Yep, you read that right, Frank Ocean’s own father is suing him for $14.5 million in a defamation lawsuit.
Frank made a post on Tumblr last summer after the Orlando Pulse Nightclub shooting about an event that happened when he was 6. He said that he was with his father at a local diner, and they had a transgender waitress. He says his dad called the waitress an offensive slur, and then left the diner while calling the waitress “dirty.”

In the lawsuit, Franks father, Calvin Cooksey, says that the post is untrue and has actually prevented him from booking film and music jobs. Apparently $14.5 million will fix that, on top of the $142 million he sued for back in 2014 when a music producer allegedly called him a “deadbeat dad.”
