Nicki Minaj’s split from on and off again boyfriend Safaree Samuels has been a nasty one, but in a new special for MTV she reveals she actually turned down his proposal for the sake of her music career.
On her song “All Things Go”, Minaj addresses having an abortion in high school with her then boyfriend Aaron at 15: “My child with Aaron would’ve have been 16 any minute.” According to Billboard, the rapper speaks on the loss of her unborn child in her upcoming documentary, saying, “We made a terrible mistake. We had to pay for it. I always felt like my destiny was to be accomplished in my career first, and then be a mother.” She also talks about being in a relationship for 11 years with (now ex-boyfriend) Safaree Samuels and how she turned down his proposal to devote her energy to the hip hop game.
The public is so used to seeing the fearless side of Minaj that viewers will be completely taken back by the secrets, people and events she has decided to reveal in My Time Again, which airs this Sunday, January 18th at 10pm/9C. Watch the riveting trailer below and tune in Sunday to get the full story on the greatest female rapper alive.

Well they didn’t need to get married anyway.
I like most of what Nicki has evolved in to (more natural and less animated), and I can even appreciate her transparency. I actually listen to her music now. But it’s really overwhelming to hear the same stuff every week for weeks at a time when you’re used to a person being more private. The stuff isn’t even interesting/entertaining/enlightening anymore….
I’m so tired of hearing about the relationship she wouldn’t even talk about a year ago.
She’s so transparent. She was private up until those album sales declined.
I think Niki had SB as a backup plan if the rap thing did not work out she would have a man to settle down with,but it seems as if as soon as she makes it she started to pushing aside little by little.
