Congrats to the happy couple. We wish them the very best!
On another note, singer Frank Ocean has had some major family drama going on this year. Several months ago, the star spoke about hurtful things his dad said when he was a child. Ocean's emotional post was on Tumblr, and covered a variety of hateful things that have been done to people in the gay/transgender community, one of which the singer recalled changed the gay club scene forever in Florida, after the Pulse Nightclub shooting.
Needless to say, Ocean's dad took major offense to his son's recollection, and filed suit. Calvin Cooksey filed a $14.5 million defamation lawsuit claiming he incurred damages because of what his son said. HotNewHipHop reports Cooksey was suing on grounds that his son's statement lost him "future financial opportunities in film and music.” The singer's estranged father argued that Frank knew he was trying to shoot a movie, titled Part of the Game. His dad went on to say Frank "destroyed his father's reputation so that his father can never get a deal or produce his father's movie."
The good news is that Frank won the case. U.S. District Judge, Stephen V. Wilson's ruling wasn't a matter of whether or not the singer's comment on Tumblr was true or false. Rather, with any case, the burden of proof lies with the accuser. Turns out, Ocean's father couldn't provide any proof to support his claim of defamation.
Sadly, this isn't the first time he's tried to sue his son. Rolling Out reports that in 2012, he reportedly tried to sue Frank Ocean for 7 figures. A few years later, he turned around and filed a lawsuit against Russell Simmons. That, too was a defamation lawsuit, where Cooksey tried to cop a $142 million payday.
He didn't win that case, either. No surprises there, but the fact that he's got a history of trying to sue people isn't a good look. Anyway, Cooksey claimed Simmons’ website, Global Grind, painted his as him a “deadbeat dad” and, as a result, cost him 9 figures in future income.
It's a shame, but some people will do anything for money, even if it means hurting family. Stay in the know on all the entertainment news. Catch Tha Wire twice a day, every weekday on The People's Station 107 Jamz.
