Court filings mention threats to Russell Wilson’s life

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is engaged to a signer named Ciara, who has a child with a rapper named Future. Ciara has sued Future for defamation after he publicly called her a bad mother. Now, in court filings recently made by Ciara, she suggests that Future has threatened to kill Wilson.

Via TMZ, Ciara’s lawyers mention in the documents a social-media posting by Future with a pair of football emojis followed by three gun emojis. The lawyers also point out a recent song from Future with these lyrics: “Try’na f–k my baby mama, dog what’s up with you? You gon’ make me get that heat, I’m pulling up on you.”

The filing also refers to Future’s behavior as “frightening and “socially irresponsible,” and points to a “recent rash of gun violence.”

While not directly relevant to the question of whether Future made untrue statements about Ciara that violate civil liability standards, as a public figure Ciara needs to prove that Future made untrue statements with malice. Threatening to kill the man she’s currently engaged to would potentially count as evidence of malice.

It’s an odd mess for Wilson to find himself in the middle of, given the carefully manicured image that he has developed over the years. That could be the least of Wilson’s worries, however, especially if the ongoing litigations and public allegations inflame the situation even more.

  1. The loser doesn’t like it that RW is a better father to the kid. I’m sure Future will use the South Park Saddam Hussein defense: “C’mon guy!”

  2. Thanks to skin fortified by nanobubbles, he could take an RPG round with little more than some mild scorching.

  3. I dont see this ending good for Wilson. These trashy celebrity types are not good wives. Fine if he is just dating them, but he needs to find himself someone more wholesome, maybe from his church, who isn’t out for his fame and $$ to settle down with.

  4. So what? Wouldn’t Wilson just rise from the dead on the third day, anyway? Don’t tell me Future’s purple drank trumps his magic nanobubbles…

  5. First Wilson’s ex-wife cheats on him with a former team mate now his fiancé’s ex is threatening his life. I guess his magic nanobubbles cures everything but bad choice in women.

  6. I am a big fan of rap music, but as I get older, I am beginning to wonder if the time is coming where doing/glorifying illegal acts through music should be banned.

    Really? A guys life is threatened and you take the opportunity to take pot shots at him?

    You might be a Patriots fan if…

  8. I wonder if Wilson actually feels threatened by a dude that calls himself “Future”?

    ========================

    Awwww – wubsie…

    She-Hawks fans get soooo sensi when Russell is in ‘danger’ from emojis. Give me a break.

  10. Too many women out there who don’t have a crazy ex for him to be in this situation…..only going to get worse as the kid gets older…..chalk this up as not worth it…..

  11. Why would Ciarra go from a “real man” like Future to a guy like Russ?

    ————

    You must be new. The “bad boy” really only does well with the ladies into the mid-twenties. Then they start looking for a little more stability and the “bad boy” becomes the “loser”.

    His name is future? Really? Almost as bad as naming yourself Mike Stud. That guy actually has a show…

    I feel old, I can’t stop smdh at these kids coming up.

  12. “Now, in court filings recently made by Ciara, she suggests that Future has threatened to kill Wilson.”

    Cage match…..fight to the death. Winner…. Russell Wilson!

  13. There are really some good points made earlier that RW should not be rooting around in the garbage for a “good woman”, the rap-kronic-gansta-hood-rat culture is just NO place to find a quality one. like begets like here and appearances are normally just that, as directly underneath the skin is slime and chaos.

  14. Threatening someone’s life is a heck of a lot more serious than whether or not you dislike the Seahawks or Russell Wilson. Do you get it–Future is threatening to kill him. To kill him.

    Some of you “football fans” who have made a joke out of this or taken it as an opportunity to run down Wilson, really ought to take a long, hard look at yourselves.

  15. Top QBs in the NFC West:
    1. Carson Palmer
    2. Russell Wilson
    3. Jared Goff
    4. Colin Kaepernick

  16. What is a supposedlydevout Christian guy like Wilson doing with a trashy broad like this anyway?

    Seems like a bit of hypocrisy to me. Can’t find anybody a little less “Hollywood” to date Russell?

  17. As long as Wilson is tied to Ciara he will have this dumpster fire Future in his life. Run Russell, run.

  18. Who is Future? Who are any of these new rappers?

    Man, the “music” is horrendous and their “lyrics” are for children.

    We all get it; “you’re all super bad-a$$ and we should be afraid.”

    That’s pretty much sums up every Rap song for the last decade or 2.

  19. Why would Ciarra go from a “real man” like Future to a guy like Ru$$?
    ———————————————–
    Now that we’ve corrected the spelling of RW’s first name above, was your question rhetorical?

  20. I wouldn’t want to be playing in a wide-open football stadium if a gangsta thinks I am messin’ with his babymomma. Bad move by Russell, and a potential distraction on the field going forward. Looks like the ’12’ will be hunting for Russell’s Future on game day.

  21. Russell looks like curious George. He should listen to the man with the yellow hat. Dump the baby mommy making machine..

    Rap isnt music…its just angry hateful yelling

  23. Isn’t this what Wilson signed up for when he divorced his college sweetheart before signing a big money contract?

  24. Future pays her 15k a month in child support, then she leaves him for the Christian nice guy who is celibate.
    Twitter beef is the new trash talk. Go right another rhyme
    And FYI, I don’t see the russ Ciara relationship lasting years anyways

  25. I didn’t know Wilson was into transgenders. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    So the fact that some lowlife nobody threatened him reflects poorly on Wilson’s image? Ridiculous.”
    ==================================

    Wilson is a supposed evangelical Christian, whether for public image only or not. He ought to know some of his Bible verses:

    Proverbs 13:20- Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm.

    In other words, watch out for the company you associate with as they will make or break you (Looking at you, Manziel)

  27. One has to wonder what Russell Wilson is thinking. Obviously, the heart wants what it wants, but this is not going to go away if and when he and Ciara finally get married.

  28. This has nothing to do with Wilson or Ciara. It has everything to do with a rapper who has multiple children by several women and expects them all to be in line and to his beck and call and. He cheated on Ciara and she moved on with her life and to a better situation. This is making this Future fellow crazy with jealousy and rage. I would not take this lightly. Should Wilson drop her, the next man she gets involved with will receive the same threats, etc. He is the problem. I’m sure Ciara loves her child but regrets making him with this dude.

  29. this is all publicity stunt, as im sure future will drop a new album soon, plus he is jealous of Mr. Holier than thou. That being said Wilson should have never picked Ciara or any woman with baggage he is Russell Wilson, he could get any woman in the North West and in Madison Wisconsin.

  30. Not sure she is the one for him. Too much drama associated with her and her lifestyle. Distraction in his career for sure. Reboot Russell!

  31. Ciara is that annoying ex who follows every move made by the ex and doesn’t really like the current guy she’s with. Future must have laid it down good for her to be this obsessive. What’s a skinny bag on bones like Future going to do to a Football player anyways?

  32. Not to worry…this is all part of the expansion of the TV franchise about hip-hop artists. This will be called Hip-Hop Seattle. Just like Hip-Hop New York and Hip-Hop Atlanta, this one merges music and football. Please watch!

  33. Russell apparently retorted, “Goshdarnit, don’t you make me take off my Members Only jacket, mister. You will not like those apples one bi-iddly-it.”

  34. What the heck is a “signer”? Does she do signing of rap songs for the hearing impaired?

  35. This is just made up to give Russell Wilson street cred. He’s got a lot of Nike product to sell and people buy things from who they think are cool, not dorky tools

  36. I’m willing to bet 95% of the people who wear sunglasses indoors don’t have a medical condition for bright lights. It’s an awful “fashion” statement.

  39. If Future is anything like the Niners’ Defense, RW shouldn’t be worried. Future won’t be able to lay a finger on him. This coming from a Niners fan.

    The poser is a Jests fan, hopefully that clears it up for you

  41. Wilson can afford a dozen professionally trained body guards. He doesn’t have much to worry about. He can afford to travel with 5 bulletproof SUV’s with tinted windows so nobody knows which one he’s in.

  42. I thought the death threats might have been from irate fans that wish he had the stones to audible out of a stupid dump pass at the goal line.

    After thorough evaluation of some Google image searches, I will have to respectfully disagree with your assessment.

  44. As bad of a choice we all feel it is for RW to choose that tramp, I bet the tramp wouldn’t even give RW the time of day if he wasn’t rich. She already suing a guy for calling her a bad mother. What’s she going to hit RW up for when RW calls her a bad wife? SMH

  45. “Wilson is a supposed evangelical Christian, whether for public image only or not. He ought to know some of his Bible verses”…

    “Evangelical” has nothing to freaking do with it. If you’re a “Christian” then you are, regardless of the specific doctrine.. (unless you’re talking about the Clinton and Obama type of “Christian”.. which means “I say I’m Christian because that’s what I think the public wants to hear, but I have not clue what it means..”

    Dude supposedly follows Christ and is supposedly serious about it. The choice he makes in a girlfriend (divorced, has a kid with another man, and a violent rapper at that) says a LOT about the kind of character she likely has, and I would be betting they are not sitting around memorizing bible verses in their spare time…

    Wow, you’re right! Ciara’s adam’s apple is almost as prominent as Anne Coulter’s.

  47. Russell didn’t your Momma have that talk to you about THOSE kinds of Girls?…
    You have a whole Ocean of Fish, and you net a Carp, what is worse you didn’t throw it back!
    I know love is Blind, but Deaf, with no sense of smell OR touch?
    Or perhaps there is a side of him we don’t know.
