Ever since Nicki Minaj stepped on the scene and became the current queen of Hip Hop, Safaree Samuels has been by her side as her hype man and rumored boyfriend. They were never caught having any romantic moments, but he was always with her, and the two wore matching rings that were spotted on a recent trip to Cabo. But after he was spotted shirtless with the two tattoos he has on his chest for her covered up, the rumors started swirling that the couple went their separate ways. And the fact that we haven’t seen the two together in a while (they did go to the VMAs together in August) says a lot as well.
According to a source close to the former couple who spoke to TMZ, they did break up recently, and it was allegedly because he was no longer being supportive of her success, and wanted some success for himself.
The two were reportedly together for 14 years, but when he started getting sick and tired of being sick of tired of being in the background, he became hostile in their relationship, and she wasn’t having it. The source says that when Samuels didn’t show up for a recent performance, they got into a major argument and ended up falling out.
If you actually go to Samuels’ Instagram page, he’s been promoting his own music, his clothing line, his own ventures and often talks about his contributions to her success. So I can imagine that he was feeling like he wanted his own space and time to shine. Good luck with that…
Hopefully these two will be able to link back up soon, because 14 years is a long time to throw away.
