral video.

In the clip, Maia is dressed only in a bra and underwear at a gas station. She can be heard saying, “I want some crack.” You can watch the full clip below.


Maia reportedly stopped taking medication to regulate her bipolar disorder after her daughter was born in 2000. She was eventually arrested multiple times for car theft, drug possession and prostitution. In 2010, she was required to go to a mental health facility. In 2012 she checked into a residential treatment center and she even appeared on Iyanla: Fix My Life to confront the obstacles of her life.

Five years later, after multiple arrests, it seems Campbell might still be struggling with some familiar issues. LL Cool J took notice and an intervention could be on the way.


LL has since deleted the Instagram message and posted what appears to be an update:

The disturbing footage shows Maia in an unhealthy state and apparently searching for drugs.

Maia appeared on season one of Iyanla: Fix My Celebrity Life where she opened up about her bipolar disorder and the struggles she has faced while dealing with substance abuse.

We hope Maia gets on the right track for the sake of her life. We’ll keep you updated if anymore news surfaces.
