It appears that the rumors are true: Love & Hip Hop New York’s Mendeecees and Yandy Smith-Harris never married, choosing instead to maintain their fib in order to draw out potential baby mamas and keep their demands at bay. A just-leaked clip from an upcoming LHHNY episode confirms the rumor, which had swirled for weeks following the news that two of Mendeecees’ baby mamas
would be joining the show and teaming up against Yandy this season.
According to the most reliable gossip to this point, Mendeecees and Yandy Smith-Harris never married as part of a “strategic fake-out,” and nothing about their love was false. It was alleged that Yandy deliberately kept her name off of the marriage certificate at she and Mendeecees wedding ceremony, so that their assets would never be joined and any baby mamas to approach Yandy looking for money from Mendeecees while he was in prison would be unable to claim it. (By the time of Mendeecees and Yandy’s LHHNY wedding special, Mendeecees was already under investigation for the drug trafficking charges that would later put him in prison for eight years.)
