Nicki Minaj is no stranger to fame. The well-known rapper has earned a name for herself in the hip-hop world. However, not much is known about her ex-boyfriend, rapper Safaree Samuels. Fans of the former couple are hitting up the internet, searching for terms like, “Safaree Samuels wiki,” “Is Safaree Jamaican?”, “How much is Safaree Samuels worth?”, “Nicki Minaj ex-boyfriend Safaree Samuels net worth,” “Why did Safaree and Nicki Minaj break up?”, “Nicki Minaj ex-boyfriend Safaree Samuels,” and “Nicki Minaj and Safaree video.” Don’t worry; we’ll tell you everything you need to know about Safaree Samuels, including his net worth.

Here are four facts to know about Nicki Minaj’s ex-boyfriend, Safaree Samuels:

#1 Safaree Samuels Net Worth

Safaree Lloyd Samuels , who goes by many nicknames such as SB, VVS Beezy, and Scaff Breezy, is estimated to have a net worth of $2 million, which is a paltry amount, as compared to his ex-girlfriend Nicki Minaj’s net worth of $70 million.

The 35-year-old built his fortune by working with Minaj, and his collaborations with other artists have increased his net worth.

#2 Relationship With Nicki Minaj

Safaree Samuels and Nicki Minaj were in a long-term relationship and dated for almost 12 years, before splitting up in 2014. The former couple denied rumors of being together for a long time, but confirmed they were together on VH1’s reality show Fabulous Life: Nicki Minaj. Their well-documented breakup was splashed across headlines, because Minaj allegedly chased him out of her house with a baseball bat, and started hitting a Mercedes-Benz that she owned, but had loaned to Samuels.

The bitter exes engaged in several Twitter disputes. Nothing was off-limits as Minaj released an album The Pinkprint, based on their relationship, while Samuels released a single called “Lifeline” about Minaj and her new boyfriend, Meek Mill. He even went so far as to claim that he was Minaj’s ghost writer in an interview. In 2015, Samuels went on record to say that he ended the relationship. “I just got to the point where the respect wasn’t there. Everyone around her works for her, you know? So it got the point where it was like, I’m your man. I’m who you go to sleep with every night. I’m who you wake up with every morning. And it got to the point where I was being treated like an employee, instead of like her man.” Ouch!
