The American Music Awards aired on CBS last night in order for you to have something to talk about with your weird cousin Trisha over Thanksgiving weekend. The AMA’s are the perfect empty vessel in which to hold your familial conversational obligations. That said, a few attendees did come to slay. Like Hailee Steinfeld, who, thanks to that leather bra and sharp shoulder pad situation, is seen giving you The Bodyguard starring a young Joan Crawford.
Yesterday was Mother’s Day, the day when the internet comes together and threatens to crash Instagram’s servers by mass-uploading pictures of moms with captions about how they’re the best in the world. One popular theme yesterday was for dads to thank the mothers of their children. Russell Wilson Instagrammed a message to Ciara on her first Mother’s Day with their daughter Sienna Princess, which included a line about how he’s so grateful to get to raise “our” kids together. That “our” didn’t sit well with people.
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.
