It seems not everybody is exactly onboard with “Black Ink Crew” boss Ceaser Emanuel rekindling his friendship with former foe Paul “Puma” Robinson.
Last season, Emanuel and Robinson, who are childhood friends, ended their friendship on a high note after they managed to bury the hatchet. The two Brooklyn natives were thick as thieves during the first season of the reality show until the “Ink 124” owner felt Emanuel’s girlfriend at the time, Dutchess Lattimore, was causing a rift between them at the shop. Tension soon grew, and Robinson decided to quit “Black Ink” and start his own tattoo shop, which led to their huge falling-out.
Despite their past drama, the former enemies are now friends again, but Robinson’s wife Quani made it clear she was still suspicous about Emanuel’s current intentions. Not to mention, she’s still bitter about her former exchanges with the “Black Ink” owner and accused him of having her jumped during his beef with Robinson.
Quani, her husband and Emanuel decided to meet for Emanuel’s 40th birthday party, and, needless to say, she wasn’t here for the two old friends reuniting.
“I don’t know why Puma came back to your shop. Like, I actually don’t trust you,” she told Emanuel. “He’s promoting your business while he’s not promoting his own business. It seems like it benefiting you more than it’s benefitting him.”
Emanuel explained that he gave Robinson “half” of his shop and that they planned on “taking over Harlem.” His comments were apparently enough to make an already frustrated Quani angrily storm out of his birthday party.
Robinson apologized to his reconnected bestie before following his wife out of the door.
“Black Ink” viewers felt Quani was being melodramatic and slammed her for still holding a grudge Emanuel.
“She’s always been a damn sourpuss lol always miserable 😩 but I am happy puma and ceaser are friends again”
“Quani gets on my f-cking nerves bruh!! Like she one of the most extra mfkas I know. Girl get tf over it already their beef was like 5 years ago!”
“Quani keeping her storyline. Im over it. She is drama she hate Cesar but still eating off of his show.🤡 girl it was hella long ago let it go.”
Others felt indifferent.
“I don’t think she’s Trippin. I would never be cool with someone who I thought, got a female to come fight me. Her feelings are valid 💪🏽”
“Love Quani Ceas is fake so I understand her point”
