Well how did this manage to stay hidden??
Yandy Smith recently rose to fame via her role as Jim Jones’ manager on Vh1 reality saga Love and Hip Hop. Sources say that Yandy’s cute BF Mendeecees Harris has reason to not make any plans for the next 15-20 years. On top of facing allegations of sexual abuse of a 15 year old in NJ (we’ll get back to that), according to the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, Mendeecees recently turned himself in on drug charges in Rochester, NY (January 24th, 2013). He and his Co-D’s (jail talk for co-defendants…Mendee better get up on his jail lingo!) were initially indicted on drug charges that have escalated to drug trafficking charges.
Sources say that Mendeecees and two others trafficked $2.5 MILLION worth of drugs between 2005 and August 2012. It is reported that the group trafficked large amounts of cocaine and heroin (people still smoke heroin…who knew?) into the Western NY city. Charges related to heroin often carry life sentences, YIKES.
Check out the items listed in the indictment:
-$1.5 Million in cash seized from safety deposit boxes in connection with the Defendants
-$407,000 worth of jewelry and watches, including two Rolex watches one at $60k, the other at $35k
-Also included in the indictment are properties in Georgia and Baltimore
Both of Harris’ Co-D’s have pled not guilty to all charges. We can assume that he will plead the same. Harris will not be arraigned on the drug charges until his current trial in NJ is complete. Earlier I mentioned that Harris was charged with the sexual abuse of a minor, 15 years old. The catch to this story, as if it needs one, is that the minor is the daughter of his Ex an possibly the sister of his older son. Clearly he knew her age! If convicted Mendee could face up to 20 years on the sexual abuse charge alone.
So someone please tell me why people with the most to hide go on reality tv??? Sit down somewhere! I understand this is all alleged at this point but geez! RUMOR SAYS that in light of all of the legal drama both Yandy and her BF have been fired from the show.
This is sad because there are children involved who may grow up without their Father. As if we need more of that in the African American community.
Stay tuned. At this rate I am sure more foolishness is just around the corner. Smh…
