In September, Erica Mena was seen twerking the night away on her ex, Safaree Samuels, while filming the reunion series—despite her contentious relationship with the rapper. Erica was also spotted making out with her “Love & Hip Hop” co-star, Amina Buddafly, in footage shared on Instagram by entertainment site, realityentertainmenttv.
The ex-couple last made headlines in July, after Safaree accused the mother of his two children of destroying his personal property to the tune of $50k. The rapper filed court documents asking a judge to hold Erica in contempt for violating their domestic relations standing order, which forbids the destruction of property or harassment during their divorce process. TMZ obtained documents that revealed that Safaree accused the mother of his children of destroying his property on May 23, two days after she filed for divorce.
Erica put her estranged husband on blast in July, after he was spotted celebrating his birthday at a bash in Miami alongside Kaylin Garcia, the ex-girlfriend of Joe Budden. The duo was spotted getting cozy at the party and word seemingly got back to Erica, who had recently given birth to the pair’s second child.
In August, Erica admitted that she had trashed Safaree Samuels‘ property but claimed that it was her ex’s cheating ways that set her off. TMZ obtained documents that confirmed the reality star’s confession— that she had damaged her then-husband’s property in the third trimester of her pregnancy. She blamed her rampage on “numerous acts of infidelity.”
The couple wed in a secret ceremony on October 7, 2019. The pair first connected on the VH1 series, “Scared Famous,” in 2017, and began dating at the end of 2018. Safaree proposed after the couple had been dating one month. Erica gave birth to their daughter, Safire, in February 2020. The ex-couple welcomed their second child about a month after Erica filed for divorce.
