1. T.I. Shares His Thoughts On Ciara, Russell Wilson And Baby Future
T.I. has sounded off against Ciara for allowing NFL star Russell Wilson to spend time with her son, who was fathered by fellow MC Future. Photos of the football star holding Ciara and Future’s son recently hit the web, prompting a swift response from T.I.
One Instagram follower specifically asked Tip what he thought of Wilson spending so much time with Future’s son, to which Tip responded, “I’d go the f**k off bro!!! S**t outta line to me . . . But that’s just me.”
The comment may come as a surprise to some of Tip’s fans, however, as he himself is helping to raise wife Tiny‘s daughter from a different marriage.
The MC also recently collaborated with Ciara on a remix of the track “I Bet,” which is reportedly about Future’s antics outside their relationship. by RTT Writer
