Former Black Ink Crew star Dutchess Lattimore recently revealed some harrowing details of her life after leaving the VH1 show last year. On a recent episode of Sister Circle Live, Lattimore describes to the hosts how she faced serious depression and suicidal thoughts after leaving the show after its fifth season in 2017.

”When I first walked away from the show, I wanted to kill myself. I went through serious depression. I went through getting harassment from cast members, death threats from them, people that they would send to do disrespectful things. They would call my shop, and my mom, my mom runs my tattoo shop, [they would] tell my mother the most heinous things that they were going to do to me if I ever came back to New York… It got to a point where I didn’t think that I would ever escape it.”

Dutchess went on to explain that even after going through the pain that was a result of being on the show, she was faced with public humiliation once the new season of Black Ink Crew aired, as she says that she was a topic of discussion in every episode.
