Samuels himself confirmed in January that he and his fiancée set their wedding date but did not reveal any other details about when it would take place.

Mena and Samuels, ex-boyfriend of mega rap star Nicki Minaj, publicly announced they were dating in November 2018 after they were spotted together at a Jazz-Nets game at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.

A month later in December, the “Can’t Lie” rapper proposed to his fiancée on Christmas Eve at her home in Atlanta. He reportedly spent $175,000 on Mena’s 14-carat platinum engagement ring.

He also told fans that he’s been in love with his fiancée since they starred on VH1’s reality series “Scared Famous” in 2017.

“I use to say so many things jokingly not knowing it would become real life. I can’t wait for you to be my wife,” he wrote on Instagram in January. “I am so in love with you.”
