Did Frank Ocean Ban His Dad From L.A. Under the Penalty of Death?
(AllHipHop News) Frank Ocean’s father Calvin Cooksey alleges he’s received death threats after filing a libel action against his son.
Earlier this year, Calvin sued his son over claims he had verbally abused a transgender waitress.
According to editors at TheBlast.com Calvin has filed legal papers claiming he cannot travel to Los Angeles for a deposition as he has received death threats.
He states the threats he has received, as well as his status as someone who has given evidence in a previous murder trial, mean that it impossible to make a deposition without a security detail.
Calvin sued his son over a blog post in which Frank, who is openly gay, claimed his dad called a transgender waitress a “f##got” and dragged him out of the diner she was working in.
The "Thinkin’ ‘Bout You" musician’s father is demanding $14.5 million in damages as he insists his son’s story is false and that he has suffered financially and professionally as a result of his son’s allegations.
In response to his father’s lawsuit, Frank stated his original essay “speaks for itself,” and stood by his tale.
