What’s going on here? Late Wednesday, Aug. 13, Ciara angrily tweeted at Us Weekly in reference to a just-published online interview with the R&B star. “I did not do this interview with you! This is a lie, and tasteless! Must you be that thirsty to create a story?! Unbelievable!” the “I’m Out” singer, 28, wrote. She later added, “U manipulated my words & took the interview for sensation…As I Said, Thirsty!”
In spite of these claims, Ciara indeed gave an extended interview with an Us reporter at an L.A. event on Tuesday, Aug. 12. During the chat, she spoke at length about her fashion, her fitness routines, her music, her upcoming MTV House of Style episode and being a brand-new mom to baby boy Future Zahir Wilburn, among other topics. “I’m in a much more clairvoyant place in my life,” she told Us. “Moms can be fresh, fly and young, and that’s the kind of mom I want to be,” she added. “I’m very, very happy.”
As it happens, Ciara is also newly single. As Us exclusively revealed Wednesday morning, she recently broke up with her infant son’s father, rapper Future, after learning of his infidelity. (The pair had been engaged since October of last year.)
