Ciara Princess Harris got her petty on while announcing the Billboard Music Award nominations on ABC earlier–well, only for one category.

Naming the big wigs up for “Top Rap Artist,” CiCi had a momentary lapse in vocal ability when it came time to say the name of her ex-fiance and father of her only child, Future.

The singer leaned her head towards her temporary co-host Ludacris, who dutifully covered for her, simply stating, “Future…”

You could almost hear the collective “Oh!” of the production team watching off-camera.

Ciara, who recently got engaged to Seattle Seahawks star Russell Wilson, seems to carry the bitter-torch for Future; undoubtedly, the reasons surrounding her $15 million defamation lawsuit against the rapper in February may be continuing to stoke up the flame.
Slay on, CiCi.
