Ever since Future’s child support drama has come to the public light, we’ve been struggling to keep track of just how many babies and baby mamas he has and apparently the confusion is starting to annoy the rapper. After the pic above went viral last week showing Future’s fiancée Ciara making nice with the mothers of his children, people started asking again, so just how many baby mamas does Future have? And after people started rolling with the number five, Future decided he’d had enough of the rumors and wanted to clear the record himself. Necole Bitchie caught his interview with Atlanta’s Streetz 94.5 radio in which he gave them the background on this pic and his family situation. He told them:
My sister, she took a picture with my kid’s mother. My sister was in the picture and [they said], ‘It’s one of his five baby mamas.’ Everybody thinks I got five baby mamas. [I have] three.
I have three kids. My son, he’s eleven. My little girl, she’s four. I have a one-year-old. My boy Prince.
Thank God he cleared that up. We wouldn’t want people thinking he had five baby mamas when he only has three. (Note sarcasm)
On a lighter note, though, Future did have some sweet things to say about Ciara and how she’s getting along with the mothers of his children. He told the Russ Parr Morning Show what he loves most about Ciara is her genuine heart. He said:
“Even with being at the concert yesterday, I had my kids, I had my kids’ moms and she just catered to everybody. Just showing everyone hospitality. I mean you can’t get a girl that just gets along with your kids’ moms and get along with your mom that can just mingle with your family and bring everybody together and just want that to happen.
“Sometimes they just want to beef and bring or split everybody apart. But she’s the kind of person [who] wants everyone in the same room.
“That’s a real woman. You call the kids and you check up on them. We’ll bring them over and [you] want to spend time with them. Sometimes when you already have kids before you’re in a relationship, a girl that just like despises your kids don’t even want them around. They jealous of your kids. She never showed that trait.”
Looks like he found a winner. Do you think Ciara found the same?
Perhaps once you reach a certain level, it is somewhat expected that you don’t have love for some of the outlets that helped you get there. However, when you’re on the middle, not quite there yet level like Ciara, you might want to choose your words a bit more carefully.
A few days ago, we showed you pictures of Ciara with two of the three women who have children by her soon-to-be husband, Future. Many of the blogs picked up on it and they, along with many of the people who commented on the photos, had a couple of jokes about them now being “all in the family.”
But Ciara decided it was time to make her own joke, this time directed at the blogs who, despite what she may believe, continue to help her stay relevant. Late Friday afternoon, she tweeted:
I guess she told us, huh? Sure, there are times when blogs take things too far (many of you would say we do that from time to time as well) but more often than not, everyone wants to see Ciara win in her career. Once can only assume that by “ghetto blogs,” she meant the urban (read: black) blogs because they are the only ones who’ve even talked about her relationship.
Ciara, here at Madame Noire we wish you well. But don’t bite the hand that continues to help feed you.
Who said the wife-to-be and the mother of a man’s child can’t get along? Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith’s ex-wife could do it, and now Ciara is trying to get close and cool with two of the mothers of Future’s kids, Brittni Mealy and India J. Earlier in the year Future was at battle with Mealy and his another mother of one of his kids named Jessica Smith because they were seeking more child support for their kids. After Mealy heard an interview with Future calling his “baby mamas” lazy, she went on a long Twitter rant and things got even uglier. But as you can see, all bad blood has ceased for now–or at least doesn’t involve Ci Ci–as the women (including Future’s sister Tia) were all smile and got close during Future’s appearance at Drake’s “Would You Like a Tour?” tour. Mealy even brought along her son with the rapper.
Seeing as how Ciara will possibly be in Future’s life for the long-term, she will have to interact with all of these ladies (there are at least three…), along with the kids they have with the rapper (and whether she wants to admit it or not, the world knows she has her own baby Future in the oven already). She posted both of the photos here with the following captions:
#Funtimes #Family #Love
#MyFamily. @indiajai. @tia_treon. @thebrittni. #Honest #Love
I applaud her for being so mature, because too many people try to avoid the mother of their man’s children like the plague. But if you can get along, why not try?
Check out more pictures of the women together below. Mealy is in the white hat, while India J is in the far left of most pictures. Future’s sister, of course, is in the middle with the braids. U-N-I-T-YYYYYYYY.
Unlike fellow bride-to-be Kim Kardashian, it looks like Ciara is already checking out potential wedding dates. During a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, the newly engaged “Body Party” singer discussed wedding plans.
“It’s going to be around next year because he’s on tour now and I’m finishing up stuff. We wanted it to be at the best time. I just know I don’t want it to be when it’s super hot. I don’t want everyone to be burning up at the wedding. I want the perfect weather. There’s probably going to be two parts to it because we have so much family in Atlanta, but I like the sun. I like the exotic places in the world, you know?” she said.
The blushing bride-to-be also gushed about how it feels to be getting married.
“It feels so good. What’s so funny is, I was thinking about my life as a woman and all that’s happened to me and the things I’ve been through as a woman. It feels so great to be with someone who’s like, your best friend. I can almost cry talking about it now because every time I think about it, it really kicks in, but I feel so happy. I really do.”
She went on to say that she’s happy to call Future her fiancé.
“I’m just very proud. I think I just like being able to say ‘my fiancé.’ Not my boyfriend. It’s not just that word you toss around. That’s my fiancé! I love it. It feels so good.”
Famous people do everything bigger and celebrity engagement rings are no exception! Beyonce said “Put a ring on it” and the fellas lined up, with their wallets of course. Engagements are a symbol of love and commitment, but they can be costly, ranging from $70,000 to $5 million if you’re a celebrity. Check out 15 celebs who literally have million dollar homes on their ring fingers.
Future knew what he was doing when he chose a beautiful 15-carat emerald cut diamond ring by Avianne & Co for Ciara. Yes, she had the birthday celebration that many girls dream of. Her man got on one knee in front of everyone to pop the question with a three-stone cut ring made of flawless diamonds with a price tag of $1 million to 1.5 million.
Is Ciara trying to hide another part of her “future?” Was that really corny? Okay, then let’s just get to the good stuff.
There’s a good chance that singer Ciara and hr fianceé, Future, are expecting a baby. Now, Ciara hasn’t done an interview in a while so no one has had the chance to ask her, but Future recently did an interview and when asked he said, “A rumor is just a rumor.” That vague of an answer definitely fueled the rumor mill even more.
The singer performed in Abu Dhabi on Friday and based on the pictures, she’s definitely looking a bit more “full” in her midsection. Her pharaoh head top was a great choice for a cover-up, but the way it tugged around her stomach has many wondering what’s going on. We’re used to Cici showing off that rocking body, wearing as little on top as possible so we can see her abs. Now, we know that sometimes, when you go out of the country, there are often certain rules that need to be respected and followed, so maybe it was inappropriate to dress like that for her performance.
But a couple of weeks ago, while performing in New York, Ciara wore another outfit that immediately set off alerts. She wore all black, but because her top was leather, it seemed to stick to her a little more…and outlined her stomach. She looked very round and according to people at the show, she kept touching her “belly.” There allegedly wasn’t much dropping it like it’s hot and a Ciara performance is not a Ciara performance without popping and dropping.
Of course, it could be a little love weight (some of us get real comfortable when we’re not out in those dating streets anymore). She’s very taken by Future and they might be ready to add another child into the mix (he already has two children with two other women, including a 10 month old). Either way, love – and maybe pregnancy – has given Ciara quite a glow we haven’t seen in a while from her.
We’ll see how long she makes us keep her on pregnancy watch. What do you think? Is there a baby on board?
At the start of this week, we told you about Future’s romantic proposal to girlfriend, Ciara, which occurred at her 28th birthday bash in New York City. The newly engaged couple recently sat down with MTV News to discuss how it all went down.
“I felt different [being engaged], but it’s great. It’s a great situation and I’m happy about it. I’m excited about it. I know she’s super happy. I feel good to be able to make someone happy,” Future expressed.
He went on to reveal that he has been planning to propose to CiCi for awhile now, and that he was just waiting for the right moment.
“Yeah, she was definitely surprised. I’ve been planning it for a minute too. I well thought about the ring. I was just taking my time with it. I wanted it to be special for her.”
Ciara also dished on the relationship, revealing why she decided to take a chance and go public with this relationship after having negative past experiences.
“You know what it is, I’ve had my experience over the years and I’ve been able to learn a lot. When you do step outside, you put yourself in a position where people are gonna be able to judge and they can criticize and they can give their opinions. That’s something I used to always fear,” CiCi said.
Thankfully, the “Body Party” singer says that she has found a way to overcome those fears.
“I’m kind of in a place where I’m facing my fears. I’m running towards my fears. I’m running towards the things that make me uncomfortable because I feel like, if I live my life based off of those things, I won’t live my life the way that I’m supposed to and I won’t live it to the fullest. I feel like you really have to live your life for you.”
The bride-to-be adds that Future has made her comfortable enough to take that leap of faith.
“That’s where I am at this day and time in my life. And I’m with someone who makes me extremely comfortable to feel that way, which is really important. And the way he makes me feel is like, ‘Why Not?’ If you love somebody, you should express it. And now I understand that. Before I’m thinking I’m trying to protect it, but realizing that I’m really only making it more complicated or I’m really only harming the situation. There’s nothing s*xy about hiding your love. There’s nothing s*xy about people not acknowledging each other. There’s a lot of stuff that I’ve learned and it feels so good to be free in that.”
How sweet! It’s hard to not be happy for them.

That’s all I’m saying after checking out Ciara’s fat 15-carat engagement ring from her new fiancé, Future. And we mean FAT! The thing covers a majority of that baby’s lower index finger! The singer looked absolutely radiant despite being makeup-free when she had her picture snapped with her new ring. The image was exclusive to E! News and shows Ci Ci, hand in the air, mouth wide open and excited, letting the haters know a fella named Nayvadius put a ring on it.
The ring is made from Avianne & Co., and it’s definitely helped Ciara bring in her 28th year of life right. You can catch a closer glimpse at the sparkler below, but be careful, because you could go blind. Future gave Ci Ci the ring this past weekend, her birthday weekend, and her response (which didn’t directly speak on the engagement) was this according to her Twitter account:
“Today Has 2 Be Like One Of The Sweetest Days Of My Life! #TheBestBirthdayEver
If I’m Dreaming I Don’t Want To Wake Up..Aaaaaahhh!!!”
This is clearly the year for the fellas to go big or go home when it comes to engagement rings. Of course, Kanye West picked out a 15-carat stunner for Kim Kardashian (Ciara’s friend) when he popped the question last week, and Future clearly has similar good taste.
I’m so happy for Ciara, you would think she was a close girlfriend. But the beauty has been the happiest we have seen her in years and they both seem head over heels for each other, so why not? Congratulations once again to the couple! Now, if the pregnancy rumors are true, she might just be having the best year ever…
It looks like Ciara had a pretty exciting weekend. Not only did the “Body Party” singer celebrate her 28th birthday, but her rapper-producer boyfriend, Future, proposed to her with a 15-carat ring, the AP reports.
According to the couple’s publicist, Chris Chambers, Future popped the question during CiCi’s birthday celebration in New York City last night. In no time, the blushing bride-to-be took to Twitter to express her excitement and shock regarding the surprise proposal.
Although CiCi may have been shocked by her boo boo’s ultimate expression of love, most of us could’ve predicted that a proposal was in the works. Back in August the “Never End” rapper told Hot97′s Angie Martinez that Ciara was definitely the one.
“It wasn’t like I met her and everything stopped…It’s crazy, me and my brother Rocko we was riding. It had to be like seven years ago…and she was shooting a video on the curb. I was like, ‘Dang, she look good. I’ma have her one day.’He was like ‘Man, stop and say something to her.’ I said ‘Naw I ain’t gonna say nothing to her, but I’ma be with her one day.’ That was seven years ago and I was saying that and it ended up happening”
“This the one. Like I said, I said it before…seven years ago, so for it to come around and happen, it was just meant to be,” he said.
So far no date has been set, but we’ll definitely keep you all posted!
Has anyone else noticed that when it comes to today’s R&B singer, people only speak on Beyoncé and Rihanna? And when they do, a majority of the time, it’s to have a debate about which diva is better. Somebody has to be ‘on top.’ In the year 2013, women in the R&B game (if not all of music) can’t seem to co-exist to fans; they have to be at the top, or they need to find a new job. Only one can be the head you-know-what in charge, and it’s not based on actual talent anymore, but who sells the most songs, albums and tickets for their tour, and who has a wealth of outside projects bringing them money. Being a successful brand has trumped being an-all around gifted singer/musician. It absolutely sucks.
I miss the days when singers and female rappers hopped on each other’s tracks. I miss when they made cameos in each other’s videos. I miss when they could show the world their talent and sell records with their clothes on, and in the case of someone like Aaliyah, with baggy clothes on at that. And most of all, I miss the days of R&B singers actually dropping R&B tracks and not going completely pop and electronic dance to sell some singles. The day of the talented R&B singer and her soulful music has shifted drastically, and instead of showing solidarity, half of the time, folks are beefing with each other on Twitter over frivolous drama. It’s sad when you consider the bevvy of singers that were around making moves in the ’80s and ’90s by themselves and in groups.
This realization came, not after watching yet another twerk-filled video, but after having a conversation with a co-worker who came to the conclusion that the R&B game is getting smaller and weaker. We were talking about a particular artist who despite some light buzz, still hadn’t had an album released by her label, and was somewhat “famous” for just being seen. My colleague wound up saying, “I just don’t care about R&B singers anymore,” and that kind of made me sad.
In my mind, I thought about how geeked up folks would get about a new Mary J album back in the day. I thought about people’s excitement over Jill Scott and her sound, singing in unison “I’m getting tiiiiiired of yo s**t” to Erykah Badu, blasting Lauryn Hill (though she was also Hip-Hop), jamming to Zhané, dancing to a Janet track, trying to do the Toni voice, and cooling out to Sade. Now, as previously stated, it’s either Bey or Rih. Anybody else gets limited love because for one, everybody’s trying to do MORE than just sing (they want to be on TV and act and take forever to put out new albums). It’s also because we, the media, give a majority of shine to the women only on top, and also because these big names won’t take a break from the spotlight because of fears of fading out of importance and getting a tad bit irrelevant. How long was Bey really on maternity leave? And I think we’ve all come to expect an album a year from Rihanna (she’s got three months left to drop something).
But another big part of it is that the singers looking for shine are lacking star power. They might be able to sing their behinds off, but their label won’t drop their album and would rather let them resort to mixtape after mixtape because they don’t have the “It” factor that singers from back in the day had. Most R&B singers and female lyricists had their own unique style and sound years ago (though in the ’80s everybody and their mom had to do big curly hair). Today, everyone looks the same (you either have a cascading weave or a short cut shaved on the sides with a lot of hair at the crown), everyone’s dressing the same and then blaming each other for stealing old styles, and the tracks don’t necessarily stand out (everybody’s writing angry love songs or boring ones). So the women, in turn, don’t stand out.
Aside from gifted singers who don’t receive as much shine as they should (Janelle Monae, Elle Varner, Melanie Fiona, etc.), R&B is on struggle mode. And if it wasn’t hard enough, some folks doing well who should be considered R&B are trying to act like they’re more rock or dance so they won’t be stuck in a box. The sound has changed with the times, and I don’t know about you, but I’m not all that impressed. I want that old thing back…
