Nicki Minaj Blames Breakup On Her Work Ethic
For a while, Nicki Minaj and her longtime boyfriend Safaree “S.B.” Samuels had done a pretty decent job of keeping the details of their breakup under wraps. But the floodgates were opened once Nicki began to speak directly about their split, at one point, even breaking down about it. Since then, the former couple exchanged heated words on Twitter for the entire world to see. Even then, we still really didn’t know what caused the two to decide to part ways. However, as Nicki continues her press tour to promote her newly released album, The Pinkprint, we’re able to learn more about what contributed to the couple’s demise.
In a recent interview, the Queens rapper confessed that her work ethic played a pivotal role in the breaking down of her 12-year relationship with Samuels.
“I lost a big part of my life, and one of the reasons was because I was a workaholic, Nicki told journalist Elliot Wilson during his interview series CRWN at Le Poisson Rouge. “I couldn’t focus on anyone else. Maybe they needed more attention, and I take care of my whole family.
So if I’m gonna choose between working my a– off and giving you, one human being, all of my attention? You might get forgotten sometimes. Not because I don’t love you, but because I got the weight of the f - - king world on my shoulders.”’
Going forward, the rapper-turned-actress says that she desires a partner who will appreciate the effort that she puts into her work.
“I want someone to appreciate how hard I work.”
It’s not 100% clear what other factors led to the pair calling it quits; however, as previously reported; Samuels has credited Nicki’s lack of respect for him.
