“Black Ink Crew Chicago” ended in a bittersweet way for Charmaine. On the season finale, Neek proposed. It was a very happy moment for the couple. However, their happiness was overshadowed. It’s all because of a rumor Charmaine hasn’t been able to shake.

It’s been rumored Charmaine and Van slept together. According to Evenita, this took place in Vegas. She told Bella and Lily she heard it all go down. But with Evenita being previously fired as Van’s apprentice, some wondered if she was being honest.

Later on, Don told his version of events. He told producers that Charmaine and Van didn’t actually sleep together. But Charmaine went down on Van. When pressed by producers, Don said Van told him this.

Charmaine still denies anything happened. But she’s really upset with Don, Phor and Van. She even unfollowed all three on Instagram. As of late, she doesn’t feel like they’ve been acting very brotherly towards her. She also had some interesting things to say on the VH100 podcast, too.

She believes her issues with these men is rooted in jealousy. Charmaine has had a lot of opportunities come to her since being on the show. So she feels like that could be why she’s having so many issues with the men she thought were like brothers.

    I agree. I think the only ones who aren’t jealous of Charmaine are Ryan and Junior.

          I think you meant didn’t Don have s-x with Charmaine while he was in a relationship with Ashley? There, I fixed it for you. Some of you will go out of your way to not hold men responsible for anything. Also, what does any of this have to do with the topic at hand?

      Let’s be real, what value does she offer
      1. Tattoo artist – NOT

      WHICH BEGS THE QUESTION “WHY IS SHE EVEN THERE?.” And what would the basis of their jealousy be employment?

        Did you even read what she said? It doesn’t seem like you did. She said they are jealous of her because of the behind the scenes stuff. Outside of the show, Charmaine has had more opportunities than the rest of them outside of Ryan. Notice how Ryan isn’t the one being messy. It’s just Van, Phor and Don. Ryan is too busy to come for Charmaine. And too successful to allow producers to use him. That is not the case with the others. And Charmaine clearly has value if she is out here getting opportunities outside of Black Ink Crew.

    Where was Charmaine at when the problems happened between Ryan and Kat…whatbshebdo did she stay out of it and those to handle their issue…no I think not. She chose a side quick fast and in a hurry… Did she do what a person would had two friends in a beef would do. No she did. So nobody want to hear that sh*t she crying bout now. You mad people ain’t have your back in a rumor…a rumor. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black

      Why are you more angry at Charmaine than you are at Ryan, the person who literally cheated on his girlfriend and decided to be unprofessional and sleep with his employee? Did you forget everyone was mad at him because he slept with said employee, willingly, and then fired her like she was the only one in the wrong? That was an abuse of power and completely unethical. No one should have had Ryan’s back about that.

            Why are you acting like Don hasn’t also made an effort to be friends with Charmaine after he slept with her? I guess you don’t remember that Don and Ashley were at Charmaine’s birthday dinner and they were both there for her proposal. Clearly, everyone moved on except you.

          Why are you always so angry when you post on here? It’s not that serious.

    Charmaine keeps yelling to the rooftops. Van and I did not sleep together, we did not have any s-xual relations at all. I was on my period. Nobody has ever asked her did you give van head. That’s y Van was saying let it go charmaine u know we didn’t sleep together. But van told who? Don because van prob said I didn’t get a-s but I got head. Don got cheeks

    This is crazy to me. Charmaine needs to let it go, move on and get married to Neek. That is the only thing that matters at this point. Her man is not questioning it, so what the haters say don’t matter. Just let the girl be.

      If Charmaine is a hoe, what does that make the men on the show? The hatred y’all have for women is sickening. Y’all never hold men to the same standards.
