According to a reader submission to the gossip site Fameolous, actress Maia Campbell is at home after being held at a Dekalb County jail for a mental health evaluation.

“It’s been a hectic negotiating day, It’s not easy Maia Campbell is being held by Dekalb County for evaluation while her family and intervention team can find a way. She’s safe for tonight. Thank you for all the inbox and support I’ll do it from my heart I also have children and I pray if the going through someone stand with them like a angel on a mission. There’s no shame just be loving and present and listen to the dynamic of the story. We all have them some hidden some obvious but none is perfect especially with mental illness is real. Love your children and love one. Stop glamorizing negative behavior and expecting more but when we get what we painted embrace it too. God is love Intervention is caring. No one is famous but we all are human so imperfect.”
Over the weekend, heartbreaking footage of 90s actress Maia Campbell went viral, prompting her former In The House co-star LL Cool J to post a message on Instagram in search of a contact for the beloved star.
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 truly hope Maia is able to get the help she needs and deserves. We’ll be keeping an eye on this story.
