Now that Ciara’s personal life has gotten a “Level Up” with husband Russell Wilson, she’s opening up about her 2014 split from her ex-fiancé, Future.
Though she didn’t mention her 35-year-old ex by name during her recent appearance on Jada Pinkett's Red Table Talk, the “Thinking Bout You” singer, 33, discussed facing the prospect of being a single mother of their 5-year-old son, Future Zahir.
“I’d be in the shower … crying because I’m not in the happiest place and it hurts what I’m going through,” she said on the Facebook Watch show. “It was a combination of everything because none of it was ideal.”
She elaborated: “I grew up with my mom and dad being together, the idea of it being, ‘Mommy and Daddy that made baby.’ Then, all of a sudden, you’re living your life in front of the world. That adds a whole other layer. ‘I feel like I’m failing right now. They’re gonna roast me. Here they come in the comment section.’ … All that stuff. It’s real. You can’t help but to think of it.”
Ultimately, Ciara wanted to stop wasting her time on an unhealthy relationship, as she explained on the show.
