Future and Ciara, seen above long before they sued each other for millions of dollars and dragged each other on social media, appeared to have come one step closer to ending their dramatic messy feud.
Back in February, Ciara slapped her former fiancé and father of her 2-year-old son Future Zahir with a $15 million defamation lawsuit. Ciara claimed Future damaged her reputation by saying she was a crappy mom. Future slapped back with a counter-suit, claiming you can’t ruin the career of someone who doesn’t have a career anymore. Last month, Future was awarded shared custody of Future Jr. It sounds like spending more time with their kid has calmed his thirst for revenge against Future Jr.’s mommy, because TMZ says that he’s dropped his counter-suit.
According to sources close to Future, who I’m guessing are his close friends Past and Present (I deserve all the groans for that one), he’s afraid that if he pursues that counter-suit, Ciara will get revenge by taking him back to court, which could mess up their current custody agreement. Future is really happy that he gets to spend more time with their son, so he decided to stop poking at the bee’s nest and drop his lawsuit. Ciara, however, is still suing Future for $15 million.
I don’t have kids, so I can’t say for sure if spending more time with them is better than trying to destroy your ex-fiancée in court. But I have spent three days in jury duty selection before. The memory of being stuck in a boring-ass court room watching five sweaty adults fight over the last uncompleted Sudoku puzzle still haunts me. So personally, I too would take changing poopy training pants and watching Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood till I saw cartoon tigers in my nightmares. I think you chose wisely, Future.
