Erica Mena ex-boyfriend & breakup; Meet King Conde’s father, Raul Conde
The famous television personality was in a relationship with Raul Conde. The rapper is a member of a group named “Terror Squad” and the director of many music videos. However, the couple never had the perfect love life despite being married and having a child.
The two were mostly known for a heck of an abusive relationship. But keeping that aside, the couple stayed together for almost a decade. Erica and Raul started dating since 2004 while breaking up back in 2016.
Mena said that Raul was physically abusive, which was the only reason for their breakup. But she was also in love with the man, so she decided to adapt to his behavior whatsoever.
When things got totally out of control, Erica got tired, and she left the man while having the full custody of their son after the split. In the meantime, the couple made amends for the sake of their son as they finally stop an end to this war. However, they have not spent much time together despite the conflict being under wraps.
Erica Mena’s violent brawl with Raul Conde
There was a time when the couple had a violent brawl in the streets of Miami. Erica and Raul fought one another in front of the public mass, which was quite a shocker at the time.
As seen in the video, they had some nasty spats at each other while saying some disturbing things as well. From what it looks, Raul was neither a good dad nor a responsible partner.
Erica was vigorously punching and kicking Raul Conde, which happened in front of a studio. The television star was chasing Raul while we witnessed a violent and aggressive side of Mena.
Erica Mena’s engaged to a new boyfriend, Safaree Samuels
Erica Mena is among the very few who found two men to put a ring on her finger. Despite being in her early thirties, she is very popular for her dating affairs and love life.
Erica and Safaree started dating from 2018. Safaree is also a famous rapper who dated Nicki Minaj in previous times. The couple got engaged stylishly.
We could see that Safaree made some fascinating preparations while he proposed Erica. He designed the ring and selected the center stone himself. Besides, he sneaked to get Erica’s finger size while sleeping to ensure the best proposal in her life.
Nevertheless, she showed off the expensive ring on her Instagram. The 14-carat platinum ring costs around $175,000.

The rumors about Erica Mena’s pregnancy had spread for a long time. She continued denying the news about her pregnancy with Safaree Samuels.
Now, it’s confirmed that the pair are expecting a child together for real this time. They are expecting a new baby girl in the coming weeks.
Safaree is freaking out, for he is going to have his first baby. He also said, “I’m in shock. I’m in disbelief. It’s very surreal to me. I don’t know what to do, but I know I’m going to be great at what I do because I’m great at everything.”
Its baby number two for Erica, who is expecting a baby girl with Safaree. No wonder what they would name their bouncing bundle of joy.
On the other hand, what will King think of his sibling, sister? Well, there are many questions still to be answered.
