Ceaser Emanuel speaks out about a crew member from the show stealing $5K from his shop.
We previously reported, Ceaser admitted that his longtime best friend, and castmate, Walter Miller, was involved in a robbery that took place at his tattoo shop on 125th shop in New York. Walter operated as the shop manager, and during the break-in money, and tools were stolen. Ceasar’s business partner and friend Ted looked over the surveillance footage and confirmed that Walt was indeed involved. After being confronted, Walt admitted to stealing $5,000.
“It’s not like some of the other cast members that came on after we was already on TV and already poppin’,” said Ceaser. “Me, Walt, Ted, and Puma have been with each other since day one. If you was to ask me for anything, especially Walt, I’m going to give it to you. And I’m not going to ask back for it. That was our relationship. Like Walt, you messed up here, don’t worry about it. Because as a team, we have to make sure all of us is strong or the weak link is going to f*ck the whole thing up.”
“I never thought Walt would do that to me. I’m not going to lie, it broke my heart. It cut deep because it’s not no TV sh*t,” Ceaser continued. “This is my real-life friend. Because the money he took, I would have given it to him in the blink of an eye. Like when he was homeless, it was me and Ted that helped get him on his feet. And that’s real life. When it came to his wedding, it was me that made sure he had a great ass wedding. Because everybody know Walt has a struggle in his life.”
Although Walt denies breaking into the shop, he did admit that he took wrongfully stole some money.
“Let me tell you something, Puma, I’m not gonna lie,” said Walt. “I did some dumb sh*t by trying to alter pricing on a tattoo and short the shop, expecting to cover it up before it came out. But, unfortunately, the break-in happened and then everything just spilled out.”
