Nicki Minaj's ex-boyfriend is reportedly still devastated following their split in October.

Safaree Samuels, who dated the 'Anaconda' hitmaker for 12 years, is said to be an emotional wreck and friends are allegedly concerned for his welfare.

A source claimed that he has talked openly about suicide and has isolated himself from many of his friends, according to gossip website TMZ.com.

But Safaree refuses to reach out to Nicki, 32, because he believes she's now dating Meek Mill, even though she insists their relationship is ''platonic.''

His friends have urged him to seek help and find a new therapist.

Earlier this week, Nicki admitted she still misses Safaree.

Opening up about their split, she told New York radio station Power 105.1's the 'Angie Martinez Show' on Wednesday (17.12.14): ''My relationship was based off of love, 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.

''I don't think people realise it's not just a relationship or breakup. That was a humongous part of my life. I know because of the world we live in, that relationships are not sacred anymore or important. But this is different.

''It's something that I am dealing with publicly... and it's not easy. I'm also not gonna joke about it or try to disrespect him and try to act like he didn't mean the world to me and still doesn't mean the world to me. I'm not going to be corny about it either. I'm just figuring it out.''
