Nicki Minaj’s ex-boyfriend Safaree Samuels will reportedly be joining the cast of Vh1’s Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood, according to Inquisitr. Samuels, who is said to be dating his co-star Nikki Mudarris, reportedly hopes to use the show as a platform to promote his rap career.

“[Safaree] felt the decision was a perfect move for him to not only document his relationship with the socialite, but also promote his own music on the program,” the site reads.

The often private Samuels dated Minaj for more than 10 years before they called it quits. Since then, he has been linked to several women such as Mudarris and model Ana Montana.

The ex-couple have been in the news recently, as it was discovered Samuels slapped the Harajuku Barbie with a hefty lawsuit for allegedly physically and emotionally abusing him during their lengthy courtship. Minaj denied any wrongdoing, and called Samuels “miserable” during a Twitter rant against him.
