Tattoo artist admits to owing money in back child support, but not as much as the media is reporting

"Black Ink Crew" star Ceaser Emanuel is addressing his arrest earlier this week over back child support and is claiming it was the doing of his "crazy baby mama."

As previously reported, the tattoo artist and reality star was arrested Monday evening in New York City on a warrant for failure to pay child support. Emanuel was in the middle of inking a female client when authorities cuffed him.


After his release, Emanuel hopped on Instagram to give his version of events. He wrote:

"Media is crazy.... Now I owe 20k. But I get released with NO BAIL.This is what happens when you miss a Court date,which is a regular bench warrant . But when you have an overzealous police officer AND A CRAZY BM that just want to have their 15 mins of Fame.You got motherfuckers coming in to arrest you while you tattooing,Which is crazy to me but let people tell it.I am not a deadbeat dad ,when I pay more child support in a year than people will make in their lifetime. Now I owe a little money but no where near 10k. What is fucked up about this system is a scorned woman can use the system like this & get away with the bullshit.IF I NEVER GOT SERVED COURT PAPERS ,I SHOULDN'T BE ARRESTED FOR SOMEONE ELSE LIE!!!! #yougottolaughatthebullshit."


Emanuel has been released and is busy promoting his girlfriend Dutchess' new shop, Pretty-N-Ink, which is set to open Nov. 15 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
