Nicki Minaj is single and ready to mingle, or so some rumors are claiming. TMZ reports that Queens, NY rapper Nicki Minaj has dumped her boyfriend of more than a decade, hype-man, and personal assistant Safaree Samuels claiming that he “jealous of her success.”
For those that did not know, Nicki’s boo Safaree was there with her before her career took off, and was always her right hand man. Safaree agreed to be her hype-man, personal assistant, and whatever else she required when she signed to Young Money/ Cash Money Records. When Nicki’s career skyrocketed, Safaree apparently couldn’t handle being on the back burner while Nicki made all the money.
TMZ cameras caught Samuels out & about but WITHOUT his two almost infamous Nicki Minaj tattoos he had on his arm & chest. Those tattoos appeared to have been covered up which leaves all to suspect the couple have broken up.
Sources close to Nicki are claiming that the “Anaconda” rapper broke it off after 14 years together because he became ridiculously jealous of her success and vied after what she had for himself. (Although Safaree was Nicki’s hype-man, he was also an aspiring rapper.) When the arrangement between the two of Nicki being the breadwinner and Safaree being the lackey, Safaree grew increasingly hostile towards her — an emotion she reciprocated. The relationship became tumultuous.
More details are floating around, so we’ll keep you posted on this news.
