Back in 2017 Essence reported that the songwriter posted a video of the pair having a good time at a party that was held in honor of her husband, Russell Wilson’s team, the Seattle Seahawks, victory over the Houston Texans. 

The “Like a Boy” crooner’s bond with her father is so close that Vibe Magazine revealed that she used to think about what Carlton would do in certain situations before she reacted.

Even when it came to relationships, the singer-songwriter would often seek out her father’s opinion and then stick to whatever he told her.

For someone who has always looked up to her father, Ciara admitted that she had a difficult time dealing with the aftermath of her parents’ divorce.

According to The Blast, the expectant mother was close to tears as she spoke about her parents’ split during a June 2019 appearance on RuPaul’s show.

Ciara explained that even though her parents had enjoyed over 30 years of marriage, they chose to call it quits and move on by remarrying other people.

Madame Noire added that the one good thing that came out of the ordeal was that Ciara met her man at that time as she told RuPaul that:

“I did meet the love of my life sooner than I had planned. In my mind, I thought I was going to be single for four years.”
