That definitely bothered me, just because of the fact that I wasn’t nude.” After being called out, Smith sat down with KISS FM to dispel any rumors related to the photoshoot. Stating Ciara was okay with the shoot, in fact very in tune with the direction of the shoot, Smith came out victorious in the end with Ciara dispelling the rumor that she’d filed suit against the magazine. Today Ciara insists “I know what was there, I know what was taken, and I know what was done.
