Ciara Drops Defamation Case Against Future Because She’s Too Rich
Ciara has dropped the libel case she filed against her ex, the rapper Future.
According to TMZ, the singer had to drop the case because the law states that she must prove she suffered financial loss after he defamed her. The singer’s finance has been growing exponentially since he assassinated her character on social media. Only recently, she landed a Revlon deal.
Ciara has a legal problem that actually serves her well … she can’t win her defamation lawsuit against baby daddy Future because she’s raking in so much money professionally, she has no damages.
Ciara’s lawyer, Larry Stein, just filed legal docs dismissing the remaining libel claim she filed after her ex said some choice things about her, including, “This bitch got control problems.”
Problem is … to win a defamation lawsuit, you have to prove you’ve suffered financially, and Ciara is actually making more money now than before Future talked smack on her.
So she’s dropped the libel claim — the judge already dismissed a separate defamation claim — but the case isn’t over.
Russell Wilson’s wife is still suing Future for what’s called “false light” … alleging Future has made her look like someone she’s not. Proving false light does not require a showing she’s lost income. She could get money just for the heartache of it all.
So the case goes on.
The drama started after Future put her on blast on Twitter, called her a “controlling bitch”, and claimed he pays $15,000 per month for the welfare of their son, a claim Ciara refuted. Ciara slammed him with a $15m lawsuit and he countersued but lost the case and was forced to delete the defamatory tweets.
Now, Ciara has dropped the case because, truth be told, his badmouthing didn’t affect her earnings.
Instead, TMZ adds that Ciara is continuing with the second suit she filed against Future for what’s called “false light”, alleging that Future made her look bad in the public eye.
This case does not require proof of losing income, and if she wins this one, he will be forking over some cash into her bank account.
