HOUSTON, TEXAS: Lyrica Anderson has received a long-overdue apology from Safaree Samuels. Nearly four years after alleging they slept together in the past, Nicki Minaj's ex-boyfriend turned to social media to issue a public apology to his old 'Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood' co-star.

Viewers of 'Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood' were stunned to find that Safaree and Lyrica Anderson had been doing more than simply messaging. During a 2018 episode of 'LHHH,' the 'Hunnid' rapper became agitated as his friend Ray J pressed him about "smashing" Lyrica. Both Safaree and the then 29-year-old agreed to contact each other for business purposes, but denied any other motive. Ray eventually coaxed the truth out of Safaree, claiming that Lyrica had previously admitted to her husband A1 that she and the Jamaican native had slept together. "Like I didn't mean for it to happen, it's just we be talking, and we were supposed to get on a song," the rapper said at the time.

Lyrica at the time told The Breakfast Club: "I never slept with Safaree, I’ve bever been alone with Safaree. I don’t know what crazy girl is talking about, I don’t know what droopy booty is on. I have had no relations with that man. Safaree claims that he said a joke to her [K. Michelle]—and she took it ran with it."

Lyrica was pregnant during the time of the adultery charges, and A1 and his close family wanted a paternity test. He reunited with her once it was determined that A1 is the father. On November 30, 2018, they welcomed their baby, Ocean Zion Bentley. Meanwhile, it was revealed in January of this year that Lyrica had filed for divorce from A1. Safaree's divorce from Erica Mena was finalized in September.
