Frank Ocean Pushes Back Against His Dad’s Defamation Lawsuit
by Yohance Kyles (@HUEYmixwitRILEY)
(AllHipHop News) Frank Ocean was hit with a lawsuit from his own father over claims he was defamed by the Grammy-winner.
Calvin Cooksey is suing his son for a Tumblr post where Ocean wrote about a time when his dad allegedly called a transgender waitress a f-ggot.
According to TMZ, Ocean is seeking to have the lawsuit dismissed.
The website reports:
Ocean claims his statements are true — and that’s all the defense he needs to fight his father’s defamation suit.
Ocean posted the Tumblr message following the mass shooting at an Orlando gay club in June of 2016.
Cooksey is reportedly seeking $14.5 million from the “Lens” performer.
