NIcki Minaj is a single woman after kicking her boyfriend of fourteen years to the kerb. Trouble is, no-one ever really knew she had a long-term man!
The singer had been in an on-again-off-again relationship with Safaree Samuels for fourteen years, but it now it seems things are really over.
Although she has never discussed the relationship in interviews and has actively avoided questions about Safaree, the couple were definitely an item. Not only was Safaree employed as Nicki's personal assistant, he was also an executive producer on her 2012 album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded and often appeared on stage as a backup rapper or "hype man."
The couple apparently worked under the arrangement that Nicki was the main earner and Safaree worked towards building up her career – something he grew increasingly unhappy about.
Things came to a head when Safaree didn't show up to one of Nicki's recent gigs, forcing her to find another backup rapper at the last second.
The pair have not spoken openly about their split (no surprise there), but it appears Nicki's man has had work done to cover up the tattoos of her name and face on his chest.
That'll be awkward if they get back together!
