Yandy Smith Plans To Legally Marry Mendeecees
Yandy Smith plans to make her love official to Mendeecees Harris. In an interview with Bossip, the Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star explains that she’s backtracking on her original decision to only spiritually marry her partner Mendeecees. The site reports,
The couple had a televised wedding, but Yandy later revealed that she never went though with the legal part. “We have definitely decided to go ahead and do the paperwork and all that stuff, not that I was so concerned or cared about that stuff, but it meant a lot to him,” Yandy told BOSSIP. “So it was only right.”
The reality star said the process of legally marrying Mendeecees – who is serving eight years for drug trafficking – is much more difficult because of his incarceration.
“With him being away, we have to re-register, get things notarized and all that stuff,” Yandy said, adding that they still wouldn’t get conjugal visits because he’s in federal prison.
Yandy also said she had no doubt that Mendeecees’ bid for a shorter sentence would be a success. Mendeecees recently asked the court to lower his prison sentence because he said the judge put him away under expired sentencing guidelines and would be a force for good on the streets by encouraging young people to stay out of the street life.
“You will absolutely see Mendeecees sooner than you think,” she said. “They put in a motion, so we’ll see what happens.”
