So Sad: 90’s Star Maia Campbell is Allegedly Back on Drugs

mm

Over the weekend there was a disturbing video released of 90’s actress Maia Campbell indicating that she has relapsed and is back on drugs. For those who do not know who Maia Campbell is, she was an actress in the 90’s who was in some of our favorite movies, TV shows, and music videos like In the House, South Central, Poetic Justice, singer Tyrese’s Sweet Lady and Lately music videos. Maia was deemed one of the most beautiful women in the entertainment industry, unfortunately, things went downhill.

Maia’s mother, profound author, Bebe Campbell revealed that the actress suffered from bipolar disorder and was to take medication. I truly think Maia went on a destructive path after her mother passed away in 2006. She stopped taking her bi-polar medication and started to self-medicate with hard care drugs such as crystal meth and crack cocaine and lost custody of her daughter. Maia was no longer receiving praise for her beauty and acting talent but rather in the news for her run-ins with the law and erratic behavior. I did not know things were that bad for Maia until I saw the mug shot a couple years ago and almost did not even recognize her due to her alarming transformation.

Eventually, things started to look promising for Maia, in 2012 she appeared on Iyanla’s Fix My Life and revealed she was living in a sober house, taking her bipolar meds, and even started to reconnect with her teenage daughter. She started to look like the Maia we grew to love in the 90’s. A few years passed and I guess Maia lost the battle to her addiction (like most addicts do). Some man posted a video of Maia looking real disheveled, unkept, and even missing a tooth. She was at a gas station in Atlanta looking for some drugs and talking all over the place. It was really unfortunate that this man was willing to post the footage of Maia in this condition but it was even more disheartening seeing this beautiful woman is destroying her life in front of our eyes.

At the end of the day, I hope that Maia is able to get the help that she needs not only for herself but for her daughter’s sake. Like I said in a previous article, mental illness is real and people who suffer from it should not self-medicate with hardcore drugs but take the necessary actions to get well.

Update: LLCoolJ is trying to reach out to his Mai Campbell. He posted a tweet that was later deleted.

 

Do you think LLCoolJ is serious about getting Maia Campbell some help?

    Wow! This is so sad! I will be praying for this young lady. The guy that told her to pump his gas and recording her is TRASH! The girl clearly needs help! But he found humor in recording her! Why can’t we support each other as black people? Very sad! She will be in my prayers!

With all of the obstacles that exist within our society, it’s incredible to see 13-time NBA All-Star and former player, Dwyane Wade and his wife Gabrielle Union empowering their pre-teen, Zaya, to live her truth.

Everyone say hey to Zaya ❤️❤️

A post shared by The Neighborhood Talk LLC (@theneighborhoodtalk2) on

Wade recently appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” to promote the upcoming ESPN documentary D Wade: Life Unexpected. Following a clip from the documentary, he shared that his middle child, formerly known as Zion, now identifies as “her” and goes by the name Zaya. 

As DeGeneres praised him for his support of Zaya, Wade replied, “Me and my wife Gabrielle Union are proud parents of a child in the LGBTQ+ community. And we are proud allies as well. We take our roles and our responsibility as parents very seriously.”

He went on to share that Zaya expressed her desire to live her truth at 9-years-old. “I don’t know if everyone knows, originally named Zion, born as a boy — came home and said, ‘Hey, I want to talk to you guys. I think going forward I’m ready to live my truth. I want to be referenced as she and her, I would love for you guys to call me Zaya,” he explained.

Immediately the parents began to educate themselves and seek advice from members of the LGBTQ+ community, Union reaching out to the cast of the popular FX series, Pose. For Wade, it’s all about giving her “the best opportunity to be her best self” while preparing her to live life openly.

According to Wade, “Once Zaya came home and said, ‘I want you to call me Zaya and I’m ready to take on this,’ I looked at her and said, ‘You are a leader. And this is our opportunity to allow you to be a voice.’ Right now it’s through us, because she’s 12 years old, but eventually, it will be through her.”

For more on his journey post-career and as the father of an openly gay pre-teen, tune in to D Wade: Life Unexpected. The ESPN documentary airs Sunday, February 23rd.
