More so, she also has a good following on other platforms including TikTok. She has had some endorsement deals to promote products and services and she also made it known that she is into the hosting of events.
Is She The New Girlfriend Of Safree?
Details surrounding Kimbella as the Girlfriend of Safaree only began to emerge after his ex-wife, Erica Mena made it known that they were no longer together in 2021. She shared a steamy picture of herself sharing a passionate kiss with Amina Buddafly and after she was attacked by fans, she revealed that she was single.
Before then, there were allegations that Safaree had sent a bouquet of roses to another woman and he was later seen out with the Instagram model, Kimbella Matos. To make everything clear to those in doubt, Matos shared a picture on her Instagram, showing a bunch of roses with the caption, “he loves it here. S. Thank you..” This seemed to add up to followers who believed that “S” meant Safaree.
Kimbella Matos and Erica Mena got into another unfriendly exchange on social media recently when Erica blasted Safaree Samuels for talking crazy about her with his prosti****. Kimbella took a shot back at her, stating that she was not going to mention her stupid uneducated a** because they were not of the same level mentally.
Erica again claimed that Kimbella had been selling her body since she was 16 years old.
Did Kimbella Cause The Divorce Between Erica and Safaree?
While it is not clear if Matos is behind the end of Safaree’s marriage to Erica, it is known that their divorce came at almost the same time that she came to the scene.
Erica and Safaree first met in 2017 on the VH1 series, Scared Famous before they joined Love & Hip Hop: New York. They started dating in 2018 and after only a month, they were engaged. In 2019, they got married at an event at the Legacy Castle in New Jersey.
By February 2020, they had their first child a daughter, Safire Majesty Samuels, and then in June 2021, they welcomed their son, Legend Brian Samuels. Even before the birth of their son, Erica had filed for a divorce from her husband.
