R&B singer Ciara’s ex Future got some hefty first week sales for his latest studio album, and while he does have a loyal fan base, some of Ciara’s fans seem to think him talking about her in his latest interviews helped his numbers.
Now Page Six is claiming sources close to Ciara agree.
Page Six writes:
A source tells us the rapper keeps talking about his ex and baby’s mother in interviews to help sell his album “DS2.”
“It’s definitely a part of the plan. When they split up, everyone hated him because he cheated. He’s been painting her as this diva and villain to make himself look better and to take the heat off of him cheating,” says the source.
And although he tweeted “I wish I cared,” when news broke that Ciara was dating Russell Wilson, our source says, “This is his way of retaliating because everyone loves her new relationship.”
A source close to Ciara says, “She’s not even thinking about him. She’s focused on her child and providing as a single mother.”
