Nicki Minaj’s recent breakup with her boyfriend of 12 years, Safaree Samuels, is causing him to have suicidal thoughts, according to a report posted by TMZ today (December 19).
“He’s become a shut-in, spends days and nights smoking weed, and has talked openly about suicide,” TMZ reports. “Safaree is telling friends he won’t get in touch with Nicki because she’s now hooked up with Meek Mill. He says it’s torture for him, because he believes Meek Mill destroyed his relationship with Nicki over false claims he cheated.”
Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill collaborated on the track “Big Daddy,” on MInaj’s The Pinkprint. Minaj has denied the rumors that she is currently dating Meek Mill, while speaking to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” on Tuesday (December 16).
“Let me clear this up: I am single,” Minaj said in the interview. “People are just assuming these things and I don’t know why. This is my friend. I’m just hanging out. We don’t look at each other like that at all.”
Nicki Minaj also spoke with Power 105.1 personality Angie Martinez about her recent breakup with Samuels in an interview posted Wednesday (December 17).
“This is somebody I grew up with,” Minaj says. “Like, I don’t even know how I’m going to function without that person in my life. I never lived my life as a famous person without him. I don’t think people realize it’s not just a breakup, that was a humongous part of my life.”
Safaree “Scaff Breezy” Samuels posted a positive message on his Twitter this morning.
“im Goooooood..” he tweets from @SCAFFBEEZY.
Nicki MInaj’s The Pinkprint album was released Monday (December 15) featuring singles “Anaconda,” “Pills and Potions,” and “Only.” The album received a four X review from HipHopDX.
“Drake confesses his love for ‘thick’ women, and Meek Mill practically rips his heart out of his chest and shows it off to the world on ‘Buy A Heart,’” the review says. “The thing is, the wildly expansive Nicki Minaj has grown taut here, and careful. On The Pinkprint she weaves bars in with pop sensibilities fluttering around her. It creates a totality of sound that, frankly, was missing on her previous efforts.”
