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. Plantiff’s new significant other is also a public figure.
Ciara claims Future has made several false and defamatory statements to journalist and members of the media which have been re-published to millions of listeners, readers and viewers around throughout the world.
The singer accuses Future of exploiting her new relationship with Russell by beginning a media campaign 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.
Ciara points to the infamous HuffPostLive interview in which Future spoke about not waiting till marriage to have sexual relations with her. She says that her ex inappropriately divulged details of their personal life to the interviewer and millions of listeners, saying that Future only brought it up because Russell spoke about waiting to do anything sexual with Ciara until they were married.
She says 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.
Following this public accusation, Ciara says,
shockingly, instead of ceasing from his egregious behavior in attacking the mother of ones of his children in the media, Defendant continued to make several other false and defamatory remarks about her.
She points out to his interview with XXL magazine in which he spoke about the NFL star and his son with Ciara being photographer together and accused her of being evil with her actions.
The suit says that Future knowingly made false statements in an attempt to ruin her reputation in the industry and harm her reputation and Ciara claims his comments have indeed affected her potential professional opportunities, which she says directly relate to her involvement with children and her parenting of their son.
Ciara also says Future has subjected her to public contempt and ridicule just as he intended to do with his comments.
The last straw for Ciara was Future’s tweets including statements he made about her not allowing him to see his son for over a year and accusing her of having control problems, along with saying he had to go through lawyers to see Future despite paying her 15k a month.
Ciara says all his tweets were a gross inaccurate and false impression of her. She explains that the rapper has never paid her 15k a month in child support since his birth, but she says he tweeted it to cast her in a negative and disparaging light.
The singer says since December 2014, Future has seen his son about 19 different occasions. Some of the occasions spanned several days. Ciara claims she has gone out of her way to bring her son to Georgia to spend time with his dad. She says she has also made their son available to see in Los Angeles, when the rapper is visiting or any other city they are both in at the same time.
Ciara says Future’s goal is to assassinate her name, reputation and character, all in an attempt to make sure she never works again as an artist.
She states 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.
Ciara filed suit demanding over 15 million from Future for spreading lies about her as a mother and trying to ruin her entire career, along with an order prohibiting Future from speaking about their son in the press … and she wants 250k in legal fees for having to sue her ex-fiance in court.
Future has yet to respond to the lawsuit.
