Ciara has been the subject of slanderous memes, tweets, and Facebook statuses written by angry men ever since Future publicly slammed the “I Bet” singer for introducing their son to her new boyfriend, Russell Wilson. During her Tuesday appearance on CBS Morning News, the single mom addressed both her critics and her ex-fiancé.
“It’s been very interesting to hear what a lot of guys have to say. I feel like in a sense, it’s a double standard because when we were together, I took care of his kids as well in our relationship,” she explained.
Ciara went on to say that Future barely wasted any time before he introduced her to his four children.
“I was involved very early in the stages of us getting to know each other. It’s become a big conversation, but it’s like, what’s the difference here? Even with the men who are outspoken, it’s like, wouldn’t you want someone to love on the child that you’re speaking about? And more than anything, it’s a child we’re talking about. That’s the thing I think that people have to think about. We’re all adults in this situation, but this is my child. That’s serious.”
It’s not surprising that the singer is frustrated by all of the backlash, but what bothers her the most is that her 1-year-old is at the center of the controversy.
“People are going to talk about me. That’s fine. I’m built for this. People are going to talk about you all the time. That’s what comes with this, but when it comes to your child, it’s something I don’t take lightly. At the end of the day, my son will be the one affected the most by this. That’s what people have to think about instead of kind of like shouting out things.”
“To speak on such a sensitive and real situation when you don’t have all of the facts is a big part of the frustrating part of it all. It’s just like, us adults will be fine. My son has to grow up.”
Before moving on to another subject, the 30-year-old also set the record straight regarding the steps that she took before introducing the tot to her new partner. Apparently, she reached out to her ex to give him a heads up, and so that they could discuss the situation like adults; however, she insists that he refused to talk.
“To the guys who have such an opinion: know your facts. I reached out to my son’s father for him and Russell to speak, and he didn’t want to talk to me. We didn’t get to talk and so that was that. I don’t know what more they would expect for me to do besides to live my life.”
Considering how quickly Future introduced Ci to his children, does he really have the right to be upset now that the tables have turned?
