Safaree is definitely a hot topic right now after his nudes leaked online.
Recently he stopped by the Casey Crew Podcast, hosted by DJ Envy and his wife Gia Casey.
During the interview, Safaree talked about his leaked photos and videos, his rise within the industry, and of course his past relationships.
While reflecting on his relationship with Nicki Minaj, it was brought up by DJ Envy that Safaree experienced some abuse while in that relationship.
“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.
