AceShowbiz - It's only been weeks after Safaree Samuels proposed to Erica Mena. However, a new report suggests that the newly-engaged couple is already taking their relationship to the next level by getting married this week.
Multiple sources who are close to Erica claim to MTO News that the "Love & Hip Hop" co-stars got "legally" married in Atlanta this week. The sources further add that Safare and rumored wife Erica filed their paperwork at the Fulton County court, making their marriage official.
"They are married now legally, but they will be having a full ceremony later on this year," explain the insiders.
Further fueling the marriage rumors, Erica has changed her display name on Instagram. She's now wearing Safaree's last name as her account introduces her as Erica Mena Samuels.
While it's surely great news for the couple, people seemingly can't help but get suspicious of the rush action. "A lot of people [at 'Love & Hip Hop'] believed they were getting married as a scam, so that they could get a show out of it," a source tells the site. "To prove to the producers that their marriage was real, they made it legal."
It remains to be seen whether or not the marriage is real, or if the two are getting married. The couple got engaged after Safaree popped the question at her house in Atlanta during the Christmas Eve. In a dimlit room that was filled with 200 rose petals and 200 candles, Erica, who looked stunning in a pretty white gown, was seen walking toward Safaree who was waiting in other side of the room.
Rumor has it, Erica was pregnant with Safaree's baby which may explain the whirlwind engagement and marriage. In addition, it was said that the newly-engaged couple was in negotiations for "Love & Hip Hop" spin-off series on VH1. Reported to start filming this spring, the show is being pitched as a "pregnancy show."
Erica, however, took to her social media account to end them once and for all. In a video that saw her lying on the bed, she could be heard giggling and saying, "I'm not pregnant, I'm sorry."
