Mendeecees Harris’ alleged victim shared shocking details of their affair when she testified in his sexual assault case yesterday.
When Mendeecees showed up to court on in Hackensack, New Jersey, yesterday, his famous girlfriend Yandy Smith was onhand for the proceedings, according to CliffViewPilot.com.
The "Love & Hip Hop" stars sat in the courtroom as a New Jersey teen, who claims that she would occasionally stay with Mendeecees when there was touble at home with her mother, whom he was also dating. The 19-year-old recalled that he always "made [her’ feel comfortable" when she would go to him for help and he allowed her to vent before giving her his opinion on the matter.
"He would give me advice. He’d say ‘It’ll be okay between you and your mom’,” the teen testified. But the relationship changed between Mendeecees and the girl, who was 15 at the time, when he began to ask her for sexual favors.
The teen recalls that it all started one afternoon when they were the only ones in the house. She was taking a shower when she realized that she had forgotten her towel and asked him to get her one. "He did,” the woman testified. “Then he came into my room and suggested I let him masturbate on me, but I just laughed.”
Reportedly, Mendeecees kept asking her until she reluctantly agreed to do it, leaving her $15 or $20 afterward “for lunch or maybe a ball game.” This could be where his promotion of prostitution charges stem from.
And the victim claims that things did not end there. She claims that Mendeecees later coerced her into giving him oral sex by slapping her with some very private and hurtful personal information.
“He told me he knew I had been raped when I was 8 years old and he found out from my mother," she said before claiming that he knew her mom wanted to kick her out. She said she gave him what he wanted to get back at her mother.
“I felt betrayed by her,” the young woman said. “I didn’t tell her about [the rape] until I was 14, and it was something I didn’t want anyone to know.”
From there Mendeecees kept coming to the victim, demanding that she perform sexual acts, which she admittedly provided for “$15 or $20” when she needed money. She charges that he later began to bring her brothers into the arrangement. Whenever they would ask him for a few dollars he would allegedly tell them, "Talk to your sister. She knows what she has to do.”
The girl said that she finally came clean when she discovered that Mendeecees and her mother had begun to discuss marriage. One night the victim’s mother took her phone away for missing curfew and she found a message from the VH1 reality star. This subsequently started a fight that resulted in the mother breaking up with Mendeecees and kicking the victim out of her house.
When he found the teen the next day, she recalls, “He said she didn’t know anything, so don’t say anything. It was something he would ‘take to his grave.’ He [also] told me they were done.
For his part Mendeecees charges that the alleged victim is lying about all of her claims against him and denies having any type of sexual relationship with her. He also said that he never blackmailed her and she’s just looking for a way to get some money out of him now that he’s on TV.
If convicted Mendeecees faces up to 20 years in prison.
