Wow, this must be a major wakeup call for the cast of VH1’s ‘Love & Hip Hop’ because reality just got very real for Mendeecees Harris! He was sentenced to eight years in prison after he plead guilty for conspiracy to distribute heroin and cocaine!
Mendeecees Harris is going to the slammer. The 37-year-old reality star was sentenced to eight years on Dec. 1 and he is expected to turn himself over after the New Year. We bet his wife, Yandy Smith is devastated right now! Mendeecees will serve his federal prison sentence in New York.
Not only did he have to pay $171,000 that he made while starring on Love & Hip Hop, but he had to give up his Audi R8 too. It’s not a good time to be Mendeecees. The drug charges stem from drug trafficking that took place between 2005 and 2012.
“The possibility of a jail sentence has been well known in the community,” Mendeecees’ attorney, Donald Thompson said. “And he’s talked about that with kids who are coming up in difficult situations and have to make life choices, whether it’s a good idea to make a whole lot of money selling drugs or make less money and not have to be looking over your shoulder.”
Yandy took to Twitter after the sentencing and thanked fans for their continued support.
HollywoodLifers, do you think eight years is too long of a sentence?
