Nicki Minaj‘s breakup with her longtime boyfriend, record producer Safaree “SB” Samuels, took an ugly turn Saturday when the two got involved in a Twitter war.
According to Vibe magazine, Minaj addresses rumors that Samuels is attempting to blackmail her by selling videos, describing her ex as an “ungrateful evil soul,” and adding that she protected Safaree and supported his desire to be famous.
All but two of Nicki’s tweets have since been deleted. One remaining tweet reads, “I’m sorry. My fans know this isn’t me. Hate this. But I’m human. I do so much. Too much. No man would have stayed loyal in this game like me.”
In another post, Nicki writes, “Let me be happy now. God.”
In tweets of his own, Safaree argues, “and speaking to some1 about pub and splits isnt blackmail. stop looking for pitty.. u handle your buisness why cant i ?”
He adds, “and its not Bout fame its about respect and youve had 0 for me the pass few years.the 0 respect u had for me at home had nothing 2do w/music.”
Last Wednesday, while promoting her third album, The Pinkprint, Nicki broke down during an interview while talking about the split.
The two had been dating for 15 years.
