Safaree is now on the record stating that Nicki Minaj was physically abusive over the course of their relationship.
After hitting the Breakfast Club with a more or less flaccid demeanour, Safaree Samuels saved the best soundbites for DJ Envy's personal podcast. On “The Casey Crew” show, DJ Envy opened up the discussion by making reference to the toxic nature of Safaree's relationship with Nicki Minaj, by referring to him in the third person while in his presence.
“I don’t wanna say you were battered but you were an abused boyfriend,"
Envy continued as though he knew something we didn't.
"Sometimes Safaree couldn’t leave the crib."
Safaree didn't exactly refute those claims, stopping short of giving a nuanced explanation of their dysfunctional relationship. His retort:
“Nah, Nah that’s true but it’s because she was sheltered, she’s in her cocoon and I’m there with her. I didn’t really have a life outside of that. I was really comfortable but then the fights and stuff it was getting too crazy. I was like, you know what? I don’t wanna go to jail, I don’t wanna go to the hospital.”
Safaree admitted that their dynamic was toxic of the point of reaching physical aggression, where he claims Nicki was the one to initiate contact.
“I walked away, I’m not a confrontational person and I don’t like to argue. We’re not gonna be doing this all day every day, I’m not gonna have hands put on me and the verbal—it takes a while to get over that,” he said.
These accusations are definitely not going to pass by the wind Stay tuned for Nicki's response if and when it comes.
