We told you the other day that it was once again being speculated that Nicki Minaj and her on and off boo Safaree Samuels are on the outs, and the fact that he covered up one his Nicki tattoos is fueling the speculation even more.

Interestingly enough, TMZ is claiming that sources from Nicki’s camp tell them that she is moving on because she feels SB is jealous of her career.

The site reports:

Sources connected with the former couple tell TMZ … Nicki cut the relationship off — after 14 years — because he became uncontrollably jealous of her success … success he wanted for himself.

We’re told Nicki and Safaree had an arrangement — she’s the breadwinner and he’s the backup singer/hype man/personal assistant. But we’re told Safaree was getting sick of being in the background and had become increasingly hostile … an emotion she reciprocated.

We hear the final straw was when Safaree didn’t show up recently to one of Nicki’s shows, leaving her scrambling for a hype man. She confronted him and he went crazy.



  1. I always thought it had to be hard for them to be together when she’s so successful and he’s not. That’s hard for some men to handle.

    1. Well he needs to get his ego and check. Nicki is living her dream and he’s enjoying the lifestyle too. I don’t see why he’s mad.

  2. They have such a dysfunctional relationship. It really should have ended after he hit her in the face with a suitcase.

  3. I think she needs to move on. She will always be more successful than him and if that bothers him, this won’t ever work. She’d be better off dating someone who has a career and their own success. I get that he was around when she was trying to get on but that doesn’t mean they have to be together.

  4. Like Phaedra, she’s wasting too much time on a man who isn’t even on her level. She will regret it one day like Phaedra does now.

  5. They have always been very on and off. I wouldn’t be surprised if they got back together again. Nicki is very loyal sometimes to a fault.

  6. When you have a man who has your back for 14 yrs before you were famous. Its gonna be really hard to replace him. Especially in the business she’s in.they should work it trust him for 14 yrs. That’s dog years in hollywood. Lots of people. are going to hang around now are you going to-do know who to trust?

    1. But if that man is resentful of her success, whether he had her back all those years or not, if he hasn’t seen his career take off, or enjoyed the same success she has, it still won’t work. That kind of animosity creates a very toxic environment.

  7. if he was smart he would use Nicki’s connections to do some background work like producing and writing music for other artists. He’d make good money and it would take a lot of stress out of their relationship.

  8. They’ll get back together like always but I can’t see Nicki dating someone in the industry. She’s too private for that.

  9. This relationship was doomed from the beginning with that arrangement. Majority of men won’t play that position for too long or anybody for that matter will resent the other person. With that said they will probably continue on with this dysfunctional relationship.

  10. How many times do they have to break up before they understand they just don’t work? Yes, he’s loyal and all that but it’s just not working. They have been on and off for years. They should be tired of it by now.

  11. Like someone already mentioned, I knew they weren’t good for each other when the whole suitcase thing happened. Sometimes we force things to work because we feel like we owe someone for being there for us, but that’s the wrong mentality to have.

    1. Feel u. I have that type of relationship. Which I am trying to get out of and being that my man feels like he done so much for me (which he has) I need to just stick it out wit him cause according to him I won’t find another man like him…but our issues gotten to a point where I’m literally stressed and depressed. It’s not a good situation to be in.

  12. They are cut from the same tree just different branches….how many damn times this has happened? Same sh*t different day…they’ll be right back together. There’s no one out there who will put up with their childish sh*t, they belong together.
