The rivalry between Dutchess and Sky has played out across the tattoo reality show universe, and it only got worse when Dutchess seemed to go for a petty kill-strike, getting Sky’s son involved. Now Dutchess is saying that the lowblow was the call of the show producers.
Diehards of the show have no doubt already seen the juicy interview from Sky’s adopted son that was hosted by This Is 50… inside Dutchess’ shop. However, last night was the first time that the interview made it on the air in the Black Ink Crew universe. In the latest episode, fans could see Sky tearing up as she watched her son spill all sorts of vitriol about her while surrounded by the trappings of her rival’s business.
If it was planned by Dutchess, it would be an all-time dirty hit.
After social media dragged her for bringing kids into the fight, the artist felt the need to clear her name. In a post to Instagram, she said that the interview inside her shop was all the work of Big Fish Entertainment, the production company that makes all of the Black Ink shows.
“I want to be completely clear I have receipts and proof of it all!” she wrote. “Producers paid for this interview! The son was there with his FATHER who advised the interview! The whole interview is available on this is 50 where u see the parts bigfishusa avoided to use cause it would defame the lies they tell for story lines!”
Pay No Attention…
It’s the second time in a week that a member of the larger Black Ink Universe has pulled back the curtain on the show to reveal the mechanics of Big Fish.
Black Ink Crew: Chicago star and supposed 9Mag shop owner said that he was no longer in control of the operation, claiming that all of his employees were actually employed by the show and threatened to quit in a drunken Instagram screed.
“Throw the whole show away. I quit anyway,” he began.
“That space ain’t mine,” he said. “[The artists] don’t work for me. They all work for Big Fish Entertainment. I’m just on a show with them ppl. That’s not 9Mag no more it’s the set and cast of Black Ink Crew: Chicago.”
Come daylight, he reportedly walked back his comments, saying that he was drunk. Though, it’s not the first time that he’s expressed regret over the way that the show goes.
“This went on today in my city,” he wrote on Twitter underneath a photo of Chance The Rapper and President Obama meeting at a charity event. “Makes me hate what I’m a part of representing my city like a coon on TV. Apologize 2 ppl of Chicago.”

However, Henry quickly turned that around as well.
“I will do better,” he said. “My actions, my foundations, my time and energy donated Where it should be. This picture let’s me know I’m not doing enough for my ppl to not have even known about it let alone invited to it if I was on my sh*t. And I’m not. So here I come. Salute!”
