Ciara is Fed Up With Future!!
Ciara is fed up trying to work out a travel schedule with Future for their son. So her legal team has filed docs asking the court to force Future to enter mediation. Ciara claims Future has not been keeping his appointments or will leave him with his mother or grandmother. If Future refuses mediation Ciara is prepared to take it to trial. I’m always curious as to how women expect a man who has six children with six different mothers to somehow be responsible with yours…you are not special!!!
