Relationship with Nicki Minaj


Safaree and Nicki Minaj are rumored to be dating. He is always by her side and they have some intimate pictures together. In December 2011, they were rumored to be engaged because they both had the rings of engagement on their fingers. Nicki Minaj has always said that she didn't have a intimate relationship with Safaree, but that he was more of a brother to her. On July 6, a fan asked her if she has a boyfriend. She replied "No I don't. Now sit".[4]

Over the years, Nicki & SB have been caught with matching wedding bands. On March 7, 2014, Nicki took to IG that she was celebrating her 10 year anniversary, but didn't say with who. The next day her and SB went down to Cabo, Mexico for what is believed to be a "romantic getaway". In VH1's the Fabulous Life: Nicki Minaj, SB was referred to as her boyfriend throughout the episode. On the pink print album, the whole movie is based upon their relationship.

Rumors about fight

On mid-2011, Minaj told authorities she was “struck” in the lower lip by a man during a heated argument at a swanky Dallas, TX hotel. Minaj was hanging out at the pool at the fancy Palomar Hotel when she got into a very intense verbal spat with an unidentified man she was staying with. Nicki told a hotel employee to call police while the man went to their hotel room. Nicki followed soon after. When cops and paramedics arrived, Nicki told authorities their poolside fight continued inside of their room and the man hit her in her lower lip. The man had already left the scene when cops arrived but Nicki insisted she did not want to press charges. Nicki also claimed she was not in a relationship with the alleged attacker. An incident report was taken but no charges will be filed per Nicki’s request.[5]

The reports and blogs suggest that she was attacked poolside at a Dallas Hotel by Safaree. Both Nicki Minaj and SB took to their twitter pages to shut down rumors that an incident had even took place.[6]

Twitter beef with Cher

In late November 2011, Safaree got into a Twitter beef with Cher. The beef started when one of Cher's fans tweeted her saying that Nicki dissed her on "Did It On'em". In the song, Nicki said,"If you could turn back time, Cher. You use to be here. Now you're gone, Nair.". Cher replied back to her fan saying, "I've seen lots of people come and go! No biggie!"[7]

Although Nicki Minaj did not reply to the comment, Safaree did by saying it was a "rap metaphor" and that she should "listen to the words [of "Did It On'em"] before saying dumb". Though Cher admitted she was wrong, SB didn't let her go and continued dissing her.[7]


In early 2014, Minaj released her first single from The Pinkprint titled "Pills N Potions". The song was rumoured to be about boyfriend Safaree Samuels. Later that year, she released her fourth single "Bed of Lies", which was also rumoured to be about Safaree.

In late October 2014, TMZ reported SB had covered his multiple tattoos of Minaj.

Safaree deactivated his twitter shortly after "Bed of Lies" came out, and later reactivated only to confirm his relationship of twelve years had ended. He later tweeted that he and his partner had moved apart, but they would remain friends. In the same tweet Safaree said, "I know the person, you only know the personality.".

On December 20, 2014, Nicki and Safaree had a back-and-fourth argument on Twitter. Nicki claimed that he was blackmailing her despite her loyalty and love to him for many years. Safaree tweeted that didn't know what she was talking about, she had no respect for him, and is looking for pity.[8] Two days later he stated in an interview that he will always support Nicki because he can't forget her after 12 years.[9]

In January 2015, Safaree talked about his breakup with Nicki in an interview. He said that he was the one who walked away from the relationship. "I just got to the point where the respect wasn't there. Everyone around her works for her, you know? So it got the point where it was like, I'm your man. I'm who you go to sleep with every night. I'm who you wake up with every morning. And it got to the point where I was being treated like an employee, instead of like her man."[10]
