NBC News officially invested in the troubles of Ciara and her son’s father, Future.
On Friday morning, Nbcnews.com published an open letter to Ciara about her relationship with Future as well as to the women who are dealing with baby daddy issues. But before launching into the article, a disclaimer was written that the essay is “an opinion that was submitted and not an endorsement.”
The letter starts off by suggesting Ciara had an “odd reaction” earlier this week while announcing the Billboard Music Award nominations and refused to say her ex-fiancé’s name. “Your body recoiled,” the letter reads.
It goes on, “It troubles me that even with forethought, you may not have recognized such a reaction to be disrespectful, to the man, but more importantly, the son you share with him.”
Writer, Yolanda Young, then goes into detail about her personal struggle seeing her mother endure “years of abuse, verbal assaults but also the occasional slap, choke, and blackeye” by her father.
Young then proceeds to advice Ciara that “the lawsuits and countersuits you and Future have filed demanding the other stop making derogatory remarks will solve your problem, but it is impossible to resolve personal strife in public.”
The letter reads, “What you must do is remember what the two of you shared in private. Recall your child’s father at his most vulnerable, and I’ll bet it won’t be long before you realize that the mean and hurtful things he’s done to you aren’t the result of his being intrinsically evil but rather his being badly broken.”

Sound off: Does the write have a point? Should Ciara and Future be a little more diplomatic in their public custody battle?
