Frank Ocean Defeats Father in Defamation Suit

Frank Ocean’s father lost his defamation suit against the singer after he alleged his son wrongly called him a bigot.

via TMZ:

The singer’s dad, Calvin Cooksey, had sued him … claiming Frank defamed him with a social media post recalling a story from his childhood. Frank said his pop had called a transgender waitress “a f****t.”

A judge heard the case in L.A. Tuesday, and ruled in favor of Frank … saying Cooksey failed to prove his son had defamed him at all. Frank’s attorney tells us, “It was a sad case, but we are glad that it ended in Frank’s favor and that it is over.”

We’re glad it’s over too.
