Safaree’s ex-wife, Erica Mena, breaks down in tears in an episode of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta after learning that he would only be paying $4305 per month in child support. After Mena discovered the details of the child support settlement in the reality TV show, she could not contain her tears. The 35-year-old American actress voiced her complaints to someone on the phone while she cried over the new child support guidelines.
According to the guidelines, she has primary custody of both their kids, Safire and Legend, and Safaree would be required to pay $4,305 in child support each month. In tears, Mena said in the episode, “Are you fucking kidding me? Now all of this financial burden with my children is on me? That’s not fair … Like, he doesn’t have to pay nothing of it? Nothing?… This is fucked up.”
During the confessional, Mena’s commentary about the scene included advice for ladies to pay attention to men when they reveal their true selves. She indicated that she was too much of a “ride or die” to see the signs. “Ladies and gentlemen, learn your partner before you jump ahead and fall in love with the words and all of that stuff that make up this fairy tale because when no one is looking, that’s when everything just goes left,” she advised. As she continued, she described herself as a strong woman who believed in love. She added that she would be taking time to learn about the new woman she has become and love herself.
Yesterday, Safaree spoke out regarding the clip of Mena crying, which has been making the rounds on social media. Responding to Love and Hip Hop on Twitter, he denied that Mena had primary custody of their two children, even though she had said she did in the episode.
“Whoever runs this page stop spreading false information. We have joint custody what are you talking about? Losers,” he wrote.
After two years of marriage, Mena accused the American rapper of infidelity and filed for divorce in May 2021; it was finalised last September. Kimbella Matos became Safaree’s new love interest, and a sex tape allegedly showing the pair having sex was leaked in the summer.
