Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj have both debunked rumors that they prevented Nicki's ex, Safaree Samuels from walking the red carpet at the BET Awards 2015 despite the hype-man implying his ex GF banned him from the carpet.

In a chat with Sway Calloway the 'Bad for You'' rapper said:

''I don’t get people banned; that’s like calling the cops. We don’t call the cops on people and sh-t like that. What we gotta get him banned from the BET Awards for? He ain’t never been at the BET Awards by himself. I don’t even think he was invited. I don’t really be liking those accusations though. She asked me like, ‘He said I said it. You did it?’ I was like, ‘No.’ I don’t get people banned. I be wanting to see everybody. I don’t never try to get people away from me. People try to get away from me.''

Meek also had something to say about Samuels speaking out about his breakup with Nicki: ''That ain’t no sh-t you do to no girl that been taking care of you and looking out for you.''

There has been plenty of talk regarding an overlap between Nicki’s relationship with Samuels and her new romance with Meek. But according to the lyricist, their relationship was pretty much a done deal when he started kicking it with her.

Apparently, he feels that Samuels didn’t fight hard enough to save the relationship, which is why it ended.
