Remember how Ciara refused to call he ex-fiancé, Future’s name while announcing the nominees for the 2016 Billboard Music Awards? Watch here if you missed.
Well, there’s serious bad blood between these two!
We reported weeks back that Ciara slammed a $15 million lawsuit on Future for alleged libel and slander against her person and mothering skills which the rapper then called a joke (read here if you missed).
Now, following Monday’s BBMA escapade, The Jasmine Brand reports that Future is countersuing Ciara in the defamation lawsuit. He claims she’s nothing but a washed-up singer whose career is failing and clearly sued him to generate publicity for her lackluster album sales.
On April 8th, Future fired back at Ciara with the counter lawsuit where he began by addressing Ciara’s allegations of defamation– saying she waited past the statute of limitations to sue him if he did slander her name and thus he demands her claims to be throw out.
He points out that her lawsuit generated more publicity than any of his tweets did and therefore she intentionally damaged herself by suing him. He also claims that the alleged service of process of the lawsuit by her was attempted at LAX in front of paparazzi.
Future says Ciara is a publicity whore and is clearly trying ever way to milk the lawsuit to generate PR for herself.
In regards to his Tweets , he says when he called her a “bitch” it meant overbearing, complaining or unpleasant — not a lewd or immoral woman.
The rapper also accuses Ciara of lying about his tweet referencing the $15k child support. He says she knows that’s actually what SHE is seeking and she told him she would sue him for $20k in support if he didn’t pay her the $15k a month she wanted. He says none of his social media posts were false or defamatory and there was no malice involved but rather the reaction of a father who wanted to see his son more frequently and on a more reasonable basis — all of which is protected by freedom of speech.
Future then goes for the jugular. He admits that both work in the entertainment industry but he says Ciara does not currently have a successful singer. He states if that statement was made several years ago it would have been accurate to state, since she had a successful career but it has been declining over the past 2-3 years. He says she does not have a “huge” fan base and is certainly not famous around the entire world and points out to her last album being a flop along with her currently not winning any awards.
Future also blasts his baby mama for claiming her success helped his career — saying she had no part in his rise to the top and needs to stop living in the past.
He states that Ciara is the one who is trying to create media attention for herself by using his celebrity status and the status of her “apparent” fiancé Russell Wilson along with using their minor child.
He says if she were such a great mother she wouldn’t parade their son around cameras and would actually work with him to create a schedule for him to see his kid.
Future slapped Ciara with a counter-suit demanding she cease making any further false statements about him, along with her being ordering to pay his legal fees for her frivolous lawsuit and also unspecified punitive damages for violating the law with her nonsense complaint. Future also wants all her claims against him to be thrown out and Ciara be awarded nothing from her $15 million complaint.
