Ciara has received criticism from Future for letting their son interact with the singer’s boyfriend, Russell Wilson.

Ciara appeared on CBS This Morning to tell her side of the story and address what she calls Future’s “double standard.”

“At one point in time when we were together, I took care of his kids as well at a very young time in our relationship,” she says of the Atlanta rapper. “I was involved very early in the stage of us getting to know each other. That’s been a big conversation. It’s like, what’s the difference here?”

She continues by asking public criticizers to ask themselves who the most important character in the ongoing narrative is.

“I think that even for the men that are outspoken, wouldn’t you want someone to love on your child or love on the child that you’re speaking about?” she says. “More than anything, it is a child we’re talking about. That’s the thing that I think people have to think about. It’s like remove the adults from the situation. This is my child here and that’s serious.”

Ciara says that the most frustrating part of the whole situation is people who are quick to jump to conclusions without knowing all of the facts.

“I did reach out to my son’s father for him and Russell to speak,” she says. “He didn’t want to talk to me. We didn’t get to talk and so that was that. I don’t know what more they would expect for me to do than to live my life.”
