Future ‘using ex Ciara to boost business’

Future is reportedly using Ciara to boost his reputation.

The former couple were engaged for nine months until their split in August 2014 and they are parents to 14-month-old son Future Zahir Wilburn.

Future Sr. just released his new album DS2, which is abbreviation for Dirty Sprite 2, and it’s claimed he’s been speaking about Ciara a lot in interviews of late for specific publicity purposes.

“It’s definitely a part of the plan. When they split up, everyone hated him because he cheated. He’s been painting her as this diva and villain to make himself look better and to take the heat off of him cheating,” a source told Page Six.

The 31-year-old rapper-and-producer has had very little good to say about his ex Ciara’s new relationship with Russell Wilson.

Apparently the rage is slightly deceptive, as Future’s record label is relishing in his public outbursts because “it pushes sales” of his new album.

However, it’s also claimed he felt unduly demonised as a womaniser following his and Ciara’s breakup.

“This is his way of retaliating because everyone loves her new relationship,” the source noted. “She’s not even thinking about him. She’s focused on her child and providing as a single mother.”

The thing which really angered Future was seeing Russell pushing Future Zahir in his pram. The star fumed over how disrespectful the act was.

"At the end of the day, I’m not for the publicity stunt,” Future Sr. said during an appearance on radio show The Breakfast Club. “Leave my son out of all the publicity sh*t. Just leave him out of your relationship, because we don’t need your relationship for anything.

"Of course I wouldn’t want anyone to push my son. That’s like the number one rule. If I was a kid, and my mom had a dude pushing me, I would’ve jumped out the stroller and slapped the sh*t out of him. You only know this dude for a few months and you’re bringing him around your kid? Who does that? Nobody does that."
