Mandeecees Harris, Love & Hip-Hop star and father of fellow L&HH star Yandy Smith’s baby is currently facing numerous charges in different cases. One case, as we reported yesterday, is a major drug trafficking ring, of which he is facing with 2 other cohorts over $2.5 million worth of heroin and cocaine. The other case, depending on how you look at it, is a bit more severe. He’s being accused of doing some sexual things (mainly, getting fellatio) from his ex-girlfriend’s 15-year-old daughter while they lived together in 2011. Now that sounds bad enough, but you’ve got to read some of the excerpts from the girl’s testimony! The trial began yesterday, and BOY is it not looking good for him. I definitely think he’s going to do some time! Check out the details below. SMH.
The trial is taking place in Hackensack, and the girl is now 19-years-old. Some major takeaways:
- He told her she was “better than [her] mother” after coercing her into oral sex by revealing his knowledge of a dark secret from her past.
- “Mendeecees made me feel comfortable. He would give me advice. He’d say ‘It’ll be okay between you and your mom’,” the woman said. (She and her mom didn’t get along.)
- Then came an afternoon when, with no one else home, she realized in the shower that she didn’t have a towel. “I asked him to get me one, and he did,” the woman testified. “Then he came into my room and suggested I let him masturbate on me, but I just laughed.”
- “He told me he knew I had been raped when I was 8 years old,” she said, “and he found out from my mother. “‘Your mom doesn’t want you here’,” the woman said Harris told her before exposing himself.
She ended up doing it to spite her mom, and this continued for a while. Eventually her mother found a text in her phone from Mandeecees, and they broke up after that. However, he thought his secret was still safe.
“He said she didn’t know anything, so don’t say anything. It was something he would ‘take to his grave.’ He [also] told me they were done.”
He’s facing 7 counts of illegal sex, including giving her money as an inducement. Since that happened when she was 15 and 16 and he was more than 4 years older, he’s also facing a statutory rape charge.
If convicted of the charges, he could face up to 20 years in prison.
