Nicki Minaj ex-boyfriend Safaree Samuels can now breathe a sigh of relief after getting robbed at gunpoint.
TMZ reported that the two robbery suspects were arrested following a police high-speed chase. News of the robbery incident spread like wildfire on Monday after a visibly shaken Safaree sat down for an interview with Angie Martinez. Martinez asked Safaree about what was happening with him when he clearly didn’t look like he was okay. That’s when he revealed that he was robbed at gunpoint only a few hours before the interview.
“I just got robbed at gunpoint,” Safaree said. “A couple of hours ago, I just got robbed. Two dudes with guns just ran up on me. Had me face down on the floor with a gun to my head. They just took everything.”
Safaree can now sleep in peace because police nabbed the two suspects following a high-speed car chase from New Jersey to New York. They crashed their car on the George Washington Bridge and fled on foot. Cops picked them up a short time later a couple blocks apart. Cops released their names as Jonathan Ricketts and Shawn Harewood.
This morning was probably 1 of the worst scariest nights of my life.

The “Love and Hip Hop: New York” star told police that he was robbed of around $183,000 in cash and jewelry. It’s not clear if police found these items in the possession of the two robbery suspects.
Safaree Samuels made headlines last month when his massive eggplant leaked online and broke the net. He admitted that he wasn’t the one who leaked his own meat but still used the opportunity to promote his new single “Hunnid.” He is currently working on his new mixtape due this summer.
