Well it's official.
Over the past few months, there has been speculation that Ciara and Future were no longer together, and now US Weekly has confirmed that yes, the two are over.
According to the mag, Ciara has ended her 10-month engagement and two-year relationship to the Honest rapper/singer over cheating allegations. Speaking with sources close to the former couple, they say Ciara is "devastated" and that she's now focused on raising their baby.
She's also back on her grind in the studio and making television appearances as well.
Meanwhile, just last month, Ciara covered Brides Magazine, and it seems as though she dropped a few hints that there was trouble in paradise during her emotional behind-the-scenes interview (filmed months beforehand.)
While revealing how Future first stole her heart by being so sweet and gentle, she started to cry while explaining:
With love, I was kinda like, ‘You know what? I’m gonna really close that door off and if something hits me then it just has to hit me.’
The conversation was amazing and we [were] just talking and he was so sweet and he was so gentle. I don’t know why I’m getting emotional. He was just really, really a sweetheart. So either way…I don’t know why I’m getting emotional right now.
I wasn’t looking at him for that part of life. Like, I wasn’t looking at him to look for love. Just like meeting an amazing person, we’re gonna work together, have a good time. But I had a double take at one point in time and I was like, ‘This guy is really handsome. He’s really cute. He’s really tall!’ You don’t know what to expect when you meet somebody...’
Her emotions in the interview came across as though she was a little hurt versus happy, however she was still wearing her engagement ring at the time.
It's unfortunate that this relationship did not work out with some folks feeling as though it was doomed from the start.
Dr. Boyce Watkins (a former professor at Syracuse University who is currently promoting the book "Financial Lovemaking") wrote an interesting article last week listing four reasons why he felt the relationship was doomed from Day 1, and he revealed:
1) If a man has three baby’s mamas when he meets you, there’s a good chance that you’re going to be baby mama number 4
2) There are patterns to every person’s past and it’s up to you whether you’re going to see them or not
3) Men with a lot of kids are almost always going to be broke:
4) If a man raps about all the women he’s been with, dealing drugs and screwing up his life, there is a chance that he might really “be about that life.”
But change is possible, right? And should we judge a person on their past? Unfortunately, the news of the couple splitting proved a few of his points to be right.
As far as the cheating rumors, there are whispers that Future may have been cheating on Ciara with a woman he claimed was his stylist. SMH!
She will definitely bounce back from this.
