The downfall of Future‘s engagement to Ciara has long been perceived to be the result of his alleged affairs with his stylist and one of his baby mamas (he has four including CiCi). But now the rapper is blaming his failed record sales, and pressure from Ciara for the downfall…
In an interview with respected music journalist Elliott Wilson, the “Honest” rapper shared:
“I was just like man I can’t be out here [in LA]. I got to just go back home, I got to record I got to get back comfortable with doing the music that I’m doing. So I went to my fiancee at the time and I told her, “Like man lets just get back to work, lets get back to music.”
“She was pregnant and she had started working on her next album…me and Mike Will we finished the album before the album she just dropped and she didn’t want us to part of it at first.“
“I was like damn we just came off a no.1 and you go straight to Dr. Luke and start working with him? You go right back to the pop lane after you get a little steam? We shouldn’t do that. We should just finish what we started go back into that Body Party lane. Give the fans what they wanted. That’s what they want from you. Like let’s give them that and let it cross over to pop instead of trying chasing that crowd, but she was like, “Man [no], I want to record it this way,” so me and Mike Will we ain’t get a chance to work on the last album even thought we was coming off a no. 1…I thought that was a little weird… and we still in a relationship…so shit kind of threw me off.”
“At the same time I had already said we was bout to go and get married so she was just trying to feel like, we need to rush the date and [go ahead] and do it and I’m like, “Man [no], I’m not [about] get married,” I want to marry you but I can’t have no big wedding on E! News. I can’t have all these different big media outlets cover my wedding and I’m not comfortable. I’m not even comfortable with the people who in here. I’m not comfortable about where I’m at in my career…and my better judgment is telling me to go back and record.“
The couple was engaged in October 2013, but called things off in August 2014, a few months after the birth of their son Future Zahir Wilburn in May 2014.
