A couple of years ago, Future and Ciara were engaged to each other, and they were maybe the most beautiful celebrity couple on the face of the earth. It didn’t last. Future and Ciara went through a nasty breakup in 2014, but not before welcoming a baby boy that they named Future. These days, Ciara is dating Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, and Future is on a hall-of-fame career run, in which he’s released seven full-lengths in the last year-and-a-half, all of them depicting him as a soul-numbed hedonist. All this time, he’s been talking shit about Ciara, and this might cost him.
TMZ reports that Ciara is suing Future for slander and libel, to the tune of $15 million. She’s citing a number of comments that Future has made, saying (quite reasonably, honestly) that they were made out of malice. There was, for instance, a radio interview in which Future talks about a paparazzi photo of Wilson pushing the baby Future in a stroller, in which Future said, “She probably set [Wilson] up. You letting them catch that photo. Leave my son out of all the publicity stunts.” And there was also a since-deleted Twitter rant, in which Future said things like, “This bitch got control problems… I gotta go through lawyers to see baby future… the fuckery for 15k a month.”
In the lawsuit, Ciara claims that she’s made a lot of time for Future to see his son, giving him 19 visitations, some for several days, since December 2014. She wanted Future to delete his tweets, which he’s already done, and she wants him blocked from talking about private matters, regarding her son, in public.
