There’s no future for this lawsuit.
Rapper Future dismissed a countersuit against his ex-fianceé, R&B singer Ciara, after winning a joint custody agreement that affords him an increased presence in their baby son’s life, TMZ reports.
A judge last month denied Ciara’s plea for full custody of the former couple’s two-year-old son, Future Jr., and awarded the “Move That Dope” rapper joint custody, the gossip site reported at the time.
In an apparent effort not to jeopardize that court victory, Future reportedly dismissed his counter suit in response to Ciara’s February $15 million defamation lawsuit, in which she alleged his “venomous tweets” and various press interviews about their personal lives had harmed her career.
She is forging ahead with the suit, per TMZ.
The “Goodies” singer’s defamation suit, filed in Georgia, had claimed Future acted with “actual malice” in his Jan. 4 Twitter tirade when he wrote that Ciara prevented him from seeing Future Jr. despite his $15,000 monthly child support payments.
“This b—- got control problems…” he tweeted. “I gotta go through lawyers to see babyfuture…the f—ery for 15k a month.”
In court papers, the singer slammed her ex’s claims and insisted he’d had plenty of visitation with their child.
“Some of those occasions spanned several days. (Ciara) has gone out of her way to bring the minor child to Georgia to spend time with the defendant,” she wrote in her filing.
Ciara and Future, respectively born Ciara Harris and Nayvadius Wilburn, were engaged in 2013 and split a few months after Future Jr. was born in May 2014. Ciara began dating Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson in April 2015, and the two announced their engagement March 11.
