New developments have surfaced in the armed robbery case involving Safaree Samuels. According to TMZ, Samuels may have known one the suspects who committed the robbery against him.
Apparently, Samuels took a photo with one the alleged suspects, Shawn Harewood, with his then ex-girlfriend, Nicki Minaj, back in 2011 or 2012. TMZ is reporting that Samuels have known Harewood since he was 14 years old but haven’t spoken to him since he broke up with Minaj.
As we have previously reported, Harewood and another man, Jonathan Ricketts, were apprehended hours after the alleged armed robbery this week. The two men were captured on foot after engaging police in a car chase from New Jersey to New York.
Samuels appeared on the The Angie Martinez Show earlier this week and revealed that he was robbed hours before his appearance. “A couple hours ago, I just got robbed. Two dudes with guns just ran up on me, me face down on the floor with a gun to my head," he said. "They just took everything.”
Samuels's attorney, James Leonard Jr., told TMZ that it wasn't a random attack and that his client was lucky to escape unhurt. The rapper reportedly had $183,000 in cash and jewelry stolen from him during the robbery.
Samuels recently went on Twitter to address some the people who felt that what happened to him was a laughing matter. Read his tweets below.
