Maia Campbell in a second videotape acting bizarre (video)

For the second time in nearly a year, former TV star  Maia Campbell, daughter of late novelist  Bebe Moore Campbell, has surfaced in an online video in which she appears incoherent and out of control. [Scroll down to view.]

This time, the  Takoma Park native was taped babbling nonsensical phrases to someone inside of a house, and later to anyone within earshot while pacing up and down a Los Angeles street.

Last September,  she was caught on tape by an LA rapper who claimed she asked for crack cocaine in lieu of payment for appearing in his music video. [Scroll down to view.] In both recordings, she is disheveled and not making any sense with her speech.

In the media frenzy surrounding Campbell’s first tape, at least one blogger denied claims that her behavior was drug induced. Columnist  Robin Caldwell of  blackweb2.0 said she suffers from schizophrenia, a mental disorder that makes it difficult to distinguish between real and unreal experiences.

But, the  Santa Monica Daily Press reported last month that when police pulled over Campbell for erratic driving, a search of her vehicle turned up one vial of cocaine. She was later charged with possession of a controlled substance, driving under the influence, driving without a license and a probation violation.

Campbell’s mother, who died in November 2006 and was a New York Times best-selling author, spoke regularly about mental health issues and was the co-founder and national spokesperson of NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) Urban Los Angeles.

Campbell, 33, starred opposite  LL Cool J in the sitcom “In the House,” which aired on NBC, and later UPN, from 1995 through 1999.

…And Examiner.com blogger Gregory Roberts added this:

Campbell, who is best known for playing the role of Tiffany Warren on the 90s sitcom  In the House, hadreportedly been in recovery for several months and had even begun releasing new hip hop and R amp;B singles earlier this year via her MySpace Music account.

This is the  second time video Maia Campbell’s apparent drug use has been uploaded on to YouTube.   In 2009,  video of Maia Campbell surfaced featuring her semi-conscious in a car after an apparent crack binge.

Maia Campbell lives in Los Angeles, California.

    It’s said that she hasn’t gotten help. But it goes to prove that money and fame isn’t everything. Look at Whitney, Natalie Cole. The love of the drug made them forsake everything.
