Frank Ocean is the subject of a $14.5 million defamation suit filed by his own father, TMZ reports:
Calvin Cooksey filed the defamation lawsuit over a Tumblr post Frank wrote last summer in the wake of the Orlando massacre. In the post, Frank accused his dad of using a homophobic slur years and years ago … when Frank was a kid.
Frank recalled, “I was 6 years old when I heard my dad call our transgender waitress a f****t as he dragged me out of a neighborhood diner saying we wouldn’t be served because she was dirty.”
Calvin calls the story BS and says it’s damaged his financial opportunities in film and music.
