And she thankfully didn’t have that princess in an intersection!
Ciara and her husband, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, announced the birth of their baby girl on her Instagram. Where else are you going to announce you had a baby nowadays? All those janky printing companies where you can order up 3,000 pieces of cardstock adorned with clip art and your child’s name misspelled must be furious with Instagram for effing with their revenue.
TMZ says that Ciara, seen above last month looking very pregnant with the baby she made with Russell Wilson, was involved in a car accident this afternoon in Los Angeles. This situation sounds like something Lifetime is currently fighting the Hallmark channel over for the movie rights to.
We all know that when it comes to dressing for the Oscars, everyone takes it very seriously. They put on a tux or fancy gown that definitely didn’t come with a check attached to the garment bag. Most of the time the result is a one-way ticket to Zzzzzz town (see: a good 75% of the looks from last night). But then everyone gets to let loose at Vanity Fair’s annual Oscar afterparty and put on what they really want to wear (see: The Gold Standard). Like many people at the Vanity Fair party, Diane Kruger wasn’t at the Oscars and she showed up wearing that.
Almost two weeks ago, Ciara decided she was done fighting with her ex-fiancé Future and dropped her $15 million defamation lawsuit against him. As much as Ciara would love for Future to disappear from her life for good, that’s not going to happen. Ciara and Future share a two-year-old son Future Zahir. They’ve been fighting over who gets custody of Baby Future, but that fight is over now too.
Ciara and Future originally agreed to joint custody back when they first split up, but then he got mad at her for letting Baby Future spend time with Russell Wilson, which turned into a defamation lawsuit, which prompted Ciara to attempt to get sole custody as a “fuck you” to her ex. Sources tell TMZ that Ciara and Future have recently agreed on joint custody. However, Baby Future will spend most of the time with his mommy. So Ciara sort of gets that sole custody that she wanted before, but in a far less dirty way.
The reason Ciara will haev so much time with Baby Future is because Daddy Future is on the road a lot. The source states that when Future is back home in Atlanta, he’ll have “reasonable access” to Baby Future. Seeing the words “reasonable” made me nervous, because if there’s one word I would never use to describe Ciara and Future’s relationship with each other, it’s “reasonable.” But TMZ’s source seems to think this situation won’t turn ugly again. Apparently Ciara and Future just want to close this chapter and move on with their lives. I hope so! Ciara is about to be a mom again, and I’m sure the last thing she wants to do is deal with both a screaming baby and a screaming baby daddy.
When Ciara and Russell Wilson first started dating each other back in 2015, they made a big deal of letting everyone know that they were not going to do each other until after they said “I do.” Ciara and Russell are living that Jesus life, and part of their Jesus journey meant keeping their goodies in the jar as a way to get to know each other better. Ciara has no regrets and would go sexless again if she had the chance.
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.
