Nicki Minaj’s ex-boyfriend Safaree Samuels appeared on the “Wendy Williams Show” on Tuesday and spilled a ton of tea about his relationship with the “Pinkprint” rapper.

The “Love & Hip Hop” star first weighed in on Nicki’s beef with Remy Ma, but things got interesting when asked about his relationship with Minaj. Pressed to reveal why the two stopped dating, Safaree found himself at a loss for words for a few seconds.

“The last year, year and half, it just got really different,” Samuels said about he and Minaj, saying they “just grew apart” and revealed Meek Mill had “a lot to do with it.” As the story goes, Safaree was the one who introduced the “Dream Chasers 4” rapper to Nicki and as the three got close, Safaree eventually gave Meek’s phone number to Minaj so they could work together.

According to Safaree, he was a part of the creative process during the making of Minaj’s “Pinkprint” album up until the final few weeks. “In the last month that’s when we were just going through all the songs and stuff, and then I found out there were two songs with [Meek Mill] on the album.”

Samuels said the discovery of two collaboration tracks by Meek and Nicki led him to realize there was more to their relationship. He eventually left the relationship a few months later. When asked if he would get back together with Minaj, he replied, “Nah… Not at all.”

Details about his relationship weren’t the only bombshells Safaree dropped. Later in the interview, the rapper revealed Nicki Minaj’s team tried to prevent him from appearing on Williams’ show. When asked if Nicki was paranoid and what her feelings about his interview were, Safaree simply replied, “[Nicki’s camp] tried to stop it.”

At the end of February, Safaree said Nicki Minaj lost some credibility following Remy Ma’s “shETHER” diss. “Credibility wise, it’s just a very disrespectful record. It’s probably the most disrespectful record I’ve ever heard in my life,” he told TMZ.
