R&B songstress Ciara has dropped her libel claims against rap star/ex-boyfriend Future. According to reports, Ciara’s lawyer filed documents to dismiss the remaining libel claim in her $15 million slander/libel lawsuit, after Future publically declared that she was an unfit mother in various interviews, while claiming “this b###h got control problems.” Ciara’s lawyer knew she couldn’t win this portion of the lawsuit, because she is not suffering from any financial hardship as a result of Future’s insults. The ongoing lawsuit isn’t finished. TMZ.com reports that Ciara is still suing Future for what’s known as “False Light” for making her look bad with his comments.
