Ciara Files $15 Million Defamation Lawsuit Against Future
Ciara is taking Future to court. The “Body Party” singer has filed a $15 million lawsuit against her ex, the father of their child, due to unflattering comments he made about her in public.
According to TMZ, the defamation lawsuit for slander and libel mentions an interview where the Georgia rapper claims Ciara uses their son for “publicity stunts” with her new beau, Seattle Seahawks star Russell Wilson. In the suit, she also brings up a since-deleted tweet where Future calls her a “bitch” with “control problems.” The singer has asked that all negative tweets be removed.
Another part of their rift involves custody. Hendrix has tweeted that he has to “go through lawyers” to see their son, baby Future. According to Ciara, the rapper has seen their son at least 19 times, sometimes for several days, since December 2014. She is now asking that Future be banned from airing out their private matters online.
Ciara and Future called off their engagement in 2014, months after their son, Future Zahir Wilburn, was born. Since then, they’ve gone back and forth over matters concerning custody and co-parenting.
