Unveiling Mariah Hamilton: YNW Melly’s Former Love Alleges Police Intimidation, Fearing Her Insider Knowledge


Ex-Girlfriend of Rapper YNW Melly Claims Police Threatened Her

In a shocking twist to the ongoing trial of rapper YNW Melly, his ex-girlfriend Mariah Hamilton has come forward with allegations that she has been threatened by the police. Melly, whose real name is Jamell Maurice Demons, is currently awaiting his second trial in Broward County, Florida, after the first trial ended with a hung jury in July.

Accused of the double murder of his two best friends, Anthony ‘YNW Sakchaser’ Williams and Christopher ‘YNW Juvy’ Thomas Jr, in October 2018, YNW Melly has been in custody since his arrest in 2019. Along with Melly, co-accused Cortlen Henry also faces two counts of murder and the possibility of life in prison if convicted. Both men have pleaded not guilty.

Who is Felicia Holmes?

During the first trial, Felicia Holmes, the mother of Mariah Hamilton, was called to the stand by the prosecutors. Holmes had given a statement to the police in 2018 when Hamilton was only 17 years old. The police believe that she was present during a phone call related to the murder. However, Holmes claimed during the trial that she felt threatened by the prosecutor’s office and the police department.

Lead prosecutor Kristine Bradley repeatedly tried to get Holmes to testify about her 2018 statement, even though the court had ruled that the statement would not be allowed. This led to an argument between Bradley and Holmes.

What did Mariah Hamilton say?

Recently, Mariah Hamilton, accompanied by her attorney Christopher Beres, gave an interview to Law and Crime’s ‘Sidebar’ podcast, marking the first time she spoke about the case or the trial to the media. Hamilton revealed that she has been actively trying to get an outstanding warrant lifted so that she can tell her side of the story. She stated, “I just want people to know that I’m not running because of any money or anything like that. It’s because I don’t want to go to jail for something that I didn’t do or something that I’m not a part of. I just feel like they’re looking at me wrong and what they’re showing is not true.”

Hamilton also explained the reason the police reached out to her, saying, “Because I was his girlfriend at the time, they thought I knew more than what I was telling them. Which I didn’t. So they were just harassing me. When the situation first happened, I was threatened. I was 17, about to turn 18. They came to my house telling me they were going to arrest me on accessory after the fact.” Hamilton’s mother, Felicia Holmes, was present during the interview and supported her daughter’s claims.
