This is getting worse and worse.
Ciara and Future have had a pretty rough year, and their battle isn’t even close to being over. The formerly engaged couple have been hitting each other with low blows ever since their breakup, and, this year, it was taken into the courtroom. After Future fought for, and eventually earned, joint custody of their son, baby Future, CiCi has been going hard with her defamation lawsuit against him. Apparently, the legal woes have gotten so bad for the singer, it might have cost her a major deal.
Ciara filed a defamation lawsuit against her ex, Future
Earlier this year, CiCi took Future to court over tweets he made about her, where he referred to her as a “bi**h.” She is now suing him for $15 million, and is demanding that he ceases mentioning her name while using any platform. The tweets read, “I been silent for a year & a half..I ran outta patience. This bi**h got control problems. I gotta go through lawyers to see baby future…the f**kery for 15k a month.”
She claims his comments cost her a deal
The comments that Future made on Twitter last year could have done some real damage to Ciara’s career. She claims in her lawsuit that Future painting her as controlling, and calling her a b**ch made her lose out on a $500,000 deal with a cosmetics company.
Future previously filed a counter lawsuit
The rapper tried to fire back at Ciara in court, as he claimed that her defamation lawsuit was void. He believes that the alleged slander would do nothing to deteriorate her career, being that she doesn’t have a strong following anymore. He eventually asked a judge to dismiss the case.
