As if we didn’t see this coming…
If you recall, CiCi was suing her ex after he posted what she felt were defamatory comments about her online (click HERE if you missed that).
Well, it seems that Ciara may be ready to concede defeat after a judge ruled that her defamation suit had no merit.
You may have heard by now that Ciara just landed a huge contract with Revlon to be their global ambassador (click HERE if you missed that).
Well, apparently Ciara’s good fortune has marred her defamation lawsuit since she can’t actually prove that she’s LOSING money because of what Future has said about her.
[Sidebar: Future also filed a counter-claim citing defamation also, but he dismissed his a while ago (click HERE if you missed that)]
In Ciara’s lawsuit, she claimed that her ex damaged her public image by writing foul-mouthed tirades against her on Twitter, but a judge ruled last week that the tweets were not enough to prove the 30-year-old singer’s image had been damaged.
The suit continues and Ciara has to provide further evidence of her defamation claims, however according to TMZ, Ciara’s lawyer, Larry Stein, just filed to dismiss her remaining claims for libel
Just FYI: Libel is a written or published defamatory statement, while slander is defamation that is spoken by the defendant.
Future wrote several disparaging remarks about his baby mama online (which you can read HERE), Future said in his response that when he called Ciara a “bitch” it meant overbearing, complaining or unpleasant… not a lewd or immoral woman as she claims in her suit.
So Ciara’s now dropped the libel claim — the judge already dismissed a separate defamation claim — but the case isn’t over.
But wait…. it’s still not over.
Ciara is is still suing Future for what’s called “false light” … alleging Future has made her look like someone she’s not. Proving false light does not require a showing she’s lost income. She could get money just for the heartache of it all.
Interesting that Ciara’s still continuing with the case. They both said a lot about each other in the public but whatever… I guess people deal with their feelings they way they see fit.
