Frank Ocean Wins $14.5 Million Libel Lawsuit Against His Dad
Frank Ocean has won the libel suit that his father, Calvin Cooksey, filed against him earlier this year.
The lawsuit was in response to Frank’s 2016 Tumblr post that described his father using a gay slur when Frank was a child, which Cooksey claimedcost him “future financial opportunities” and more.
He was seeking $14.5 million in damages. Frank’s attorney, Keith Bremer, confirmed to Pitchfork that the judge ruled in Frank’s favor.
“It was a super sad case,” Bremer told Pitchfork in a statement. “I am sorry that my client had to go through this and am glad that we could bring closure.”
