Ciara and Future Settle Child Custody Case

By
Ciara is free to "1, 2 Step" her way out of court -- the singer and her ex-fiancé, Future, have settled their child custody case.
ET has learned that the two have wrapped up their custody dispute over their 2-year-old son, Future Zahir.
TMZreports that Ciara and Future have agreed to joint custody of their son, but Future Zahir will remain with his mom most of the time while his dad is out performing on the road.
Though the pair have been tight-lipped on their split lately, Future spoke out about the explosive custody battle in an interview with Rolling Stone in June.
"I can't deal with it," he told the magazine. "I can't even think about it. I never imagined my life would be like that: 'I'm going to sue you and take away from you.'"
"I don't know how to deal with something like that," the 32-year-old rapper added.
Future and Ciara's relationship turned sour three months after welcoming their son in 2014, when Future was accused of cheating on the "Body Party" singer. Things quickly became volatile over the next couple of years, after Future publicly slammed Ciara and her then-boyfriend Russell Wilson. 
In February 2016, Ciara sued Future for $15 million, alleging that the rapper slandered and libeled her in "multiple false and defamatory statements." ET confirms that the 31-year-old singer has settled the defamation case, after dropping the libel claim from the suit in October. 
Ciara, who married Russell Wilson in July, is currently expecting her first child with the NFL star.
ET caught up with the singer at the 2016 American Music Awards in November, where she revealed that she and Wilson have already picked out a name for their baby-to-be, and shared that Future can't wait to have a new sibling. 
"He rubs my belly and he says, 'Hi baby. I love you, baby,' ... and then he puts my shirt down and says, 'Bye, bye baby.' So, that's his own thing," she gushed. "He sees a baby walking, smaller than him and walking -- it doesn't matter, it's a baby. So, he goes, 'baby' and he looks at me and he goes, 'Mama, baby' --and he tries to pull my sweatshirt up."
