Minaj, 32, started it, tweeting, “Even when I try to protect ppl, they still try to take advantage of me. Haven't u learned that God is in control? Stop while you're ahead.”
Minaj implied that she encouraged Samuels to start his own music career, noting on Twitter, “Wanted fame. I gave u my blessing. I still love. I still love. I still love. I'll always love. So disappointed.
“Told u It was the wrong move. I sheltered and protected u for years. Loyal for years. Come on. Selling ids? Cuz I'm happy now? Disgusting. Add up them chains watches bracelets rings cars bikes trex's babe. Stop spending money to floss on IG. that doesn't last. Love lasts."
Then Samuels responded on Twitter, writing, "im doing interviews about my s--t and s--t im promoting.. not 1 thing said im doing interviews about nicki. yall sound ridiculous."
The rapper continued with vitriol aimed at Samuels (but with the exact reasons unclear), “Anything you don't appreciate will be taken. God sees your ungrateful evil soul. I gave and gave and gave. Threatening me? Blackmail? Jump. 30K watch the night my cousin was killed on the street like a dog. More than rappers. But it was never enough. Don't make me. Too much love."
“and speaking to some1 about pub and splits isnt blackmail. stop looking for pitty.. u handle your buisness why cant i? and its not Bout fame its about respect and youve had 0 for me the pass few years.the 0 respect u had for me at home had nothing 2do w/music.”
Samuels wrote that the “Bang Bang” singer shouldn’t have taken Twitter to share her bad feelings about him.
“im dissapointed too.. ur doin something to me publicly that the public doesnt know your doing but your the victim cuz ur famous.. smh,” he wrote.
“its so ridiculous that instead of hitting my phone u come on here.. i dnt kno what your talking about at alll!! i would never do that!!! were not 2gthr nemore im fine with that.but im not goin back m forth w/u on here.i cant believe were doin dis. we use 2 laugh at ppl 4 this.”
Recently, Minaj talked about her split from Samuels, saying,”This is somebody I grew up with. Like, I don't even know how I'm going to function without that person in my life.”
