Ciara may be in her honeymoon phase, but she’s not letting that stop her from going after Future.

According to TMZ, the 30-year-old singer has filed additional documents in which she claims Future’s social media attacks made her lose out on half a million dollars. Ciara filed a $15 million lawsuit against the rapper, whom she shares a child with, back in February of this year. The action was sparked on Jan. 4, when Future took shots at Ciara in a series of tweets that read “I been silent for a year & a half..I ran outta patience,” “This bitch got control problems," and, "I gotta go through lawyers to see babyfuture...the fuckery for 15k a month."

Following the tweets, Ciara accused Future of slander, and now says his tirades have affected her reputation and, in turn, her career. According to the documents obtained by TMZ, Ciara says she lost out on an $500,000 cosmetic deal because Future tarnished her name.

In April, Future filed a countersuit against his ex-fiancée, claiming his alleged slander could not affect her reputation because her following wasn't large enough; however, he later asked the judge to dismiss his countersuit after he was awarded joint custody of their two-year-old son, Future, Jr.

Though Atlanta rapper seems to be over the legal battle, it's clear Ciara is not. Stay tuned to see how the rest of the story unfolds.
