Personal Life

Mendeecees began a relationship with actress/singer Yandy Smith in 2008, and they married on May 25, 2015. The nuptials were filmed for the special "Love & Hip Hop Live: The Wedding," which was watched by more than two million viewers. The couple welcomed son Omare on July 16, 2012, and daughter Skylar on January 26, 2015.

Harris also has two sons from previous relationships: Mendeecees Jr. (born October 9, 2005), whose mother is Samantha Wallace, and Aasim (born September 7, 2011), whose mother is Erika DeShazo. In 2010, Mendeecees was charged with sexual assault, promoting prostitution, and child endangerment after he was accused of "forcing a 15-year-old girl to watch porn with him, expose herself to him, and perform oral sex on him" in 2009. Harris was acquitted in 2013 in a New Jersey court.

In 2015, Mendeecees pleaded guilty to drug trafficking charges and was sentenced to eight years in a minimum-security prison. He agreed to hand over his income from "Love and Hip Hop: New York," amounting to more than $100,000, as well as his 2011 Audi R8. His sentence was shortened because he took substance abuse, public speaking, parenting, and nutrition courses in prison, and he was released in January 2020.

In late 2016, it was revealed that Harris and Smith weren't legally married, and Yandy later said that she never filed the legal paperwork because she didn't want to be responsible for Mendeecees' debts, including the restitution he had to pay the government after his conviction. This was news to Harris, who believed that Yandy had filed the paperwork after his case was closed. While Mendeecees was in prison, Yandy adopted a teenage girl named Infinity Gilyard. In May 2021, Mendeecees and Yandy renewed their wedding vows in Dubai.
