Charmaine Bey felt like it was time to walk away from “Black Ink Crew Chicago.
“Black Ink Crew Chicago” star Charmaine Bey recently announced that she has decided to leave the show. Some fans probably weren’t too surprised by the announcement. The latest season was a very tough one for Charmaine. Her father passed away from cancer. Plus, she was pregnant with baby number two. She was still struggling to process her mother’s death as well. To make matters even more difficult, Charmaine’s personal issues were beginning to affect her tattoo shop, 2nd City Ink. After the impact of the pandemic, Charmaine was hoping to get the shop back on track. But all her personal issues were stressing her out so much that she was making decisions that Miss Kitty and others didn’t like. So this led to blowups.
In the end, Charmaine fired Kitty from her shop. Tattoo artist Prince Spencer was also fired. And Draya Penzo is the artist who decided to leave on her own because she wasn’t getting along with Charmaine.
Charmaine would later say that Kitty and Draya never really worked at her shop. And they were just there for entertainment purposes. But that didn’t stop the backlash she received from fans of the show.
While some fans were wondering if it was her issues with Ryan Henry that may have led to her walking away, Charmaine recently revealed that being accused of colorism was the last straw.
