Frank Ocean was just slapped with a multi-million dollar lawsuit from his own father over a Tumblr post he wrote last summer.
Frank’s dad, self-proclaimed “singer, writer, and inventor” Calvin Cooksey, filed a defamation lawsuit against his son, citing a Tumblr post Frank wrote last summer short after the Orlando massacre, TMZ reports. In the post, Frank accused his father of using an anti-LGBTQ slur over 20 years ago.
“I was 6 years old when I heard my dad call our transgender waitress a f*ggot as he dragged me out of a neighborhood diner saying we wouldn’t be served because she was dirty,” Frank wrote. “That was the last afternoon I saw my father and the first time I heard that word, I think.”
Apparently, Calvin didn’t appreciate being called a bigot. He also claims Frank’s comments cost him financial opportunities in both the film and music industries. So he wants his son to form over $14.5 million dollars.
This isn’t the first time Calvin has tried suing his own son. In 2012, Ocean tweeted that his pops was trying to sue him for $1 million.
The tweet, which has since been deleted, said: “Father wanna sue me for a million. Like I owe him back child support. Weak individual bought me a swiss knife at 6yrs old then dipped on me.”
TMZ also notes that in 2014, Calvin filed a defamation lawsuit against hip hop mogul Russell Simmons for claiming he was a deadbeat dad. That time he wanted $142 million.
