Recently the "Love and Hip Hop New York" star, Yandy Smith, has found herself in the middle of a huge legal mess!! As some of you may know her boyfriend/baby daddy, Mendeecees Harris, last week was on trial for allegedly having sexual relations with an underage girl four years ago.
During this whole legal mess Yandy has tried her best to stay silent. This week she broke her silence and took to her personal blog to express her heartfelt thanks to those who sent her positive vibrations:
To My Supporters,
The past few weeks have been some of the hardest days, hours, and minutes of my life. I found myself torn between a man that I know and love, and an accusation that makes me sick to my stomach. I hoped and prayed that someone I loved so dearly could not be guilty of such a disgusting and shameful act… I hoped, but I did NOT assume.
I chose to stay silent until I was able to hear both sides and form my own opinion. I went to court every single day; I listened intently to the case from both sides ready to face whatever truth was revealed.
In the end, the truth is Mendeecees Harris may be many things, but he is NOT guilty of the heinous accusations made against him. I won't get into much detail because at the other side of this is a young woman that regardless of the outcome, remains broken. I pray that she is able to move past this and realize her full potential and I pray that the world is able to accept that in this case justice was served.
Smith used the rest of the letter to stress that she is against all forms of abuse against women and children. She also revealed that she is launching a mentoring program for young girls aged 12 to 17 called The EGL P.U.D. Initiative (Partners Uplifting Our Daughters) in the spring.
