Walt has been going through some deep drama and no one had any idea.
In the Black Ink Crew sneak peek, Ceaser and Ted learn that Walt has been forced to send his kids away out of desperation. Finances have been tough and slowly but surely, Walt began to lose everything. He’s now “renting a room in the projects” and Ted is wondering why. Walt never flipped out before the way he did in the shop, but that’s because “no one knows what’s going on with him.” He had to “send the kids away to live with their mom in Illinois,” saying it was his only choice.
It’s messing him up because he “never wanted to let [his kids] down like this.” He doesn’t “want to be nobody’s burden. He’s not happy or proud of it.” In actuality, he’s embarrassed and didn’t even want Ted and Cease seeing where he lives. This explains the extra drinking and Ceaser feels it’s time for Walt to detox his whole soul. Thankfully, he has a [Black Ink] family who is going to help.
Don’t miss an all new Black Ink Crew, next Wednesday at 9/8c!
