By now, everyone is probably aware that R&B singer Ciara is dating NFL star Russell Wilson. And by now, most people have seen Ciara and her new boyfriend photographed out and about with her 1-year-old son that she shares with her ex-fiancé Future..
In a recent interview with XXL magazine, Future opened up about Wilson playing a visible role in child’s life.
I’m cool with him being around him but certain situations, we all in the public eye, you can’t move around with my son a certain kind of way, you know what I’m saying? I feel like a lot of moves are just made out of just being evil, basically. Because, you know, the success of my album and you still want to make certain moves to take the spotlight off me a little bit and shed light on a negative situation. Why would you want to put light on a negative situation? Even if I didn’t care about it, the people have a way of looking at it. Why would you want to give these people an opinion on our kid? Why won’t we just let our child be a child?
Future also added that he wants to be informed about basically any adult who’s around his son.
“I want to be able to judge him for myself,” he added. “I want to judge the nannies that’s around my child. I don’t want to pay for a nanny that I never met, that I never got a chance to interview. That’s not the life I want for my child. I want to be involved 100 percent in all decisions made. This my flesh and blood.”
“If I don’t want him to do something, there’s supposed to [be a] compromise or we supposed to talk about it,” he added. “You not supposed to just go behind my back and do it. This is my son, too.”
Ciara weighed in on Future’s past parenting criticism during an August interview with CBS This Morning.
“I think in a sense, it’s a bit of a double standard,” she said of the criticisms leveled at her boyfriend Wilson.
“People are going to talk about me. I was built for this, this is what I’m supposed to be doing,” she said. “But when it comes to your child, it’s something I don’t take lightly. At the end of the day, my son will be the one that’s affected the most out of this. I think people have to think about that versus just shouting out things.”
