Back in February, sometime singer/current engaged person Ciara (seen moments before she redefined the word petty by refusing to say her ex’s name while announcing the Billboard nominees in the picture above) whipped a defamation lawsuit at the father of her baby and former fiance, Future. Ciara claimed Future was dragging her name through the mud and publicly accusing her of being a shitty mom to their almost 2-year-old son Future Zahir, and was seeking $15 million. The Jasmine Brand (via TMZ) says Future has responded to Ciara’s lawsuit with a lawsuit of his own. How very daytime soap opera of you, Future.
Future is counter-suing Ciara, claiming that there’s no way he could have damaged her reputation or career because she doesn’t exactly have one anymore. Future refers to Ciara’s last album, Jackie, as a flop, which it sort of was, and brings up the fact that Ciara hasn’t won many awards in the past couple years. Basically what Future is implying is that the only way you could use “hot” in the same sentence as Ciara’s name would be if you were telling the story about a stolen car that had a copy of Goodies in the CD player. He also sort of accuses Ciara of suing him for publicity. Ciara? Publicity? The woman who got engaged on Instagram would never!
Future isn’t asking for nearly as much as Ciara is. He just wants his legal fees paid for and for her to stop talking shit about him. I know the desire for a melodramatic type to go off on their ex after a couple glasses of wine is strong, but maybe Ciara’s goodies will help distract her the next time she wants to publicly slap at Future. “Girl! Hey! Look down here! Remember how we’re one step closer to finally riding on Russell Wilson’s dick? That’s right, put down your phone and go to your happy place, girl.”
