When I initially wrote that headline too quickly, my brain came up with “Ciara Dropped Her Defamation Lawsuit Against The Future.” And her dropping THAT lawsuit made me protest inside because if there’s any future that deserves a lawsuit, it’s this one. But no, we’re talking about one dude.
Ciara had a defamation suit going against hip-hop artist Future, but dropped part of it back in October. She was still gunning for $15 million, though, by continuing to seek damages while claiming he cast her in a “false light.” Future reportedly publicly shamed her when he did a radio interview (complete with follow-up tweets) where he claimed she wasn’t a good mom to their 2-year-old son, Future Zahir.
But now she’s dropped the lawsuit completely, according to TMZ.
According to the docs, the case has been dismissed “with prejudice” … meaning she can’t refile it.
Our sources say Future didn’t pay her a penny in return for the dismissal. But based on all the evidence, it seems almost certain they have also reached agreement on custody of 2-year-old baby Future.
Perhaps getting knocked up has softened her towards her ex? Ciara has a new husband, NFL quarterback and former Christian blue balls sufferer Russell Wilson, and a baby on the way. Maybe dropping the lawsuit’s not about getting over the need for vengeance on your ex. Who has time to gouge him for cash when you’re busy craving cream cheese and grape jelly sandwiches and trying not to kill all of the people asking you “how are you feeling?” every hour of the day? Many of my female friends have birthed babies. I’ve learned what aggravates them.
