What Really Happened to Rich Campbell?
Basically, it all started on December 16. A Twitch streamer who goes by the name Azalia Lexi made some shocking revelations. She posted a lengthy message where she blamed Campbell for some serious misconduct. She revealed that Campbell sexually exploited her. Both were friends initially, which soon blossomed into love. Their relationship lasted for almost four years. It was in 2019 when Campbell started forcing her to get intimate with him.
Azalia has claimed that Campbell mentally and emotionally manipulated her by constant nagging and gaslighting. He made many fake promises and kept on fooling her by claiming that he cared for her. Campbell was already in another relationship. She got to know this in 2021 but decided to forgive him due to her respect for the bond they shared.
Campbell started forcing and manipulating her to meet on a few more occasions, and He would keep on persuading her to visit his Texas home in 2021. Despite Azelia’s reluctance and refusal, he kept on asking her to meet him in his hotel room in Los Angeles.
The influencer refused it clearly on both occasions, as she was convinced that his motive was to get intimate with her. He was growing desperate to indulge in a sexual relationship. Azelia further wrote that she started avoiding him completely as she was now aware of his motives. But he was not ready to step back
He called her to his New York flat. He started making sexual advances toward her when she went to meet her. Initially, both were at a movie theatre, but Campbell started forcing her to move to his room. He told her not to worry as he had all respect for her.
Azalia was not sure what to do, but Campbell was someone who had the ability to manipulate anyone through his words. So Azalia headed towards his room. Now, this is where things went haywire. Campbell, who had earlier assured her that he wouldn’t cross any limits, started making her uncomfortable. He removed his clothing and even tried to remove Azalia’s clothes. Later, he tried to sexually assault Azalia and then asked her to get out of his room.
Azalia felt distraught and said that she was clueless as to what to do next. She had to look for a hotel at 3 am and stayed there for the night. The incident left her shaken, and she cut off all her ties with Campbell following the traumatic night.
Apart from the above Twitlonger, she has also posted chats between her and Campbell that are from the horror night. In these chats, it is clear that Campbell is asking Azalia to come to his apartment, specifically the movie theatre, where both could spend a great time together.
