In a new Hot 97 interview, Safaree revealed the last time they spoke and admitted he sometimes questions if he made the right decision to leave Onika.
“Me and her haven’t spoken in four and a half years. Yeah. I be counting. I wouldn’t say [we’d] get back, because I don’t know if – it’s just different. Of course [I still love her]. Just like, cordial. I don’t want beef with nobody. I don’t want nobody hating me. I’m at a point in my life where life’s way too short and you can lose life like that and it just don’t make no sense to be like, ‘Damn, I wish I could have told this person I loved them,’ or ‘Yo, have a nice day.’ … I did something the other day with BET and I was saying I felt like me walking away, I was kinda like, fed up and gave up. … I wonder if I made the right choice or not because it’s so hard out here. Before the poison got any worse – I just was like, yo, let me just step away from it.” (Hot 97)
A few weeks ago, Safaree talked about learning Nicki kissed rapper Nas when he briefly stepped away at her 2012 “Right By My Side” video shoot.
“I was there,” Safaree initially said when asked about Nicki Minaj and Nas kissing in the “Right By My Side” video in 2012. “You wanna know what’s so crazy? I didn’t know what happened until the video came out. I ain’t gonna lie. N*gga, I was hurt when that sh*t happened because before that I was able to be like, ‘Yeah, okay, cool. You gave Drake a lap dance, great. Lil Wayne. That was whatever. I was there the whole day and I was like, ‘D*mn. Did that happen when I left?'” (“Easily Offended”)
In February, Safaree admitted his manhood may have ultimately forced Nicki to stay with him.
“I don’t know, how do you know if she even knows or not? The funny thing is, she used to always say to me that, ‘If you didn’t have that thing I would have been left you.’ She would be cracking up laughing when she said it to me. I definitely do not want to do porn but some porn company reached out too. I don’t understand these people. Something leaks and then you guys want to ask the guy [to do porn]. I don’t want to do porn. I want to do music and TV and entertainment movies.” (TMZ)
Recently, Samuels came forward to break his silence on his now-infamous frontal nude leak.
“This is the first time I’ve left my crib since it happened. That’s not something I want out there. My nieces, they follow me, they watch everything I do. People who think I did it, I’m trying to do stuff for promo, that’s not [the case]. … That came from my Snapchat. … I’m not gonna lie, ’cause when it happened – the way my phone and everything was going off because I was shooting a video and my joint – pause – my Instagram, my phone, everything was just going crazy. I was just like, ‘Please, tell me that it’s not real.’ Something like this happened before but it was a fake picture. That wasn’t really me but when I seen this, I was just like, you know. I didn’t send that to somebody in Snap. You know how sometimes you make something and save it – I didn’t take a picture of my meat, I took a picture of myself. … I didn’t do that and say, ‘Okay, I’m going to put this out.’ … Why randomly now would I go and do that?” (“The Breakfast Club”)
