News: Future Fights For His Son, Goes To War W/ Baby Mama
Friday, Jul 5, 2013 2:54PM
Atlanta rapper Future is reportedly going to legal war with an ex-girlfriend in hopes of avoiding increased child support payments and gaining more time with his ten-year-old son.
Details on the latest dispute between Future and ex-wifey Jessica Smith surfaced online Friday (July 5).
Not only does rapper Future want a judge to keep his child support payments in the present and shoot down his baby mama's request for more cash ... he wants MORE custody of his son, TMZ has learned. As TMZ first reported, Future (real name Nayvadius Cash) and baby mama Jessica Smith hammered out a child support agreement after a DNA test proved Future was the daddy of Smith's 10-year-old boy. But Smith came back a short while later demanding more money because she felt Future lied about how much money he makes. (TMZ)
The rapper has also cited a few incidents in hopes of having more custody.
But in court docs filed last month in Georgia, Future says he financials are all on the up and up and Smith should not receive a penny more in support. He claims that Smith's attempt to use comments he's made in the press -- specifically the one where he claims he always has $25,000 on him at all times -- can't be used as part of the custody battle. In addition to blocking Smith's play for more money, Future is now angling for more custody. He claims Smith took their son out of school (after Future paid non-refundable tuition) without his permission and has "failed to deliver the minor child to school for unreasonable periods of time and/or delivered the child to school in tardy fashion." Future is seeking joint physical custody and wants Smith to pay his attorney's fees. A judge has yet to rule. (TMZ)
Aside from the baby mama drama, the Southern hip-hop artist recently confirmed his romance with fellow musician Ciara.
"She's amazing, incredible, everything that comes along with those words. I could tell you all the negativity that comes along with me and her is not true because our personal life is our personal life. Sometimes present and think it's true like they have facts but at the end of the day we know what's true and we know what's not true and anything negative from that situation, eh man, we're not even representing that. What you see is what you get." (Poster Child)
Over the winter, the hip-hop couple were spotted together in California.
Fresh from her European promo tour, Ciara was spotted back at her favorite restaurant, Crustacean, in Beverly Hills with her favorite man, Future, on Monday. The rumored couple exited together, smiling for fans and photographers, as they made their way to the valet. (Rap-Up)
