Celebrity gist: Future considering countersuit against Ciara

Yesterday, Ciara filed a $15 million slander lawsuit against Future for libel and slander, making reference to his offensive words in interviews and on social media.

Now, a new report from TMZ reveals that Future thinks the lawsuit is absurd because Ciara is equally guilty of public slander and libel.

In lyrics to “I Bet,” Ciara sings “So I’m supposed to believe that it’s Fellini’s calling’ your phone? / I’m supposed to believe that they’re asking’ you if you’re home” and “Is that your bitch over there giving me the ugly stare / The one with the silicone ass, and the Brazilian hair.” If Future can prove these words are about him then Ciara will have much weaker legal standing in the case.

Future had previously complained about Russell Wilson’s public involvement with his child Baby Future and his inability to see his child as often as he’d like.

Future believes he could have sued over those lyrics, but instead chose to take the high road. Now, he’s reportedly considering a lawsuit of his own, but will hold off until he can see the exact terms of her legal documents.
