Safaree Talks Nicki Minaj On The Wendy Williams Show
Safaree Samuels went on The Wendy Williams Show this week and discussed his ex-girlfriend Nicki Minaj, “shETHER,” and more.
Safaree decided that it was his time to clear the air about his relationship with ex-girlfriend Nicki Minaj on The Wendy Williams Show, but not without throwing some shade in the process. The two touched on a number of topics, including Safaree being name-dropped in “shETHER,” his lawsuit against Nicki, and how his relationship with The Pinkprint rapper fell apart.
Safaree on being name-dropped in Remy Ma’s diss track:
Wendy: What Remy basically said was that Nicki wouldn’t be Nicki if it weren’t for you helping her write her lyrics. Now who are you to her– lyrically speaking?
Safaree: As far as that whole process goes, it was a collaborative effort.
Safaree: She doesn’t sit there and do absolutely nothing. But you know. I definitely am a helping force… it’s not like I was just a waste mat.
Wendy: So 12 years together, and she became famous to us during this time. Did you help her with virtually 100% of the music that she put forward during this time?
Safaree: Of course. Everything, yeah.
Safaree on suing Nicki Minaj:
Wendy: You guys never had paper work together, but I also understand math. So ow that you aren’t together anymore, you wanna be paid– you wanna be compensated.
Safaree: It’s only fair.
Wendy: You guys were together, and I’m not discounting your love but you never had a baby… Y’all were never married?
Safaree: Nah, none of that.
Wendy: She’s denying that she owes you anything.
Safaree: Well, of course she’s going to say that.
(Later) Safaree: You know I had started a whole lawsuit and everything, but I just kind of fell back from it. There was just a lot of stuff going on behind the scenes.
Safaree on how his relationship with Nicki Ended:
Wendy: Why did y’alls relationship end? You and Nicki?
Safaree: The last like year, year and a half, it just got really– it just got really different.
Wendy: Different how?
Safaree: We just grew apart. We just grew apart. And at the end of the day, Meek had a lot to do with it. With me and her breaking up.
Wendy then broke down the story on how Safaree introduced Meek Mill to Nicki, and that he had enough confidence in Meek to give him Nicki’s phone number. Safaree ended the interview by confirming that he would never get back together with Nicki. He also confirmed that Nicki’s camp tried to stop his appearance on The Wendy Williams Show, but that clearly didn’t pan out.
