The ex-boyfriend of Nicki Minaj, Safaree Samuels, has accused the rapper of attempting to kill him, when they were dating.
The two went separate ways in October 2014 after 12 years together.
Following Nicki Minaj’s radio interview with Hot 97, during which she addressed her ex Safaree Samuels, he made claims about a physical altercation that took place before they broke up.
“Remember the night you cut me and I almost died the police and ambulance had to take me out the crib on a stretcher,” tweeted Samuels.
“I had to lie and tell them I was trying to kill myself so they wouldn’t take you to jail. When things like that start happening more than once, it’s time to dip.”
Thirty five-year-old Nicki Minaj quickly responded to Samuels’ allegation on Twitter.
“You stole my card and told me you thought it was an account with ‘free money’ that I didn’t know about. God will strike you down and more for lying. Ha! Stop saying you packed and left! Oh Jesus, you came to my house crying begging to go with me to Europe to the EMA’s. I said: ‘no dummy’,” she wrote.
Then Samuels fired back, denying that he “used” her credit card.
“We know each other inside out. Everything there was for us. I didn’t use your card for prostitutes. We both didn’t trust each other. You did s— I did s—. You said you were messing with Meek (Mill) a few years before y’all got together and I’m not mad at that,” said Samuels.
Nicki Minaj previously rapped about not meaning “to cut” an ex in her 2014 song “Bed of Lies,” though she did not name Samuels specifically.
“I could tell you lying, get the f— out, don’t yell at me/ I ain’t mean to cut you I ain’t wanna catch a felony,” she said.
‘The People’ says multiple outlets report that a video released in 2014 shows Nicki Minaj chasing Samuels, 37, with a knife.
Samuels also recalled their “toxic” decade together, tweeting: “Towards the end, it got toxic and I just packed up and left. I did things for spite and so did you. I don’t wish you bad and I don’t want us back together just like I’m sure you don’t. I don’t need you, you don’t need me but we will always be linked in the public, no matter what.”
Samuels further wrote, “I still don’t have no hate for you because I’m happy in my own mind now. Enjoy your album dropping.”
Also referenced in their Twitter tiff was Tyga, who Nicki Minaj said went to the same doctor as Samuels for a hairline surgery.
“I should’ve never paid for that damn hairline! It fell back out because God don’t like ugly! You used me, but God had other plans!” tweeted Nicki Minaj.
But Samuels said he and Tyga went to different surgeons.
“First off me and Tyga didn’t go to the same doctor. We did it the same day; different doctors. Listen, I don’t know if this has to do with first week sales but you need to finish your zen,” Samuels responded.
Tygra responded by sharing a doctor’s website on Twitter, writing: “Tellem Tyga sent you.”
