Ciara’s request for sole custody of her son was denied in a California court on Monday.
According to TMZ, the singer, who shares a 1-year-old son with rapper Future, reportedly attempted to damage the MC’s character, claiming he was not present in their son’s life. But the judge ruled against her, ordering that the two artists share joint custody of young Future Zahir Wilburn.
The former couple has been battling for months. Ciara filed a $15 million slander and libel lawsuit against Future for tweets and statements he’s made regarding her. He then countersued, but neither lawsuit has been resolved.
