What happened between Ryan Henry and his best friend?
One story that recently spread on the internet revolved around Black Ink Crew: Chicago’s Ryan Henry. The tattoo artist became a VH1 reality show favorite for bringing cameras into his shop and personal life on the series.
Though Henry’s encountered his share of drama on Black Ink with friends, family, and castmates, his actions off camera are causing pain for those around him and have some fans eyeing him differently. The now-viral accusations of him violating bro code with his best friend’s woman have taken a toll.
All the attention prompted Henry to address the situation and issue a public apology to his former best friend, Anthony Lindsey.

Lindsey posted a lengthy note on Instagram explaining that Henry slept with his son’s mother. Not only was Henry his close friend, but also his child’s godfather. Lindsey—who’s not a cast member on Black Ink—shared that while he battled stage 3 cancer, Henry and his ex-girlfriend engaged in a sexual relationship for a year and a half.
Lindsey found out about the affair when he discovered flirty text exchanges between the pair. He wrote that he was hurt, confused, and broken about the ordeal and his son is affected too.
“My son asks to go to Ryan’s but says he doesn’t want to see Ryan because Ryan and mommy did something to you. He’s four, why is this in his life?” Lindsey wrote.
Black Ink viewers are aware of Ryan’s on-off relationship with his own child’s mother, Rachel. Both couples were friends, and Lindsey decided to tell Rachel about the betrayal. Lindsey captioned the post by saying Henry threatened his life because he told her about the affair.
Once the internet caught wind, many railed on Henry for being disloyal and called him all sorts of names. He posted a response alluding to Lindsey’s narrative and claimed that there’s more to the story, but to many, it came off as if he didn’t care.
