Nicki Minaj Blasts Ex Safaree Samuels as 'Poor Excuse of a Man' After He Serves Her With Lawsuit
By John Boone
Nicki Minaj blasted her ex as a "poor excuse of a man" and claimed he is trying to "extort" her.
The "Anaconda" rapper went on a lengthy Twitter rant on Tuesday night after she says she was served with a lawsuit by Safaree Samuels, the aspiring rapper and hype man she dated for a decade. Samuels wants a cut of the profits from Minaj's first three albums and allegedly has "a boatload of proof" that he was "super involved" in her process, according to TMZ.
Meanwhile, Minaj implied that the lawsuit is simply pettiness after she publicly celebrated new boyfriend Meek Mill's birthday earlier in the week. "Two years later this poor excuse of a man is suing me & claiming to have been physically & emotionally abused. Lol. He's so miserable," she wrote.
Tweeted on the 5th that the 6th was my baby's bday. Celebrated on the 6th for his bday (publicly). Served w/a lawsuit on the 9th. lol
The BET Awards winner claimed Samuels has been "calling [her] mother crying" and is just trying to generate drama for the VH1 reality show, Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood. "LEAVE US ALONE!!!!!! PLEASE!!!" Minaj tweeted.
My man asked him to stop emailing me. I also asked him several times. This man can't move on. It's really sad. I have the emails to prove it
"Caught him stealing money and never prosecuted him!!!! Now I'm DOING IT. ENOUGH!!!!!!" she added. "U were abused my n***a? Look @ what you've become. Gods wrath is no joke. You will regret every lie u said about me."
Caught him stealing money and never prosecuted him!!!! Now I'm DOING IT. ENOUGH!!!!!!
This isn't the first time that Samuels has claimed credit for work on Minaj's albums, Pink Friday, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded and The Pink Print, previously saying he co-wrote her rhymes and saying she treated him like an "employee."
"Initially things were being handled privately behind the scenes, but it was taken to social media and unfortunately it's now being played out in the public eye which could easily be interpreted as a cry for attention," Samuels rep tells ET in a statement.
"Safaree will not continue in any more social media feuds and at this time we are unable to comment or provide any details pertaining to the current legal proceedings that are taking place with Safaree Samuels and Nicki Minaj," the statement continues. "We are confident that things will be both favorable and amicable for all parties."
Amicable might be a stretch at this point...
