Frank Ocean Sued By Father For $14.5 Million For Gay Slur Claim

Maybe blood isn’t thicker than water, after all…

According to TMZ, Grammy-award singer Frank Ocean is being sued by his father for $14.5 million.

Calvin Cooksey filed a defamation lawsuit claiming that Frank smeared his name after posting a Tumblr post that his father used homophobic slurs frequently when he was a child.

In the post Frank also claimed, “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.”

Despite Frank’s recollections, Calvin claims Frank’s story is untrue and that his allegations have cost him a great deal in the entertainment industry.


Surprisingly, TMZ reports that Calvin is no stranger to lawsuits. In 2014, he sued hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons for a whopping $143 million for saying that he was a deadbeat dad.

Sheesh! This guy is a piece of work and what parent sues their child?!
