Safaree just can't get over that girl after three years
It’s been three whole years since Nicki Minaj gave Safaree Samuels his walking papers. She’s even had a long-term boyfriend come and go since Safaree was in the picture, but that guy just won’t let her go without a crazy fight. He’s tried suing her, dissing her, and talking about her to no avail; she just won’t give him the time of day. This tweet may cause her to raise her eyebrows though.
Safaree and Nicki
It’s believed that Nicki and Safaree were good friends who dated off and on for over a decade. They were coming up in The Hoodstars together, then Nicki took a chance on a solo career in 2010, taking Safaree as her hype man.
Things ended between them in 2014, but it looks like Safaree didn’t take it well at all. He’s been taking shots at Nicki for years and feuding with her boyfriends and ex-boyfriends.
Dating on the DL
Safaree really went cray when Nicki took up a relationship with Meek Mills in 2015. They showed off their love in a way that she never did with Safaree, saying she had to appear single for the sake of her career. She once said, “When I came in the business, you couldn’t tell people you were in a relationship, because record company and management said that doesn’t make you appealing to men. So don’t tell people you’re in a relationship.
“So after you do that for ten years it becomes something you feel like you have to do. It’s difficult to break out of that box. So I just vowed to myself, ‘Look, I’m about to put out a new album, I don’t care anymore.’ It just so happens I’m in a new relationship but I was planning on doing that before I was with Meek, because now it’s to the point where it’s different.”
In addition to all the shots he threw at Nicki musically, Safaree has sued Nicki for royalties of her songs. She also got served papers to appear in court in 2016 to discuss the alleged physical abuse that she doled out to him.
Maybe Safaree’s constant harassment was just too much for Nicki and Meek’s relationship because they called it quits in early 2017. Meek said in an interview in July 2017, “I always wanted Nicki my whole life… I bagged that. Of course breaking up with anybody you love is a loss, period.”
