Nicki Minaj excoriated her ex-boyfriend Safaree Samuels last night (without directly naming him) in a series of tweets, suggesting that he sued her this week. “Tweeted on the 5th that the 6th was my baby’s bday,” she wrote. “Celebrated on the 6th for his bday (publicly). Served w/a lawsuit on the 9th.”
“Two years later this poor excuse of a man is suing me & claiming to have been physically & emotionally abused,” she continued. “He’s so miserable… You can’t even celebrate your happiness anymore w/o being victimized. Miserable ppl refuse to move on w/their lives.” According to Minaj, she has asked Samuels several times to stop contacting her, and current beau Meek Mill later seconded the request.
In addition, she suggests that while she was still with Samuels, she “caught him stealing money and never prosecuted him.” But since he sued her, the gloves are off: “Now I’m DOING IT,” she declared. “ENOUGH!!!!... Imagine how it feels to have someone who gained so much off of your name refuse to let go & let u be happy. I could never sue a person who gave me all they had to give.”
