Rock solid sources have confirmed that R&B singer Frank Ocean and his longtime boyfriend Memo are engaged.
Just last October, Frank Ocean beat a $14.5 million libel suit from his OWN father, who accused him of defamation stemming from Ocean’s bold coming out letter. He alleged that he was at a restaurant with his father at a New Orleans restaurant when his father called their waitress (who was transgender waitress an anti-gay slur.)
Cooksey lost the case as there was no evidence proving that he cooked be linked to Ocean. Frank Ocean has been ESTRANGED from him for many years and did not name him in the Tumblr post.
Ocean’s coming out did spawn a slew of think pieces on being openly gay in hip-hop. His former Odd Future crew member Tyler, The Creator, had known for some time about his sexuality but had remained a true friend and kept his secret. But the fact that he felt as though he had to keep it a secret in this day and age is deeply saddening. We are pleased that he has moved on from the lawsuit and is involved in a happy relationship.
