Maia Campbell’s Father Issues Statement Regarding Daughter’s Condition After Shocking Video Surfaces


Statement And Video After The Jump

BallerStatus Reports

After a video surfaced of actress Maia Campbell ranting in a drug-induced state, the reaction was shock among the internet community.

Rumors began to circulate about prostitution and heavy drug use, among other things, but not much has been revealed from people close to her. Well, Campbell's father, Ellis Gordon, released a statement to Essence recently, revealing that she's currently in a facility receiving treatment.

Here's his full statement, according to Essence:

Our hearts have been deeply touched by the outpouring of love that so many of you have freely displayed in the past several days about our beloved Maia C. Campbell. Our spirits have been lifted by your words of support and your acts of kindness and we have been encouraged to continue our efforts to assist our daughter and granddaughter to become whole again.

As a family, we have been struggling with Maia in her illness for quite some time. We continue to hold fast to our faith and hope that some day she will realize that healing will begin when she decides to reach out and accept the help and treatment that have been offered to her. We all have challenges in life that we must face, but when compound problems such as mental illness and substance abuse are prevalent, it can appear that there is no way out. However, our sustaining faith and trust in God compels us to believe differently. We strongly believe that Maia will be healed.

We also know that Maia's mother, the late Bebe Moore Campbell, who devoted much of her later years in life to mental health awareness and education, along with her family members and friends would welcome your prayers and support for Maia's sustained recovery. In addition, we urge your support for efforts to diagnose and treat mental illness in our community.

We ask that you not only pray for Maia's wellness, but also commit to understanding this insidious disease, which is devastating our loved ones and community. Help erase the "stigma" of mental illness, which is a very serious barrier to treatment, so that we can help those with the disease to live wholesome lives. Call for more treatment options and prevention strategies, have compassion for those stricken with this illness, and help guide those who have been unable to find their way to appropriate treatment. Additionally, support those families who are struggling to cope with loved ones with the disease because mental illness affects the entire family.

Finally, we ask that you support Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month, which was established by Congressional Resolution, H. Con. Res. 134, in April 2008, and is celebrated during the month of July each year. It was established to enhance public awareness of mental illness, especially within minority communities. Please join us in this effort to bring attention to this problem, to identify resources and to strengthen the focus on treatment along with research relative to minorities and mental illness. This is the work that we continue on behalf of Bebe Moore Campbell.

Let us move forward, face our challenge, and turn that challenge into victory and a celebration of life.

To God be the Glory,

Sincerely,

Ellis Gordon Jr., Father
Doris C. Moore, Grandmother

"Nahh my bad. I read other people's comments that said he's racist. And just put it all in one comment. I agree, They both are morons but no way is Hillary the lesser evil."
