Frank Ocean has revealed that his father wants to sue him for $1,000,000.
The singer took to his Twitter account today to say, “Father wanna sue me for a million. Like I owe him back child support. Weak individual bought me a swiss knife at 6 yrs old then dipped on me.”
Ocean has since deleted the tweet, but a further message that refers to his father remains on another social networking site, reading, “I got his DNA though, maybe I inherited some of his karma too.”
The singer previously mentioned his father, who was absent for his life as a youngster during which he was raised by his mother Katonya Breaux Riley in New Orleans, by tweeting earlier this year, “Just found out my absent father’s been cyberstalking me, hi dad.”
Ocean recently stated that his album, Channel Orange, might be his last ever, telling The Guardian, ” … storytelling’s a different thing. It’s the more interesting part about making music for me, or making albums and songs and stuff. So much so that I might not make another album. I might just write a novel next. I don’t know!”
He then added, “This isn’t a faux retirement. It’s no bullshit. I was just making music yesterday. But I do think it would be f****** legendary if I just made Channel Orange last year, then put out a best-selling novel next year, then, you know, designed an arena in Stockholm in 2014!”
What do you think of Ocean’s plans? Do you think he is a breathe of fresh air to the hip-hop scene?
