Ciara drops defamation lawsuit against Future

R&B star Ciara has withdrawn a defamation lawsuit against her ex-boyfriend Future due to her increased earning power.

The Goodies singer launched a $15 million (£12.3 million) defamation lawsuit against her ex in February (16), accusing him of damaging her reputation by knowingly making false and defamatory statements about her parenting of their two-year-old son Future Zahir online.

According to editors at TMZ.com, the 30-year-old singer's lawyer Larry Stein has filed legal documents withdrawing the claim.

The gossip site reports that the reason she has withdrawn the defamation suit is that she is earning more now than when Future made the alleged remarks and in U.S. law in order to win a defamation suit a plaintiff must show they have suffered financial damage.

She is still suing her ex on the grounds of 'false light', a legal term referring to a person's right not to have their reputation wrongly portrayed in public. Proving a false light suit would not require Ciara to show she had been financially harmed by Future's alleged comments.

Last week (end14Oct16) a judge dismissed an additional libel claim from the musician, alleging Future had made "controlling, dishonest, malicious, unreasonable, evil, (and) conniving" comments on Twitter.

Ciara had claimed the Twitter posts cost her a $500,000 (£409,900) endorsement contract with an international cosmetics company, but the judge determined the posts were too weak to use as evidence of defamation.

Future had initially filed a countersuit contesting Ciara's accusations, but he dropped the action in June (16).

Ciara, who married American football star Russell Wilson earlier this year (16), broke off her engagement to the rapper, 32, real name Nayvadius Wilburn, in August, 2014, three months after the birth of their son.
