Future drops lawsuit against Ciara but she's not dropping hers

Los Angeles - Future has dropped his lawsuit against Ciara.

After Ciara sued Future - the father of her two-year-old son Future Jr - for $15m for defamation, accusing him of libel and slander, the rapper hit back with his own countersuit but he has now asked the judge to dismiss the case.

TMZ reports that since Future was granted joint custody of the tot last month, he has had a change of heart because he is worried that if he continues feuding with Ciara, she will try to "restrict his custodial rights".

However, Ciara is pressing ahead with her own lawsuit, which she filed after Future - whose real name is Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn - took to social media to launch a furious rant against her, claiming that she was denying him access to their son.

He wrote: "This bitch got control problems... I gotta go through lawyers to see babyfuture...the fuckery for 15k a month. (sic).'"

After claiming that he pays $15 000 in child support every month, Future went on to insist that he just wants to see his son and has run out of patience.

He said: "I jus want babyfuture that's all. I been silent for a year & a half..I ran outta patience

"Get ready for this classic. Handling my business staying focus making music surrounded by real love & family (sic)."

However, Ciara, 32, believes that 30-year-old Future - who has four children with four different women - is slamming her in order to get publicity and is just annoyed that she has moved on with new fiancé Russell Wilson, 27.

A source said: "Ciara has said that Future uses the situation to promote his music by staying in the press using her name.

"He is jealous she has moved on and is happy. He is unable to move on and co-parent in a healthy way. Future has told her he hopes she fails in everything she does and that's just being evil."
