Nicki Minaj’s ex-boyfriend Safaree Samuels was compared with Meek Mill after the former posted a photo of his toned physique on Instagram Sunday. However, according to the Inquistr, the NSFW photo was later taken down following criticism from fans.

Some social media users posted messages aimed at Minaj’s current boyfriend Mill, saying that Samuels' latest photo could give the Philadelphia rapper “a run for his money.” Some fans also praised Samuels for his commitment to staying fit and said he was better suited for Minaj than Mill.

“Safaree looks a hell of a lot better than Meek Mill, so in terms of physique and facial appearance, Nicki downgraded,” a Twitter user wrote, while another said: “Damn Safaree. I get it nicki.”

Samuels and Minaj ended their 12-year relationship last year after rumors surfaced that the “Anaconda” singer had cheated on him.

Earlier this month, reports surfaced that Samuels was planning to sue Minaj because she had not given him due credit for his contribution in her three hugely successful albums.

According to TMZ, Samuels wanted his share of income from Minaj’s albums -- "The Pink Print," "Pink Friday" and "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded." He also reportedly wants his cut from her singles, including “Only,” which featured Chris Brown, Drake and Lil Wayne. The report added that Samuels had already found himself a lawyer and that a lawsuit was “imminent.”

Minaj is currently dating Mill, who has been making headlines for months because of his ongoing feud with Drake.

In August, Samuels praised Drake's diss track "Back to Back," which was aimed at Mill, giving rise to speculation that Minaj’s ex was in support of Mill’s rival.

Meanwhile, Minaj and Mill, who have been surrounded with several engagement rumors, can’t get enough of each other. Minaj recently posted several PDA-filled photos with her rapper boyfriend at the American Music Awards on Nov. 22 in Los Angeles.
