Safaree Samuels, a 36-year-old rapper most famous for dating Minaj for 12 years, is the latest celebrity to have nude images leaked onto the internet. While the video does not reveal Samuels’ face, his signature tattoos can be seen clearly. The video and photo surfaced less than 24 hours after the rapper released a new single with Sean Kingston.
As of press time, it’s unclear who leaked the photos, or why. Some speculate that it could be revenge porn—perhaps leaked by his ex-girlfriend Star Divine, who revealed on Snapchat in 2017 that he cheated on her—while others actually believe the video was leaked by Samuels himself to hurl him back into the public eye and create hype around his new music.
Samuels’ management did not immediately respond to the Daily Dot’s request for comment about the images.
Safaree finally figured out how to boost his music sales, good for him bruh

The images of Samuels went viral exactly one week after a sex tape of reality TV star Blac Chyna surfaced online. Quite a few folks on Twitter have noted the hypocrisy in the way the public has reacted to Samuels’ photos very positively, whereas last week many people were critics of Chyna’s behavior in the sex tape. It looks like there’s still a double standard for men and women when their naked bodies go viral.
Black Chyna video get leaked and she’s a hoe. Safaree video get leaked and y’all praise him 😐. This why idfw this generation 🚮

The difference in the reaction to Safaree's dick video & Black Chyna's video by both men & women has been very hypocritical, as expected.

Did Safaree consent to the release of these pics/videos…or is this just another example of folks ignoring the fact that celebs are humans, too, who deserve a right to privacy?

Since his public and messy breakup with Minaj in 2014, Samuels joined the cast of the VH1 reality show, Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood, in 2016. In 2017, he moved to New York to join the Love & Hip Hop: New York cast.
