Future Drops Lawsuit Against Ciara
As Gossip Cop reported, in February Ciara sued her former fiancé for defamation after he bad-mouthed her parenting of their son, also named Future. The rapper in turn filed a counter-suit in March. In it he claimed the singer was using their child for publicity, and that her claims of career damage had no merit. He was seeking punitive damages, and for Ciara to pay his legal fees.
But now Future has reportedly asked for his lawsuit to be dismissed. His decision comes a month after Ciara was denied sole custody of their little boy. As Gossip Cop noted at the time, a judge ruled in mid-May that the two stars are to share joint custody, as Future himself had wanted.
And now that he has equals rights when it comes to caring for and seeing their toddler, Future has decided to forgo the lawsuit and not risk further custody problems, according to TMZ. Apparently, though, the feeling is not mutual. The site reports Ciara is still moving forward with her lawsuit, which means Future could be on the hook for $15 million should she win. Neither star has commented on the going legal situation. Gossip Cop will continue to have updates.
