Despite just announcing that she is pregnant with her second child, “Love & Hip Hop’s” Erica Mena is calling quits on her marriage to husband Safaree Samuels. The two have been married for less than two years but Mena believes that their marriage is “irretrievably broken.” In documents obtained by Hollywood Life, the 33-year-old has essentially had enough of her husband and their marriage. The couple had a fast-moving relationship that went from hooking up to pregnant to engaged to quickly married.
Mena Wants Custody Of Their Daughter
Mena is asking for primary custody of the daughter they share together Safire. After the second child is born, Mena wants to share joint legal custody of both of their children “as well as have final decision-making authority over legal custody matters.” As for other requests Mena is asking for, she wants child support and the ability to maintain and have “exclusive use” to the primary home that she is currently sharing with her soon-to-be ex-husband. The documents also revealed that Mena and Samuels are legally separated.
Is This Just A Rouse For Social Media?
Fans are hesitant to believe that the couple is breaking up for good this time because they frequently fight over social media and get back together. The last alleged blowout and breakup was about three months ago when Samuels tweeted that he was “walking away” from his marriage and even called the entire thing a “big mistake”. Samuels has shaded his wife before this as well but the difference this time is that Mena clapped back, firing shots and showing just how little Samuels cared about his own daughter.
Wendy Williams Got Involved
“Since you always run to social media like a little girl I might as well join in. I absolutely agree with you on this. You are the most selfish, vain, and inconsiderate person. And not just with me but your only daughter!” she wrote.
The couple quickly made up after that and even as recently as a few weeks ago, Mena was throwing shots at Wendy Williams after she spoke about the couple’s marriage during a segment on her show. The host stated that the couple needed to “grow up” and shaded their marriage.
The Calm Before The Storm
Mena threatened the talk show host on social media for the world to see. “@WendyWilliams At this point let’s link up so I can beat your ass,” she tweeted after the episode aired.
Since the disagreement, the couple has been calm but that has been revealed to be the calm before the storm as no one was expecting a divorce announcement from this couple any time soon. Not just because they are still essentially newlyweds, but also because they just announced a pregnancy, and they always fight and makeup. Fans will have to wait and see how this one plays out.
