Is 'Black Ink Crew' Star Young Bae Dating? Co-parenting Son Niko with Ex-husband Rob
Black Ink Crew: New York star Young Bae has been through a lot since her childhood days. The main reason behind that was her father’s abusive behavior towards her, her mother, and her sister.
Although she managed to escape those harsh times and currently runs a successful tattoo shop in Times Square, New York, sadness doesn’t seem to leave her sight. However, this time the sadness was caused by her personal life affairs.
Who Is Young Bae Dating?
The reality TV star is currently single and hasn’t been dating anyone in a while. Her single relationship status is also visibly clear through her Instagram handle, where she is yet to share any pictures with a handsome hunk, who might be her partner.
However, that doesn’t sum up her personal life details. Though she is allegedly single now, she was in a relationship in the past. Young Bae was in a romantic relationship with Bobby Robert, aka, Rob, a former wrestler plus her customer.
In the initial days, the two were happy and their togetherness seemed to be great. While they were still dating, on May 19, 2018, the duo welcomed a son named Niko Blue.
After a short period, they decided to get engaged and eventually shared the wedding vows too. However, their relationship wasn’t perfect and slowly and steadily it began to break. In one episode of Black Ink Crew, it was shown that Rob had left the house after having a fight.
Young Bae had asked her mother to come to her house from South Korea. After Young Bae’s mother reached Bae’s house, in the U.S., the two discuss the situation, but, Bae already had made up her mind to get a divorce.
She told her mother, “Rob left the house. Every time we fight, he leaves. So, I decided to get a divorce. So Rob gets to leave the house and I just sit here and wait for him?”
Although Bae’s mother consulted her daughter to think about her decision, Bae was firm on her decision. Later, it was reported that Young Bae filed for divorce and her relationship with Rob is over.
Furthermore, after the couple separated, Rob never made any further appearances on the VH1 show, Black Ink Crew: New York.
The Fallen Duo Is Co-Parenting Their Son
Young Bae and Rob might not be a married couple anymore, but they are still parents to their 3-year-old son, Niko. And, it seems that the two are doing their best to co-parent their child.
Rob’s presence in his son’s life and his efforts can be clearly seen through his Instagram handle. He usually shares some adorable father-son pictures. The same efforts have been done by the baby-mama, Young Bae.
On September 6, 2020, Rob shared two pictures through his Instagram. In those pictures, he was seen alongside his ex-wife and their son, Niko. He also had added a lovely caption that read, “We put in work so you live worry-free, no matter what you will always have us both Niko. #nikosparents #goodparenting101 #rasingalegend #growingupblue”
Going by that, it seems that despite all the sadness and differences, the once-married couple is trying their best to take care of their children and are not letting their broken relationship hamper their son’s future.
