Safaree Samuels has finally revealed why he broke it off with Nicki Minaj and it’s shocking! As you may know already, the two dated for no less than 12 years before they split in 2014 for unknown reasons.
Last month, the man said that he was the one to ‘walk away’ from the relationship.
While on Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, the rapper revealed that he was the one to ‘pack up and leave,’ but was not the reason everything ended.
Now, however, Safaree is finally explaining what exactly happened between him and Nicki.
He stopped by The Casey Crew podcast, which is hosted by DJ Envy and wife Gia and that is when he told his shocking truth.
The rapper explained that the beginning of the end was when Nicki Minaj’s career started to take off properly.
‘I ended up being trained to be that kind of person. Like, in the beginning, it’s like alright, ‘Lil Wayne wanna holla at you? Imma shut my mouth and let’s see where is gonna go. I cannot give you what he can give you, so I’m gon’ support.’ I was just doing it for so long it was programmed in my head,’ Safaree explained.
As he went on to claim that in time things got worse, his close pal and host of the show DJ Envy backed him up by saying: ‘I do not wanna say you were battered, but you were an abused boyfriend. Sometimes Safaree could not leave the crib…because he was sheltered.’
‘Nah, Nah that is true, but it is because she was sheltered, she is in her cocoon, and I am there with her. I did not really have a life outside of that. I was comfortable, but then the fights and stuff it was getting too crazy. I was like, you know what? I do not wanna go to jail, I do not wanna go to the hospital,’ he added.
When things got way too much, ‘I walked away, I am not a confrontational person, and I do not like to argue. We are not gonna be doing this all day every day, I am not gonna have hands put on me and the verbal — it takes a while to get over that.’
Physical and emotional violence were also involved, and as a result, the toxic relationship really ruined his self-confidence.
‘It took me a while to have my confidence that is why I was going to the gym so hard… It took me a good 4 and a half years to be like, ‘Okay, now I am me, and I am walking in my own,’’ he admitted.
