Ciara has reportedly dropped her defamation lawsuit against rapper ex-fiance and father of her son, Future.
The lawsuit, which was filed back in February, sought $15 million for slandering her name in public and making it seem like she was a bad mother to their son, baby Future.
Then in July, she reportedly filed additional documents to support her lawsuit after claiming Future’s social media attacks on her caused her to lose out on half a million dollars and that he also threatened to murder her current husband, American football star Russell Wilson on his song ‘Juice’ rapping “Tryna f**k my baby mama, dog what’s up with you? / You gon’ make me get that heat, I’m pulling up on you”.
Earlier this year, Future had filed a countersuit against the singer, claiming his alleged social media slander could not affect her reputation since she didn’t have that large of a following anyway, a suit he later dismissed after he won joint custody of their son.
For her to have won the defamation lawsuit, Ciara would’ve had to prove that she had suffered financially because of Future’s tweets, which she couldn’t. So she’s dropped the libel claim.
However, the legal battle between the both of them is far from over as Ciara is still suing Future for something called a “false light,” which legally means that he has portrayed her as someone she’s not. Unlike her initial libel suit, she doesn’t need to prove her financial loss to continue with this suit so the case will continue.
