Nicki Minaj is currently being charged with allegations of physical assault by former boyfriend of 12 years, Safaree Samuels.
The former couple who called it quits in 2014 duke it out on Twitter, where Safaree recalled the “toxic” relationship and accused Nicki of “cutting” him which led to him almost dying. “I had to lie and tell them I was trying to kill myself so they wouldn’t take you to jail.”
Remember the night you cut me and i almost died the police and ambulance had to take me out the crib on a stretcher and I had to lie and tell them I was trying to kill myself so they wouldn’t take you to jail. When things like that start happening more Than once it’s time to dip.
Nicki clapped back, saying her ex stole her credit card, which Safaree quickly denied.
U stole my card & told me you thought it was an account with “free money” that I didn’t know about. On God. God will strike you down & more for lying. Ha! Stop saying u packed & left ! On Jesus u came to my house CRYING BEGGING to go w|me to Europe to the EMA’s. I said NO DUMMY
Towards the end it got toxic and I just packed up and left. I did things for spite and so did you. I don’t wish you bad and I don’t want us back together just like I’m sure you don’t. I don’t need you you don’t need me but we will always be linked in the public no matter what.
A 2014 song by Nicki Minaj entitled “Bed of Lies” seems to have alluded to this in its lyrics: “I could tell you lying, get the f*ck out, don’t yell at me/I ain’t mean to cut you, I ain’t wanna catch a felony,” although her ex wasn’t mentioned in the song.
Nicki was also previously sued by Safaree in 2016 for physical and emotional abuse, which was eventually dropped due to “change of heart.” There were also accounts of the two having public arguments in the past over rumors that Safaree ghostwrote some of Nicki’s songs.
