It looks like Charmaine isn’t the only one who isn’t happy with “Black Ink Crew Chicago.” The last season was a tough one for her. She was accused of pleasuring Van orally during the group’s trip to Vegas. Don later told producers that Van is the one who told him.

Charmaine denied this and she slammed the men on the show in an interview. However, it appears she may have been able to work things out with Ryan, Phor, and Don. Her mother passed away recently and it seems as if the men have been there for her.

Van has been noticeably silent though. Well, until now. Hours ago, he threatened to expose everyone on the show. And it looks as if he’s ready to spill a lot of tea. Check out the screenshot below.

      So… No neck is upset he couldn’t run the same out of control shop/employees that he dogged Ryan about. He should be embarrassed instead of bitter.

      Wait to see if he in the opening sequence then he still on the show…if he ain’t so be it.

    I think Van and Lily aren’t on the show anymore. Ryan said he isn’t firing people this season so hopefully the season will be good. But I don’t like it when people do this. If you’re going to spill tea, just do it. We don’t need a heads up.

      Yes, say what you’re going to say period. I don’t need nor want clues. I need the tea.

    Wow Van I thought you would walk away like a man , well here come the b-tchness you look bigger than that !

    Looooooolllllll! Sorry Van, but you seem desperate at this point. It’s evident that he no longer works so he needs to stir commotion to stay in the light. If u wanted to really spill some tea, then u shoulda just came out and said, but now u look like a dirt bag that’s wants get even on any level. BYE Felicia!!!

      You obviously tapped on it to be noisy so you could hear the tea…then you want to call him names…people are so judgmental…

      Lol Van has a very successful shop. I’m sure this is just a plot. To get viewers and for them to continue to make money off of these shows

      • Kari

        Big facts!! Van has his own shop and clothing line…Van checking a bag!

        You’re the only one Ina string of grammatically nightmarish comments to speak the truth. Can isn’t bitter. He’s under contract to stir up viewership and interest in a dying show full of manufactured plotlines.

        These shows may have started out half true at one time with staged meetings, poorly thought out parties full of enemies (i.e., Charmaine and Don’s lady), fake weddings and the obligatory stupid group trip. Now they have descended into desperation with concocted race issues (millions of Latinx people use that word in NYC because we use it), scripted shop splits, s-xual.accusatiins that aren’t even near true (Neek didn’t care because he’s in on it) and fake firings. What was once salaciously driven beefs for entertainment, has now become full on soap opera level writing.

        Exits like Kat Tat moving on to open her own shop are very real, as is Vans “firing” which is his very real exit over a year ago and remaining on the show as a plot device. Lily likely has a day job and was on only to stir the racial ploy as she was hired to do, but while the new shop is real, the ole shop merely functions as a set for the show, just as Black Ink 113th street store is never open for business anymore because it’s only for shooting the show.

          You’re shading people for using bad grammar on here, yet you have multiple typos in your own comment. Anyway, the Lily situation was not a “concocted race issue.” Black people in NYC being okay with non-black people using the N word does not mean that black people throughout the country don’t have an issue with it. And we have every right to.

    He must’ve gotten fired by production possibly big fish productions and he’s ready to let the cat out the bag. If he no longer under contract then he can say all he needs to say. I’ll be with my tea cup ready for the tea hunny umkay. But then again it’s he credible cause he claimed Charmaine proceeded to sodomise him by performing felatio on him (and yes oral s-x is sodomy look it up I read the dictionary umkay) and we don’t even know if that’s true. However we also know that none of the shows are real so we don’t really know what’s real and what ain’t real. Hell people fake a whole life for a check and have a completely different world and spouse.

    Van been should’ve left he disrespectful and Ryan gave him the chance to run a shop but he wanted to drink Henny with the Bros instead of handling business like he should’ve it’s hard enough being a black business owner and it’s mfs like him that give black businesses a bad name. Cursing out females not getting business he should’ve been left. The mf need anger Management.

    I hope that all this is for TV and that you are still friends with Ryan seeing you were the one who inspired him to do this type of work! Unless that part was scripted also, money ànd fame broke up friends, but if it’s real than I think it All went to your Head and that’s your fault

    How convenient every year just prior to start of season there’s some bombshell story that must be told for each of these shows. They are all so very scripted.

  17. Deirdre

    November 18, 2019 at 6:48 pm

    I Love all of these shows. Van should Stop talking about everyone else and speak of himself. What about you and your “girlfriend “. Spill that TEA…imma continue to watch tho.

      Van should have been fired a long time ago. He was always disrespectful to Ryan. Most of the cast was disrespectful. All they wanted to do was party and go on trips. There was hardly ever any tattoo going on. Ryan gave him an opportunity to manage a business, but he couldn’t take care of business
      They were all disrespectful to Ryan.It doesn’t matter how long they worked for him they are the Employees and Ryan the Employer.

    This is Ceaser & Puma ALL OVER AGAIN. Why is NO ONE seeing this? SIMILAR STORYLINES. Rachel is Duchess, Don is Teddy, Phor is Walter, Charmaine is a bit of Donna & Sky, Lily is Young Bae. Van is Puma & Ryan is Ceaser.. Danielle is Kitty, Kat (is/was) Tati.

    Van your work doesn’t look too hot. Ryan was about to FIRE you so how you going to shade the cast? Look at your OWN skeletons in YOUR closet before you come for anyone else.
