Nicki Minaj says her ex is suing her for physical and emotional abuse

The rapper tweeted about the lawsuit from Safaree Samuels last night (May 10)

Nicki Minaj has said that her ex-boyfriend has filed a lawsuit against her for physical and emotional abuse.

In a string of tweets last night (May 10), Minaj claimed Safaree Samuels was “victimizing” her for “celebrat[ing her] happiness”.

“Tweeted on the 5th that the 6th was my baby’s bday,” she tweeted initially, referring to rapper and current partner Meek Mill’s birthday. “Celebrated on the 6th for his bday (publicly). Served w/a lawsuit on the 9th. lol”.

“Two years later this poor excuse of a man is suing me & claiming to have been physically & emotionally abused. Lol. He’s so miserable,” she added.

Complex reports that she later suggested that Mill had asked Samuels to stop contacting Minaj via email and hinted that her ex was trying to stir up trouble for the reality TV show Love And Hip-Hop: Hollywood that he’s rumoured to be joining.

“My man asked him to stop emailing me. I also asked him several times. This man can’t move on. It’s really sad. I have the emails to prove it,” she wrote.

“U really want me showing these emails? I know u need a story line to be on reality Tv. God punishing u & u bout to get more!!!!!”

Minaj broke up with Samuels in 2014 after being in a relationship with him for 12 years. Their break-up inspired her latest album ‘The Pinkprint’.
