Amid rumors of Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill’s engagement, Safaree Samuels bravely admits to missing his ex-girlfriend Minaj. Eleven years of being together is quite hard to forget and Samuels confesses that “everything is different” since their split last year.
In a revealing interview, Samuels opens up about his sentiments towards Minaj and their break-up. He was asked about how he felt watching Minaj break down during an interview about their split. Samuels responded to the question with a long pause. After the moment of silence, the up-and-coming rapper then said, “I didn’t even… I didn’t even watch that interview.”
He added, “I saw pieces of it, I would see people put up clips and stuff like that, but I don’t even like to watch stuff like that.”
Samuels also talked about how his life has changed. The two weren’t only a couple, they also considered themselves as a team. Samuels played a big role in building Minaj’s career by serving as her hypeman for years. Apparently, their relationship ran deeper than simply being boyfriend and girlfriend.
“It’s definitely different… Everything is different. It is what it is,” Samuels said.
Meanwhile, Minaj seemed to be moving on quite well. While her ex-boyfriend Samuels has been busy tweeting about missing her, the “Anaconda” artist has been occupied at teasing her fans with a possible engagement with current beau Meek Mills.

Last Wednesday, Minaj raised speculations when she tweeted a diamond ring emoji along with the words, “I’ll post it later.” And indeed, she did.

Just a few hours after posting that cryptic announcement on Twitter, Minaj posted a photo of her hand sporting a huge diamond ring that many claim to be an engagement ring.
Since the artist didn’t post any further information about the ring, E! News set off on an investigation to determine the ring’s value. They consulted Morgan Shara of MASbijoux jewelry who quoted the ring’s value at an estimated $500,000. The jeweler described the ring as “a 15-carat fancy yellow heart with a modified brilliant cut diamond mounted in platinum with a double halo of white pavé diamonds.”
Furthermore, an unidentified source also confirmed that the artist Minaj is truly engaged to Mills.
“It may seem like it all is happening very quickly but Nicki and Meek are in this 100. They truly love each other,” the source revealed.
