Safaree Samuels and Erica Mena’s marriage appears to be in a very rocky place. Two weeks ago, the couple stopped following each other on Instagram, and Erica changed her name on the social media platform from “Erica Mena Samuels” to just “Erica Mena.”
But the couple seemed to have gotten through that rough patch – and last week, it appeared that they were back together. They posted this video, showing themselves as a happy couple.
But now a new image showing Erica with a busted lip is causing people to speculate whether there could have been domestic violence going on in their home.
Safaree came out quickly to dispel the rumors. He says Erica’s lip was busted because she was “lit” and accidentally hurt herself. As of now, MTO News has no reason to believe that anything happened between them- other than what Safaree says.

Erica also has had a dust up with a former lover. She was caught on camera beating up her baby’s father in Miami although the incident occurred nearly a decade ago:
