Ciara was reportedly wearing a custom Roberto Cavalli gown, designed by creative director Peter Dundas. The couple had a very short engagement; news of the impending nuptials broke in March 2016. However, the couple had declared sexual abstinence since they started dating in April 2015.

Russell’s bride, according to her friends was having difficulties sleeping on her wedding eve, due to over-excitement and she had celebrity pals such as Kelly Rowland, Lala Vasquez and Jennifer Hudson by her side to assist.

Meanwhile, Rapper Future, the guy Ciara dated before Russel and the father of her son, can’t seem to easily bury the hatchet and move on with his life. Following an insinuated threat to NFL quarterback Russell Wilson, by Future, the female singer filed a lawsuit against her ex, last week.

Apparently, Ciara thinks her new beau is not safe from a possible attack from Future… Well, that is according to the rapper’s post and song lyrics.

Future didn’t make a good case for himself as he had previously posted football emojis with guns pointing in their direction, before going on to rap on his recently released song, ‘Juice’: ‘Tryna f**k my baby mama, dog what’s up with you? You gon’ make me get that heat, I’m pulling up on you.’
