Mendeecees Harris’ Victim Says She Was Coerced, Paid For Sex! [Details]
Rucuss staffFebruary 6, 2013
Love & Hip Hop New York star Mendeecees Harris is on trial for molesting a 15-year old.
Harris, who is LHHNY star Yandy Smith’s boyfriend, was charged with promoting prostitution, criminal sexual contact, aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault by a foster parent/guardian, endanger welfare of children and a few more charges. On Tuesday, Harris listened to testimony from his alleged victim.
The alleged victim, who is now 19, is the daughter of Harris’s oldest son’s mother.
The alleged victim in the teen-sex trial of Mendeecees Harris testified Tuesday that Mendeecees told her she was “better than [her] mother” after coercing her into oral sex by revealing his knowledge of a dark secret from her past.
Speaking in a barely audible whisper, her voice sometimes breaking, the now-19-year-old woman told jurors in Hackensack that the former “Love & Hip Hop” personality went from being a “father figure” she could trust to someone who forced her into sex for money after she moved into his Lodi home in the summer of 2009.
Now holding two jobs in the South, the tall, slender woman told jurors she had to quit nursing school to be at the trial because “you can’t miss that many days of class.”
After moving in with Harris, his girlfriend and her brothers, the woman testified, she routinely reported to him for permission to go out, among other reasons. Her mother was usually at work while she was home with Harris and the boys after school, she said, during questioning by Assistant Bergen County Prosecutor Demetra Maurice.
Then came an afternoon when, with no one else home, she realized in the shower that she didn’t have a towel.
“I asked him to get me one, and he did,” the woman testified. “Then he came into my room and suggested I let him masturbate on me, but I just laughed.”
The suggestions continued, she said, until she relented. She said Harris then gave her $15 or $20 “for lunch or maybe a ball game.”
But that wasn’t enough for him, the woman testified: Using an extremely private piece of information, he coerced her into providing oral sex.
“He told me he knew I had been raped when I was 8 years old,” she said, “and he found out from my mother.
“ ‘Your mom doesn’t want you here’,” the woman said Harris told her before exposing himself.
She said she complied with his desire out of spite “to get back at my mom.”
“I felt betrayed by her,” she said. “I didn’t tell her about it until I was 14, and it was something I didn’t want anyone to know.”
