After dating her hype man for several years, tongues are now wagging that Nicki Minaj has moved on to a new man. Minaj, 31, was spotted this week around L.A. with an unidentified man that many believe is Safaree Samuels replacement. Samuels is of course Nicki’s dedicated right hand who she’s been romantically linked to for years.
The watchful photogs over at TMZ noted that the “mystery man” joined Nicki at an “American Idol” launch party at Katsuya restaurant on Jan. 10 and besides a few bodyguards, no other Minaj handlers were spotted with the two. Minaj’s alleged new boy toy was also spotted earlier in the week, waiting as Minaj went to a local nail salon. He has yet to speak to the paparazzi.
The news of Minaj’s new boyfriend comes on the heels of a confirmed breakup in Minaj’s life; one with her hairstylist. Terrence Davidson who previously dished on the rapper’s trademark wigs with rolling out, released a statement this week confirming that the two have parted ways. The hair guru cited “creative differences” for the split.
