Bella from the reality TV show ‘Black Ink Crew: Chicago’ broke her silence and spoke out following castmate Elijah, aka Fly Tatted’s passing. It was revealed that he passed away on Instagram from castmates Ryan Henry and Charmaine Bey earlier this week, as they shared heartfelt messages announcing his departure. While the reason for his death is being investigated, Bella has been accused of allegedly shooting Fly. Tuesday, she shared a message on her Instagram.
Last night, she went on Instagram live, and emotionally spoke out about the alleged details surrounding his death and denied all allegations that she was involved. Bella said,” I don’t even care what yall are saying about me. I don’t even care that ya’ll are calling me these names and a murderer. All I care about is his family. Yall don’t get it. That man didn’t mean to do it.” She asked everyone to leave Fly alone because they didn’t see what happened leading up to his death. She continued saying on the live,” Yall wasn’t there when I was there. I was supposed to meet up with his daddy. I told the police what happened. He wasn’t trying to commit suicide. It just happened. He was fighting demons.”
It appears that the two may have been dating. When the news first broke about Fly’s passing, Ryan and others believed it was due to suicide. Later Ryan shared a message on his Instagram stating otherwise. He wrote, “Due to earlier misinformation yesterday. Family and friends confirm that Elijah “Fly Tatted’s” death has been ruled a homicide, not a suicide. Prayers to his family.”
Currently, there is no clear answer to the cause of Fly Tatted’s death, but we will keep you updated as more information becomes available. Let’s continue to keep his family and friends in our prayers.
