Love and Hip Hop star Safaree Samuels implied that he is divorcing his wife Erica Mena on Instagram after the couple exchanged cryptic posts on Twitter.
“Bachelor!! Ending 2020 right!!,” he wrote on his Instagram caption and tagged divorce court on the photo. He later changed the caption to a premiere date for an upcoming drop.

“A man is nothing without his family,” Safaree wrote on Instagram before backtracking.
“I’m 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.”
