Who's being honest in this messy situation?
Don’t you know by now that you shouldn’t mess with a mama when she’s mad? Samantha Wallace is trying to tell people the truth about what kind of a father Mendeecees has been for her sons since he’s been behind bars. According to her, he hasn’t been a father at all. Just as Mendeecees (or his wife Yandy) wish Little Mendeecees a happy birthday and talk about how great their relationship is, mom Samantha is saying that he won’t even talk to him any other day of the year. He should not be praised for being a father when he’s not even there.
Mendeecees was already well known for his real estate ventures, and he was coming up big time in the music business alongside his artist manager wife and second baby mama Yandy. He didn’t have to resort to selling drugs on the side to make money, yet he took the risk and did it anyway. Mendeecees pled guilty to trafficking heroin and cocaine between New York City and Rochester from 2006 to 2008. His lawyer Dawn Florio explained, “His conduct was limited to collecting drugs from one party and handing them to another. There are no clear allegations that he acted as a broker, set any prices, nor was aware of the scope of the criminal enterprise.”
While Mendeecees was awaiting sentencing for the crime, he gave up $170,000 he got from LHHNY and did community service programs like speaking to youth about the dangers of drugs and doing illegal things. Still, he reported to prison in December 2015. Recently, Dawn Florio tried to get his sentence reduced from eight years to five citing a change in federal sentencing guidelines, but U.S. District Judge Frank Geraci, Jr. said that he wouldn’t allow it.
To My Son
As Mendeecees sits in prison for the next few years, he tries to keep up with his family members, at least some of them. On October 9, he posted a touching tribute to his first-born son Little Mendeecees on Instagram. He wrote in part:
“O say Happy Birthday to you son. Makes me evaluate what this day really means, the day I became a father, All the promises I secretly made to you. All the expectations I had for you, for me, for us. Having children has changed my perspective in life, for myself as a person, as a man, but it all started with you.
The first separate human I really loved, you took selfish and made it selfless, you took me and replaced it with you, you took Mendeecess and made it ‘Jr. Everyday away from you hurts, but it makes me happy to know I’m a day closer to holding you in my arms again. I’ll never be further than a phone call and an open welcoming arm away from you.”
Considering that Mendeecees is in prison, he may not have written the sentiments himself, though he may have dictated what he wanted to say to someone who has access to his Instagram.
The Real Truth
While Mendeecees’ fans were touched by what he said, and Yandy even gave a shoutout to the speech on her Instagram, someone close to the young man called it out as being inauthentic. Little Mendeecees’ mom Samantha wrote in part about his speech,
“It is just not enough to wish him a happy birthday. Every year around this time LHHNY is about to air, all the phoniness come out. It’s funny how Mendeecees and Yandy have these great post and captions (which we all know Yandy is writing and posting for him) especially, for my son’s birthday, but where is the father when it comes to my son getting emotional support (we all know he is in jail). Most important my son needs his dad to talk to. Let’s mention for the past 10 months no phone calls, no letters being written, I am blocked from visits, so how is your son supposed to see him. I am not angry, just can’t understand the B.S. drama from their side.”
Samantha would know how much her son is speaking to his father for sure, so it makes it hard to believe everything that is being said by the jailbird father.
