PETA wasn't happy when NFL star Russell Wilson surprised his wife, Ciara, with a very expensive purebred puppy.

The excited singer introduced her new pet to her 32 million followers on Instagram. "Got a puppy. Her name is Bronco," she said in the video.

Ciara captioned the video:

"Meet.. BRONCO The kids call her Bronco Love Brownie:) The sweetest surprise. I love you baby @DangeRussWilson #MothersDay."

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) went ballistic after TMZ posted a story about the new puppy.

They demanded to know why Russell didn't adopt a rescue/shelter dog instead of a purebred puppy.

Purebred puppies are sold by breeders or pet store chains for thousands of dollars.

PETA trolled Ciara in TMZ's comments, writing: "Mother dogs are often locked inside filthy cages and bred over and over until their bodies give out."

They said CiCi made a "'One, Two, Step' mistake by killing a dog's chances of finding a new home."

PETA said they're "calling on the couple to 'Level Up' on kindness by adopting a companion for this pup instead of fueling the homeless-animal crisis."

So far, Ciara and Russ haven't responded to the controversy.

Russell's head was on swivel all evening as fans shouted his name during the game. Fans showed the new Broncos quarterback much love. At one point the 33-year-old threw a football to a Denver Nuggets fan. He also autographed a football for the Nuggets Mascot Rocky the Mountain Lion.

Meanwhile, the debate rages on Twitter.com after retired NFL player Channing Crowder accused Ciara of marrying "square" Russ for his money.

Crowder, is among the observers who don't believe Ciara and Russell's marriage is as picture perfect as they portray it to be.

During an episode of his online series, The Pivot Podcast, Crowder said women like Ciara - who are into bad boys - don't usually switch up.

"If Russell ain't have that bread, Ciara ain't gon' be with him," Crowder, 38, said. "Russell's square. Russell's square. Ciara had a — she has a good situation — but you're not gonna leave Future and get with Russell Wilson. You don't leave Future and get with Russell Wilson... Everybody has a type."

This Twitter user agreed, tweeting:

"Most men who have wealth don't openly choose single mothers to wife. Men with no kids should choose women with no kids to start their own family and legacy, not piggy back off the nut of another man."

A Ciara fan encounter video sparked rumors that the mom of three is pregnant with her fourth child.

In a video, TikTok user @lolaloveu5 complimented Ciara on her amazing vocals and her glowing skin. "But you're so beautiful. You just be shining," the fan said, referencing the glow that pregnant women usually have.

Another TikTok user, @almondmilkfairy, asked @lolaloveu5 if Ciara was pregnant.

"Wait, when was this taken? I didn't know she's currently pregnant?" To which @lolaloveu5 responded, "A day ago! I just found out too."

ALEXJR / BACKGRID

After the rumor spread like wildfire online, @lolaloveu5 clarified, "In my defense, I didn't even see she was pregnant. When I said I just found out it cuz y'all pointed it out to me. I had no bad intentions."

The rumors came weeks after Ciara's husband Russell Wilson was traded to the Denver Broncos from the Seattle Seahawks.

It seems Ciara is hesitant to expand her family because she turns 37 in October. Doctors warn that pregnant women over 35 are high-risk and their unborn babies may face complications.

Ciara urged Black women to get regular cervical cancer screenings as she notes that Black women are "twice as likely to die from cervical cancer than white women."

In an op-ed for NBC at the start of Black History Month, Ciara wrote that Black women should get regular PAP smear screenings as part of "self-care".

She wrote that Black women are twice as likely to die from cervical cancer than white women," and it's "not because of biology."

The 36-year-old mother-of-three blamed "health disparities" and "systemic racism" for higher cervical cancer rates among Black women.

"It's because of health care disparities, systemic racism and long-held inequities," she wrote, adding, "This must change."

Ciara said Black women should prioritize our own health care since we are invisible to the medical establishment.

She revealed that a member of her team received a cervical cancer diagnosis. Her friend's diagnosis hit home for her.

"The good news is that she prioritized her self-care and got screened," Ciara wrote, before adding, "The even better news is that because of early detection, her cancer was treatable, and today she is thriving."

The part-time singer and homemaker continued:

"As we conclude Cervical Health Awareness Month and enter Black History Month, we should use this moment to prioritize our self-care by taking action to protect our health and encouraging others to do the same."

Doctors recommend Pap smears along with a pelvic exam beginning at age 21 then every three years until age 65.

A Pap smear combined with HPV testing can be performed every five years for women age 30 and older.

Doctors recommend more frequent Pap smears, regardless of age, if you have the following risk factors:

  • A diagnosis of cervical cancer or precancerous cervical cells
  • Exposure to diethylstilbestrol (DES) before birth
  • HIV infection
  • Weakened immune system
  • History of smoking

Women who had a total hysterectomy or women older than 65 with previously negative Pap tests can consider stopping Pap screening.

Consult with your doctor to determine the option that is best for you.

Ciara tried her skills with the #balancechallenge on Twitter.com. She posted a video that showed her perfectly balanced while twerking.

She captioned the video: "She Got Balance. #balancechallenge That #TenToOneRum is fun!"


 
Ciara's fans were so impressed that they had to look again to see the rum bottle on her head.

The 36-year-old pop singer opened up about her struggle to raise three children while not letting them run over her. She described her "biggest parenting fail," is telling her kids "No."

"I really struggle on finding the balance of being super firm when I say no," she told OhBubble for a "Mommy Confessions" segment.

"I do believe that you need to be consistent with your babies, and I've been getting better at it... I do sometimes struggle a little bit where I may say, 'You can't have your iPad for a certain amount of days, and then maybe I cut that one day short."

Holding back tears, Lizzo continued:

"We don't deserve you. We don't deserve Missy Elliott and still you continue to give to us. You've given and given and given with your heart, your genius ... I want to thank you so much for helping me and my career ... thank you for making my dreams come true, Missy. You have no idea what you mean to all of us. We love you, we celebrate you, god bless you."
