Ciara's ex-fiancé Future has accused the singer of using their son for a ''publicity stunt''.

The 31-year-old rapper - who split from the 'Goodies' singer in August last year - has blasted his former lover and her new man, American football star Russell Wilson, after he was pictured pushing Future's 14-month-old son, also called Future, in a stroller.

The rapper said: ''Of course I wouldn't want anyone to push my son. That's like the number one rule.

''If I was a kid, and my mom had a dude pushing me, I would've jumped out the stroller and slapped the s**t out of him. You never do that in our community.

''You don't even bring a man around your son. You only know this dude for a few months and you're bringing him around your kid? Who does that? Nobody does that.''

What's more, Future claimed the situation was designed simply to boost the couple's public profile.

He told US radio station Power 105.1: ''At the end of the day, I'm not for the publicity stunt.

''Leave my son out of all the publicity s**t. Just leave him out of your relationship, because we don't need your relationship for anything.

''I can take care of him on my own, without any help.''
