The story of absentee fathers that come back around once their children make it big is a common one. Frank Ocean’s story however, has a different spin on it. You see, Frank’s Dad isn’t looking to come back into his life, make amends and catch up on the time they missed out on. Instead, he wants to see his baby boy in court. The singer recently took to his Twitter page to express that his daddy dearest was suing him for a cool million.
” 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.”
“i got his DNA, maybe I inherited some of his karma too,” he tweeted.
The nature of Frank’s father’s lawsuit hasn’t been revealed, but according to Bossip he hasn’t been in touch with his kid in over fifteen years. With that in mind, we’re really curious as to what his reasoning behind suing Frank could be.
While we don’t know much about the 25-year-old singer’s father, he does discuss his father not being around in his song, “There Will Be Tears”, which was featured on his 2011 mixtape.
Witnessing your father abandon your family at a young age has to be a hard pill to swallow. But, to add insult to injury by suing your kid now that he’s a successful singer and songwriter is just wrong. It is clear that Papa Ocean wants a piece of the pie, the only question is whether or not he’ll get it.
I guess we will have to wait and see this story unfold, but we’re hoping whatever judge Frank’s dad has to stand before orders him to have seat. Several.
What do you think of Frank publicly announcing that his father is suing him? Do you think this is something he should’ve kept under wraps?
