Mendeecees Harris Personal Life
In 2008, Mendeecees began dating actress/singer Yandy Smith, and the two married on May 25, 2015. The wedding was taped for the special “Love & Hip Hop Live: The Wedding,” which drew over two million viewers. On July 16, 2012, the couple had son Omare, and on January 26, 2015, they welcomed daughter Skylar.
Mendeecees Jr. (born October 9, 2005), whose mother is Samantha Wallace, and Aasim (born September 7, 2011), whose mother is Erika DeShazo, are Harris’s other kids from past relationships. After being accused of “forcing a 15-year-old girl to watch porn with him, expose herself to him, and perform oral sex on him” in 2009, Mendeecees was charged with sexual assault, encouraging prostitution, and child endangerment in 2010.
In 2013, Harris was found not guilty in a New Jersey court.
Mendeecees was sentenced to eight years in a minimum-security prison after pleading guilty to narcotics trafficking charges in 2015. He agreed to pay over over $100,000 in earnings from “Love and Hip Hop: New York,” as well as his 2011 Audi R8. Because he completed drug abuse, public speaking, parenting, and nutrition classes while in jail, his sentence was lowered, and he was freed in January 2020.
Harris and Smith weren’t formally married until late 2016, and Yandy subsequently claimed that she never submitted the papers because she didn’t want to be liable for Mendeecees’ debts, including the reparations he had to pay the government following his sentence.
This came as a surprise to Harris, who had assumed Yandy had submitted the papers after his case had been concluded. Yandy adopted a teenage girl called Infinity Gilyard when Mendeecees was in prison. Mendeecees and Yandy renewed their wedding vows in Dubai in May 2021.
Mendeecees is the manager of Webstar and Vado, two New York rappers. He first appeared on “Love & Hip Hop: New York” in 2013, during the third season of the show, and has since appeared in over 50 episodes. Because Harris was serving a jail sentence for drug trafficking, he couldn’t physically appear on the show for a few seasons, but he could be heard on the show via phone calls with his wife, Yandy Smith. Mendeecees and Yandy went on VH1’s “Couples Retreat” in 2021, after leaving “Love and Hip Hop: New York” for “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.”
Harris stated in October 2021 that he will be presenting a financial riches class at the Oulala Café and Lounge in Lynbrook titled “From a Prison Cell to Living Well.”
In season three of Love & Hip Hop: New York, Mendeecees joins the supporting cast, which follows the birth of Omere, his first kid with Yandy, and the couple’s engagement. However, their wedding preparations are disrupted later in the season when Mendeecees runs into legal troubles and is forced to surrender himself for several drug and trafficking accusations. During season four, Mendeecees is incarcerated awaiting punishment, but he continues to appear on the show via phone talks with Yandy. After receiving bail, Mendeecees returns in season five, and Yandy gives birth to their second child, Skylar.
Yandy and Mendeecees married live on VH1 on May 25, 2015, as part of the special Love & Hip Hop Live: The Wedding.
Mendeecees is condemned to eight years in prison in season six and turns himself in again in the finale. Yandy acknowledges that her broadcast wedding was “symbolic” and that her marriage to Mendeecees is not legitimate while he is in prison in season seven.
Throughout seasons seven, eight, and nine, as well as in the special The Love Edition, Mendeeces would make cameos via phone talks with Yandy and other cast members. He also appears alongside Yandy in an episode of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta: After Party Live!
