Emanuel and Lattimore ended on bad terms years ago, which led to Lattimore quitting the show. During an interview with VH1 posted on Sunday, March 29, Emanuel gave commentary on the season 3 episode in which he proposed to Lattimore in Paris.
The “Black Ink” owner recounted the moment and claimed he was “in love love.” He added, “Puppy love s–t That’s crazy now that I look back at it.”
While watching the clip, Emanuel said he would’ve told his younger self to “run for the hills” and “jump off the bridge” instead of getting engaged to his ex-fiancée. “I used to really think I wouldn’t be able to make it without her,” Emanuel said. “Dude, as soon as you leave her, you’re good.”
The shop owner chuckled throughout the entire scene of him proposing to his ex. He warned others not to “go down the road” he went when it came to his relationship with Lattimore.
“Listen, to all you young guys out there that’s thinking with your emotions before your brain, please use me as an example of what not to do,” Emanuel noted. “That video made me realize how far I’ve come.”
Despite how much Emanuel claimed he was over Lattimore, “Black Ink” fans didn’t buy it.
“He still hurting😂. Ceaser knows he loved the hell out of Dutches, and probably still do a bit but of course he will never admit it”
“U still love her quit playin! Ceaser plz you guys were good. The fact that u laughing n saying all them dumb ish..means u still hurting..”
“He cried after this interview once he was alone to himself, while he’s sitting there uncomfortably laughing through the whole thing 😂😂 your not foolin Nobody fool. You were in love with that woman, and more than likely still secretly in love with her but your success has blinded you and turned you into an even more arrogant asshole 🙄🤦🏽♀️”
“I could tell by all that shit talking he still has a place for her in his big heart 😍😁”
Emanuel and Lattimore got engaged in 2015, but later called it quits in 2016. The Pretty N Ink owner claimed Emanuel cheated on her, while he also claimed she was unfaithful to him. The pair have absolutely no communication with each other now.
