Rapper Future has headed to court after his alleged sixth baby mama Eliza Reign filed a paternity suit against him. The rapper is reportedly seeking a gag order against her.
Earlier this month, Florida-based Reign (aka Eliza Seraphin) sued Future for paternity while also seeking child support and custody for their alleged daughter. Reign filed the case as “indigent” and didn't have a lawyer representing her.

According to The Blast, Future (real name Nayvadius Wilburn) has now filed court documents asking a judge to keep his alleged baby mama from talking about him or the paternity suit publicly.
The rapper reportedly believes that Reign’s case against him and her recent allegations only serve to tarnish his reputation. The judge is yet to rule on Future’s gag motion.
Reign first made headlines last November when she revealed she was carrying Future’s baby and claimed the rapper was out to kill her and the unborn child.
“I got a call from someone telling me to be careful ‘I heard Future want your head'” Reign had written in a since-deleted Instagram post.

At the time, Future mostly remained quiet about the allegations and Reign continued to document her growing pregnancy on Instagram.
According to an Instagram page often tagged by Reign, she welcomed her daughter – named Reign Wilburn – on April 19, 2019. The new mom has since been documenting precious moments with the tot on Instagram.
The curvy Instagram model had been quiet for a while until news broke that she filed a paternity suit against Future. Taking to her Instagram stories, Reign then made more accusations, claiming she only took the case to court after Future reunited with her and left again.
"[Future] came back around. We got cool. Hashed out the past. He made promises. Then disappeared again. I'm not running no [expletive] down to do what he's supposed to do. So I finally decided to let the courts chase him instead.”

“Regardless of how she got here, SHE’S HERE!" Reign continued, referring to their alleged daughter. “so stop making excuses and justifying a grown man abandoning an innocent child.”
Reign also threw more shade the rapper’s way after an Instagram user asked for his number in the comments, and she replied: "1-800-Deadbeat.”
If the paternity test returns positive, baby Reign will be Future’s sixth child from his sixth baby mama. In December, a month after Reign went public with her pregnancy, the rapper welcomed his fifth child, a son with Joie Chavis.
