Since we first announced that Future and Ciara were breaking up, we’ve heard all types of stories about the ending of their relationship. But few of them have been from either Future or Ciara’s mouths. Well, in a recent interview with Marc Lamont Hill for Huff Post Live, the rapper opened up about what caused their breakup, rumors about him being a deadbeat dad and praying with Ciara…after sex.
How their relationship ended…
Everybody already had their speculations. I see a lot of people say he cheated, he cheated. Because, I feel like, 95 percent of relationships end with cheating. But me and her relationship had nothing to do with cheating. I feel like we were just growing away from each other and we grew apart. And it’s just so much dealing with–when you’re in a relationship and you the man and you want to make certain decisions for yourself and she want to make certain decisions. And I feel like the best route for me is to make more music, to go back to Atlanta, to go back to my roots, for my family. Like when you a man you want to make decisions for your family, sometimes the lady don’t see what you see.
The engagement had been called off. I called it off way before any cheating rumors.
Was it mutual?
I said it wasn’t going to work.
How did she respond?
She didn’t say cool but she wasn’t too mad because I explained it to her how it was. I was like ‘I’ll marry you today. You want to get married, let’s get married. But I’m not getting married with all these different people in my wedding. My family have to be there. I’m from the hood, hood people going to be there. It might be people that you don’t like that’s going to be there. But I know they love me, they got my best interest. I don’t want nobody from the industry there, I don’t want the media there. You know how girls have their fairy tale weddings, this how they pick it.
I was like we can do that and we can do it a year from now and then we can announce it like we’re just getting married. But we been together for a year, to get over that year hump. I didn’t want to get all the negative energy because I’m an artist. So soon as I get married and I go in the strip club, they’re going to be like ‘Ciara’s husband is in the strip club!’ They going always put something on it. They’re going to have a story to tell and I don’t want that headline story. So just to keep the people out our business and keep it personal, let’s just get married now and tell them a year from now. By the time we announce it and get married on tv, we done went past the hard part. We’re on our second year. We done worked on our marriage for a whole year and she probably didn’t understand that at that time.
