Pay Up! Future’s Checks Garnished For Back Child Support + Has He Broken Up With Ciara?
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.

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?
