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