Frank Ocean beats father in lawsuit

Frank Ocean beats father in lawsuit
It’s safe to say Frank Ocean doesn’t get on with his father, and the latter sued the former for over $14 million after Ocean narrated some of his childhood. Here’s the post Frank made, a reaction to the Orlando nightclub shooting in June 2016: 
“I was six years old when I heard my dad call our transgender waitress a faggot as he dragged me out a neighbourhood diner saying we wouldn’t be served because she was dirty. That was the last afternoon I saw my father and the first time I heard that word, I think, although it wouldn’t shock me if it wasn’t.”
You can imagine how that led people to conclude Ocean’s father, Calvin Cooksey, was a total fuck nugget, and he sued saying he’d never work in music or movies again. Well, good news, Cooksey has had his case thrown out thanks to “deficiencies” in the case. Frank described it all as “super sad.”
