Meek Mill is finally responding to rumors that he steal Nicki Minaj from her ex-boyfriend of 12 years Safaree Samuels.

The Philly rapper is also responding to reports that he and Nicki had Safaree banned from BET Awards red carpet.

Speaking with Sway’s Universe last week while doing his promotional run for his new album Dream Worth More Than Money, Meek opened up about the rumors that he took Nicki from her ex.

But he said he never did that he merely told her to make the decision on her own.

“Do what’s best for you, really,” Milly said he told his now girlfriend. “I’m not no hater. Do what’s best for you. Whatever you feel in your heart. ‘Cause I don’t want to be in the middle of something and that ain’t how you really feel… I ain’t never really have plans of Nicki Minaj being in my future and helping me be successful. I already thought I was gonna be successful.”

The “Dream Chaser” rapper also opened up about the controversy surrounding Safaree being banned from the BET Awards red carpet.

 “I don’t think he was invited,” Meek Mill said while explaining that he didn’t have BET banned his girlfriend estrange ex.

“So Bet told my publicist im “Banned” from Bet Red carpet, hmmm wonder why.. dnt recall a situation occuring with them but hey #itiswhatitis,” Safaree wrote on his Twitter timeline.

Nicki Minaj and Safaree Samuels dated for 12 years before their bitter split last year. Meek Mill was blamed for being the reason they split over some cheating allegations.
