Flip and get the latest family drama going down with Frank Ocean...
In the letter, Frank Ocean opened up about his life and the things he was forced to endure when his father, Calvin Cooksey, made a derogatory statement to a transgender waitress. At the time, Frank was merely a child.
The 29-year-old recalls his personal experiences with homophobia from his father:
“I was six years old when I heard my dad call our transgender waitress a f*ggot as he dragged me out a neighborhood diner saying we wouldn’t be served because she was dirty.”
Fast forward to Thursday, the hate still continues. Almost a year after Frank Ocean’s open letter last June, his father has decided to SUE his son for $14.5 million!
Calvin is claims the post has damaged his opportunities in the film and music industry. This is NOT the first time he has filled a lawsuit against someone in the music industry. Ocean’s father SLAPPED Russell Simmons with a $142 million after his website — Global Grind — called him a deadbeat dad.
Its sad when money rips families apart.
