Sophia Body gets relationship help from an unlikely place on this week’s Love & Hip Hop: New York — her ex Safaree Samuels.
Sophia was Safaree’s first relationship after his split from Nikki Minaj but, as he says on the episode, it didn’t work out.
Safaree — who recently split with his girlfriend Dreamdoll — bumps into Sophia after she turns up for a DJ gig at a bar while he’s out on a “friend date” with co-star Juju, who recently also split with partner Cam’ron after more than a decade.
Safaree tells Sophia: “When I saw you walk in, I kind of just was like ‘oh s***’.” He then tells her how he had heard about his ex Dreamdoll throwing a smoothie in her face and he didn’t agree with it at all, and reveals that they have since broken up.
When he asks what is going on in her life, she says referring to Jaquae: “Well, I just recently broke up with my boyfriend too. But I was really in love with him though.”
Asked by Safaree whether she thinks they can figure it out, she says: “Well, I think he’s done. But I’ve tried to reach out — I’ve tried everything.”
Safaree says he has an idea and is willing to help. He says: “A mutual friend of ours, Carl, he’s a boxer and he has a training session. So, you know, you want to come? That would be the perfect place for you to pop up and let him know what’s good.”
Sophia says she’s nervous — but she’s up for for it. Later, the pair see each other for the first time since their break-up. What pans out remains to be seen…
