ATLANTA (AP):

Former actress Maia Campbell has rejected an offer of help from her one-time sitcom co-star LL Cool J.

The actor and rapper asked his social media followers for help with finding Campbell after a disturbing video surfaced that appeared to show Campbell asking a man at an Atlanta gas station for drugs.

It's not clear if LL Cool J got in touch with Campbell, but she declined his offer in a new video, saying, "I don't need help. I just need a benefit concert for mental health."

Campbell said she's doing "good'' and described herself as a "real serious person".

LL Cool J responded on Twitter, "You can't help someone who doesn't want your help."

LL Cool J starred alongside Campbell in the 1990s sitcom In the House.

In 2012, Campbell discussed her battles with substance abuse and bipolar disorder on the OWN series Iyanla: Fix My Life.
