Pop star Ciara is suing her rapper ex-boyfriend Future for USD 15 million, claiming his “venomous tweets” and press statements caused permanent damage to her career.
In her defamation lawsuit filed in Fulton County, Georgia, Ciara claims Future acted with “actual malice” when he described her as calculating and controlling and someone who would use their son for “publicity stunts”, reported New York Daily News.
The exes were engaged in 2013 but broke up a few months after their son was born in May 2014.
The “Love Sex Magic” singer now is dating NFL star Russell Wilson, the quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks.
Ciara claims in her filing that Future acted with “actual malice” when he falsely claimed in a highly publicised January 4 Twitter rant that she blocked his access to their son despite his monthly child support payments of USD 15,000.
The tweets “were so completely false that defendant had to know the damage he would cause plaintiff,” Ciara claims in her lawsuit.
