Safaree Samuels was seen in public for the first time after announcing he was a "bachelor" and "divorcing" his wife, Erica Mena.

Everyone agrees that Erica, 32, can do a lot better than Safaree. While he entertains IG models in his DMs, sources say Erica has quite a few options to choose from.

It came as no surprise this week when part-time ghostwriter Safaree Samuels announced he and his wife Erica Mena were back on the market.

Fans immediately smelled a PR stunt by two reality TV personalities desperate for attention amid the ongoing Covid-19 lockdowns.

They were correct. Safaree, 39, walked back his divorce announcement in less than 24 hours.

In a post on Instagram.com, Safaree wrote: "A man is nothing without his family. Im not a bachelor & I love my wife I would never disrespect the mother of my child or wife. Sorry for being childish & Salute to all the real men out there."

But that isn't the end of the story. There are persistent rumors about curvy Instagram models sliding into Safaree's DMs and renting space in Erica's head.

That could explain why Safaree walked back his announcement so quickly.

Erica, 32, previously dated former kiddie rapper Bow Wow, the late Cliff Dixon, NYC radio personality DJ Envy, and she had a brief emotional fling with socialite Cyn Santana.

No surprise here: Safaree Samuels says he and his wife Erica Mena are back on the market.

The 39-year-old part-time ghostwriter and reality TV personality announced he filed for a divorce from his wife of just over 1 year.

The couple met on the set of VH1's Love & Hip Hop: New York and sparks flew. Unfortunately, their torrid relationship cooled off and he eventually saw the light in his DMs on social media.

For months now, Instagram models boasted that they had Erica Mena's man. A long-suffering wife can only take so much disrespect from her cheating husband.

The former couple welcomed their first child together earlier this year. She also has a son named King Conde.

Nicki Minaj's ex Safaree Samuels has become a first-time father and a #girldad, after wife Erica Mena gave birth to a baby girl.

Safaree announced the happy news on his Instagram page on Monday, alongside a picture of himself holding his daughter's tiny hand, WENN.com reported.

"These pass (sic) 24 hrs have been an adventure to say the least!!" he wrote. "I'm a part of the #girldad club now. Perfection is here."

The hashtag #girldad trended after Kobe Bryant previously termed himself a "girl dad" because he fathered four girls with his wife, Vanessa Bryant. One of his daughters, Gianna, 13, died with him in a helicopter crash last month.

Male celebrities who have sons and daughters have incorrectly tagged images of themselves as #girldads. A girl dad is a father who has all girls.

In a post on his Instagram Stories, Safaree apologized to fans after he had to cancel a show when Erica's waters broke. Safaree is pictured above with his ex-fiancee Nicki.

"Sorry to everyone who came out to see me in Rhode Island last night," he wrote alongside a picture of himself on a plane. "But as I was getting ready to leave my wife's water broke."

The baby's name has yet to be revealed.

Erica, who already has a son, King Conde, shot to fame appearing on VH1 show Love & Hip Hop New York before moving to Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. Safaree began appearing on the show following his split from "Megatron" rapper Nicki in 2014.

Black Twitter is buzzing about Nicki Minaj's ex-boyfriend, Safaree Samuels, who dropped a baby off in Erica Mena, but left Nicki childless.

Safaree and Nicki were high school sweethearts. They dated for years before she rose to fame as one of the nation's top female rappers.

He contributed to Nicki's career. He is even credited as co-executive producer on Nicki Minaj's album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.

Safaree, 38, and Nicki, 36, broke up after 12 years. Now comes word that he is engaged to reality TV star Erica Mena and she is knocked up with his seed.

Safaree is set to wed rapper Bow Wow's ex-fiancee, Erica, on October 7, after Safaree proposed to the reality TV star on Christmas Eve last year.

The pair revealed they are expecting their first child together a week before their big day.

"It’s a big deal, a very big deal, I didn't think I was capable of doing this," he said in a YouTube video. "I am excited, nervous, in shock, in disbelief."

Erica, 31, already has a son, King Conde, from a previous relationship. She didn't disclose how far along she is, but the couple revealed their baby is due in early 2020.

Erica appeared on the VH1 show Love & Hip Hop New York before moving on to Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. She was previously involved in a made-for-TV relationship with reality TV star Cyn Santana.

That sham relationship led to speculation that her relationship with Safaree is also fake.

Safaree began appearing on the reality show following his split from Nicki in 2014.

Chance The Rapper and J Prince Jr (not pictured) celebrated their birthdays at Allure nightclub and lounge in Atlanta on Monday. Also in the house were Bow Wow and his ex-girlfriend Erica Mena; Gervonta Davis and Ari Fletcher, YFN Lucci (without Reginae Carter), Ari's ex G Herbo, and more.
