The singer made her feelings clear.

Things got very awkward when Ciara refused to say her ex-fiancee Future’s name while announcing the Best Rap Artist nominees for the upcoming Billboard Music Awards.

The singer, who is currently suing Future for $15m, went very quiet when his name was announced – forcing co-host Ludacris to fill in the blank live on 'Good Morning America'. 

Watch below: 

Other nominees for Best Rap Artist include Drake, Fetty Wap, Wiz Khalifa and Silento.

Future and Ciara have had an increasingly rocky relationship since they called off their engagement in August 2014.

The pair have a 1-year-old son together called Future.

However Ciara has since moved on from their relationship and is now engaged to NFL quarterback Russell Wilson.

Ludacris and Ciara as set to host the Billboard Music Awards together on 22nd May, which will take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

What will happen in Future actually wins the award?!
