WATCH: Donna of Black Ink Crew and her boyfriend gets exposed on the New York news by her roommate (full)

Taylor Pickney aka Donna Lombardi, and her boyfriend Mohamed found themselves getting blasted on the ‘Help Me Howard’ segment of the NY news not too long ago for not paying rent in over a year to a woman who only intended for them to stay in her apartment for 3 weeks while they were homeless.

Watch as she details how the couple have ripped her off, all while busting out windows and breaking doors during their unwanted stay.

  • Shamara Lamb

    😂😂😂sad to say..that sounds about right

  • Shamara Lamb

    but isn’t not paying rent just cause..?

  • Shamara Lamb

    she should have her own…she stay with a new wig..wheres her show check?

  • TSSanchez

  • Kymberly M. Chandler-Silver

    🤣🤣🤣couch surfing😩

  • Kymberly M. Chandler-Silver

    Ok but Donna Honey,the new apartment is not even yours. You renting a room in jadas apt.🤷🏽‍♀️Keep it real you just didn’t want Help Me Howard to get you on film so u didn’t come to the door probably climbed out the window. Why lie about her name kuz she shady and was plotting shady shit. Donna has yet to come with receipts of these papers she has “supposedly” and now she think she gon fuck Jada in exchange for free rent. Let’s watch🤣

  • Pebbles

    Ceasar came back and said the money was never stolen .. kit miscalculated

  • Pebbles

    Welcome!

  • Pebbles

    Same in Philly .. which is why my old landlord had it written in the lease that guest can only stay for three days..

    Yup! everything you wrote

  • Pebbles

    Your version is believable.

    Just like teddy said Donna probably was messing around with that old Lady. ( hey! Hoes recognize one another) so the crew like nahhhh!

    Enters Donna she says yeah! I mess with older women .. Teddy drops 🎤

    I believe Teddy too…

  • jazz0324

    I made this profile just to like ya comment lmaoooo, so on point

  • Makiah Shuler

    DONNA IS A BUM!!!!!

  • Kamo Brinson

    And don’t look like it’s gonna get any better…
    KarMA didn’t waste no time coming back at her for what she said and did to Mel..smh

  • Anevay

    You said Donna’s name wasn’t on the paper and asked “who is Taylor Pinckney….”- that’s all I’m addressing.

  • Ineedtoknow555

    Did Donna say she was lucky she didnt push the little bitch (the 2 yr old) down the stairs? Wow Donna is next level fucked up and she looks like her pussy stink

  • Star Solomon

    It doesn’t matter old girl story still don’t add up. And again housing court would have made Donna leave due to non payment.

  • Anevay

    Not sure about the newer cast members but everyone who been on the show for a while use a different name except Walt.

  • Anevay

    Donna’s real name is a Taylor Pinckney. The cast all revealed their real names on vh1 website sometime back…..btw the only one who used his real name on the show was Walt.

  • Excepcion

    So maybe thats the issue – these people are using crisis services when they really need longterm support and possibly institutionalization..yes its sad to say that they are milking the system by not being motivated to participate ..but what you just said right there is that those people should actually be inpatient psychiatric residents not homeless. They are sick but not sick enough that they can take up a bed or room in a hospital.

  • Excepcion

    Someone said on another thread that this is more than likely possible due to rent controls – if youve been living in a building for a VERY long time (25 yrs or over?) its possible to be paying way below market rate. HOWEVER $2500 a whole year seems like an exaggeration ? *shrugs*..Im not from NYC but Ive heard this more than once.

  • Excepcion

    lol i know yall may not like the girl but Duchess said the same thing about how all of the shit fake. Yes she willingly participated in the lie but you know what they are all on they hussle..the way it looks to me is that Duchess played chess not checkers because she is the only one who left the franchise and has something to show for it..i was gonna say unless Donna is refusing section8 there is really no legitimate reason why she should be homeless while on tv..if she stays living within her means.

  • mena

    Hella fake. I would never ever give that show another view. The producers have taken over the show and the shop. It’s so scripted and FAKE. This show use to be authentic and real. It’s a mess now.

  • mena

    Donna is a whole mess and a cold head. That’s where her money goes. She’s always in drama and always taking Mess about someone but her life been in shambles for the past 3 seasons .

  • mena

    Then you’re a dumb asss becaus Donna has been known to lie like her and her lil buddy sky. Donna has been living with roommate to roommate . U gone believe her couch surfing Ass? Wow

  • Yerp!

    actors have stage names.

  • Bre

    Sad day in Harlem!! This lady is out for one moment of fame. Her story don’t add up. Anyone human being would not let another woman and her man lay up for a year. She used this as a come up scemed. I can just picture it, “ oh, Donna yea !! Sure you can come stay with me. Meanwhile telling her friends , “ im a set this bitch up!”

  • Star Solomon

    Look closer at the court papers, it doesn’t even say Donna name. Who is Taylor Pinckney, Angela Newman??…😂😂😂

  • Such A Baddie

    Right! That’s why I call lazy and cheap. Donna can go do events and walk through’s and make a couple bands for just on night at any random club…you show up, and mingle while getting paid to party. That’s why I say she is either not hustling or she just spends her coins on herself and whatever dude she’s wit at the moment.

  • Kia Smith

    Yessss u said it…. u should read my comment I posted…like we know ur not rich but damn bih u still out there homeless…i cant

  • Kia Smith

    Here’s what I think…. Donna needed a place to stay….why? I’m confused…uve been on this show for at least 3 seasons… how much are they paying u? She meets this lady wherever… hey if i can rent a room from u….ull b in a few scenes because I love here and they will pay u…lady down with it. She wan be all on tv n make some coins so….she game….. Donna moves in during off season…but telling the lady, as soon as the season hit…..we on…lady believes it……season starts… it’s been 4 months already…season starts…heres another 3 4 months still no money…whole while Donna says….just wait til we stop filming…i got u…dumb ass lady falls for it…time to cut the check….donna dips…dumb lady mad… Donna get own place….ur welcome😂😂😂😂😂😧

  • Kia Smith

    What man has his own but lays up with his woman in a messy home….this all too fishy

  • Kia Smith

    I mean Donna aint wanna pay for a room on that season she ate crusty lips out… sooooo whhhhy y’all think she telling the truth now….how tf u telling another woman to get her life when u 20some living pillar to post….better stop splurging on brazillian….on go sign up with mona Scott ass…cause vh1 got u looking bad

  • Such A Baddie

    Oh exactly. I mean lets look at the cast. Teddy, Walt, Sky, Donna (None of them Tattoo) OSh*t did, but he was too busy doing drugs, in jail or getting another chick pregnant to come actually tattoo. Dutchess and her crusty lips have moved on so… Now there is the newbies young bae, and melody and cease. That’s only three people to tattoo. The real black ink actually tattoos and we probably won’t see them, because they’re working.

  • Such A Baddie

    Exactly! When he got that seat, I was like lemme go ahead and put my Doctor application in and secure another bag right quick. Did I go to medical school, am I qualified…well no exactly BUT does it really matter? lol ehhhh

  • Meg Fleckney

    Ok but if her name is Taylor whateverthefuck, why does she have a whole other name for the show? Sketchy.

  • Shera Latoya

    6 seasonings and three were Lowry lmaoo

  • Luccicreno

    Its not easy as it sounds. I’m not sure of NYC housing laws but here in CA once you LET someone stay with you for 30 days they are officially a tenant and must be treated as such. Meaning you cannot just put them out on the street without just cause. All she has to do is come there 1 day out the month,if her belongings are there and she is not displaying a harm to others,broken any laws or actively made an effort to leave…you have to go through the courts to get her out. Now what her reasoning is for not doing that idk.

  • LifeIs2short

    Lol!!!!

  • LifeIs2short

    Lol!!

  • LifeIs2short

    Exactly!!! And she shouldn’t have had to ask… SMH!!! He seem hesitant when she asked if she could move in…til she reminded him of “That THING” he likes… OH Donna!

  • Cardio32

    I am, I have no experience but hey neither does 45.

  • Deano Fergi

    Yeah exzactly u are right and look how many times she has been fired but yet still some how mages toe comeback production obviously want her there as they want her to be on the show. Yeah someone has said it in a previous season comment that they went to the shop and saw other tatto artist who do not get showed on the show. That why I find it funny when people like ted I think 2 seasons ago said he head to hire melody as they had no tattoo artist, because I’m thinking you have other ones we just don’t see them

  • Grace Ibk Fashanu

    lmaooo,, I KNOW,, SHE might have stolenthe 10,000 dollars too.. and blamed the other lady.

  • Keyzee

    That was some bum bitch shit on both of their parts . I’m just sick of bitches displaying bad behavior then want to fight. Black Ink need to be ashamed of themselves if these ppl can’t afford housing. I wouldn’t put it pass Donna dump truck ass if she planned the whole thing. We all know people are obsessed with famous people. That lady probably let Donna move in thinking she was gone get paid and Donna took advantage of her fame and the situation. Donna was waiting for her to come to the shop. Well I hope Black Ink pay her court fees. You can’t fuck with alley cats they’re gutter.

  • Such A Baddie

    DO IT! lol

  • Cardio32

    I’m gonna run for President.

  • Cardio32

    Nah, his manager should get him a sponsor for Chap Stick.

  • Cardio32

    Word ??? 😲

  • Kamo Brinson

    So Donna just gone rock a new wig every episode and not pay rent tho🤔
    Then accept a puppy when she not even in her own layer/part of a house??she in a room
    Then have her dude there so much that he damaging this woman property??
    That sounds like he abusive to,
    And not a man to have his woman livin like that.
    That lady let Donna stay out the kindness of her heart prolly thinking Donna gonna pay up soon enough since she is on TV in all..praying for Donna ..it’s so many of us wish we could get a Platform like this.

  • Brown Suga

    You heard that too? I was like 2500 for a year?…….in NYC?……

  • Maybe he was over there so much it seemed like he moved in? Idk but I’d never been pay my rent in cash a no receipt.

  • 🤔Hmm#?

    I agree, it’s awfully sad and if I ever find that pic I will show you what I mean. Once a upon a time..you would see ppl up in age holding a sign …cupping for money. Now all these kids hanging out in union square, getting high. Then the bad thing..🔛 they come to the ER looking for admission into psych. B/c they know they’ll get three meals a day and a bed. Plus the doctor giving you medication.

  • Tasticks

    😵🤯🤬 See, that’s that bull! Folks would rather beg and live hand to mouth than go to work. I’m not funding drug habits and if I can’t claim you on my taxes, don’t expect a handout from me. Makes it harder for those who are really down and need assistance.

  • lmfkngoode

    This is messy. So on the episode Caesar told Howard “ I can give you the number of my brand ambassador kitty” but he truly told him “my executive producer” in this interview. The show got way too much going on.

  • 🤔Hmm#?

    check this out. If you have shopped in Union Square , NY…there is a park right across the street from Nordstrom rack. In that park..for some reason the young adults like Donna stay there gettin’ high and drunk 😵 all day and night. Young adults 20-27 yrs old with a dog 🐕 and backpack 🎒. Sign in hand 📝…looks like they’re not even from around here. Like from Tennessee or Missouri somewhere. Morning comes and they’re begging ppl for money 💴. Young kids on drugs bad. Mostly white.

  • Tasticks

    Exactly! How do you come from homelessness and abuse (technically she’s STILL homeless) and not have the motivation to get out there and better yourself?

  • 🤔Hmm#?

    I believed Sky Help Donna get her job [email protected] black ink. She moved her in her apartment and with all sincerity she was going to put Donna on some shi* where she can get paper. But look at Donna now

  • Tasticks

    Right. Donna crossed Sky one too many times. Remember she was hating when Ceaser asked Sky to manage the ATL shop. I think that’s what really ended their friendship.

  • Such A Baddie

    Yep. Crusty lips dutchess capitalized and gutter butt Sky even seems to have smartened up and is tryna secure some type of bag.

  • 🤔Hmm#?

    You know something ain’t right when Sky stop rocking with her.

  • Tasticks

    Find the lie. 👀🤣🤣💀💀

  • 🤔Hmm#?

    Yesss. This is what I am talking about,making moves and connections. That’s what Dutchess did. Cameo’s, cover of ink magazine. Even if I didn’t come from nothing,trust I will be out there hustling while the stove is hot. Even Sky woke up with her gutter aS$.

  • Yup!

  • Such A Baddie

    Omg! I’m sooo weak. Welp, since it’s 2018 I’ma go head and be a brand ambassador too. f*ck it lol you w/ me? Who’s gonna hire us? Lemme go hop on IG real quick….but if we gotta smash for the position like “kitty” ehhhh I’m not tryna go that route.

  • Such A Baddie

    RIGHT! People don’t even know how to come up or glow up these days. Seems Donna didn’t have sh*t and was given an opportunity to level up and she’s still a bum. She can’t tattoo (which doesn’t matter, because not everyone affiliated w/ black ink does tattoos anyway). Even if she made bare minimum each episode I would be branding tf outta myself. She can do interviews, walk through’s, appearances, guest host, get sponsors on ig for that flat tummy tea….try to get in commercials, other reality shows lol like come on. She’s not even properly utilizing the platform. Therefore I call lazy and dirty. She’s not waking up and hustling she’s partying and squatting places.

  • Karen Wright

    They aint Claiming her…. Smh

  • BellaBabi

    I swear I just died and came back LMAO!

  • BellaBabi

    Lmao!

  • 🤔Hmm#?

    She started from the bottom’ and still fuc$Ing there. Bish walking around ,like she dont straight give a fuc$

    Shi* is …smh🤦‍♂️

  • Gabby

    LMFAO!! Very well put!

  • Gabby

    That’s not her real name

  • DvlDoggBAM412

    Brand ambassador my eye! LMAO

  • DvlDoggBAM412

    Jacquees?! He is so handsome to me! Gorgeous complexion but my weakness is a man with a beautiful smile! His agent should get him a sponsor with colgate! Lmao

  • DvlDoggBAM412

    Lombardi?! Oh no! If that’s her real name and the area she’s from a well do to family.

  • AveryWest

    That’s very true. I haven’t seen Donna do anything outside of the show, not even one solo interview

  • Tasha

    I’m confused how are you going to have a tenant in your home for a year and a half and they’ve paid no rent …. Surely you’d kick them out by the second or third month and that’s me being nice !

  • Reina1718

    U rite

  • Miracle Saint James

    It makes no sense that Donna says that she moved from the slums of Cleveland Ohio to New York for a fresh start when apparently she just moved from the slums of one city to the slums of the next city just to chase fresh dick around a new town and engage in toxic relationships with abusive men who prey on dumb hoes like her http://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3cbde18a26ba1bfe5a8478003164b09f5a9cb45bd28ed187e4b330895f5ba0de.gif

  • Scarlette

    If Mohamed have had his own place for this entire time then I don’t understand why Donna didn’t just go live with him until she was able to afford to live on her own. This lady seems to be saying that the both of them have been living with her in a room in her apartment though so I’m confused 🤔

  • Such A Baddie

    Honestly, do you think he’d make any money off the cast of the show? Walt, Teddy, Donna, Sky? They don’t do sh*t. At least Melanie and Young Bae tattoo! Oh sh*t just had another baby with his wife. I bet if you go to either of his shops right now there is a full staff of people we’ve never seen working there. The people on the show are pretty much for entertainment purposes. as for Donna she’s clearly not on his payroll and he doesn’t look out for her like he does everyone else lol

  • Such A Baddie

    Yes, but still Donna just gives off bum vibes.

  • Tasticks

    Exactly. Someone said Donna needs to get some endorsement deals. WHO is going to buy anything she swears by? 🤔

  • Vette Mun

    2500 is a month rent for a one bedroom so you gotta think is the lady really telling the truth

  • Abstruce

    That’s what Ryan was talking about with Big Fish and the independent contractors. Why he couldn’t fire anyone.

  • Reina1718

    All renting air bnb

  • Reina1718

    Donna been real extra lately

  • Reina1718

    She looks like a squatter

  • Reina1718

    I think she was coming for the money… but u right she wanted 2 b seen

  • MChantye

    stinking filthy trash at that

  • Deano Fergi

    Yeah exzactly I was wondering why he said that. That was an interesting thing I spotted

  • Ayenda

    ouuuu thanks for the tea lmfao

  • Nevada Troxler

    she said VH1 they turned her down watch again

  • Star Solomon

    This is bull. If she went to court the Judge would have made her leave due to non payments period. She claim to never want any parts of the show but she came to the shop after Donna already left her house. Donna suppose to be in the back room but you still going thru high waters to reach out to everyone else for her to get the message 😒 She claims she only wanted her out the house and got her out but still going out her way to reach Donna. Old girl is messy and full of drama herself, which is why her and Donna became cool in the first place. Anyone that lives in Harlem or New York City knows that old girl story seem just as fishy.

    And no they don’t make much money in the beginning but this is season 3-4 so Donna has gotten a check already, several at that. The shop on 113 only opens when they’re filming. The people on reality shows live in the hood like regular people, I see them come out all the time. Shit Jacquees from Love & Hip Hop live in the same building as me but you seen him on TV kicking Sophia the body out his home, that wasn’t even his 😒 they got to fake it, until they make it. 😂😂😂

  • Verbal-Leigh

    Realised that from her fucking the shop

  • Verbal-Leigh

    People fail to realise that you don’t level up untill you start doing in-between filming jobs, that check thy get is a lump sum sometimes broken into 2.. you’re waiting for a next season while the shop stays closed most of the year.. she’s a squandered her money in-between seasons and can’t get ahead doing anything else not even tattooing … If she was smart shed be endorsing something by now.. even hair colour. She’s lost

  • Such A Baddie

    Exaxtly! I’m telling you people out here thinking these reality tv personalities are rich and that’s far from the truth. Many get paid a small amount. Even skynadmitted to her son in hat interview they weren’t really paying her anything when she first started on black ink. And she’s just now seeing money like that. The thing isn’t that’s why so many wanna turn up and get the most camera time to make more money. If you bring in ratings they pay you more money…eveyone makes different amounts. With all that being said, she’s getting compensated I’m sure and doesn’t tape episodes for free, so I honestly think Donna is just a lazy bum, who’s dirty and doesn’t wanna pay any rent.

  • Such A Baddie

    Lol @ Ceaser face. Him telling them to call the producers says it all. Donna is not an employee at black ink she’s just a cast member on a vh1 reality show.He doesn’t cut her any checks. lol

  • Such A Baddie

    Let this be an example that these reality show personalities are not allll getting paid a lot of money! They are far from rich. People think because they see them on tv that they’re making so much money from reality tv and they’re not! Plus I really think that Donna is just a lazy bum, who doesn’t want to pay rent or bills. Any money she gets she spends it on herself as in drugs, wigs, liquor. 💁🏽

  • TaRon T. Dot Thomas

    girl. you gotta damn point. this show is straight up make believe. matter of fact. imma start calling this shit Ripley’s Believe It or Not lmao

  • R C

    What does she do with her money then? Who is she giving it too???

  • Rhea

    Don’t black ink cast members get paid a nice check ? Why would she struggling to pay rent? And if she was was didn’t black in productions help?

  • Tasticks

    😂😂😂 True and true. Donna looks like a walking ad for hepatitis C.

  • Tasticks

    She really is, and it pisses me off that she mocked Melody’s situation but she’s real life homeless out in these NYC streets. Did you catch when the person at the 125th shop told Howard that Donna wasn’t a Black Ink employee? 😂😭

  • AshBashLovingLife

    Bitch pay your rent or move tf out !!! I hate a using ass manipulative bitch or nigga.

  • ImSomebodyToo

    Lmao you are probably correct! haaa she is a scammer

  • ImSomebodyToo

    Donna is trash.

  • Bridgette Lee

    I been a bae fan seen her first episode and that’s why… Kicked that bytch all upside her head🤦.. And the receptionist was getting it in..

  • Lost Sheep

    Thts what I said, n Ms,. Karma, do u even have a home, or ever had one? We done saw damn near, everybody Fam, or home, or both! U talk big shit, tooth missin, do u even care about yourself? As ole girl said, you look nasty n unkept! U not liked, just STFU, n clean up, Miss untalented, dont make me bring Donnas Cupcake out!

  • Mizz-O

    Im confused…Donnas last name is Pickney but it says Pinckney on the “rental lease” can somebody explain please :/

  • Tasticks

    So, if Donna and her boyfriend are both homeless according to the roommate, where did Donna bring her bags to in the last episode? 🤔 A lot of these reality TV stars rent Air BnB places but clearly brother man has somewhere for the two of them to stay now.

  • Reina1718

    Donna nvr had her own place & looks dusty & dirty

  • Bodhi

    Karma is a stone cold foxxy B****. Donna sat there and humiliated Mel by calling her a thief when her and her child stays in a trailer. Mean while,you on tv being exposed as a squatter.HAHAHAHAHA.
    SIDENOTE: Lets not forget Donna real name is Taylor Pickney. LMAO

  • Annie

    I said the same thing because how you gonna tell Help me Howard that you turned VH1 down and all you wanted was your house back, but turn around and do a pop up appearance on the show to fight Donna over rent. Girl bye

  • none yubiz

    I’m from NJ and love me some Help Me Howard…he gets to the bottom of sh*+ ASAP but damn a whole year of not paying rent…how tf Donna pull that shit off?

  • 🤔Hmm#?

    Everybody knows PIX11 Help me Howard is on point.
    Its embarrassing to have all your business in the street.
    VH1 is using Donna, with there thirsty ass. For a Scene.
    least should be able to get a studio.
    Cesar it makes you look bad b/c this girl is your cast mate for how many seasons?
    Asking her roommate to get a check for an ass kicking. Her and her child. Who is Mohamed to you? Clearly not a man.

  • Zarah

    The woman looked like she wanted her 5 min fame moment but it also sounds exactly like Donna’s repeated trifling behavior.

  • Andrea Williams

    1 thing about vh1 they will hold your check and trt not to pay you…

  • Zarah

    He wanted to expose her so she will be too embarrassed to continue staying there…people like Donna don’t have boundaries.

  • Lost Sheep

    I believe this, because Donna lived like a nasty savage when she lived with Sky! Donna dont want to pay rent, the others dont live like tht, I can stand Donnas usin ass, ever since tht bitch put tht fake 10,000 on Mel, n how she did it, talking about WE think u took it, no hoe, U think tht!

  • Antoinette Randolph

    that bitch just wanna be on tv.

  • April_Moon

    So what exactly was Howard planning to do to her if he found her? Beat her up and make her pay the woman? And why is Donna fighting that older lady like that? I have so many questions

  • MelaninGoddess

    They must be paying Donna in breadcrumbs and peanuts to be on the show if she’s living that damn savage. That place looked like a trap house

  • Cheron Mickie

    I don’t know if I believe this story.
