Nicki Minaj Splits With Longtime Boyfriend, Safaree Samuels
After fourteen years (that’s longer than all three of Kim Kardashian‘s marriages combined), Nicki Minaj has pulled the plug on her relationship with Sarafee Samuels. Reportedly, Sarafee’s thirst for fame and jealousy of the “Anaconda” rapper’s success is what pushed her over the edge. According to TMZ:
“We’re told Nicki and Safaree had an arrangement — she’s the breadwinner and he’s the backup singer/hype man/personal assistant. But we’re told Safaree was getting sick of being in the background and had become increasingly hostile … an emotion she reciprocated.
We hear the final straw was when Safaree didn’t show up recently to one of Nicki’s shows, leaving her scrambling for a hype man. She confronted him and he went crazy.”
Judging by recent pictures, Sarafee has already covered up some of his tattoos that were dedicated to the raunchy hip-hop diva.
I’m not exactly sure what Sarafee does besides working for Nicki or how he plans on becoming a star, but I won’t hold my breath waiting for him to achieve whatever fame he’s hoping to gain. At the end of the day, he knew what he was signing up for as Nicki’s star began to rise and his remained stagnant…there’s no point in turning it into a big issue now. If I was him, I would just continue to enjoy the perks of being Nicki Minaj’s significant other.
