Safaree Samuels

DESTROYED in Rap Battle

Over Nicki Minaj & Meek Mill's Penis

6/18/2015 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nicki Minaj was running through her ex Safaree Samuels' head -- over and over and over -- as he got ripped to shreds over their breakup in a rap battle on "Wild 'N Out."

For some bizarre reason Safaree subjected himself to the EPIC humiliation on Nick Cannon's show ... going head-to-head with Chico ... and it was barely a competition. 

Sure, he got in like ONE shot ... but watch, this is 98% destruction of Nicki's ex and a celebration of Meek Mill's penis!

Guess this means Safaree's over the breakup -- but his loss is our victory.

Terrence Howard

Ex-Wife Tries Covering Up Extortion

By Witness Intimidation

EXCLUSIVE

0611-terrence-howard-michelle-ghent-tmz-instagram-01Terrence Howard claims his ex-wife tampered with a witness in an effort to cover up her alleged extortion plot to squeeze the actor for a fortune.

Terrence's attorney, Brian Kramer, filed legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- in which Terrence claims Michelle Ghent tried to strong-arm his brother's wife so she wouldn't blow the lid on the alleged extortion plot.  

According to the docs, Michelle told Yvonne Howard she was going to scare Terrence into paying her big money ... scare him by threatening to go public about sexual trysts and other lurid info.

But Terrence says when Michelle learned Yvonne was on his witness list to tell the judge about the extortion, she went to Yvonne and put on a full-court press, trying to dissuade her from taking the stand or being deposed.

Yvonne says in a new declaration, Michelle pressured her, explaining no one could force her to testify. Yvonne also says Michelle urged her to keep their conversation secret, and Yvonne says Michelle pressed so hard it felt like plain intimidation.

Terrence is trying to set aside a settlement agreement in which Michelle would get a huge chunk of Terrence's "Empire" money for next season.

And Now I'm In Love With Meek Mill

6/11/2015 6:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0611-nicki-minaj-safaree-tmz-01Nicki Minaj was a loving and loyal girlfriend to ex Safaree Samuels until he went and cheated on her ... according to Nicki herself. 

In response to Safaree's new and bitter song all about his relationship with Minaj, the "Pink Friday" rapper let a few things off her chest ... tweeting, "Lesson: don't cheat on a loyal woman. God will punish u. When he does, tell people the truth. The truth may set u free. Love. Always."

Minaj deleted that tweet, along with several others, but made sure not to take down the one that probably will hurt Safaree the most: "And just for the record, I'm in love with meek."

Simple, but effective.

0609_nicki_minaj_safaree_tmz_instagramNicki Minaj’s ex Safaree Samuels rages in a new song that his blood, sweat and tears made her what she is, yet she treated him like dirt.

Safaree's song “Love The Most” will be released at the end of the week, but we got hold of it, and he's airing as much dirty laundry as he can in 5 minutes.

Among his gripes ... alleged infidelity, refusal to have his baby, coldly rejecting him and rubbing in his nose her new relationship with rapper Meek Mill

And he even throws in a reference to pills for bad measure.

At one point he says Nicki made him look like Bozo the Fool, rapping: "Had to watch you kiss Nas and pretend it's all cool / Inside I was feeling like a motha f**king fool."

Their 12 year relationship ended last year, and Minaj rebounded with Meek Mill

Nicki's camp had no comment.
