TMZ reports that earlier this morning, Ciara was denied sole custody of baby Future -- something she had been anticipating in conjunciton with her $15 million defamation suit. According to reports, Ciara claimed that Future is not a present parental figure in her son's life, and insisted that he's a bad person who could have a negative influence.
Future was present in the courtroom and asked for joint custody, which he received despite her claims.
Although California courts favor joint custody, it's a bit brutal to watch the end of this relationship (and subsequent friendship) play out in court. The defamation suit filed against Future is ongoing.
