While promoting his new album Dirty Sprite 2, Future finally opens up on HuffPost Live about what really happened between he and Ciara and contrary to popular belief, he actually broke off the engagement with her! Read the full interview below.
How their relationship ended…
Everybody already had their speculations. I see a lot of people say he cheated, he cheated. Because, I feel like, 95 percent of relationships end with cheating. But me and her relationship had nothing to do with cheating. I feel like we were just growing away from each other and we grew apart. And it’s just so much dealing with–when you’re in a relationship and you the man and you want to make certain decisions for yourself and she want to make certain decisions. And I feel like the best route for me is to make more music, to go back to Atlanta, to go back to my roots, for my family. Like when you a man you want to make decisions for your family, sometimes the lady don’t see what you see.
The engagement had been called off. I called it off way before any cheating rumors.

Was it mutual?
I said it wasn’t going to work.
How did she respond?
She didn’t say cool but she wasn’t too mad because I explained it to her how it was. I was like ‘I’ll marry you today. You want to get married, let’s get married. But I’m not getting married with all these different people in my wedding. My family have to be there. I’m from the hood, hood people going to be there. It might be people that you don’t like that’s going to be there. But I know they love me, they got my best interest. I don’t want nobody from the industry there, I don’t want the media there. You know how girls have their fairy tale weddings, this how they pick it.
I was like we can do that and we can do it a year from now and then we can announce it like we’re just getting married. But we been together for a year, to get over that year hump. I didn’t want to get all the negative energy because I’m an artist. So soon as I get married and I go in the strip club, they’re going to be like ‘Ciara’s husband is in the strip club!’ They going always put something on it. They’re going to have a story to tell and I don’t want that headline story. So just to keep the people out our business and keep it personal, let’s just get married now and tell them a year from now. By the time we announce it and get married on tv, we done went past the hard part. We’re on our second year. We done worked on our marriage for a whole year and she probably didn’t understand that at that time.

We still were together. We were living together, even after that part, after I told her we were still living together. We sat down and talked about it cuz we were like best friends and I told her how I felt. She was like, ‘Nah, I just took pictures.’ With the bridal thing… So it was like more of embarrassment and I felt embarrassed for her because you love someone you don’t want them to feel uncomfortable. And I was like I didn’t ever tell the media that we had called off the engagement and then when it started coming out, everybody assumed it was because of cheating. She never did an interview saying I cheated. I never did an interview saying I cheated.
On the rumor that he doesn’t take care of his children.
That’s a total lie. I take care of all my kids to the fullest. I take care of my kids’ mom. My kid’s moms don’t work. I don’t know where it’s coming from. It’s nothing I don’t pay for. Find something I don’t pay for, and I’ll make sure I pay for it. That does frustrate me though, talking about my kids. Because I know that I’m a great dad. I could be better with timing because I got a busy schedule but I’m always going to be there.
Did Ciara make you wait like she’s making Russell wait?
Never. I don’t know their situation. Wait for what? He might have announced that just for the sake of saying that. God didn’t tell me that. God told me something else. He didn’t tell me to wait, I guarantee that. We prayed afterwards though. After we did it, we prayed. That’s a true story. Yeah man. That was what really got me. ‘Man, she praying with a nigga.’ I ain’t never had nobody pray with me. That shit blowing me away.
