“I’m Looking For A Wife”: LHHH‘s Safaree Samuels Plans To Abstain From Sex Until Marriage
Love & Hip Hop Hollywood star Safaree Samuels has been very open about his desire to settle down and start a family, both on the reality show and on social media. Well, over the weekend, it appears he decided that the best way to make his dreams of happily ever after come true is by abstaining from sex until he ties the knot.
He took to Twitter over the weekend to let everyone know that he is very serious about finding his soulmate, so serious that as of now, he isn’t going to have sex in order to meet the right woman.
If you’re wondering how that can be possible given his involvement in the entertainment industry and it’s many temptations, Safaree said that since he spends the majority of his time alone, it won’t be a problem for him to go without.
Apparently, this recent epiphany came as a result of his 37th birthday (it fell on Independence Day). As he gets closer to 40, he’s realized that he doesn’t want to grow old alone and without a family of his own, so it’s time to take certain serious steps. Given the love he regularly receives from the ladies, the response to his choice to abstain from sex was mostly met with praise.
Samuels is known in the industry for his long-time relationship with Nicki Minaj, which ended a few years ago. And while some fans continue to joke that they should reunite, he said shortly after their split in 2015 that her fame helped to tank what they had.
“It just got to a point where the respect was gone,” he said on The Breakfast Club. “Everyone around her works for her. It got to the point where it was like, I’m your man, I’m the one you go to sleep with every night. I’m who you wake up with every morning. It got to the point where I was being treated like an employee instead of her man.”
The couple, who had been together for more than a decade, split in 2014. And while he’s dated different women here and there since then, the search for a Mrs. continues.
