During a recent interview on The Casey Crew podcast Safaree Samuels said his ex-girlfriend Nicki Minaj was both physically and verbally abusive towards him during their relationship.
“What made you never leave? I don’t wanna say you were battered but you were an abused boyfriend…sometimes Safaree couldn’t leave the crib. I swear on everything!” said DJ Envy.
“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,” replied Safaree.
“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. It took me a while to have my confidence that’s why I was going to the gym so hard. It took me a good 4 and 1/2 years to be like, “Okay, now I’m me and I’m walking in my own,” the rapper went on to say.
Nicki Minaj recently came out to accuse Safaree of leaking his own nudes to the public for attention — it’s not clear if what he is saying is true or just payback.
