Did Safaree Samuels really think Nicki Minaj would let him get away with dissing her big-time on his newest track? If he did, he was very wrong.

Minaj went off on her ex on Twitter after his tune “Love the Most” was leaked early Wednesday and then rush-released, telling him to move on, wishing him well and — in a tweet that’s since been deleted — saying he should take a lesson about not cheating on “a loyal woman.”

Oh, yeah, she also rubbed her new relationship in his face.

“God gave me a good heart. I always let ppl get over on me way too long. But that’s why I’m blessed. I’ll always b blessed. May God keep u. And just for the record, I’m in love with meek. Lol and now I have a huge smile on my face,” she said over the course of three tweets, name-checking Meek Mill, the guy she’s not engaged to — yet.


“Making a 12 yr relationship work at such young ages?,” the 32-year-old added. “We’re BOTH the real MVP. things got rocky at the end but we had a GREAT run. #B4Ujudge.”

Those were, by the way, the parts of her rant that survived deletion. A couple of sentiments she sent down the memory hole? Via TMZ, “Lesson: don’t cheat on a loyal woman. God will punish u. When he does, tell people the truth. The truth may set u free. Love. Always.” And via the New York Daily News, “Enough with the pity party. Just live your life.”

Minaj and Samuels’ decade-plus together ended toward the end of last year, with her saying after the split that she still wanted to get married and have kids in her life, in that order specifically.

In “Love the Most,” Samuels, 33, revisits their relationship in great detail, casting himself in the role of the supportive partner who helped her get rich and famous and Minaj as the one who hid their relationship for years, didn’t have a child with him, allegedly cheated — she says she didn’t — and then left him in the dust.


From the cranky chorus: “Why do people you love the most always want to hurt you? / How can I trust you again when I’m not around you / But when I’m down and out and it’s cold outside / Where were you? / And when you needed me I was always there / Now where are you?”

Sorry, Safaree. Looks like Nicky doesn’t want to be friends.
