Safaree Samuels - who dated the 'Anaconda' hitmaker for 14 years before she dumped him last year - has had a bed of roses inked over his final body art tribute to her.

The 34-year-old rapper fuelled rumours he'd split from the 32-year-old star in 2014 after he replaced etchings of her face and name on his chest with a rose and locket and key design.

And he now appears to have put their relationship behind him for good as a tattoo artist posted before and after shots of Safaree's forearm on his Instagram account.

Alongside a split image of a Marilyn Monroe-inspired portrait of Nicki and a rose tattoo design, iAmCompton wrote: "and u think yo job is hard. Just finish this piece for @iamsafaree #SorryNicki #itsJustBusiness #inkArtMusic (sic)"

The Hoodstars rapper's decision to permanently erase his ex-girlfriend and former bandmate from his life comes after she reportedly dumped new boyfriend and rumoured fiancé Meek Mill for badmouthing both him and Drake.

A source said previously: "It's complicated. I think they took their relationship too far, too fast."

And although Nicki and Meek are currently on tour together, having appeared at Dubai nightclub People By Crystal last night (01.09.15), they're said to be putting on a brave face for their fans.

The source added: "The two plan on fulfilling the rest of their tour obligations together."
