Court documents revealed that Harris and two other men, Ronald Walker and Tyrus Harris, were charged with trafficking $2.5 million worth of heroin and cocaine from 2005 and 2012.

Authorities seized over $1.5 million dollars from safety deposit boxes associated with the defendants. $407,000 worth of jewelry (including Hublot, Rolex, and Cartier watches) and a 2012 Range Rover were also confiscated. Properties in Atlanta and Baltimore may be forfeited as well.

On January 24, Harris turned himself in for arrest and is expected to be arraigned in the drug case after completing his trial for sexual abuse of a 15-year-old in Jersey. Records show that Tyrus Harris and Walker pleaded not guilty at their arraignment on the drug trafficking charges.

Harris is the long-time boyfriend of fellow Love and Hip Hop star Yandy Smith. He is also the manager of rappers Vado and Webstar.
