During his time on the show, Safaree served as comic relief quite often. He also romanced Nikki Muddarris. It seems that he just can't say no to women with that name.

After splitting from Nikki, Safaree decided to head back to New York.

He swapped out "Love & Hip Hop [VIDEO]" shows and joined the cast of "LHHNY" Season 8. Ever since, he's been romantically linked first with DreamDoll and after that, he was said to be dating Juju. One thing is for sure, Safaree seems to have found his step with the New York crowd.

How much is Safaree worth?

Despite all that he's done in both music and reality TV, not to mention several endorsements, Safaree Samuels' net worth is still estimated to be around $2 million according to Celebrity Net Worth. That number seems to be based on information gathered in 2017, though. That wouldn't take into account his recent work on "LHHNY" or his recently released songs. Even still, $2 million is a long ways off from his former girlfriend, Nicki Minaj who has a reported net worth of $70 million.

Safaree Samuels is currently one of the most talked about stars of "Love & Hip Hop New York." Just a day before the "LHHNY" Season 8 finale aired, a shocking nude video was leaked that had everyone talking about Safaree.

According to Hollywood Life, Nicki Minaj may think he leaked the video himself for attention.

Whether that is the case or not, the explicit video is still being talked about and he's definitely getting a lot of attention from it. So much so that Safaree moved up the release date for his new song, "Hunnid," and announced that the track would drop on Wednesday to take advantage of this recent wave of publicity.

Even with Season 8 of "LHHNY" coming to an end, we surely haven't heard the end of Safaree Samuels. He's actually become more famous since his split with Nicki Minaj and will likely be back on VH1 again next season.
