theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports: Future has returned to court in his nasty $18 million dollar legal battle with Ciara, demanding her lawsuit be thrown out and explaining his tweet calling his baby mama ‘bitch’ is accurate because she is one — due to her being overbearing and controlling about him being able to see his son.
Here’s the backstory: The singer filed suit against her baby daddy Future in Georgia Court on January 21st accusing him of defamation, slander and libel. Ciara said that Future has – over the past year – published numerous false and defamatory statements regarding her which contain several misrepresentations regarding her conduct and character in relation to their son.
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.
She also brought up her new boo NFL star Russell Wilson by adding in her complaint,
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 album.
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.
Future headed to court and fired back at his baby mama’s $15 mill lawsuit and slapped her with a counter-suit. He later dismissed his suit against the singer but he is still facing off with her in her lawsuit against him.
Here’s the latest: June 23rd, Future filed a motion to dismiss the entire $15 million dollar lawsuit filed by Ciara. He explains that the entire case is nonsense and nothing he said to the media or on social media was defamatory.
Future then breaks down the tweets that Ciara claimed ruined her reputation. He points out that he was asked about her new love Russell Wilson ONLY because both of them spoke about their wish to abstain from sex pending marriage. The rapper says clearly media outlets were going to ask him his thoughts.
He says all of his comments about his baby mama are opinion and not defamatory. He says that the idea that her reputation as a good mother was damaged which then had a trickle-down effect by ruining her business reputation is absurd.
In regards to his tweets containing the following statements, “This bitch got control problems ….”, “I gotta go through lawyers to see babyfuture..the fuckery for 15k a month” and multiple others, he says that he meant Ciara was a ‘bitch’ when he tweeted it due to the word meaning “overbearing”, “complaining” and “unpleasant”. He says he has a right to have an opinion on Ciara being overbearing regarding the control she is exercising over his visitation rights with their son.
The tweet regarding lawyers is also true, with the rapper saying he has had to hire lawyers to help him see his son more frequently. And the $15k a month comment was the amount Ciara was demanding he pay or she would sue him and demand $20k a month in child support.
