Frank Ocean Claims His Father Is Suing Him For $1 Million


Earlier today we saw cute and happy photos of Frank Ocean all boo’d up with his boyfriend Willy Cartier at the SoHo House here in West Hollywood, CA. But right now we learn that things aren’t all sunshine and roses for the talented singer. Frank tweeted earlier today that his father wants to “sue me for $1,000,000″. The tweet has since been deleted but it sounds like there may be trouble in Ocean’s seemingly charmed life.

Frank Ocean has said that his father wants to sue him for $1,000,000. The soul singer took to Twitter earlier today to write:

Father wanna sue me for a million. Like I owe him back child support. Weak individual bought me a swiss knife at 6yrs old then dipped on me.

The tweet has since been deleted, but another tweet about his father remains on the social networking site at It reads: “I got his DNA though, maybe I inherited some of his karma too.” The ‘Channel Orange’ singer has spoken about his absent father in the past, tweeting earlier this year: “Just found out my absent father’s been cyberstalking me, hi dad”. Ocean was raised by his mother Katonya Breaux Riley in New Orleans.

Blah. This is very sad news. I mean, it’s not really surprising when long lost relatives come out of the woodwork after the people they’ve abandoned get rich and famous but it’s always sad to hear about. It sounds like Frank may have his father to deal with from here on out. While I sincerely doubt that he will be forced to pay his father anything, I find it hard to believe that his dad will take “no” for an answer. Just, sad.
