In bitter ex news, rapper Future throws shade at ex-fianceé Ciara in a new counter suit. As you may recall, in February, Ciara, 30, sued the father of her son, seeking $15 million in defamation and slander damages, citing past interviews and more recently, his strongly-worded Twitter rants, attacking both her and her fiancé, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

During an interview with The Breakfast Club last July, Future claimed that Ciara was using their son, 23-month-old Future Jr., as a prop for publicity, after images surfaced, featuring Wilson, 27, pushing the tot in a stroller. “At the end of the day, I’m not for the publicity stunts,” he said at the time. “Leave my son out of the publicity stunts. Just leave him out of your relationship.”
Now, Future is fighting back. According to the Jasmine Brand, the “Honest” rapper recently filed documents claiming he hasn’t damaged Ciara’s reputation because frankly, she hasn’t had a particularly great one to speak of in recent years. In short, he called her last album a “flop,” explaining that she hasn’t won any awards since 2013, as grounds for his claim.
Much like Ciara, Future is asking that the court force his ex to stop bad-mouthing him to the press. He is also requesting that the “Dance Like We’re Making Love” recording artist cover all legal fees he’s incurred as a result of her initial lawsuit.
Meanwhile, Ciara appears to be unbothered by the suit. On Wednesday, April 13, she, Wilson and Future Jr. were spotted having the time of their lives at the happiest place on earth: Disneyland.
In fact, we have to give it to CiCi, who in spite of their messy split in August 2014, has chosen to focus on the positive. “I remember telling my friend the kind of guy I wanted: a God-fearing man with a very fun spirit who loves kids and would really, truly care for me,” Ciara said of Wilson in the May issue of Essence. “I was very specific because I do believe you can have it all.”
