Ciara Reportedly Denied Full Custody Over Her Son with Future

Ciara’s plea in court did not hold up with the judge.

The “Promise” singer arrived to court on Monday (May 17) to ask for sole custody over her 1-year-old son with Future, bashing her former partner for not being a present figure in baby Future Zahir’s life. TMZ reports that Future, instead, requested joint custody and that the judge ruled in his favor, rejecting Ciara’s arguments. This decision falls in line with California’s legal patterns, which tend to favor joint custody.

Ciara recently filed a $15 million defamation lawsuit against her child’s father. Watch her departure from court in the video embedded below.
