Ciara Replies to Future’s Parenting Criticism

Ciara’s baby daddy and ex-fiancé Nayvadius Cash, AKA Future, has taken to Twitter to voice his opinion about football player Russell Wilson’s involvement in his son’s life. After images of Wilson, who is Ciara’s current boyfriend, hugging Future Zahir (Ciara and Future’s child) at Seattle Seahawks’ training camp flooded the internet, Future tweeted his criticism of Ciara’s decision. “Never make a permanent decision over a temporary circumstance. #umtoobossedup,” he wrote. The “Bugatti” rapper was obviously not a big fan of the interaction.

Wednesday, on CBS This Morning, the “Dance Like We’re Making Love” singer finally responded to Future’s disapproval. Ciara, 29, made it clear that after getting to know Wilson, she felt it was perfectly okay to open her son up to the love of the man she is dating. “Wouldn’t you want someone to love on your child, or love on the child that you’re speaking about?” she said.

Ciara recognized that being a celebrity meant that people would continue to talk about her. They will, and can, talk about her style, romantic relationships, and music, but when it comes to her son, that is where people cross the line. “People are going to talk about me. I was built for this, this what I’m supposed to be doing, but when it comes to your child, it’s something I don’t take lightly,” she told CBS. “At the end of the day, my son will be the one that’s affected the most out of this. I think people have to think about that versus just shouting out things.”

Ciara has tried to contact Future to help clear the air, but he does not want to talk to her. She doesn’t think it is right for him to speak on such a sensitive and personal topic when he does not know all of the facts. Ciara wants her son’s father and social media trolls to think about how their words will impact her child. Ciara and Future have not spoken further, and she left it at that.

Future Zahir is Ciara’s number one priority, and she thinks about his welfare over everything else. She believes that her son has given her the opportunity to tap into her “true feelings” and her “true thoughts,” especially when it comes to her newfound freedom when creating music.
