Future stepped outside of the rap game to find his former bae Ciara, which in turn sent Twitter collectively tweeting every move they made a few years back when they fast-tracked from dating to a birthday engagement to pregnancy.
Unfortunately, things, as they sometimes do in hip-hop relationships, went sour.
May 2016: A judge denied Ciara's request for full custody and Future is awarded joint custody of their son.
July 2016: Ciara files a defamation suit for 0,000 against the rapper making a claim that his negative public comments about her on Twitter prevented her from landing a lucrative deal with an international cosmetics company.
From custody battles to Twitter rants to the ensuing public fall-out, fans have been looking like Michael Jackson in the theater during the "Thriller" video, slowly munching on popcorn, watching as things get wilder by the day.
The Mask Off Challenge, where musicians re-created his song “Mask Off” with various instruments, took the internet by storm in April, and he's also up for Best Male Hip-Hop artist at this Sunday's BET Awards hosted by Leslie Jones. The pair has a child together, Future Zahir Wilburn, but they ended their relationship back in 2014.
September 2016: Future files documents to dismiss his ex Ciara's allegations that his "defamatory" comments cost her a lucrative endorsement deal.
In April, the singer attended the White House Correspondents’ Dinner arm-in-arm with the Seattle Seahawks quarterback.“People think I'm bitter because she moved on.

You know this dude for a few months and you're bringing him around your kid? After Us Weekly exclusively revealed the “Dance Like We’re Making Love” songstress was dating Wilson, fans tweeted at Future, who responded with: “I wish I cared.” Ciara and Wilson, however, couldn’t be happier.PHOTOS: Celebs who love athletes “I swear, man, I’m not thinking about her,” the rapper, 31, said on on Thursday, July 16. Like you gotta understand, you want a person to be happy [but] I’m not bitter,” he said of his ex, 29, dating the NFL pro, 26. I don't need him — she needs him." He does, however, care that their son has been added to the equation. The two gave each other shoutouts on Instagram after attending the 2015 ESPYS together in Los Angeles on Wednesday, July 15.
