Ciara Slaps Ex-Fiance Future with Defamation Lawsuit
Singer Ciara has launched a $15 million defamation lawsuit against her ex-fiance Future. Last month, the rapper took to Twitter to blast Ciara and accuse her of preventing him from seeing their son, who is also named Future.
“This b**ch got control problems…” he fumed. “I gotta go through lawyers to see babyfuture… the f**kery for 15k ($15,000) a month. I just want babyfuture that’s all. I been silent for a year & a half… I ran outta patience,” he continued. Ciara never responded to Future’s rant, but she subsequently filed the lawsuit last month in a Georgia court, accusing him of knowingly making the false and defamatory statements. The 30-year-old, who is now dating Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, stated that Future started the feud because he wanted to stir up publicity for his business projects, including his upcoming album, Evol, and tour. She also accused him of using her relationship with Wilson to further promote his work. Ciara claims Future is trying to ruin her reputation professionally and his comments have negatively affected her business relationships, according to The Jasmine Brand. She also stated Future has yet to pay her $15,000-a-month in child support and has only seen his son around 19 times since his birth in May 2014, despite the fact she has gone out of her way to arrange meetings. Ciara claimed she has contacted Future’s legal team to demand a retraction and an apology, but they never responded. In addition to the $15 million, she is also seeking an injunction to prevent her ex from speaking about their son in public and $250,000 in lawyers fees. Future has yet to respond to the lawsuit. The former couple was engaged from October 2013 to August 2014.
