Keith obtained a restraining order against the actress last after saying she threatened to kill him.

Nicki Minaj Busts Out Boyfriend’s Mercedes Windows With Baseball Bat


Last week came the rumors that Nicki Minaj and her longtime boyfriend Safaree Samuels broke up. Now comes the backstory. Apparently. The two got into an argument and Nicki went Jazmine Sullivan and busted out the windows on his Mercedes Benz.

TMZ reports:

During the summer, Nicki and Safaree Samuels got into an argument. She started screaming, he got pissed, and she EXPLODED in anger, grabbing a bat and chasing him out of the house. She wisely chose property over person, and pulverized the 2012 Benz.

And for bad measure, she threw his clothes in the garbage.

Law enforcement sources tell us … cops were called to the house, but no arrests were made. Safaree was escorted out of the house and left.

As for why Nicki didn’t get in trouble … it appears she owned the Mercedes, but allowed him to use it, and you can’t get arrested for destroying your own property.

They broke up a short time later.

Safaree is in the process of removing his multiple Nicki tattoos.
