Back in February, Ciara sued her ex-fiancé/son’s father, Future, over a string of tweets he’d sent out defaming her name. Ciara accused him of defamation, slander and libel, and sued him for $15 million in a Georgia court.
Now Future is blasting back, counter-suing and demanding she cease making any further false statements about him, as well as pay his legal fees for her lawsuit and unspecified punitive damages for violating the law with her nonsense complaint. He also wants her lawsuit thrown out.
In his lawsuit, Future addressed all of Ciara’s claims, first with the “defamation of character”:
“… 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.”
On 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.”
On Ciara’s career:
“He admits that they 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 also says Ciara is using their child as a pawn for media attention. Man, this is ugly!
