Fears for singer’s ex as he ‘contemplates suicide’

It’s not so long ago that Nicki Minaj confirmed that she had split from her long-term boyfriend Safaree Samuels, and now that reports are claiming that she has taken up with a new man, it seems Samuels is feeling the strain of their split.

According to reports, Samuels has caught word that Nicki is dating fellow rapper Meek Mill, with the revelation leaving him devastated.

A source told entertainment site TMZ that Samuels has become a total “shut-in” after hearing about Nicki’s alleged hook-up, and shockingly, friends say he has spoken “openly” about suicide.

Nicki and Samuels dated for 12 years and announced their split back in October, following weeks of rumours.

Nicki was recently questioned by Ryan Seacrest over her potential new romance with Mill, but she denied any claims that she had a “new boy”.
