Bad Blood: Frank Ocean responds to his dad’s $14.5 million defamation lawsuit

MADDY DADDY…

 

Though Frank Ocean is unwavering in his stance against his dad’s use of derogatory speak, it seems the Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter is hoping the courts toss their legal issues into the sea of forgetfulness before things get even more nasty… 

OOOOOOP…

 

As previously reported on Cheekywiki, back in February, the 29-year-old masterful brains behind the Blonde album was hit upside the head with a $14.5 million lawsuit via his father, Calvin Cooksey, who claimed Frank sullied his good reputation in the entertainment realm by accusing him of using a homophobic slur in a Tumblr post written in the wake of the 2016 Orlando massacre– a fatal attack against the LGBT community. 
“I was 6 years old when I heard my dad call our transgender waitress a f****t as he dragged me out of a neighborhood diner saying we wouldn’t be served because she was dirty,” Frank recalled in his social media post last June…

Shortly after the “No Church In The Wild” vocalist’s post went viral, Calvin–who previously sued Russell Simmons for $142 million back in 2014 for accusing him of being a deadbeat dad– petitioned the courts to force his son to pay up as Frank’s bad-mouthing allegedly ruined his financial opportunities in film and music industries…
WELL…
In response to his daddy’s legal digs, Ocean claims his statements about Calvin’s messy mouth are factual AF and feels the truth is all he and his defense team need to fight the hefty lawsuit, according to TMZ. 
Frank reportedly wants the court to dismiss the case…and he’s demanding dad cover his court costs.
BLOOOOOP…
No telling if/how this bloodline beef can be smoothed out sans a judge and jury… But we hope some familial love can be restored between these two…
THOUGHTS?
