Ciara and Future Headed for Joint Custody

Looks like Ciara won’t be able to get rid of Future as easily as she thought.

The singer and mother of Future’s 4th child has been lobbying for sole custody of their child for months now. Not to mention the defamation suit in an excess of $15 million that she hit her ex with for refusing to keep her name out of his mouth and off of social media.

Despite the fact that Future has been consistently running his mouth about Ciara and accusing her of being a bad mother TMZ is reporting that a judge doesn’t seem to be too much on Ciara’s side when it comes to the welfare of Future Jr.

“Sources connected to the former couple say Ciara showed up in court asking for sole custody of their 1-year-old son, baby Future. She claimed Future was a bad parent who was not present in the child’s life. We’re told she and her lawyer also trash talked Future to the judge, saying he was a bad person.

For his part, Future showed up and asked for joint custody, and the judge was squarely on his side, rejecting her arguments.”

Future has been pretty consistent about suggesting that Ciara is just trying to keep him away from his son and we know he’s no fan of Ciara’s fiancé Russell Wilson, but it looks like everyone could be seeing more of each other.

TMZ points out that in California judges tend to lean towards joint custody in general, but joint custody doesn’t men shared time. All a joint custody ruling would mean is that both parents play an equal part in determining the welfare of the child.

So technically baby Future could be living with Ciara around the clock but she may not be allowed to move a certain distance away from Future.

Somehow it seems doubtful that Future will be very accommodating with his demands, because yes he really just does seem petty like that.

Do you think Future and Ciara will make it work for the sake of their child? Sound off!
