If you thought Future was turning over a new leaf because he said he wanted to motivate and inspire men to be better, then you thought wrong. Because just days later, in promotion of his new album The WIZRD, he said some pretty disparaging words about both his ex-fiancee/mother of his child Ciara as well as her current husband Russell Wilson.

As we’ve reported, Future and Ciara have had a tense and strained relationship since the two called off their engagement and ended their relationship in 2015. While Ciara refuses to speak his name publicly, Future spilled some pretty intimate tea about the nature of both their relationship and breakup, in interviews and on wax. There were defamation lawsuits, lawsuits claiming that Future is not making time for his 4-year-old namesake during scheduled visitations and more. It’s been a mess.

And Future is showing no signs of slowing down. In an interview with Beats 1, when asked what he thought about Russell Wilson, Ciara’s husband, Future said, Wilson is being controlled by the “Level Up” singer.

“He do exactly what she tell him to do.”

Future suggested that the two flip the tables and have Wilson control Ciara.

“I don’t have no feelings for him. He not being a man in that position. He not tellin’ her, ‘Chill out with that on the internet. Don’t even talk to him. I’m your husband! You better not even bring Future’s name up!’ If that was me, she couldn’t even bring his name up. She know that. She couldn’t even bring her exes’ names up. I don’t care what they gave you […] Don’t bring they name up in interviews, don’t even be around them. Nothing. Don’t say nothing. Don’t give that s**t no energy. It’s about me, whatever. I take care of everything. I live by a different kind of rules.

“He think, ‘Oh, you should go to court.’ You better not show up for court. Sue him for what? I got money. I take care of him before you sue him. I take care of kids that ain’t mine now. I got money, n*gga you know I take care of my kid. It ain’t even that. You just want to nitpick and do certain things. You know I’m taking care of my kids. What’s the real issue?

You already been around my kid when y’all start going together and when y’all first posted the first picture and you haven’t even talked to me. And then y’all get married, and she was like, ‘I want you to meet Russell now.’ Y’all done already did all the damage. I don’t want to meet him now, now that y’all done all the damage. You was supposed to have met him before you brought the kid around him. I ain’t trying to be around your kids, I don’t know your baby daddy. I’m not saying nothing to them, all due respect. My love is for you and through me loving you, I love your kids but at the end of the day, I have no say so. I can’t! Because he have a daddy. Not only do he have a daddy, his daddy is in the public.”

But he did have some positive things to say in reference to Wilson teaching little Future how to play football.

“Even when they be saying the football thing, why wouldn’t I want a championship player coaching my son? That’s my son. I want the best for my son. Why wouldn’t I do that? He coaching him. I don’t look at it like a negative situation. I want him to see that. Why would I want to take that away from him? It’s just about how you maneuver when you doing it. That’s a beautiful thing.”

I don’t have much for Future. Because he’s proven that he doesn’t really care about women or their feelings, including the women with whom he’s chosen to have children. While he can say he wants the best for son in athletic training, he doesn’t think about what’s best for his son in terms of speaking about his mother and stepfather in the public eye. I don’t know the type of environment where Future was raised, but what type of rules did they have where speaking about family for the media was ok?

Even if he didn’t see that and couldn’t have prepared for his life to take this type of turn, he should be mature enough to appreciate the fact that Russell doesn’t tell Ciara what to do when it comes to how she’ll raise and fight for her child. While he suggests that Wilson is not a man in certain situations, there are some things he could stand to learn from him about being one.
