The 2015 BET Awards are tonight (June 28) as stars from Hip Hop and R&B will be making appearances, putting on performances and receiving hardware for their past year of work.

The red carpet is almost as noteworthy and reportedly Nicki Minaj’s ex boyfriend Safaree Samuels will not be making an appearance at it. According to the rapper’s Twitter, his publicist was informed that he was banned from the pre-show event.

“So Bet told my publicist im “Banned” from Bet Red carpet, hmmm wonder why.. dnt recall a situation occuring with them but hey #itiswhatitis,” he relayed via the social media site Saturday night (June 27). He also added: “Tell em b*tches blow me lance stephenson … and to outsiders dont say anything about me quoting that… i wrote it!! have a goodday!”

It’s unclear whether Safaree was even going to show up for the red carpet or even attend the awards ceremony. The 2015 BET Awards are slated to begin at 8 pm EST with performances scheduled to take place at the STAPLES Center, Club Nokia and the Nokia Theater.
