Things are still not good for Ciara and her baby daddy, rapper Future.
It seems the two are headed back to court as early as next week to battle things out.
If you recall, back in January, Ciara filed a $15 million dollar defamation lawsuit against Future for saying he paid her $15K in child support as well as dogging her on Twitter.
In April, Future turned the tables and countersued Ciara, saying she didn’t have a career to damage, as he claims it was over long before he tweeted his statements. Well, theJasmineBrand is reporting that the two will appear before a judge in Georgia for a hearing where Ciara is set to question Future under oath for a deposition.
The singer accused her ex-fiancé of lying about her publicly to increase interest and publicity for his upcoming musical endeavors, namely the release of his upcoming album and tour. Ciara blasts Future saying he purposefully published lies about her on his Twitter account, social media and other interviews to destroy her reputation as a good mother, to diminish her brand and to impair her professional career in the entertainment industry.
The suit explained that the parties were in a highly publicized romantic relationship given their celebrity status. The two gave birth to their son in 2014 but their relationship ended around September 2014 after the birth of Future.
Ciara said after numerous attempts to arrange custody, child support and visitation she had to file a claim against him in another state for support
Following the parties’ break-up, both plaintiff and defendant embarked on new personal relationships. However, it is important to note that given Plaintiff’s celebrity status, her relationship with her current significant other became highly publicized in April, 2015, and has been a subject of media attention since that time. Plaintiff’s new significant other is also a public figure. The singer accuses Future of exploiting her new relationship with Russell Wilson by beginning a media campaigning around June 2015 in which he used both their son and her new relationship with Russell to spread lies about her to promote his new CD.
She said it is clear that Future does not share her sentiment and desire to keep their family law matters private and confidential for the sake of their kid.
Further, she blasts her ex for accusing her of implying that she needed Russell and also that she used her son as a publicity stunt after a photo was taken by a photographer that showed her with Russell and Future Jr. in a stroller.
She stated that her legal team contacted Future’s lawyers demanding a retraction and apology about his tweets regarding her being a mother, but he didn’t care to respond and no apology was issued. Future didn’t comply, so she headed to court and slapped him with a $15 mill dollar lawsuit along seeking $250k in attorney fees.
