According to reports, CiCi has decided to fall back on suing Future on a libel claim.
Ciara’s lawyer, Larry Stein, just filed legal docs dismissing the remaining libel claim she filed after her ex said some choice things about her, including, “This b*tch got control problems.” Problem is … to win a defamation lawsuit, you have to prove you’ve suffered financially, and Ciara is actually making more money now than before Future talked smack on her. So she’s dropped the libel claim — the judge already dismissed a separate defamation claim — but the case isn’t over. (TMZ)
Last month, Future allegedly took shots at the crooner with his “How It Feel” song.
Produced by Mike WiLL Made It, Future seemingly goes in on his famous muse, rapping, “ask me how it feel to smash an R&B sh*t,” before crediting himself with turning Ciara into a star again. “I made you b*tch,” he raps in the song’s outro, “b*tch you was never for me, I gave you fame on the ‘Gram. I put you back on the charts, I gave you number 1 spot.” (UPROXX)

Lyric-decoding website Genius.com believed “How It Feel” intentionally went at CiCi.
Separate reports claimed Future previously went at the now-married singer in a public interview.
Future shared the same sentiment in his Like I Never Left documentary following his break up with the R&B singer back in 2015. Just not as harshly. During a convo about their issues, Future noted, “[Ciara] didn’t want [me and Mike Will] to be a part of [her album] at first,” he said. “I was like, ‘damn, we just came off a No. 1 and you go straight to Dr. Luke and start working with him an go right back to the pop lane after you get a little steam.’” (XXL Mag)
