Nicki Minaj may have official confirm she is dating her long-time friend and hype man Safaree Samuels aka Scaff Beezy or SB. The rapper tweeted an image of herself and SB with the caption , “Lol #ourawkwardcouplepicture”.
Fans immediately began to wonder if this was her way of confirming that the two are indeed a couple.
The couple reportedly began dating in 2010 and got into a headed exchange that made headlines back in 2011. Although Nicki or Samuels ever confirmed or denied the allegations, they were involved in a domestic violence investigation when they began arguing at a hotel in Dallas, TX where they’d been staying. According to the police report the incident resulted in Nicki getting injured. The case was eventually closed after lack of evidence and Nicki’s resistance to filing any charges and corroborating with police.
The pair spotted on a date back in 2011.
The two have been best friends since childhood who’ve worked together musically for years. In a previous interview with Power 105.1 Minaj says she relies on Samuels for his artistic input and that he has been instrumental for many of her musical successes.
