Roommates, after a whirlwind romance that’s seen lavish celebrations, social media bickering, and two pregnancies, Erica Mena and Safaree are calling it quits. Erica has reportedly filed for divorce from Safaree, according to court documents obtained by TMZ. The news comes less than two years after the pair tied the knot in 2019.
The divorce documents were filed last week Friday at the Fayette County Superior Court in Georgia. Erica is reportedly requesting “primary physical custody” of their daughter Safire, who is now one year old. However, the “Love & Hip Hop” breakout star has reportedly agreed to share joint legal custody of Safire with Safaree.
In addition to custody, the documents also touched on the couple’s living and finances. Erica is reportedly seeking to retain “exclusive use” of the couple’s home. As you may remember, we recently reported that Erica and Safaree’s home was burglarized. Some of their possessions were stolen, including Safaree’s custom chain that prominently features a pendant of his daughter’s face. The couple took to social media to announce the break-in and to offer a $20,000 cash award to anyone offering information that could lead to arrests.
Erica has also reportedly requested child support payments from Safaree. It’s unclear whether the payments will apply to both Safire and their unborn child. In early May, the couple announced their second pregnancy together via maternity shoot photos. The images made their viral rounds at the time, given that Erica’s pregnancy was not publicly known information prior to. In one of her posts, Erica spoke on God, marriage, and family in the caption.
“Marriage- It’s not easy at all,” Erica wrote. “But having a family of your very own makes up for it all. God, I thank you for the protection and all the consistent blessings. I been through way too much to not be as grateful as I truly am.”
