Rapper Future will face off in court with the woman suing him for paternity of her baby.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a Florida judge has granted a motion filed by Future and set a hearing for November 8.
Future had demanded the hearing, in the case brought by a woman named Eliza Seraphin. She claims the rapper is the father to her baby. Her lawsuit is seeking child support and custody.
Shortly after the case was filed, Future rushed to court asking the judge to gag Seraphin. He wanted her not allowed to speak publicly about him or the case. He clearly believes his name is being damaged by the recent reports of Seraphin’s case and the allegations she has made against him.
The hearing will determine if the judge will issue a gag order against Seraphin.
Future has also publicly denied being the father. He took to social media posting a video of himself, which addressed the claims he fathered a 7th child.
He captioned his video with text, “I have 5 wives BTW. Love them all to death.” The 5 wives’ part is referencing the 5 women he already has kids with. He has a total of 6 kids, including one with singer Ciara.
Last month, Seraphin sued Future for paternity along with seeking child support and custody. She filed the case as “Indigent” and does not have a lawyer representing her.
Seraphin is known as Eliza Reign the Haitian Goddess on social media, and has over 300,000 followers.
The model chronicled her pregnancy on Instagram, and posted several shots with her daughter in the hospital after giving birth.
She is the same woman who went public when she first found out she was pregnant, and claimed Future was not happy about it and even wanted her to get an abortion.
At the time, Eliza wrote, "Eventually I found out I was pregnant and I let him know," referring to Future.
She continued, "He obviously wasn’t happy about it but wasn’t very forceful strong about getting rid of it either. However, he asked me to have an abortion. I thought seriously about it but waited a few weeks."
She continued. “I got the courage to basically inform Him that I didn’t go through with the procedure and decided to keep the child...He went ballistic! Having members of his camp call me and friends come by my job asking about me. It got so bad, Out of fear, I started to slow down on working.”
Reign said at the time she was "scared for her life, her unborn child’s life and her family."
The case is ongoing.
