It’s beginning to look a lot like … drama.

Newlywed Ciara took time out of her honeymoon with husband Russell Wilson to file yet another lawsuit against her estranged ex-fiancé Future. According to new legal docs obtained by TMZ, the “Goodies” singer claims that the “Honest” rapper’s January 4 Twitter tirade cost her a $500K contract with “an international cosmetics company.”

“I been silent for a year & a half..I ran outta patience,” the Atlanta native, who has joint-custody of their adorable two-year-old son Future Jr., tweeted at the time. “I jus want babyfuture that’s all. I gotta go through lawyers to see babyfuture…the f*ckery for 15k a month. This b*tch got control problems.”

As previously reported, the Grammy winner responded by slapping Future with a $15M defamation lawsuit, also demanding he cough up $250K for legal fees, delete the nasty tweets, stop speaking on private family matters regarding baby Future and issue a retraction/apology. In the suit, Ci Ci maintained she’s gone out of her way to ensure Future has access to their son, claiming they’ve had at least 19 visitations (some spanning several days) since December 2014.


Now, Future is asking Ciara to “show me the receipts.” In fact, the 32-year-old is asking that the judge completely dismiss Ciara’s cosmetic claim, as he believes it’s phony baloney and she’s provided no proof any such deal existed to begin with.

It’s been a whirlwind year for the IMG Model, who famously split from the “Wicked” hitmaker just three months after the birth of their baby boy amid allegations he cheated with his stylist Tyrina Lee. Though Ci Ci attempted to move on peacefully, chaos ensued after photos surfaced featuring her then 27-year-old Seattle Seahawks boyfriend playing “papa” to baby Future. “Never make a permanent decision over a temporary circumstance #umtoobossedup,” Future tweeted on August 1. Meanwhile, T.I. had a few words of his own for the pop star, taking to Instagram writing, “I’d go da F–K OFF bro!!! Sh-t way outta line to me…. But that’s just me.”

In spite of it all, on Wednesday, July 6, Ciara and Wilson, who remained celibate during their courtship, got their fairytale ending when they made it official at the Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England.
