‘Love & Hip Hop’ star Mendeecees Harris was sentenced to eight years in prison this morning after pleading guilty to a federal drug trafficking charge earlier this year, Rochester Democrat & Chronicle reports.

Mendeecees posted an emotional message on Instagram.

Mendeecees’ legal battle has been a central story line on ‘Love & Hip Hop NY.’ He and wife Yandy Smith tied the knot in a lavish televised ceremony shortly after he was released on $600,000 bail. The loving couple have three kids (including Mendeecees’ son from another relationship).
