Frank Ocean’s Dad Still Wants To Sue Him
theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, Frank Ocean’s (real name Christopher Edwin Breaux) father – Calvin Edward Cooksey – is still trying to hit his son with a lawsuit.
Here’s the latest: Despite him losing his $14.5 million dollar lawsuit against his 30-year-old son, Cooksey filed an appeal. Dated for earlier this month, the appeal was filed in California. Cooksey is appealing on the grounds of ‘due process violation’.
Here’s the backstory: Earlier this year, Ocean was sued by his estranged father, Calvin Cooksey, accusing him of ruining his good name. Cooksey explained his son published a Tumblr post following the Orlando nightclub massacre, accusing his father of using a slur towards another person when he was just a kid. Ocean wrote,
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’s dad claimed the singer defamed him and ruined his reputation, with people now believing he is a bigot, a claim he denies. He says the story recounted was fabricated. He sued for $14.5 million in damages.
