Frank Ocean can't catch break. Now that his latest album has done really well, his own father is suing him! Now this is not the first time his dad, Calvin Cooksey, has tried his luck with other people. Back in n 2014, Cooksey sued Russell Simmons for $142 million after Simmons called him a “deadbeat dad.” Nothing ever happened.
This time Cooksey is suing Frank for defamation. According to TMZ, Cooksey is seeking $14.5 million in damages because he claims Frank falsely accused him of using the word “faggot” in a Tumblr post last summer.
“I was six years old when I heard my dad call our transgender waitress a faggot as he dragged me out a neighborhood diner saying we wouldn’t be served because she was dirty.“That was the last afternoon I saw my father and the first time I heard that word, I think, although it wouldn’t shock me if it wasn’t. Many hate us and wish we didn’t exist.”
Mind you, Ocean is openly bisexual, so I'm sure nothing will come of this lawsuit either but you never KNO!
