Erica Mena wishes for a time machine as ex Safaree reveals true feelings for ex Nicki Minaj.

During a recent appearance on the We In Miami Podcast, the rapper-turned-reality-star discussed his split with Barbz. When asked about the biggest obstacle he’s faced since their split he replied: “I was with Nicki, we broke up. So her fans and certain people wanted it to be like, ‘okay, they’re not together anymore… f*** him. Let him be nothing, let him disintegrate, let him disappear.”

He continued: “I had two of the biggest people in the world against me,” seemingly referring to the “FTCU” rapper and her then-boyfriend, Meek Mill. “That made everybody be against me. Nobody wanted to be next to me. Nobody wanted to work with me. It just made everything hard. That was a dark time for me.”

“10 years later, 10-15 TV shows later… I’m still here. Some people don’t like that,” he added.

After catching wind of the comments, “The Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta” star, who shares two children with Safaree, Safire Majesty, 4, and Legend Brian Samuels, 3, voiced her embarrassment about the situation.

“I will FOREVER be embarrassed I gave sis these incredible beautiful babies,” she commented on Instagram. “He don’t even talk or care about his seeds this much online or in real life.”

Nicki and Safaree were an item for over a decade before calling it quits in 2014. Later on, the Pink Friday 2 artist found love again with Kenneth Petty, tying the knot in 2019.

Safaree, not to be outdone, also tied the knot with Mena that same year. However, less than two years into their marriage, trouble brewed for the “Love & Hip Hop” power couple. In 2021, Mena hit the brakes with a divorce filing, and by 2022, their marriage was officially dissolved.
