Ciara has responded to Future’s concerns about their 15-month-old son spending time with her new boyfriend, NFL star Russell Wilson, in a new interview on Wednesday.
Ciara Speaks On Future, Their Son, and Russell Wilson
Ciara has decided to address the fact that she wants her son — Future Zahir — to bond with the new man in her life.
“Wouldn’t you want someone to love on your child, or love on the child that you’re speaking about?” Ciara said on CBS This Morning.
The singer stressed that her son is her top priority — and she’s concerned about how he will be affected by the comments.
“People are going to talk about me. I was built for this, this is what I’m supposed to be doing,” Ciara pointed out. “But when it comes to your child, it’s something I don’t take lightly. At the end of the day, my son will be the one that’s affected the most out of this.”
Rapper and Ciara’s ex-fiancé Future, spoke out on Twitter earlier this month, after images of his son hugging Wilson while visiting him at Seattle Seahawks training camp appeared on the web.
“Never make a permanent decision over a temporary circumstance #umtoobossedup,” the rapper posted.

Ciara explained that she reached out to her son’s father afterwards to try to get him and Wilson to discuss the photos, but Future refused to speak to her.
“To speak on such a sensitive and real situation when you don’t have all the facts, that to me is the frustrating part of it all… We didn’t get to talk so that was that,” Ciara added.
The singer also reflected on her feelings about becoming a mother — highlighting how much her son has changed her entire outlook on life — and the way she works.
“After having my child, it allowed me to be in tune with my true feelings and my true thoughts,” Ciara admitted. “I’m like, ‘I am who I am, take it or leave it,’ and I just poured all that into my music and allowed myself to just be free in the process.”
