Mandeecees Harris, the baby daddy to Love & Hip Hop New York's star Yandy Smith, faces sexual assault charges for allegedly inappropriately touching and getting his knob slobbed by his ex-girlfriend's 15-year-old daughter. He is currently out on bail, making babies with Yandy, and collecting a hefty check from VH1.
The alleged sexual assault happened on various occasions between September 2009 and April 2010. Mandeecees, age 34, was arrested at the end of 2010 and charged with aggravated sexual assault, criminal sexual contact and child endangerment. Jury selection for the trail began on Wednesday and the attorneys are scheduled to make their opening remarks January 29th. If he is convicted, he faces up to 20 years in prison.
I really didn't want to believe that this story was true and I questioned whether or not I should post it on my blog. After deep thought, I know that my job is to report the news to y'all regardless of how it makes me feel.
On that note...this right here is shameful and absolutely disgusting. Yandy girl, wtf are you doing get knocked up by this man? Love is blind and all but cottdamn, is it that hard in the streets of Harlem to find a decent man that doesn't have a rap sheet and isn't facing these types of charges? I think that VH1 and Mona Scott-Young should be slapped in the face for allowing this man to collect a check on Love & Hip Hop. This might possibly be a new low in the quest for entertainment and I might have to boycott this show in its entirety (not the Atlanta series though, those are my boos!). I don't care if you are presumed innocent until proven guilty, I refuse to support a show that thinks it is okay to highlight a man who is facing these types of allegations. Nope, not I. Not today.
