“She’s Very Embarrassed”: Ciara Reportedly Keeping To Herself, Away From Friends And Family, Since Split From Future
Ever since news spread about Ciara and Future’s split earlier this month, she’s been very quiet about everything, aside from checking Us Weekly about a report they did claiming she talked to the magazine about life after leaving the rapper:
“@UsWeekly I did not do this interview with you! This is a lie, and tasteless! Must you be that thirsty to create a story?! Unbelievable”
“Be CLEAR @usweekly. I interviewed with your Beauty Editor about Degree & Mtv HOS. U manipulated my words & took the interview for sensation.”
“As I Said, Thirsty!!”
But according to a new report from E! News, a source close to the singer says she has been keeping to herself and focusing on her son, Future, since their engagement ended.
The source told the mag, “she’s very embarrassed and keeping to herself right now.”
“She’s usually so outgoing but most of her friends haven’t heard from her since the news broke.”
The source says that the singer also isn’t talking about the split and doesn’t plan to.
“It’s a hard time for her. She’s humiliated and angry.”
When CiCi covered Brides, she said that she had a wedding date set with Future, who she called “my best friend in the world, my partner.”
According to the singer’s Instagram account, aside from going to the studio to work on new music, she’s been making business moves and rolling solo. She recently (as in yesterday) posted a picture of herself in the gym, holding baby Future, the little guy she’s focused on amid all the drama.
“Nothing Like Lifting THIS Weight, After Gym:) He Motivates Me To Go Harder.”
After weeks of completely ignoring reports that his fiancée, Ciara, called off their engagement because he cheated on her with his stylist, Future decided to address the rumors via Instagram in a bit of a roundabout way.
“I Dnt respond to rumors I respond to money #MONSTER,” he captioned a photo of himself sitting in what appears to be a recording studio.
His post appears to be more symbolic than anything, as it has been reported that he’s set to address his split from the “I’m Out” singer on his new mixtape, “Evol,” which is love spelled backwards and pronounced “evil.” Friends of the 30-year-old rapper have already spoken out about the project.
“That love thing kinda hindered him I think, it slowed him down mentally,” one friend told BuzzFeed. “Future’s one of those dudes you don’t really interview,” he said. “To know what’s going on in his life that day, you gotta go to the studio that day. He just takes longer to put his words together and his thoughts.”
The friend went on to say that the project isn’t actually about falling out of love, but rather the various and unexpected forms that love can take.
“Future has a weird way to love. You might see it’s not all the way right, but it’s still love. It’s not traditional love,” the friend went on. “Future loves all his kids and babies’ mothers. I think he’s loved all of them equally.
In other Future news, it also appears that mother of one of his other sons, Brittni Mealy, accompanied him during his recent trip to Europe. It’s unclear whether or not the two have reunited romantically, but at this rate, I wouldn’t be surprised.

In today’s day and age, you can’t just be a talented musician without someone looking to compare your talents to someone else. That includes the legends, as well as today’s icons. But sometimes, even when people mean well, some reach quite far when comparing today’s artists to those of the past and present. Here are a few examples of musical comparisons gone left…
Jhene Aiko Being Compared To Sade
I’m a pretty huge Sade fan, and really, I don’t think there is anyone like her musically. This is not to say that she’s the greatest to ever do it, but she carved out her own lane and is one of the few performers who can go on long breaks and still be welcomed back with open arms (and #1 albums) when she returns. So when I heard the comparisons between Sade Adu and Jhene Aiko, I raised an eyebrow. Aiko said that at one point, people classified her and her music as a “younger Sade with urban stories.” And in VIBE she said it’s a comparison she embraces: “That’s great if people think that because she’s amazing. That’s someone I’d love to be in the same lane as.”
“You Gotta Keep THOTs In Their Place”: Wiz Khalifa Talks Staying Faithful To Amber Rose With All The Temptation
As if everyday people don’t find themselves encountering temptation that could threaten their relationship (just say no!), I can’t imagine all the people that throw themselves at celebrities who are supposed to be in committed relationships on a daily basis. Ciara and Future’s engagement just came to an end last week because of rumors of infidelity surrounding the rapper while he was on tour. But rapper Wiz Khalifa, currently on his “Under The Influence of Music” tour says there’s nothing out there for him because he’s committed to his wife of almost two years, Amber Rose.
In an interview with Sister 2 Sister’s Leila McDowell, Khalifa talked about keeping things “fresh” with his wife of almost two years. “She’s fresh. I’m super fresh. It ain’t hard. There is no temptation for me. You gotta keep the THOTs in their place. I smoke with ‘em, chill, but it doesn’t go past that. You know? They know what it is though.”
Khalifa also talked about fatherhood and how Baby Bash has changed him. “I love my son. I take care of my son. It’s like spending time with him is definitely that reset button that I be needing during the day. It’s good to have him here for that.”
Khalifa, who admitted to smoking at least an ounce of marijuana a week, also spoke to McDowell about becoming something of an advocate for the drug since so many people are locked up for non-violent drug-related offenses. “These are non-threatening people who are being punished with mandatory numbers and stuff like that for things that are not even that serious. I know tons of pot-heads or even growers who might have tons of plants and pounds, and they’re the nicest people in the world. They take care of their kids. But the law would lock those people up and make them seem like bad people.”
You can check out Khalifa’s interview with McDowell below:
According to a source claiming to be close the the “I’m Out” singer, CiCi called off the engagement after learning that Future had been unfaithful.
“He cheated on her. Game over,” one source said.
“She’s devastated. Ciara’s focus now is the baby,” added another.
Shortly after that, the publication released an interview that they had conducted before news of the couple’s split broke, in which CiCi discussed motherhood and her appearance on MTV’s House of Style for Degree Women. The headline reads: “Ciara Talks About Motherhood and Life After Future Split.”
In the article, it is currently noted that the interview was conducted prior to news of the breakup leaking; however, it’s unclear it the gossip pub’s initial report made that clear. Nevertheless, once CiCi got word of how the story was being framed, she quickly took to Twitter to call them out.
“@UsWeekly I did not do this interview with you! This is a lie, and tasteless! Must you be that thirsty to create a story?! Unbelievable,” she tweeted.
Be CLEAR @usweekly. I interviewed with your Beauty Editor about Degree & Mtv HOS. U manipulated my words & took the interview for sensation.

As I Said, Thirsty!! — Ciara (@ciara) August 14, 2014
What’s interesting to note about all of this is that Ciara did not refute breakup claims made by the magazine.

It’s over. Just a few days ago, we speculated, based on a noticeable absence on Ciara’s Instagram account, that she and rapper/producer Future, real name Nayvadius Cash, had ended their whirlwind romance.
According to Us Weekly, multiple sources have revealed that Ciara, 28 and Future, 30 have called off their engagement, just three months after welcoming their son Future Zahir Wilburn into the world.
A source said simply, “He cheated on her. Game over.” And another source claimed “She’s devastated. Ciara’s focus now is the baby.”
Ciara and Future’s relationship seemed to be moving very fast. The couple started dating around January of 2013. In October, the couple got engaged and then seven months later they welcomed their son Future, Ciara’s first and Future’s fourth.
And just two months ago, Brides Magazine released Ciara’s interview where she spoke and even cried about Future and the love she had for him. It was conducted several months prior.
I had an inkling from the very beginning of their relationship that this wasn’t going to end well. And so did another one of Future’s baby momma’s, Brittini Mealy, who predicted that he would leave once she gave birth, saying “Something about adding a kid to the equation changes things for him.”
She called it. And while many of us could see the writing on the wall, it’s still sad to see anyone breakup, especially now that there’s a child involved.
Ever since we learned of Ciara and Future’s coupledom, we knew that ole boy had children from prior relationships. Four to be exact (including baby Future). And each child has a different mother.
We’ve known about the children and baby mommas. What we didn’t know was that Future, 30, was having trouble keeping up with his child support payments. According to The Jasmine Brand, a Georgia judge is ordering that monthly child support payments be deducted directly from his paychecks from his music label.
The ruling is in response to Jessica Smith, the mother of Future’s 10-year-old son, claiming that the rapper is trying to pay less than his income dictates.
Last year, the two reached a child support agreement where Future paid $1,662 a month based on claims his monthly income was $16,516. But in March 2013, Smith submitted a child support modification suit stating that she believed Future was lying about his income and was actually making more than $50,000 a month and she wanted his child support to reflect the increase in pay.
Future alleged that he never lied about his true income and then filed documents requesting increased custody of their son.
Though Future claimed there was no increase in income back in 2013, just last month Smith and Future came to a new agreement. And Future’s child support payments are now $2,800 a month. The payments will be deducted directly from his checks and given to Smith. He was also ordered to pay $3,952 in past due child support.
The documents also note that Future has two more children whom he is still fighting in court over child support issues.
If you’re interested in reading the court documents, you can do so here.
It’s interesting that Future spent $500,000 on an engagement ring for Ciara when he had child support that he hadn’t paid.
And in other news, rumors are starting to circulate that Ciara and Future are no longer together. There are several pieces of evidence. Future hasn’t been featured on Ciara’s Instagram page since Father’s Day, she recently vacationed to Ibiza without Future and probably the most damning evidence of them all is the fact that Ciara hasn’t been seen wearing her ring in a long time. Yikes.
I guess, it’s something like another one of his baby mamas, Brittini Mealy said, “Something about adding a kid to the equation changes things for him.”
What do you think about Future’s child support situation and the rumors that these two are no longer together? Are you surprised?
Ciara showed off her post pregnancy body in a series of pictures this past Saturday.
The new mom has been vacationing in Ibiza, Spain for the last few days with her mother and baby Future. While on the trip, Ciara posted a photo of herself in all black for Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci’s birthday party. The songstress looked absolutely stunning in the black and gold pants ensemble.
In addition to her post-baby body pictures, Ciara also snapped multiple pictures of baby Future’s first trip to Ibiza. She captioned one of the pictures,
“He’s so fascinated. I am too. #soakingitallin #Love #ibizamemories”
The three month old is already receiving passport stamps.
Poppa Future, aka Ciara’s fiancée Future, wasn’t posted in any of the pictures so we assume he must’ve been off on a tour somewhere making money for his family. During an interview with E online, Ciara’s eyes started to water up as she talked about their first interaction and how much she loves her king. It looks as though Ciara is finally getting the happy ending she deserves.
“It’s All In Fun!”: Angela Simmons Upset Over Bow Wow’s Oral Sex Comments, But He Claims He Was Just Joking…
Yesterday we told you about some comments Shad Moss, better known as Bow Wow, made as a guest on Nick Cannon’s MTV show, Wild N’ Out. When asked during a game of “Plead the Fif” who gave better oral sex between ex girlfriends Ciara and Angela Simmons, instead of pleading the fifth, he had this to say:
“Well, at one time they both was my women correct? So if you put one and one together I mean, of course we must have been doing the do if they was my women, correct? Well, then I might as well go ‘head and keep it even, they both is might, mighty, mighty swell.”
Most of our readers agreed that his comments were very inappropriate, and that men shouldn’t be out here talking about the skills of the women they’ve been with, let alone sex with an ex. But Bow Wow is now saying that he really didn’t say anything crazy about both women, and that it was all just a joke that people are taking way too seriously.
He did admit on Instagram that his comments have Simmons a bit peeved, but he says that she knows better than anybody that he was just being goofy. And of course, he promoted the episode, which will air tonight on MTV.
“This will be a classic! Im all about the craft. Improving and giving you pure entertainment. Im putting all my skills on display tonight! THIS SHOW WILL GO DOWN AS THE BIGGEST!!! Enjoy the jokes its all in fun! If you take things serious.. Well this aint the show for you! PS.. Yes ANG wants to ring my neck but she knows me and that im goofy and this is all games. I brought my A game tonight!”
Again, pleading the fifth would have been the most respectful choice in this situation. What do you think about what he had to say about his comments on the show?
Shad Moss, AKA, Bow Wow, Kisses And Tells AGAIN; Speaks On Sex With Ciara And “Rev Run’s Daughter,” Angela Simmons
Bow Wow dropped his famous stage name and opted for his government name, Shad Moss, in order to be taken more seriously as a TV host (of 106 & Park), actor and businessman. But try as hard as he might, it’s what comes out of Bow Wow’s mouth that keeps people from taking him seriously. From saying that he makes his girlfriends famous, to kissing and telling about his exes on national TV, Bow Weezy just can’t get it right. For example, he shared a little too much on Wild ‘N Out recently when asked about the fellatio skills of two of his most famous exes. During a game of “Plead the Fif,” comedian B Daht asked an inappropriate question that the rapper should have known to plead the fifth to. However, he decided to answer anyway:
B Daht: “Who gives the best head? Ciara or Rev Run’s daughter?”
Nick Cannon: “You might want to plead on that one!”
[Crowd chants]: “We wanna know”
Bow Wow: “Well, at one time they both was my women correct? So if you put one and one together I mean, of course we must have been doing the do if they was my women, correct? Well, then I might as well go ‘head and keep it even, they both is might, mighty, mighty swell.”
Cannon: “I would’ve pleaded the fifth…”
How ironic that Nick Cannon of all people is telling Bow Wow to plead the fifth, but I guess he learned his lesson after he divulged too much information about sex with Mariah…
This isn’t the first time Bow Wow has talked a little too much about his famous exes. During an interview with The Breakfast Club back in 2012, he confirmed that he had slept with Ciara (as well Karrine Steffans, Dollicia Bryan and maybe even Kim Kardashian), but interesting enough, said at that time that he hadn’t had sexual relations with Simmons. I don’t know if he thinks all this oversharing will help with his credibility as a rapper, but it definitely helps with his image as something of a sleazeball.
