Safaree Samuels and Erica Mena’s relationship continue to implode. The reality stars have seen their marriage become yet another convoluted story line for the latest season of Love & Hip-Hop. They both seem determined to paint the other in a bad light using their social media platforms to divulge more details on their messy breakup. This is made even worst by the fact that the estranged couple just welcomed a second baby together only weeks ago. Samuels is now accusing Mena of causing damage to some of his possessions including his motorcycle and sneakers.
The pair found initial success thanks to their past relationships with other famous people. Samuels famously dated Nicki Minaj in secret for years before their split. Erica has been connected with Bow Wow and spend many years in the backgrounds of some of our favorite music videos.
The two became a couple in 2018. They quickly took their relationship public with a wedding and baby announcement following soon after. The pair welcomed a child right before their nuptials, and seemed incredibly happy together with plans to continue growing their family. “Wow, wow, it’s a big deal! Very big deal. I didn’t know I was capable of doing this. I’m excited!” said Samuels in an instagram post during Mena’s first pregnancy.
It became obvious things had already gone sour this past fall as the two began to post separately, both alluding to being single. They also cleared their social media and removed any trace of one another. In a post from last November Samuels stood in front of his car and declared “BACHELOR!! Ending 2020 right!!” before later changing the caption. If the word bachelor was not obvious enough, he also tagged the television show Divorce Court in the image. Erica responded “No cocky $hit, ain’t too many like me. No man could ever stop me!!!!!!!” in an also deleted post.
While it seemed they were heading to a definite end, news hit that Mena was expecting a second child, Legend Brian, from Samuels. She gave birth last month to the baby boy. While Samuels posted a picture of the baby, he was later criticized for heading off to Jamaica to celebrate his birthday while Mena stayed in the hospital with Legend. In a post last week she alluded to some struggles she and the baby were facing. “So far five out of the ten days I felt lost. I’m feeling guilty, confused and scared.” She continued “This journey I’m on, feels long. It has been tough. I’m taking steps forward, and I’m taking some back.I have good days, and I’m preparing for the bad ones.” It was unclear why she was still in the hospital.
The pair are currently going through with their divorce, and court documents have leaked detailing some of their claims. Mena accused her estranged husband of cheating on her with Joe Budden’s ex girlfriend Kaylin Garcia. Court documents show that Safaree is upset about an incident that occured on May 23, 2020 where Mena poured bleach on a pair of custom sneakers valued at $30,000 and cut the laces.
He also claimed that she ruined two of his motorcycles and a four-wheeler motorbike by pouring paint all over them and into the exhaust pipes.
Safaree said that everything was captured on home security cameras, and he’s asking for a $50,000 reimbursement.
