Ciara Refutes US Weekly Story

"I'm Out" singer lashes out at magazine for manipulating her words in pre-breakup interview.

Published August 14, 2014

A gossip magazine isn't telling the whole story behind their interview with Ciara.

The "I'm Out" singer snapped back at US Weekly Wednesday (Aug. 13) over a story she claims was "manipulated" and sensationalized. The publication grabbed an interview with Ci Ci just before publishing her reported breakup from Future.

In the interview she talks about being in a "clairvoyant place" and wanting to "express that through music" and being a mother to little Future Zahir Wilburn. "I want to be one of those moms and women that when I look back I know that I always stay focused," she said.

"It's about keeping your eyes on the prize. Before I had a child, I had goals. And I still have to accomplish those goals, but now that I have a child I have more goals to accomplish. So I can't waste time. I have to go for it. It actually pushed me harder, and forward."

The headline ("Ciara Talks About Motherhood and Life After Future Split") was misleading.

Ciara later tweeted the magazine, "@usweekly I did not do this interview with you! This is a lie, and tasteless! Must you be that thirsty to create a story?! Unbelievable!" 

She deleted that post, and replaced it with an explanation. Apparently she did interview with US, her words were just taken out of context. She tweeted, "Be CLEAR @usweekly. I interviewed with your Beauty Editor about Degree & Mtv HOS. U manipulated my words & took the interview for sensation."

The publication hasn't updated or removed the story. As for Ciara, she may be upset with the outlet for breaking the news about her split. According to US, the 28-year-old Georgia native was "devastated" to find out that Future allegedly cheated while he was on tour.
