It's lawsuit ping-pong.

First Ciara filed a $15 million defamation lawsuit against Future. Now Future has filed a countersuit against Ciara. The only people guaranteed to make money are the attorneys.

According to TMZ, Future alleges that Ciara's last album was a flop, which means that she doesn't have enough star power for him to defame her. CiaraĀ charged that she was being defamed after Future went on a Twitter rant about their relationship and said she was keeping him away from their son.

In hisĀ countersuit, Future wants Ciara to pay for his legal fees, and he wants the court to prohibit her from talking about him.

Like I said, these lawyers are making a fortune.
