Ciara's new boyfriend Future has agreed to pay more than $1,600 (£1,000)-a-month in child support to an ex-girlfriend after she proved the rapper was the father of her 10-year-old son.

The 29 year old, real name Nayvadius Cash, was hit with a lawsuit from Jessica Smith after he rose to fame last year (12); she demanded he start paying up to provide for the kid he allegedly fathered as a teen.

Future took a Dna test to determine if the child was truly his and the results came back positive, reports

He recently struck a deal with Smith to hand over regular payments, based on his monthly income of $16,516 (£10,323), and a judge in Georgia signed off on the agreement earlier this month (Jan13), officially declaring the case closed.

Future recently confirmed rumours he and R&B singer Ciara are an item, saying, "I love music, she loves music. And we love being in the studio with each other. We love being around each other and that's just what it is. The chemistry is there. It's amazing. She makes me happy, I make her smile."
