Is Mandeecees a child molester? Love and Hip Hop season three just premiered on Monday, and although the first episode promises to give the viewers plenty of drama for the remainder of the season, it appears the real drama is taking place away from the cameras. Yandy Smith first made an appearance on Love and Hip Hop as the manager to rapper Jim Jones. Their working relationship fizzled out quickly once Yandy began to struggle to get along with his girlfriend Chrissy Lampkin. Chrissy always had a hunch that Yandy was into Jim romantically, but it’s been revealed on the first episode of season three of the show that Yandy was actually dating someone else at the time. That person is said to be Mandeecees Harris, and he makes an appearance on the show with Yandy as the couple now has a child together. But whispers about Mandeecees having a not so squeaky past have been growing louder for the last couple of months. Some rumors suggest Mandeecees is into the street life, but a recent report suggests Mandeecees has been accused of something way more heinous.
According to a recent report, Mandeecees has been accused of molesting a 15 year old girl. According to New Jersey’s The Record, the new reality star and baby daddy to Yandy Smith has been charged for sexually assaulting the 15 year old girl, and rumors suggest the child is the daughter of his other baby mama (that has not yet been confirmed). Here’s the report:
Jury selection began Wednesday in Hackensack for the trial of a hip-hop reality TV star accused of molesting an underage girl in Lodi two years ago.
Mandeecees Harris, a 34-year-old actor on the VH1 reality show “Love and Hip-Hop,” is charged with performing various sexual acts with a 15-year-old girl and inappropriately touching her at his former home in Lodi.
Bergen County prosecutors allege that Harris asked for and received oral sex from the girl and fondled her on various occasions between September 2009 and April 2010. He was arrested later that year and charged with aggravated sexual assault, criminal sexual contact and child endangerment. If convicted, he faces up to 20 years in prison.
Harris remains free without bail. He was not present in state Superior Court in Hackensack during jury selection Wednesday. Court officials expect to have a full panel of jurors by Thursday, and attorneys are scheduled to make opening remarks on Jan. 29.
It’s also being reported that just this summer, Mandeeces and Yandy’s place was raided by the police due to Mandeecees alleged street activity. Here’s the report from Wives Confidential:
Sources and neighbors allege that Yandy’s house got raided by law enforcement back in July/August. Yandy was seen crying in the street during the occurrence. We are guessing the government sponsored home invasion took place courtesy of her Mandingo…oops we mean Mandeecee, and his known street affiliations. We can’t confirm the exact reason, but at least her and her child are safe.
Our sources also allege that Mandeecee only moved in with Yandy for show purposes. There are also allegations of an older child from Mandeecee. Prior to staying with Yandy he was shacked up with the mother of that child out in New Jersey. The said seed of Mandeecee is believed to be more than 2 years old and does not get mentioned on the show.
