Ciara dropping Future lawsuit
Ciara is dropping her defamation lawsuit against Future - because she's earning too much money.
The 30-year-old singer took legal action against her former fiance - the father of her two-year-old son Future Jr - after he lashed out at her on Twitter, claiming in court documents his disparaging comments "scared away an international cosmetics company she thinks would have paid her $500,000"
However, in order to win a defamation lawsuit, she would have had to prove she has suffered financially, but Ciara is making more money now than when she was Future said she was a "bitch" with "control problems".
According to TMZ, the 'Goodies' singer's lawyer, Larry Stein, has filed legal documents to drop the libel claim after a judge already dismissed a separate defamation claim.
However, Ciara is still suing future for "false light", which does not require showing she has lost income but could lead to her being awarded damages if it is deemed the 32-year-old rapper made her look like someone she is not.
In her previous documents, she claimed the angry messages Future wrote about her on social media damaged her "positive reputation" and portrayed her as "controlling, dishonest, malicious, unreasonable, evil, and conniving".
Future - whose real name is Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn -previously took to twitter to launch a furious rant against Ciara, claiming that she was denying him access to their son.
He wrote: "This bitch got control problems... I gotta go through lawyers to see babyfuture...the f**kery for 15k a month. (sic)."
After claiming that he pays $15,000 in child support every month, Future went on to insist that he just wants to see his son and has run out of patience.
He said: "I jus want babyfuture that's all. I been silent for a year & a half..I ran outta patience
"Get ready for this classic. Handling my business staying focus making music surrounded by real love & family (sic)."
However, Ciara was said to believe Future - who has four children with four different women - slammed her in order to get publicity and was just annoyed that she has moved on with Russell Wilson, 27, who she married earlier this year.
A source previously said: "Ciara has said that Future uses the situation to promote his music by staying in the press using her name.
"He is jealous she has moved on and is happy. He is unable to move on and co-parent in a healthy way. Future has told her he hopes she fails in everything she does and that's just being evil."
