Ciara Refuses to Say Future’s Name During Billboard Noms (VIDEO)


Ciara is “Never Ever” going to say her ex-fiancé Future’s name — not even when she’s announcing the Billboard Music Awards nominations.

The newly-engaged R&B star and Ludacris appeared on Good Morning America to announce the music award show noms.

Everything was going well until it was time for CiCi to read the Best Rap Artist nods.

The 30-year-old got through half the names — happily announcing Drake and Fetty Wap — but suddenly stopped talking when she arrived at Future.

Ciara was so insistent on not mentioning her ex — who’s the father of her son, Future, Jr. — Luda, 38, had to jump in and say his name instead.

Once the Atlanta rapper was out of the way, the “Body Party” performer resumed her duties, tapping Wiz Khalifa and Silento as the other nominees.

The Grammy-winner and Future have had a tense relationship since ending their engagement in August 2014.

Earlier this year Ciara hit Drake’s pal with a $15-million defamation lawsuit, after he called her a “bitch” and questioned the 1-2-stepper’s parenting skills on The Breakfast Club.

Maybe don’t diss Ciara? Because she’ll try to break your bank account and shade you in front of the entire country.

Ciara and Ludacris will host the Billboard Music Awards 2016 on Sunday, May 22.
