Future Files Countersuit Against Ciara

Future has filed a counter lawsuit against ex partner Ciara, who, in February, sued the producer for defamation.

The "I Bet" singer filed a $15 million lawsuit against Future for saying some unsavory things about their relationship on Twitter (in deleted tweets, he called her a “bitch” with “control problems"). She also took issue with an interview where he claimed that she uses their son, baby Future, for publicity stunts.

On Wednesday, news broke that Future has filed his own suit against Ciara. In the papers, he claims he never tarnished CiCi's reputation because she doesn't have one, TMZ reports. He said that, while her fanbase is "reasonably large," her last album was "a flop" and that she hasn't won that many awards since 2013. It's worth noting that that's the time when Future started dating and working with Ciara.

Future wants Ciara to cover the legal fees from the whole debacle, and ultimately, he wants her to stop talking about him in public... even though she has, since she wouldn't even speak his name when announcing the Billboard Music Awards nominees on Monday.
