Ciara was on CBS in the Morning today to talk about her "vulnerability" on her latest album Jackie. Host Gayle King then piggy-backed that to ask her about her love life and brought up the fact that her ex-boyfriend, Future, doesn't like that she introduced their son to her new boyfriend, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. Ciara expressed concern over other people's opinions although they don't know the whole story: 

"I did reach out to my son's father for him and Russell to speak and he didn't want to talk to me. We didn't get to talk and that was that. I don't know what more they would expect for me to do than just to live my life."

Last month Future appeared on New York's Power 105.1 and expressed his distaste with Russell Wilson being around his son, telling The Breakfast Club:

"If I was a kid, and my momma had some dude pushing me, I would've jumped out the stroller and slapped the shit out of him. You never do that in our've only known this dude for a few months and bring him around your son, who does that?!"

Ciara believes there's a double standard at play here when it comes to her letting her son be around Wilson. "At one point in time when we were together, I took care of [Future's] kids as well, at a very young time in our relationship," she told the morning show hosts before asking, "Well, what's the difference here?"
