Frank Ocean 'sued by his own father for 14m due to alleged gay slur'

Reports suggest that Frank Ocean's father Calvin Cooksey is suing his son over a Tumblr post he wrote in the wake of the Orlando Pulse nightclub massacre that left 49 LGBT people dead.

Within the post Ocean accuses his dad of using a homophobic slur when he was a child. “I was six years old when I heard my dad call our transgender waitress a faggot as he dragged me out a neighborhood diner saying we wouldn’t be served because she was dirty,” Ocean writes. “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.”

Cooksey claims this statement is untrue, claiming that it has damaged his financial opportunities in film and music. He is looking for $14.5 million in damages.
