"If I wasn't a rapper, we would have children, be married, and be living happily ever after."

Nicki Minaj had tears in her eyes as she discussed the break-up of her relationship with long time partner Safaree Samuels, who was her boyfriend for 12 years. 

The 'Anaconda' rapper spoke openly and honestly about the difficulties that came with dating someone while juggling a career in the limelight, admitting that if she wasn't famous she would most probably be married to Samuels with children and "living happily ever after" right now.

Nicki, who had been in the relationship ever since she found fame, poured her heart out about what life is going to be like without him.

"My relationship was based off of love," she told Angie Martinez on Power 105.1. "And there still is nothing but love there. This is not some person I picked up off the street. This is somebody I grew up with. Like I don't even know how I'm gonna function without that person in my life. I've never lived my life as a famous person without him."
