Future Countersues Ciara, Says She’s A Washed Up Singer
Rucuss staffApril 13, 2016
Future has filed a countersuit against his ex-fiancee Ciara.
Ciara, who shares a 21-month old son with Future, sued the Atlanta rapper earlier this year for $15 million for defamation. She claims she’s never withheld their son nor has she been paid $15,000 a month in child support. She wants him to stop talking negativity about her on social media.
TheJasmineBrand.com exclusively reports that Future countersued Ciara, claiming she is a” washed-up singer” whose career is failing and her purpose for suing him was to generate publicity for her lackluster album sales.
This latest news comes just days after Ciara refused to say Future’s name while announcing nominees for best rap artist of the Billboard Music Awards on the set of Good Morning America.
The Jasmine Brand reports:
The rapper also accuses Ciara of lying about his tweet referencing the $15k child support. He says she knows that’s actually what SHE is seeking and she told him she would sue him for $20k in support if he didn’t pay her the $15k a month she wanted. He says none of his social media posts were false or defamatory and there was no malice involved but rather the reaction of a father who wanted to see his son more frequently and on a more reasonable basis — all of which is protected by freedom of speech.
Future then goes for the jugular. He admits that both work in the entertainment industry but he says Ciara does not currently have a successful [single]. He states if that statement was made several years ago it would have been accurate to state, since she had a successful career but it has been declining over the past 2-3 years. He says she does not have a “huge” fan base and is certainly not famous around the entire world and points out to her last album being a flop along with her currently not winning any awards.
Future also blasts his baby mama for claiming her success helped his career — saying she had no part in his rise to the top and needs to stop living in the past.
He states that Ciara is the one who is trying to create media attention for herself by using his celebrity status and the status of her “apparent” fiancé Russell Wilson along with using their minor child.
He says if she were such a great mother she wouldn’t parade their son around cameras and would actually work with him to create a schedule for him to see his kid.
Future slapped Ciara with a counter-suit demanding she cease making any further false statements about him, along with her being ordering to pay his legal fees for her frivolous lawsuit and also unspecified punitive damages for violating the law with her nonsense complaint. Future also wants all her claims against him to be thrown out and Ciara be awarded nothing from her $15 mill complaint.
Ciara and her fiancé Russell Wilson are set to tie the knot this summer.
