She’s also indicated she wants child support, plus … exclusive use of the home they currently share,” TMZ writes.  

Earlier this year, Safaree took to social media to announce that he was done with married life and ready to call it quits with Erica. In the tweet, he said, “I mean this from the bottom of my heart getting married was 1 of my BIGGEST mistakes,” and added, “and it will never happen again. I’m walking away before I end up in jail over some dumb s**t. Nobody is worth my freedom.”

Mena replied, “Since you always run to social media like a little girl I might as well join in. I absolutely agree with you on this You are the most selfish, vain and inconsiderate person. And not just with me but your only daughter.”

In a follow-up tweet, Erica shared, “Out of RESPECT for my daughter and to honor my growth as a woman. I’m going to get back to doing what I do best. Make money and be only about my business. Entertaining social media with my issues isn’t my thing.” She concluded with, “Don’t let this Scorpio sting.” 

Most recently, Mena posted a video from a doctor’s visit where she and Safire listened to an ultrasound of her unborn child. A follower commented about being “so excited” for Mena and that she hopes the reality TV star “had more kids in the future.” Erica responded, “Absolutely never getting pregnant again. Lol It’s not easy doing it alone girl.”
