Finally Friday. It's been a tough, long, first "full" week back for most of us and what better way to start than start fresh like Nicki Minaj dumping her hype man Safari for another guy? With love still on your mind, did one of "Love & Hip Hop" on-camera stars get busted for something off-camera? Staying on the topic of ladies and fellas, does DMX have an issue with any female to bless a microphone? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

1. Downgrade You

Is Nicki Minaj rolling with a new love interest in her life? It wasn't too long ago when all those nasty reports of her and Safari getting into physical altercations started sprouting up across the Internet. Could something along those lines have contributed to Minaj now being spotted with another male alleged boy toy in her life? Gossip Daily has more:

Supposedly Nicki Minaj has found comforts in another man's arms. Her hype man Safaree has been MIA and replaced with a new mystery man. The new guy has been pictured with Nicki's close friends, family and on red carpets. Did Nicki Minaj downgrade? (Gossip Daily)

You would have to say it'd be a shame to think that Nicki just dumped Safari due to a falling out. Even though we never really knew what their relationship was, you'd have to think they were close friends at the very least. Could something have went down with them or is Safari maybe on vacation because, you know, hype men get tired too. #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Love & Hip-Cops

Did one of the cast members from "Love & Hip Hop" get busted this week? Turns out the manager people tend to mistake as a buttercup softie got some handcuffs thrown on him (expect this to be on an episode of VH1's hit show) over some silly baby mama drama. Media Take Out has the scoop:


January 11, 2013: Just when you thought that the show Love And Hip Hop NY couldn't have any MORE drama . . . one of the stars, Rich Dollaz was ARRESTED last night in Memphis - for CHILD SUPPORT. You see, his babys mother Chaundrea Nicolle had him put on Child support for their 12 year old daughter earlier this year. According to Chaundra he NEVER really paid any support. But Rich claims that he is not CERTAIN that the girl is IN FACT his. Either way, Rich went to Memphis, Chaundra's home town, yesterday to do a party. And Chaundra tipped off police - who apprehend Rich at the airport. Rich was released on bail and then he took to Twitter to GLOAT about getting out on Twitter. (Media Take Out)

It's sad at this point because we really have no idea how much stuff is planned and how much of this is really legit. It seems too much like a perfect twist for one of the "Love & Hip Hop" episodes. Remember when Juelz Santana got arrested last season around the season finale? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. Do My Ladies Run It?

Is DMX barking up the wrong trees? Turns out the Internet is buzzing off X lashing out at all female emcees. It's one thing to pick and choose, but when you go ahead and start saying every last one, especially some of the more notable and popular ones, then there's a problem. All Hip Hop Rumors has the inside:


DMX is well know to not be a fan of Drake, but female rappers? In a recent, twitter post, the dog apparently dissed all of the current rap chicks! I was shocked because in an act of humor, he included Drake. But if you know like I know, you know that all is not what it seems. Apparently, this is a fraud account with just a few followers. It was fun while it lasted. The real DMX is just "DMX" on twitter. This dude is "iamDMX" and as fake as a $3 bill. Enjoy the tweet. But its fake. (All Hip Hop Rumors)

Whew. Close one. You have to admit, over the latter part of 2012 and starting into 2013, DMX has really turned his life around. He may do the occasional diss toward Drake and call out Rick Ross for his materialistic raps, but X has avoided arrests, injurying himself on four-wheelers and looking pretty good, more or less. Hope X keeps it going. #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.
