Ciara is fed up with Future's attacks on her and her relationship with Seattle Seahawks player Russell Wilson. The "Dance Like We're Making Love" singer is firing back, and this time she's got the law on her side.

According to a report from TMZ, Ciara, 30, has filed a lawsuit against her former fiancé in response to his recently comments on social media and in radio interviews. She is suing him for slander and libel and demanding that he keep their private matters just that— private. TMZ reports that Ciara referenced a specific interview in which Future, 32, discussed a photo of Wilson pushing baby Future in a stroller. The "Stick Talk" rapper accused his ex of setting the star quarterback up. Future also told the show's host that he has been asked to pay Ciara $15,000 in child support each month. In her lawsuit Ciara has asked that Future delete all tweets referencing her, her new boyfriend or the son she and Future share. She also wants him to stop talking about their situation publicly.

As was reported on Jan. 6 by People magazine, sources have come forward claiming Future's negativity is a result of jealousy. According to the publication, Ciara believes Future is using his social media outbursts as publicity for his music. The source said "he is jealous" that his former fianceé has found love again after leaving him in 2014. In fact, People's source alleges that Future told Ciara he is hopeful that "she fails in everything." It was also reported that the rapper's claims that he pays $15,000 in child support are untrue.

The feud began on Jan. 4 when Future took to Twitter to air out his grievances with Ciara. He shared with his 2.21 million followers his feeling that Ciara was having issues with her lack of control over their situation, adding that he has been forced to go through lawyers to see his son. Future claimed that all he wanted was to have visitation with baby Future without jumping through hoops, telling followers he had been silent for far too long. Ciara did not publicly respond to Future's allegations.
