Future has reportedly dropped the countersuit he filed against Ciara in April after she filed a $15 million lawsuit against him in February. According to TMZFuture decided to ask the judge to dismiss his counter lawsuit because his recent legal victory has awarded him more time with his son, baby Future.

In May, a judge awarded joint custody of Baby Future to both parents, despite Ciara's request asking for sole custody of the child. At the time, she claimed Future was a bad parent who was not present in their child's life, but the judge disagreed.

The legal battle between Future and Ciara has been an extremely long and ugly process with both sides saying slanderous things about the other in the courtroom and on social media. "I gotta go through lawyers to see babyfuture...the fuckery for 15k a month," Future once tweeted.

If you remember, the whole thing started when Ciara filed a $15 million defamation lawsuit against Future for slandering her name in public. Future filed a counter lawsuit against Ciara in response and reportedly used the low sales of her last album, Jackie, as proof that she didn't have enough buzz for him to slander her.

Since the two have worked out joint custody, Future has dropped his suit because he is reportedly worried about what might happen if he continues to go after Ciara in the courtroom. However, Ciara is still going forward with her hefty suit. The TMZ report notes Future is trying to mend fences to avoid any future issues—no pun intended.

Future's camp did not immediately respond to Complex's request for comment.
