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.
I know Lady Gaga’s thing right now is hats, specifically that pink one that’s practically the official mascot of her Joanne promotional tour. So I shouldn’t have been surprised that she showed up to the American Music Awards last night in her biggest, stiffest-brimmed hat. It was nice of her to switch out that pink hat for the evening. I’m sure it was starting to get all limp from all the sweaty forehead foundation it was no doubt collecting and could use a good soak before the Grammys in February. Sorry AMAs, but you get the backup hat.
After dropping little hints, like doing the classic hand-over-bump pose at an event last week, Ciara has gone ahead and confirmed what everyone already assumed. That her husband of three months Russell Wilson had sprayed her reproductive goodies with his Jesus-loving sperm and made a baby with her. Ciara took a break from celebrating her 31st birthday last night to announce on Instagram that she was going to be a mom for the second time. That Lifetouch-looking pregnancy portrait you see above was accompanied by the following caption:
“On this special Birthday I received an abundance of love from friends and family…and I’m excited to Finally share one of the Greatest Gifts of All that God could give….👶🏽🍼💃🏽☺️❤️”
Russell Wilson posted the same picture but changed his caption to: “The Greatest Blessing of All. Forever Grateful. #BabyWilsonOnTheWay.” This will be 27-year-old Russell’s first kid. Ciara has a two-year-old son, Future Zahir, that she made with (and is currently caught in the middle of a messy lawsuit fight with) her ex-fiancé Future. Why do I get the feeling that Future’s baby shower gift to Russell will be a copy of What To Expect When Your Baby Mama Sues You and Tries To Get Sole Custody of Your Kid.
I’m a little surprised Ciara got knocked up with Russell’s baby so quickly. Ciara and Russell finally got to have sex a little over three months ago after being abstinent for a long-ass time. Russell’s sperm hadn’t been inside a lady for so long that I expected it was going to take at least six months of acting like easily-distracted tourists before one of them stopped sightseeing around Ciara’s business and made its way to the egg.
Single-named entertainers and one-time couple Ciara and Future have been tip-toeing further and further away from their dirty defamation fight ever since they started it back in February. Ciara has taken the latest step to end the drama. However, it doesn’t really have anything to do with wanting to play nice.
