On Thursday morning, Houston rapper Slim Thug was a guest on local station 97.9 The Box’s Madd Hatta Morning Show, where he shared a harsh critique of Ciara’s relationship with her husband, NFL star Russell Wilson.
“[Does] a woman who used to talk to Future really want a Russell Wilson?” Slim Thug asked. “I don’t believe it, I think it’s all for financial stability.”
Ciara dated Atlanta rapper Future beginning in 2013 and got engaged in October of that year. The pair welcomed a son, Future, in 2014 before the wedding was called off over alleged cheating.
A year later, Ciara debuted her relationship with the Seattle Seahawks quarterback at the White House State Dinner for Japan. In March of 2016, Wilson proposed and the couple quickly wed in July. They welcomed their daughter, Sienna, to the world in April 2017 and the relationship still appears strong.
However, the Houston native isn’t buying that it’s a solid relationship based on love because Wilson is “corny.”
“No hate, I bought his shoes the other day. I’m just saying I have no personal issue with him, or her, God Bless them,” he said before explaining why doesn’t believe in the relationship.
“He’s just a corny dude, ain’t nothing wrong with it. I ain’t gonna say corny cause that’s hatin’ but he’s just like a square…I don’t believe a girl coming from a street dude could even adapt to that.”
The rapper went on to clarify that he was not calling Ciara a “gold digger,” but he feels something is off with the relationship.
After users on social media addressed his comments, Slim Thug apologized to Wilson. He said he was only trying to compare “good guy swag vs. bad guy swag” in a clip he shared later that day.
