Update:

Safaree has released an official statement on the fiasco. You can read it below:

Initially things were being handled privately behind the scenes but it was taken to social media and unfortunately its now being played out in the public eye which could easily be interpreted as a cry for attention. Safaree will not continue in any more social media feuds and at this time we are unable to comment or provide any details pertaining to the current legal proceedings that are taking place with Safaree Samuels and Nicki Minaj. We are confident that things will be both favorable and amicable for all parties.

Original Story:

Meek Mill celebrated his 29th birthday over the weekend, with girlfriend Nicki Minaj gifting the rapper an iced out timepiece. The celebration was cut short though, as Nicki herself received something less desirable: a lawsuit courtesy of her ex Safaree Samuels. "Tweeted on the 5th that the 6th was my baby’s bday. Celebrated on the 6th for his bday (publicly). Served w/a lawsuit on the 9th. lol," she wrote on Twitter Tuesday night (May 10), suggesting that the lawsuits timing was intentional.

Minaj published a long sting of tweets on the matter, a full sampling included below, and abridged version going as follows. "Niggaz get mad when they can’t come & live lavish wit u…. #poorting I know it hurts. Two years later this poor excuse of a man is suing me & claiming to have been physically & emotionally abused. Lol. He’s so miserable... My man asked him to stop emailing me. I also asked him several times. This man can’t move on. It’s really sad. I have emails to prove it...Calling my mother crying. I said I’d help. But as soon as meek asked him to stop emailing me it’s a problem. LEAVE US ALONE!!!!! PLEASE!!! LIKE I CANT EVEN CELEBRATE MY MAN BDAY W/O THIS MISERABLE SON OF A BITCH TRYING TO EXTORT ME!!!!! Caught him stealing money and never prosecuted him!!! Now I’m DOING IT. ENOUGH!!!!!... U were abused my nigga? Look @ what you’ve become. Gods wrath is no no joke. You Will regret every lie u said about me....I could never sue a person who gave me all they had to give. Accept that u messed up & move on."

Safaree responded, alluding to Nicki's #poorting tweet, writing, "Trust and believe nobody wants to live with you #richthing Attn: money doesn’t buy happiness. The ones with it are the most pressed." Samuels has sued or was thinking of suing Minaj in the past for royalties to her past hits, claiming that he played a bigger role in creating them than the rapper would let on.
