Safaree Samuel

Nicki Minaj's hapless ex-boyfriend Safaree Samuels probably thought his new girlfriend, Zashia Santiago, was a prize catch. It turns out Ms. Santiago is a convicted felon who worked as a certified nursing assistant until her arrest for identify theft.

According to Flex, Santiago collected patient IDs and social security numbers for her boyfriend, Cristobal Puig, who allegedly used the info to file fraudulent tax returns.

Santiago was promised $500 per patient once Puig received the refund checks. But their plans went awry and Santiago was busted.

She lost her job and her CNA license.

Santiago pled guilty to stealing patient personal information and one count of felony possession of 15 or more unauthorized access devices. She was spared prison and received a $100 fine and 100 hours of probation. Her light sentence probably means she snitched on her boyfriend.

Santiago is due back in court for violating the terms of her probation in May. Which means Safaree might have to put money on her books when he visits her in prison.

Poor Safaree. He stays losing. At least Santiago wasn't born a dude.

    • Letmecommentbeforeicant

      Nicki probably exposed this girl. Lol. She can't let Safaree move on to someone who naturally has body AND is pretty. Safaree might as well wait for all of her stuff to fade, since he probably knew already.

      He wasn't thinking, he was just too busy being concerned with how to make Nicki jealouse and from the looks of it ... It's backfiring.

    • iWasteTime

      This woman can be a felon, with 9 kids, 11 baby daddies and be addicted to chalk and she still a better come up than Meek


      pretty low down to steal from anyone. especially cruel to do it to folks u are paid to care for. everything in a pretty package aint good.

    • GuestSTAR

      If Nicki wanted his 'on the rebound' a$$ back today, he would go flying back to her, because he's still in love with her. Seems like he's just out there, out there trying to prove something, like he can get a badder btch than Nicki. Bet he's cryin himself to sleep at night.

    • Di Ana

      She got that Amber Rose vibe going on.

      Serious question: How does a person get convicted of a felony and only pay $100 fine and 100 hours probation? Do you know how many people would be dropping a dime for a deal like that? Also, why is this coming out now? Why not last year when she supposedly was involved with Colin Kaepernick?

      Nicki is in Belgium and traveling the world, and SR don't take checks from any celebs, she'll surely be dogging Nicki out on the next post. Ppl need to stop trying to make this dude happen, he's lame af

    • Diva_woman

      I doubt this girl "naturally" has a body. She clearly has a boob job. Nicki is a self made mutli-millionaire, beautiful, and has access to whoever she wants. Why is this unemployed man shouldered con-artist such a great catch? CNA liscense revoked? Really? You can get those in highschool. Yall kill me.

    • Ikcinkeem

      Every woman that Safaree came in contact with after Nicki he has tarnished their name and career. But this new girl might be good for him, because their both wearing the letter L on their forehead. LOOSERS.

    • Teachmeeatme

      A hustle is a hustle, to each it's own..... no one sin is greater than the next. You never dated someone with a criminal pass @ ALL? If that's what ma' did to get by that was her choice of hustle. Bad hustle but the one she choose. So you can't knock the hustle! She's pretty tho.

    • Ikcinkeem

      But stealing from old defenseless people at a nursing home. How can ya'll Safaree fans justify this kind of behavior. This girl Zashia has a 10 year old son. I guess she'll teach her son to steal from Safaree. LOL.

    • Queen B

      I had a dream about him last night....weird

    • rachel

      Level the playing field. What about Nicki's background? Was Nicki also a "criminal" or "felon" when Safaree was involved with her?

      Nicki's background should not be overlooked because she now has fortune and fame.

    • Ikcinkeem

      Her son gonna be in the slammer to, for stealing Safaree chains. Zashia and her son is plotting this move right now as we type. I hope he gets what he deserves from this convicted felon he's dating.

    • Teachmeeatme

      Most people don't listen/read with intent to understand. They listen/read with intent to reply! Fan? of what? of who? He actually does something? Ha! Never been a back my celebrity/socialite person. Unlike many, I don't know them to defend them. Not justifying the behavior @ ALL. I don't name call or she would have been labeled. BOL @ her son. Hey, to each it's own!

    • JennyJazzhands

      So? It's not like safaree is running for Congress or anything. I thought criminal records were applauded in his line of work.

    • Genia W-m

      At first I was going to say everybody deserves a second chance until I finished reading what she did. She totally didn't care about her patients by doing that. ID theft is so bad it should be a minimum of 10-15 yrs in prison with no time off for good behavior. That is a premeditated crime. I've heard of people losing their homes and jobs trying to prove who they are after an ID theft! Totally egregious!!! A crime of a thief who cares about no one but him/herself!!!!

      I have no patience for a damn thief. All these people committing ID theft, shoplifting, selling their kids for taxes, stealing taxes...they all belong in the same stolen boat. Then they're posting on FB asking for prayers. They'll never be happy by stealing.

    • Genia W-m

      Stupid? She needs to be in prison for the next 10 yrs!!!

    • Femme404

      Just watched Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. A+. If you like period pieces and/or spy movies this is one of the best.

    • Letmecommentbeforeicant

      Her body will forever be more natural than Nicki's as long as she doesn't run to the butt shots. And this girl may not be a multi-millionaire (most of us aren't), but she does work as a celebrity makeup artist/professional model and could have any man she wants. Safaree is with someone who publicly acknowledges him, so that's a come up in itself. And dang why did you have to do the CNAs like that ?.

    • Sassy24

      That wasn't a hustle if you think it was you are an idiot.


      Hahaha a lame for a lame

    • Diva_woman

      Fake is fake, let's just leave the body comments out. Just because boob jobs have been around longer and you think it's the same as being natural doesn't make it any more real than a fake ass. Nothing is better about this girl except the fact that nicki is the girl everyone loves to hate. Every occupation you listed for this chick is equal to every Instagram thot and no she couldn't get any man with that pedigree and her record to boot. "Make up artist/ professional model" ??? chile cheese who you fooling. She signed to wilhelmina models? lol

    • 1/8

      I would never knowingly date an ex-con/criminal or befriend one. I don't make a habit of bringing snakes into my home.

    • Letmecommentbeforeicant

      "Fake is Fake," but one job could be avoided by going to the gym, squatting, and building your butt AND thighs. Nicki took her shots to a whole new level, so now she's walking around like a bumble bee. And I like Nicki's music, but I'll never put her on some kind of pedestal to try and act like she's the best Safaree could do. Safaree dropped Nicki and at that moment she decides to acknowledge their long relationship? Nah, she was wrong for that, he supported her and helped build her career to what it is today. And some instagram models, celebrity makeup artists, strippers even, are pulling in more money than the typical professions. They get thousands to look pretty, rep a brand and party. Haven't you heard??? But, since I feel likeyou're a barb, you're going to go hard for Nicki no matter what (I was like that at one pt.) So, have a blessed Sunday.

    • Diva_woman

      Lol chile far from anyone's stan/barb or whatever I just live in reality unlike most ppl who let hate cloud their eyes. To act like this lady as an Instagram thot could have any man is ridiculous. And especially to compare what she does to a woman with an actual career, legitimate businesses and talent for a craft is unjustified. And I would venture to say Nicki gave Safaree a parting gift by giving credibility to their love and relationship to the public as a final send off. It's afforded him attention from fans, haters, blogs, interviews on nationally syndicated radio etc. Prior to her interviews their relationship was only known to die hard nicki minaj fans. People are allowed to break up and he broke up with her, their personal reasons shouldn't even be affecting folks like it has.

    • Justice for all

      Looking at her and Meek out together...she don't look real happy either. He seems to have more feelings than her.

    • Justice for all

      I agree

    • Justice for all

      My thing is...where has it been shown that the newbie had fake breast. To me she's a come up...real hair and still really body. Fake might be fake but I'd take fake breasts over fake breasts, teeth, butt, thighs, hips, personality, and voice. Nicki haven't money isn't everything especially if it's true that he's the reason why she has the money...can anybody say ghost write.
