“Black Ink Crew Chicago” star Ryan Henry has folks wondering who he’s actually chopping down since the mid-season finale of his show suggested he was back together with his baby mama, Rachel.
In case you missed it, Ryan and Rachel took a family vacay together recently and seemed cozy. The footage was shared on TV after the two had a conversation about putting the past in the past for the sake of their “family”. So is Ryan back with Rachel? Or is he coupled up with Ne-Yo’s ex, Crystal Smith?

Thank you everyone for our SEASON 6 PREMIERE!!! Everyone who came to the theatre, everyone who watched at home! I told you this was a different season and it’s all meant for y’all! Not so much for entertainment, but to give you the real to relate to! What did you guys think of last night?! 🙌🏾 #9MAG #BlackInkCHI #2ndCityInk
Ryan and Crystal were on IG looking cozy at a party during All-Star weekend in Chicago. The 9Mag boss actually clarifies his relationship status on a recent podcast for VH1 called VH100.
When Ryan was asked by VH100 host LaJune about THAT clip of him and Crystal Smith looking cozy at an All-Star Week after-party, he basically dodged the question.
“Uhhh, I don’t really know what you’re talking about!”
As far as him and Rachel being back together, Ryan clarifies that she’ll always be family.
“I don’t think that’s what it looks at all. Most people understand that we are family. We are family and do things like take family trips. Her family is my family and vice versa. We don’t have to be in a relationship to have our kids experience what family is on a trip.
Ryan adds that he didn’t have a Valentine this year. But, something tells us he isn’t exactly “lonely”.
I spent Valentine’s Day with the gym. I didn’t have a Valentine this year, maybe next year.
We don’t blame Ryan for not settling down when he has so many options. What are your thoughts on his love life?
