Many tuned in Monday night to the season premier of “Black Ink Crew Chicago”. The show was met with rave reviews at a new cast that all appeared to be well groomed for the cameras unlike what we saw from the NY cast.
One cast member, Rachel, raised questions when it was revealed that she had a 2nd child (after her first child with shop owner Ryan) with a big time R&B singer who’s name was bleeped out of the show.
Well after doing some digging, it came out that the child’s father is R&B singer Jeremih, and he’s requested to keep his name off of the show.
The singer carried on a relationship with Rachel throughout 2011 and 2012, which ultimately resulted in the birth of their now 3-year-old son Grey:
Jeremih quietly engaged in a custody battle with Rachel over their son last year and shared some details on it with Billboard.
Jeremih says he’s ultimately responsible for his stutter-steps, explaining that he was consumed by a court battle with his child’s mother while “Don’t Tell ‘Em” was rising. “I stopped caring about being Jeremih over the last few months,” he says. “A lot of people don’t know I have a 2-year-old son. His mom wasn’t allowing me to see him, and it was messing with me. I was internally unbalanced. But I just got out of that trial and I won.”
We’re just happy that Black Ink Crew has a cast who is perfectly fine with wearing chapstick and brushing their hair.
