Future and Ciara are involved in more controversy.
Future appears to have reignited his long-running feud with his ex-fiancée Ciara over a controversial tweet this weekend.
The ‘Mask Off’ rapper, who settled a bitter custody battle with CiCi over their son last year, raised some eyebrows with his response to her #LevelUp tweet.
Ciara received an angry reaction from fans after she tweeted a sermon from John W. Gray III about marriage, alongside a caption reading: “#LevelUp”.
Some fans were angry that Ciara appeared to be sitting on a high horse and telling people how to approach their relationships, while others thought the sermon was shaming women who aren’t in heteronormative marriages.
Others savagely pointed to her failed relationship with Future, following rumours that he cheated on her.
Following the backlash, Ciara released an official statement on Instagram, explaining that she was at her “lowest moment” when she was a “single mom sitting at home” before finding God.
“That’s when I realised married or not married… I needed to love myself #LevelUp”.
After her response also received a lukewarm reception by some fans, Future added to drama with his own tweet, reading: “Make sense on social media. Great job."
