Unfortunetly for her, she has frequently been caught on tape by the people she surrounds herself with when she is at her worst, suffering from the effects of the mental disease.(SOURCE)
The latest manic episode by Maia has been caught on tape, and plastered all over the internet.
Many in the public confuse her symptoms and actions for drug abuse, namely crack cocaine abuse, and ,it has been reported that Maia does indeed have an ongoing drug problem that exacerbates her mental disorder.
What’s most disturbing about these videos is the fact that the people taking them, and possibly some viewing them, use it as a source of entertainment, glorifying in the affliction that has stifled not only this beautiful young ladies career,…but also her life.(SOURCE)

Why people (haters really…)are so cruel to people who once made a living as an entertainer is a mystery to me. I am sure some of these haters will write in to state their case, other than that, all I can say is that their own lives must be trifling if this entertains them at all.
For those of us that have a relative or loved one that suffers from this mental disorder, then you know it is absolutely not a laughing matter…at all. This young lady needs help, and possibly, some supervision. She is not in control of her mind.

It is ironic that Bebe Moore Campbell’s daughter is suffering from mental illness, but, it has been proven that mental illness runs in families.

Let’s hope that Maia can receive some effective help, and enter a program that can cleanse her of the illegal drugs, and get on some medication that can stabilize her mental health, so that she can get on and go back to her productive life,with her family, and real friends.
…and keep her away from idiots with cell phone cameras and YouTube accounts…
