Erica Mena’s Divorce From Safaree Samuels
It’s no secret that Erica Mena is not happy with her husband Safaree Samuels. Despite living under the same roof, the actress filed for divorce from him in May. Their argument can be traced back to a fall in which Safire got injured. During the fall, Safaree Samuels stood nearby and laughed, to Erica’s dismay.
Erica Mena and Safaree Samuels met each other on the set of VH1’s Sacred famous. They later dated and went on to sign up for Love and Hip Hop Atlanta. Eventually, the couple got engaged in December 2017 and got married in October 2018. The couple didn’t have a large crowd at their wedding.
Samuels and Mena have two kids together. They’ve had a fallout before their divorce. Safaree has denied cheating on his wife, but she claims she’s the father of his daughter. It’s unclear whether the two have more children together. In fact, the couple hasn’t disclosed their fertility plan or whether she’s pregnant. The couple also have an older son from another marriage.
Erica Mena’s ex-husband Safaree Samuels is divorcing her. Mena’s ex-husband claimed she’d destroyed the couple’s expensive items during a recent fight. The actress is demanding at least $50k in damages. She’s also considering filing felony charges for criminal destruction of property. Apparently, she even has security footage of the incident.
While they’re currently separated, Erica Mena’s ex-husband Safaree Samuels announced the birth of their second child on Instagram. She captioned the post, “MR Straittt Jr.!”—a reference to Samuels’ upcoming album 2020. The couple has not announced the name of the baby yet.
Mena is bisexual and comes from Dominican and Puerto Rican ancestry. She has a son with rapper Raul Conde. The couple was engaged for a while before getting married in October. However, rumors of extramarital affairs and neglect of their children marred their relationship.
