Yandy Smith & Mendeecees Harris’ Foster Daughter Gives a Sad Update

Photo Credit: VH1/YouTube

Yandy Smith has always been open about the ups and downs in her life.

Love And Hip Hop New York” star Yandy Smith has been very open about her life on the show. While one of her most challenging moments was keeping it together while Mendeecees Harris was locked up, she’s had other tough moments in front of the cameras. In fact, fans of the show saw how challenging it was for Yandy to foster a young lady named Infinity Gilyard. Yandy wanted Infinity to join her family so she could ensure she’d have a bright future. It didn’t take long for Infinity to bond with Yandy’s other children. However, Mendeecees struggled to get adjusted once he was released from prison. For Mendeecees, he didn’t like that Yandy made the decision to foster while he was away. So at times, there was tension between Mendeecees and Infinity.

Yandy would later reveal that she clashed with Infinity over a past relationship. She said Infinity was in a romantic relationship with an older man. Yandy didn’t agree with this. So she pointed out that the relationship was problematic. Infinity was told to stop seeing the man. If she didn’t, she would have to move out of Yandy’s home. Yandy accused the man of threatening to call Child Protective Services on her. And she was told her children would be taken away from her. At the time, Yandy was asking Infinity to watch over the children while she was away working.

Becoming a foster mom wasn’t easy for Yandy Smith.

Infinity eventually moved out and it strained her relationship with Yandy. They were able to talk things out on the show. But Mendeecees said he was having a hard time trusting Infinity because she would vent her frustrations with him and the family on social media.

Regardless, lately, it seemed as if Infinity has been on good terms with the family. She’s doing well in college. They have been making funny videos and posting them on social media for the last several weeks. However, Infinity has some LHHNY fans talking because of a recent video she made. She confirmed she’s struggling with her mental health. And she doesn’t believe anyone in her life truly cares about her.

    This was so sad and I feel for Infinity. She really does need therapy and maybe Yandy and Mendeecees can pay since she said she can’t afford it on her own.

      Maybe she needs more than they can give her . She seems like a problem child and I see Yancy trying to give her everything she wants and needs and then she does things like this every time . There is only so much they can do to help her . I am sue they would pay for her to see a therapist . She seems to me like a person who doesn’t like herself so she feels like no one else likes her either . I feel bad for all of them . Yandy always get the flack from everyone every time this child does this . Just my opinion and I’m not blaming her for her issues

          Huh? I feel like some of y’all are so focused on stanning for Yandy you refuse to watch the video in full and understand context. She literally said she needs help and didn’t put blame on anyone else. Stop being biased.

    Mental health is no joke and we all must do what’s necessary to thrive and be happy. The fact that she’s aware of her feelings and what she needs is good. Prayers for Infinity.

    She needs help. They should have sent her to therapy a long time ago. Many people even though they are surrounded by family feel alone. Doesn’t mean the family did anything wrong it just means that they have some things to work out for themselves and need help to do that. Some perspective

    You can tell she’s been through a lot already in her life. Therapy will help her sort out her feelings and move forward. I honestly think everyone could benefit from therapy. Not just those who are struggling.

      Umm, Infinity was adopted by Yandy. She is Yandy’s child. Do you not understand how adoption works?

    So you guys are going to bring more trauma to her by your negative comments? Apparently you don’t understand mental illness. IT’S REAL!!! And you shouldn’t point the finger at someone who is battling internally. This is why people feel that no one is in their corner.Try lifting others up when they are struggling instead of tearing them down.

      Thank you. I believe some of them are too focused on stanning strangers like Yandy when they need to be educating themselves on mental illness and mental health. There’s no need to criticize Infinity.

    I feel so sad for her, but you can’t blame Yandy for this she was a broken child when Yandy got her. Truly hope she get all the therapy she need so she can love herself and live a wonderful life!!! I’m going to pray for her .

    Y’all this is the kind of situation where it’s no one’s fault. Not Yandy’s fault. Not Mendeecees fault. Not Infinity’s fault. Life isn’t a cake walk. Infinity went through some things and her childhood wasn’t easy. Yandy and Mendeecees gave her tools to be successful, start a business, and go to college BUT childhood trauma is something you can’t shake without therapy. Pray for everyone involved.

    I agree Infinity needs help, she’s not grown, isn’t she still a teenager. Agreed she has a lot of childhood trauma that needs to be addressed. I’m not blaming anyone but this child needs help, not negativity.

    I am so sorry for what she’s going through but she has to work on herself. Everybody’s so busy blaming Yandy for what? She mentored Infinity . She adopted her.She moved her in. This child no young woman has her real family too! Where are they? At what point is Yandy supposed to worry about what’s best for her and her own family. She tried to help and was threatened about her own kids being removed? Now be honest would we risk that trying to help somebody else’s daughter? NO!!!

    • Shannon

      Who on here blamed Yandy? Please, point them out. By the way, Yandy adopted Infinity. Infinity is her daughter and she’s a part of her family. So please be respectful with your comments. Infinity needs therapy not criticism and a lack of understanding of how adoption works.

      If people don’t want opinions, backlash or whatever. STOP POSTING STUFF! Gone are the days where people handled their problem behind closed doors

    I’m MY opinion this young lady is suffering from the regretful things she did to hurt Yandy and she lost her special place she had in their family. Right now she’s hurting and I hope she learns from it. You can not hurt and betray family because you don’t want to follow the rules when you’re a minor. Never bite the hand that feeds you!

      What are you even talking about? Infinity was preyed on by an older man. She’s actually a victim in that situation along with Yandy. Do you hear yourself saying a young black woman lost her place in her family? Who do you think Yandy is? She’s not you, Unfortunate. Yandy actually loves and cares for this young black woman and Infinity is still a part of Yandy’s family. I don’t understand the thinking of some of Yandy’s fans. First y’all were upset when Yandy was accused of not caring about Infinity and using her for clout. Now you all want her to abandon Infinity or think she has abandoned her and kicked her out the family? How strange. Yandy is a better person than that. So stop criticizing her daughter. I’m sure Yandy doesn’t appreciate it.

    Why are some of you itching to talk badly about a 18/19 year old? I really hate stan culture.
