The two rappers accused each other of domestic abuse.

Nicki Minaj and Safaree Samuels are doing the most today.

Just days following the release of her album Queen, Minaj has already embroiled herself in a Twitter war with her ex of 12 years, rapper and Love & Hip Hop star Safaree Samuels. Alongside allegations concerning a stolen credit card, songwriting credits, and fake hairlines, the two also accused each other of domestic abuse. Here’s what you need to know about their troubling allegations and tweets.

Minaj and Samuels were in a relationship for 12 years before things ended on a sour note in 2014. According to the Daily Beast, it ended with another laundry list of lawsuits, shady tweets, and diss tracks. She also accused Samuels then of physical and emotional abuse.

On Tuesday, Minaj did an interview with radio station Hot 97, in which she dished on her tumultuous relationship with Samuels. “You don’t know the fucked up shit he did to me,” she said.

Samuels asserted in the past that he wrote many of Minaj’s songs, which Minaj has repeatedly denied. In the radio interview, Minaj once again addressed his claims and expressed her clear disdain for her ex. “So now years later you want to come back and say ‘I lied’ after you tried to tarnish my image,” she said. Minaj later added that he stole her credit cards and hired prostitutes.

Samuels caught wind of his ex’s comments and launched into a Twitter rant to defend his honor. “How many times have I said I never wrote ur raps? Nobody even talks about that anymore,” he wrote. Samuels also denied stealing her card and implied that Minaj had become involved with rapper Meek Mill before their relationship ended.

He also said that Minaj had cut him and that he had almost died. He claimed that he told the police that he was trying to kill himself so Minaj would not face consequences.

It was at this point that the “Chun-Li” rapper blasted off her own set of tweets, sparking a full-on “he said, she said” Twitter fight.

“U stole my card & told me you thought it was an account with ‘free money’ that I didn’t know about. On God. God will strike you down & more for lying. Ha! Stop saying u packed & left ! On Jesus u came to my house CRYING BEGGING to go w|me to Europe to the EMA’s. I said NO DUMMY,” she wrote.

She then said she should’ve “never paid for that gyatDamn hairline!!!!” and dragged innocent bystander Tyga into the mix by outing him for, apparently, also donning fake hair.

Popular radio host Charlamagne tha God of The Breakfast Club fame also had something to say.

This prompted Samuels to once again claim that she cheated on him with Meek Mill. He also denied begging to go to Europe with her.

Minaj countered his accusations and said that Samuels hit her and Meek Mill, and asked them to get his nudes back from someone.

Samuels took this time to clarify the situation surrounding his and Tyga’s fake hair and said someone had been trying to leak his nude photos for years. “But is this suppose to be your promo run? I’m flattered that you feel talking about me can help. I can’t believe ur still mad,” he wrote.

His last tweet read, “It’s about to be 5wholeee years. There’s no way I could hold on to something that long. You can front all you want you’re not happy. Don’t talk about my Big Dick swinging in the shower video no1 knows about that 1,” followed by three whining emojis.

Minaj concluded her posts, tweeting, “Ok I will take notes from now til #QueenRadio. Nothing left to say on social media.”

Many of her followers were supportive throughout the entire ordeal and sent her messages of encouragement, which she retweeted.

Despite both sides laying down their arms (and phones), knowing Minaj and Samuels’ complicated past, it seems like this beef is far from over.

No word from Tyga on the hair plugs though.
