Ryan Henry is a Chicago-based tattoo artist. He came into the limelight via the VH1 reality series Black Ink Crew: Chicago. He is a businessman apart from his reality TV career. He owns a tattoo shop called 9Mag in Chicago.
Black Ink Crew: Chicago is known for dramas happening in front of the camera. Ryan Henry couldn't escape it either. His former best friend Anthony Lindsey accused him of sleeping with blogger Nina Marie in October 2020. Ryan did apologize but his reputation has suffered major damage.
Ryan and his high school sweetheart Rachel were together before this whole scandal happened. The two have reportedly split from one another.
Ryan is seen discussing the matter with his co-star Charmaine Bey in an exclusive clip ahead of the 4 October 2021 season premiere. Charmaine despite being a close friend, has held him accountable for the mistake.

Has Ryan Split From Rachel?
Ryan and Rachel had a tumultuous relationship. They were an on-again-off-again couple for a very long time. The couple got blessed with a son named Mason on the 2nd of September 2007. They two lived together in Chicago along with their child despite not being married.

Ryan said this in his apology:
I hurt people that I care about badly. I disrespected myself and my family. Just to be clear, I’m not the victim in this. Everybody that surrounds me was.
And this was what Rachel had to say about Ryan and Kat:
I don’t know what that moment was that y’all saw … The night was a blur, I’m not gonna lie. There might’ve been a little bit of friendliness going on, but as you continue to watch the season, you’ll find out more
Rachel too had a relationship with R&B singer/songwriter, Jeremih right after Kat and Ryan's affair. Their relationship ended when Rachel became pregnant with her second child named Grey. Ryan had accepted the baby as his. He had also gifted his girlfriend Rachel with a Mercedes Benz on Mother’s day of 2018. Everything was going perfectly before Ryan and Rachel split their union yet again at the beginning of 2019.
Fans had been hoping for the news of the couple getting back together. But the whole scandal of Ryan and Nina Marie has thinned out its possibility. The two have not been together after that.
