Frank Ocean has said that his father wants to sue him for $1,000,000.
The soul singer took to Twitter earlier today to write:
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.
The tweet has since been deleted, but another tweet about his father remains on the social networking site at Twitter.com/frank_ocean. It reads: “I got his DNA though, maybe I inherited some of his karma too.”
The ‘Channel Orange’ singer has spoken about his absent father in the past, tweeting earlier this year: “Just found out my absent father’s been cyberstalking me, hi dad”.
Ocean was raised by his mother Katonya Breaux Riley in New Orleans.
He recently said that his acclaimed album ‘Channel Orange’ might be his last ever LP. He told 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 added: “This isn’t a faux retirement. It’s no bullshit. I was just making music yesterday. But I do think it would be fucking 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!”
Frank Ocean released ‘Channel Orange’, which was his debut album, in July of this year, with the LP peaking at Number Two in the Official UK Album Chart.
