LL Cool J reached out trying to get in contact with his '90s In the Houseco-star, posting on Instagram, "If anyone has a contact on Maia pls let me know . . ."
LL Cool J shamed the person who took the video of Campbell on Twitter, saying, "Instead of pulling out your phone and filming someone who's obviously having trouble. Maybe lend a helping hand? A kind word?"
Campbell has since responded to his search with a video that was apparently shot inside a barber shop where she works temporarily. In the video, she named the man who shot the video, Darrell Cole, and said that she didn't need any help, unless LL Cool J wanted to help her throw a benefit concert for mental health.
"Hey Todd. Well, I love you. I don't need help. I need a benefit concert for mental health. Don't TMZ me. It's really me. This is, Darryl [referencing to the man filming the video]. And this is the shop that we temp at. We're good. I'm doing property. I have investments. And my show is called, 'From The Bottom Up' season 2," she said.
