Rumors are continuing to circulate regarding the status of Nicki Minaj and Safaree Samuels relationship. The couple of nearly 14 years apparently brokeup and we are now learning new details behind the split.
A source tells TMZ that Nicki actually brokeup with Safaree because of … surprise surprise … he was “uncontrollably jealous of her success.” (Something we see time and time again.) Per the insider, the duo had an agreement that Minaj would be the breadwinner while Safaree remained her hype man and personal assistant.
But according to the source, being in the “background” became too much for Samuels and he became progressively “hostile.” The duo’s relationship really took a turn for the worse when Safaree reportedly didn’t show up for one of Nicki’s performances, leaving her to find another hype man at the last minute.
Earlier this week, HipHollywood obtained photos of Safaree without his shirt off, exposing his newly covered up Minaj tattoos.
Neither parties have publicly responded to the breakup.
