If one of our exes ever came for us publicly, particularly by releasing a terrible song about us, we can't say we'd handle it with as much finesse as Nicki Minaj did.

Her former boyfriend, Safaree Samuels, recently made headlines when he released a song called "Love the Most" about Nicki's and his not-so-public relationship of 12 years. As hard as he tried to make Nicki look bad in the form of some mediocre lyrics (In our pictures yeah we're smiling / but inside I'm feeling sad"), the situation ultimately did more harm to Samuels. He came out of it looking like a sad, bitter mess whose rap career never took off for a clear reason: He's not very good.

Nicki must have heard about the track, because she responded with a series of tweets that successfully shut Samuels down without resorting to low-blows, for the most part. While most of the tweets have since been deleted, they were once on the Internet — which means someone, somewhere, saved them immediately. Nicki reportedly wrote (via Fader), "Don't make me do this. Lesson: don't cheat on a loyal woman. God will punish u. When he does, tell people the truth. The truth may set u free. Love. Always. Took a person with me to fame & fortune. These dudes leave their girl in the hood. Tell ppl the truth or you will b doomed."

She continued, "Enough with the pity party. Just live your life. I'm happy today not b/c of meek. But b/c i know Im a good person. Don't hate u. Will always love u. I forgive u. It's time to move on."

Then she wrote about how much she loves Meek Mill, which both dispelled those break-up rumors and twisted the metaphorical knife into Samuels' chest even further. Nice.
