Was Ciara trying to protect her statements made in an interview with Us Weekly?
On Wednesday, August 13, the R&B songstress slammed the media outlet over an interview she allegedly did, claiming they were “thirsty to create a story.”
The interview came on the heels of reports that the 28-year-old and rapper Future had called off their engagement.
"I'm in a much more clairvoyant place in my life," Ciara told Us Weekly. "So, I want to express that through my music."
But Ciara took to Twitter and angrily tweeted at Us Weekly, Insisting she didn’t do the interview. "I did not do this interview with you! This is a lie, and tasteless! Must you be that thirsty to create a story?! Unbelievable!" Ciara wrote. She later added, "U manipulated my words & took the interview for sensation…As I Said, Thirsty!"
Contrary to Ciara’s statements, Us released audio of the said interview, which was done at an L.A. event on Tuesday, Aug. 12.
On the heels of a broken engagement, we’re thinking this interview just came out at a bad time for Ciara.
