Ciara accuses Future of threatening Russell Wilson's life
Ciara has filed court papers alleging she fears her ex-fiance Future will act on his threats to shoot her future husband Russell Wilson.
The Goodies beauty dumped Future in August, 2014, just three months after the birth of their son, Future Zahir, and their split turned nasty earlier this year (Feb16), when Ciara filed a $15 million (£11.5 million) defamation lawsuit against her ex.
In her legal documents, the R&B singer accused the rapper of knowingly making false and defamatory statements about her parenting skills on social media.
Future hit back with his own lawsuit, but he reportedly had a change of heart last month (Jun16) and asked the judge overseeing their dispute to dismiss his case against Ciara.
However, the 30-year-old mum is moving forward with her complaint, and has now lodged new papers in court, claiming she genuinely fears for the life of Russell, who she became engaged to in March (16) after a year of dating.
According to TMZ.com, Ciara is worried about the multiple references Future has allegedly made about causing harm to her new beau on social media and in song, highlighting one Instagram.com post in which the Jumpman hitmaker is said to have alluded to Wilson by using football emojis with guns pointed in their direction.
She also points out lyrics to a track called Juice, which Future recently recorded with DJ Esco, on which he spits: "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."
Ciara goes on to brand Future's reported behaviour "frightening" and "socially irresponsible", especially in light of "a recent rash of gun violence" in the U.S.
It is not clear why Ciara has brought up the alleged threats as part of her defamation case.
Wilson, the quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, has yet to comment on the latest accusations against Future, but the news of the filing emerges days after the hip-hop star claimed he bears no ill will towards his ex-fiancee in a candid interview with Rolling Stone magazine.
"Ciara being successful, her being happy, helps me," Future said, before addressing the singer directly, adding, "I'm attached to you. If you're happy, I'm happy. You're connected for life. I don't want you to go through this s**t and for it to come back on my son, my kid. I want you to be in the best situation."
