Monica Speaks On Severed Friendship With Ciara, Weighs In On Future And Russell Wilson

Monica discusses her severed friendship with Ciara and the controversy surrounding her new relationship in a recent interview.

Following her break-up with Future, rumors began to swirl that Ciara’s friendship with fellow singer Monica ended because of the called-off engagement.

With the masses speculating that Monica had knowledge of Future’s alleged infidelity, and that she had maintained a friendship with the mother of another one of the rapper’s children. Amidst the chatter, Monica was probed about the rumors during an interview with Atlanta’s Streetz 94.5 radio station and decided to set the record straight. Admitting that she and Ciara did have a falling out, she denied it had any connection with Future.

“I read something that I didn’t tell her about somebody cheating, none of that stuff is true,” she said. “They say I was friends with somebody he was cheating with, none of that stuff is true. I am friends with on of the mothers of one of Future’s children, but it’s the mom that you never see, you never hear, that Ciara also has a good relationship with. So a lot of the stuff you read is very untrue. Nothing that happened with us had anything to do with him.”

Sharing that their severed friendship stemmed from unresolved issues during their nearly two decade-long relationship, Monica also noted that she retained love and support for Ciara although they are not on good terms. The singer was also asked for her take on the controversy surrounding Ciara’s courtship with Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

“I make it my business to mind my business, that’s the difference with me. I love the fact that she’s in love and happy, and I think the best thing you can do is to put God at the forefront of it, and other people completely out of it–especially the media [...] I know what I had to do when it came to me and my children, and everybody will make that choice as a parent.”

Monica also updated her fans on the status of her upcoming album Code Red. Peep the interview below (the Ciara discussion begins at the 14:35 mark).
