You learn something new everyday and it appears that Safaree was a battered boyfriend…. In a recent interview with DJ Envy and wife Gia’s podcast show Safaree sat down with the couple to talk his rise to fame, the nudes that dropped and his volatile relationship with his former love Nicki…
While reflecting on his relationship with Nicki Minaj, it was brought up by DJ Envy that Safaree experienced some abuse while in that relationship.You remember when Safaree was accused of abusing Nicki ? Well it was the other way around, but because her star was rising.. He took the blame… This doesn’t surprise me at all….
“I don’t wanna say you were battered but you were an abused boyfriend…sometimes Safaree couldn’t leave the crib,” he said. “I swear on everything!”
Safaree responded and said, “Nah, Nah that’s true but it’s because she was sheltered, she’s in her cocoon and I’m there with her. I didn’t really have a life outside of that. I was really comfortable but then the fights and stuff it was getting too crazy. I was like, you know what? I don’t wanna go to jail, I don’t wanna go to the hospital.”
He recalled an incident where Nicki asked him to get one of her bags from another room. However, the manner in which she asked him caused him not to respond to her request.
“I walked away, I’m not a confrontational person and I don’t like to argue. We’re not gonna be doing this all day every day, I’m not gonna have hands put on me and the verbal—it takes a while to get over that,” he said.
Safaree said it took him about 4 ½ years to regain confidence.
People may laugh and think it’s funny, but I so commend Safaree for even coming forward and revealing this.. That explains why he was suing her back in 2016 when they first broke up for Physical and emotional abuse, click here if you missed that…
