Scoop: Ciara fears threats from Future against fiance Russell Wilson

There’s new, intense drama in the feud between Ciara and Future.

According to TMZ, the Atlanta-based R&B singer filed additional documents in her ongoing $15 million defamation suit against the rapper (father of her 2-year-old son Future Zahir Wilburn), stating that Future’s “frightening” behavior has made her fear for the life of her fiance, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

The platinum-selling singer reportedly referenced threatening emojis — two footballs followed by three guns — Future allegedly posted last year and brought up his recently released track with DJ Esco, “Juice” (about O.J. Simpson and murder), on which he raps, “Tryna f— my baby mama, dog what’s up with you? You gon’ make me get that heat, I’m pulling up on you.”

Future tweeted a response of sorts on Tuesday: Wish everyone could move on like me…that’s my only wish.”


Some kid basketball campers in Hawaii got a thrilling surprise when Steph Curry showed up at their door.

The adorable 45-second video posted Tuesday by the Golden State Warriors shows one youngster who literally drops to the floor, after answering what appears to be a dorm door when Curry knocks, saying he’s selling Girl Scout cookies.

Upon seeing the basketball superstar, the shocked boy puts his hand over his heart, before crumbling to the ground. Curry, laughing, quickly announces, “Help him up!” and assists him, while a few agog friends step up to greet the MVP.

In the next scene, Curry taps on another door, announcing he’s delivering Domino’s pizza. The trio of girls who open it jump up and down, squealing “Oh my God!” as Curry does the same.
