Here is an email we received from one of Ciara's closest confidants. This described the custody situation between CiCi and Future:
Ciara has had sole physical custody since Future Zahir was 3 months old and Future has had visitation which they were to work out between each other.
When communications broke down, Ciara filed for the courts to set a visitation schedule.
Future responded by requesting full custody. .
The courts decided that Future and Ciara have Joint Legal Custody which gave him the right to be involved in decisions (i.e. Medical school et al). However, physical custody is to remain the same since both parents live in 2 different states (and joint physical custody is virtually impossible) and was deemed in the best interest of Future Zahir.
