Safaree Samuels and Erica Mena revealed that they were going through a rough patch in their marriage with their recent posts on social media. Samuels shocked followers when he posted a picture with the caption “BACHELOR‼️ Ending 2020 right!!!” earlier this week. He had also tagged Divorce Court on the photo, insinuating that he was ready to end his marriage of just over a year. Now, he is apologizing for doing such a thing.

In an Instagram post, Samuels posted an apology to Mena for his actions.

“A man is nothing without his family,” Samuels captioned a photo of him working out. “I’m not a bachelor & I love my wife I would never disrespect the mother of my child or wife. Sorry for being childish & Salute to all the real men out there.”

He also changed the caption of his photo from declaring his bachelor status to “10:30 am Friday ‼️‼️ Word premiere” to promote the release of his single, “Credit.”

Samuels Suggested That He Blocked Mena From Calling Him

Along with posting that he would be ending 2020 as a bachelor, Samuels also vented his anger via Twitter. One of his posts suggested that he blocked his wife.

“I think the block feature on the iPhone is its best feature,” he tweeted. “It brings such peace & serenity. Great way to keep jack a**** away. Thank you Steve Jobs!”

He also posted cryptic tweets like “pathetic” and “biggest regret,” which followers believed were about his wife.

Mena responded with her own tweet.

“No cocky s***, ain’t too many like me,” she wrote. “No man could ever stop me!!!!!!!”

She added:  “Scorpio stings are the most beautiful pain.”

Mena and Samuels had celebrated their first wedding anniversary on October 7, 2020.
