There is some major drama brewing with the cast of Black Ink Crew Chicago. Star Ryan Henry had previously been rumored to have had an affair with best friend Anthony Lindsey’s baby mama. Ryan took to Instagram to admit that the rumors are actually true.
Ryan Henry Admitted To Sleeping With Anthony Lindsey’s Baby Mama
Ryan posted a video on Instagram admitting to sleeping with Anthony’s baby mama Nina Marie. The pair were formerly best friends. He said that this happened about a week prior and that he and Anthony already spoke about it and cleared the air. “I hurt people that I care about badly,” Ryan said in the video. “I disrespected myself and my family.”
“Just to be clear, I’m not the victim in this,” he continued. “Everybody that surrounds me was. This particular moment is definitely not about me. It’s about me apologizing publicly because so many people will feel that I didn’t say anything or some people will feel that I didn’t care.” He also went on to explain that the reason he did not come forward with this information sooner is that he has been dealing with his own struggles with depression.
The Drama Continued As Nina Opened Up About Alleged Abuse
The news about the affair was only half the story that the Black Ink Crew star brought to social media. Nina broke her silence on Instagram and came out with allegations of abuse against Anthony. While she admitted it was wrong to sleep with Ryan behind Anthony’s back, she alleged that their relationship was filled with domestic violence and abuse.
Nina went on to post a video flipping through discharge papers from the hospital on one of the nights of the alleged abuse.
“The first incident completely caught me by surprise, I was so in love and felt totally betrayed. I never knew him to be abusive,” she said in a post showing off her bruises. “After the first round of abuse I immediately obtained a restraining order and tried to move forward. Newly pregnant and alone afraid of what was to come for me as a single mother I let him back into my life when I was almost 9 mos pregnant.”
“This man has hurt me over and over and over again and over and over and over again I’ve forgiven him” she continued. “What hurts the most is the one time I make a mistake, which in my opinion is not as traumatic or terrible as what he has done, and he decides that publicly bashing me is the way to go when I’ve consistently dealt with our issues PRIVATELY.”
Anthony went on to post a screenshot of a conversation that he had with Nina. He claims the abuse was the other way around and that Nina was the one that instigated it. “Her crazy a** was fighting me! It shows me as the victim I refused to press charges” he said. “I refused to even post this back then. Public record go look it up.”
In the comments on most of the Instagram posts, fans of the stars suggested that the drama be dealt with off of social media.
