Ciara Takes Future to Court
If you guys haven’t heard already, Ciara is suing Future for libel and defamation of character. The Body Party singer is accusing her child’s father of using the internet to malign her character in an attempt to undermine her career. Ciara is asking a judge to muzzle the trap rapper, as well as a cool fifteen million in damages.
Now you guys know I love me some Ciara, but I’ve also been quite vocal about her obvious missteps in even entertaining Future, a man who had several children by several different women, none of whom he’d ever married. However, in the case of this lawsuit, I think Ciara is making a mistake, one that actually plays into Future’s hands if Cici really does believe he’s out to make her look bad in the eyes of the public.
A lawsuit looks desperate and petty. So what Future is making random meany comments about her online. It’s what happens in relationships in modern times. Stupid people take it to social media and so far it is only Future who has looked bad. No one cares about his Instagram rantings and they in no way have impacted Ciara’s career in any meaningful fashion. Has she lost out on an endorsement or been dropped by her label or company simply because of Future’s words? I doubt it.
Right now she’s looking rather foolish in the eyes of the public, including mine. I had hoped this story was false when I first read it on The Jasmine Brand. Sadly, it isn’t. Ciara has moved on and she should have stayed looking forward. Engaging Future in a legal battle is a bad move all around. I doubt she’ll win in court, and worst of all, Baby Future will probably continue to be passed back and forth between the two at the front door.
Even if parents have parted or divorced, it does a child well to see his parents being loving and caring towards one another. Baby Future needs time with his mother and father TOGETHER. These are the little things immature folks never think about when they’re busy trying to tear their child’s other parent to shreds.
Ciara needs to drop this lawsuit and make amends with Future. They both need to grow up, shut up, and get to down to the business of raising their son out of the spotlight.
