Is Nicki Minaj A Single Lady Now?


Fellas, Nicki Minaj might be a single woman now -- although, she never confirmed that she was in a relationship to begin with.

According to TMZ, Nicki and her long-time man Safaree Samuels have split. The two have been dating for about 14 years, but Nicki would never publicly speak about the relationship.

They reportedly called it quits because Samuels (b.k.a. “Scaff Beezy”) wanted to pursue a rap career of his own, while Nicki wanted to keep their current arrangement.

He was the executive producer of her Roman Reloaded album, in addition to being an A&R for her debut and sometimes serving as her hype man. Things apparently hit the wall when Safaree skipped one of her shows and left her without a hype man, which later caused a blow out fight.

TMZ points to Samuels' tattoos as further proof that the two are no longer dating. He had several inked tributes to Nicki across his chest, which are now covered up with other tattoos.

While promoting her "Anaconda" single back in August, Nicki was asked whether she was a "size queen." In response, she admitted that, “I don’t have a lot of people to compare it to." When Hot 97 host Ebro joked that it's because she'd been in a relationship for over a decade, she tried to deflect by commanding him to, “shut up Ebro and mind your business."

Back in March, the couple sparked engagement and wedding rumors, when they were spotted on vacation wearing matching diamond bands.
