When two stars begin a hot new romance, people are going to talk.
But when it comes to Russell Wilson and Ciara‘s relationship, there’s one man who appears to be speaking out a little more than others. Yes, we’re talking aboutFuture.
Just last week, Ciara’s ex-boyfriend and the father to their child Future Zahir Wilburn had some strong words to say about Wilson’s involvement with his son’s life. But as it turns out, the “I Bet” singer isn’t too concerned with what her ex has to say.
“Ciara was more annoyed with Future’s comments than sad or upset,” a source revealed to E! News exclusively. “She is really strong now and so happy. She thinks Future needs to live his life and leave her happy relationship out of it.”
And when it comes to her man, Wilson “is not concerned with Future’s behavior.”
When Future was asked about photos showing Wilson pushing his son around in a stroller, the rapper voiced his disapproval. “You don’t even bring a man around your son,” he shared on The Breakfast Club. “You know this dude for a few months and you’re bringing him around your kid? Who does that? Nobody does that.”
But according to our insider, the introduction between Wilson and Future Jr. was something that happened naturally without any ill intentions.
“Russell loves kids and it was important to Ciara for Russell to meet Baby Future,” our source explained. “Russell is not trying to replace Future as a dad. He is just being a good guy to both Ciara and Baby Future.”
“Ciara introduced baby Future to Russell in a very organic way and never forced anything involving her child.”
Despite the headlines and scrutiny, there doesn’t appear to be any signs of trouble brewing between Ciara and Wilson. In fact, their recent appearances together at the ESPY Awards and Kids’ Choice Sports Awards may just show how strong their bond is.
“Russell is all about Ciara and they’ve been getting pretty close,” our source shared. “It’s about them and that’s all they are focusing on.”
