Emanuel got into a public fight with daughter Cheyenne, later addressed it on ‘Black Ink Crew’

In Jan. 2021, Emanuel’s 16-year-old daughter, Cheyenne, accused her father of pulling her out of the shower while naked and beating her “like a dog in the street” during an Instagram Live broadcast.

The teenager claims Emanuel drunkenly broke several doors in order to get to her and reportedly threw a speaker at her head, resulting in the police responding. The shop owner’s girlfriend, realtor Suzette Samuel, slammed the teenager several times online in response and went on rants about Cheyenne’s mother, Crystal Torres, that she uploaded to social media.

During season 9, Emanuel addressed the feud, claiming he and his daughter had a good relationship until she went to live with her mother during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Once she returned, the shop owner claims Cheyenne turned into a “different person.”

According to Emanuel, he asked her to do the dishes, but she refused and cussed at him, opting to listen to music instead. The 42-year-old also noted that the police arrived but claimed they left without any action. Emanuel said she made the allegations a couple of months after returning home and admitted he felt “betrayed” by her claims. 

Is Emanuel still dating Suzette Samuel?

The Black Ink owner and his daughter frequently clashed over his relationship with Samuel as she felt he acted as more of a father figure to his girlfriend’s kids than her.

Cheyenne began getting more upset over Samuels’ posts as they included her children calling Emanuel “dad,” moving into his house, and hanging out at theme parks.

Emanuel’s girlfriend and daughter began throwing shots at each other on social media, and fans wanted to draw a line as Cheyenne is a minor. The New York native also started getting backlash because they wondered why he would allow his girlfriend to speak about his daughter disrespectfully publicly, but he remained with her.

During a 2021 episode in season 9, Emanuel noted he wanted to take a break from Samuel, and fans noticed they unfollowed each other on social media. It’s unclear if they have reunited since then. Black Ink Crew Season 10 returns Feb. 21, 2022.
