Ciara has sued rapper Future (real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn) and claimed $15 million as damages caused when he objected to her mothering their son Future, Jr. in a radio interview. The rapper spoke about how he doesn’t want his son to publicized in Ciara’s love life with NFL player Russell Wilson. Future referred to a photo Ciara shared, where Wilson is strolling with their son and with Ciara beside him; with regards to the photo, Future said, “She probably set [Russell] up. You’re letting them catch that photo. Leave my son out of all the publicity stunts [sic].”

Ciara, who’s been dating the Seattle Seahawks quarterback since April 2015, gave birth to Future Jr. while she and her ex-fiancé were still engaged in 2014. Sources say that although Russell Wilson is supporting Ciara during her dispute, he’s also encouraging her to forget about Future. Ciara and Future got engaged in 2014; however, Ciara called off the engagement when she found out that her fiancé had cheated on her. Since then, they’ve separated and are now taking care of baby Future mutually. Sources close to Wilson have reportedly revealed, “He knows she probably still loves [Future]. That’s cool because Russell isn’t threatened [sic].”
The 30-year-old singer has sued Future for slander and libel, and she’s asking for $15 million as compensation. This amount is actually more than three times more than what Future owns! That’s right, the 32-year-old rapper has a net worth of just over $4 million as of 2015.
So, in case Future loses the lawsuit and has to pay up the $15 million, it could leave him with next to nothing. On the contrary, if Ciara wins the lawsuit, then that would double her current net worth. Ciara’s current value is about $17 million, and her boyfriend Russell Wilson’s net worth is just over $14 million. At this point, however, this is all simple assumption, as Ciara could very well withdraw this lawsuit later on; after all, she and Future have a kid together. If this former couple keeps on warring with each other, then it could have a long-term impact on their son. It’s too soon to say what might come from this dispute, but in any case, the “future” is looking pretty bleak for these two.
