The two share one one child together, 2-year-old Future Zahir Wilburn. The lawsuit came after Future spoke disparagingly about Ciara and her now-husband Russell Wilson during a radio interview and then tweeted more about the custody battle over their child, saying she had “control problems.”
Ciara responded with a legal filing, accusing Future of criticizing her and her relationship with Wilson to promote his music.
