Future and Ciara’s legal woes continue.

Last month, TMZ reported that Ciara’s cosmetics deal was being called into question by Future and his legal team. If you recall, CiCi claimed that Future’s slander on Twitter cost her half a million endorsement with a make-up company. But Future believed it was bogus and that she’s only using it against him to beef up her defamation, slander, and libel suit for $15 million.

Now, Future might be getting the upper hand in the lawsuit. TMZ's latest says a judge ruled on Wednesday that Future's angry tweets towards Ciara aren’t enough to support her claim that her reputation was damaged. In his now-deleted Twitter rant, Future spoke out about his frustrations on co-parenting his son Baby Future with Ciara, writing, “I been silent for a year and a half…I ran outta patience. I just want Baby Future that’s all. I gotta go through lawyers to see Baby Future…the fuckery for 15K a month. This bitch got control problems…”

The judge stated that those comments alone aren’t enough to constitute libel. Ciara will have to find more evidence against Future if she wants to win this battle.
