Earlier this week, Mendeecees Harris, and wife, Yandy Smith revealed the news that surely took them into an emotional spin. Over the past few years, Harris had been in and out of court, and prison, battling a drug trafficking charge, and just when he was expecting a slap on the wrist, he was sentenced to eight years. While he “completely accept[s] responsibility for all that is going on,” it does not soften the blow for his wife, kids, and other loved ones; including former Love & Hip Hop: NY castmate K. Michelle.

K took to social media to share a touching message to Mendeecees and his family. Check it out down bottom.

The “Hard To Do” singer posts a photo of the family with the following message:

Where do I start? It’s late and I’m just leaving the studio but honestly this is heavy on my heart. @yandysmith and @mendeecees I respect u both dearly. Yandy, your dedication and love for your husband is not only motivational to me but inspiring. I’ve been in several relationships but never truly valued love. My motto has been hurt them, before they hurt me. After being apart of your wedding and just witnessing the loyalty and determination to not give up on love and make your family work it opened my eyes. I realized I was loving wrong. Love isn’t for cowards and that’s what I was a coward numb to any emotion. My words were just lies to play the role. I can honestly say I had NEVER truly been in love with any man in my life. I just hated sleeping alone. We all make mistakes and even though @mendeecees is having to pay for them now, his fight to get his life right and love his family is so promising and real. You guys are the definition on REAL black love. In a world where men would much rather run from commitment and think it’s cool to collect hearts you guys are the real deal. The last four months I decided to be honest with myself and finally let my guard down and try out love, and I must say you guys gave me the courage to do that. Who knows what will happen, but I do know I won’t be settling or accepting anything other than the purest and ultimate attention, time, and respect towards me, and I will do the same. And if they can’t be that to me, there’s no me in the equation. You guys rock. Kiss the babies, me and Sklar still have an ice cream date coming up! Allow this test to be your testimony and inspire others. I Love yall❤️ Time will fly he will be home before you know it Yandy❤️
