This Is The Richest Black Ink Crew Cast Member

The jury is still out on whether Black Ink Crew will be returning for a 10th season on VH1. Season 9 of the popular reality TV series premiered in April last year, with ten initial episodes running till June.

Another 12 episodes of the same season were broadcast from February to May 2022. The success of Black Ink Crew has brought about the advent of a spin-off series, titled Black Ink Crew: Chicago, which so far consists of seven seasons and 100 episodes.

The original show is set in Harlem, New York City and has seen dozens of cast members in its 174-episode history so far. But who among these stars is the richest of them all?

8 Puma Robinson – $150,000

Puma Robinson has featured in all but one of the Black Ink Crew seasons so far. He missed out on Season 5 of the show, after having been a core part of the main cast for the first four seasons. He returned in Season 6 as a guest star, and later in a supporting role in Season 7.

Robinson was fully reinstated to main cast status in the two most recent seasons of the show. His total estate is worth an estimated $150,000.


7 O’Shit “Richard” Duncan – $350,000

O’Shit Duncan started off as a starring cast member in the first five seasons of Black Ink Crew. He played a more supporting role in Seasons 6 and 7, before being demoted even further into a guest role in the two most recent seasons of the show.

His name is normally censored as “Richard” Duncan on the series. Originally hailing from South Carolina, the 37-year-old’s net worth is rumored to stand at around the $350,000 mark.

6 Sky Days – $500,000

Sky Days started out her time on Black Ink Crew as a guest cast member in the first season of the show, back in 2013. From the second season onwards, though, she was promoted to a regular, replacing Alex Estevez who was fired from the show.

According to multiple outlets online, Days is said to be worth around $500,000 today.

5 Dutchess Lattimore – $800,000

Dutchess Lattimore has not been on Black Ink Crew in the last four seasons, but she was a starring cast member in the first five seasons of the show. Unfortunately she had to deal with incidents of racism and a spell of depression following her exit, but she did manage to bounce back.

Lattimore is now the proud owner of a tattoo shop in Charlotte, North Carolina, and is also a radio host. She is estimated to have a net worth of about $800,000.

4 Donna Lombardi – $1 Million

Donna Lombardi joined Black Ink Crew in Season 3, originally as a supporting cast member. She was then promoted to become one of the stars of the show from the following season onwards.

Lombardi was in a relationship with Alex Robinson from the show, and they even got engaged in 2019. They have since split up, however. The 29-year-old has a net worth of $1 million.

3 Sassy Bermudez – $1 Million

Like Donna Lombardi, Seasons 1, 2 and 3 star Sassy Bermudez is also worth $1 million. After spending those initial years on the show as one of the main cast members, the New York City native left the show, reportedly as a consequence of false information peddled by Dutchess Lattimore about her.

Bermudez did not entirely cut ties with the show, however, and has been back in both supporting and guest roles over the years.

2 Ceasar Emanuel – $2.5 Million

Ceasar Emanuel is the de facto king of Black Ink Crew, and the one cast member who has been a regular in every single season of the show so far. He was famously in an on-and-off relationship with Dutchess Lattimore, until they permanently called it quits.

Unfortunately for Emanuel, his spell on the show appears to have come to an end, if indeed there will be a Season 10. After a video of him hitting his dog went viral, he was fired by VH1. He at least has a $2.5 million net worth to console him.

1 Teddy Ruks – $4 Million

Teddy Ruks is not just a tattoo artist and entrepreneur, he is also a rapper and an actor. It is no wonder, then, that he stands head and shoulders above all his Black Ink Crew cast members as the richest, with a net worth of around $4 million.

Ruks was a supporting cast member on the show in the first three seasons, but has been starring in each of those that followed after that. He got to showcase his acting skills in the movie True to the Game 2 in 2020.
