Nicki Minaj‘s ex-boo Safaree Samuels is reportedly lawyered up to file a lawsuit against her over money she still owes him from three of her hit singles.
Although it’s been a year since their break up, the ‘Young Money’ rapstress ex- fiance says she didn’t pay him for his services on some of her biggest singles, including “Only” featuring Chris Brown, Drake and Lil Wayne, “Flawless (Remix)” featuring Beyonce, along with “Feeling Myself” with Bey.
An insider claims Samuels showed a judge a massive assortment of evidence (including videos) that proved he was involved in the production of Nicki’s music.
Safaree also claims Nicki, 32, acknowledged his contribution by giving him executive producer credits on her first 2 albums.
Apparently, Safaree, who is also Nicki’s former Hype Man, is still feeling bitter since splitting from the pop princess and will do anything to hurt her, a close friend had said in the past.
Over the years, Nicki and Samuels have been photographed wearing matching wedding bands and on March 7, (2014), she even took to IG to announce their 10 year anniversary.
The next day, the former couple jetted to Cabo, Mexico for what is believed to be a “romantic getaway” with friends. In VH1’s the Fabulous Life: Nicki Minaj, Samuels was referred to as her boyfriend throughout the episode, but the relationship came to an end later that year following cheating rumors.
In December (2014), Nicki and Safaree was engaged in a back-and-fourth argument on Twitter, where [Nicki] claimed that he was blackmailing her despite her loyalty and love for him. Safaree then tweeted she had no respect for him and is looking for pity.
Back in January of this year, Safaree finally opened up about his breakup with Nicki, claiming “[he] was the one who walked away from the 12 year relationship.”
“I just got to the point where the respect wasn’t there. Everyone around her works for her, you know? So it got the point where it was like, I’m your man. I’m who you go to sleep with every night. I’m who you wake up with every morning. And it got to the point where I was being treated like an employee, instead of like her man.”
Nicki have since found love in Philly rapper Meek Mill, while Safaree is said to be dating model Candice Brook.
