In December 2005, Campbell made his Broadway debut in the role of Seaweed J. Stubbs in the hit musical Hairspray.
Campbell returned to the studios in 2006, working with producers Scott Storch, The Underdogs, Krucial Keys, Bryan Michael Cox, Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins, Teddy Riley, and Ryan Leslie and his longtime associate KeArt. The album is to be released sometime in 2007.
And I never expected to find THIS out...
In 1999, Campbell was arrested after soliciting oral *** from an undercover male police officer during a sting operation in Van Nuys, California. According to police reports, marijuana residue was also found in Campbell's car during the arrest.
The sting operation was reportedly conducted in an area near Van Nuys High School, where there had been numerous complaints from the public about cruising and solicitation.
Although the police report clearly states that the arresting/sting officer was a male, there has been considerable speculation as to Campbell's sexuality since the incident. Some have conjectured that the arresting/sting officer may have been in drag, further clouding the issue. To date, Campbell has not commented publically on this matter.
Campbell plead no contest to the misdemeanor of solicitation, and as a result was ordered to pay $1080.00 in fines, attend meetings of Narcotics Anonymous and participate in a court-sanctioned AIDS awareness class. He returned to court in February 2000 to provide proof that he had completed the requirements of his sentence.
LOL WHAT THE HELL!
