Frank Ocean’s Father Suing Him For $1 Million Dollars! [Details]

Rucuss staffDecember 19, 2012

Frank Ocean doesn’t have particularly fond memories of his father growing up.

Ocean has said publicly that his father left his mother Katonya Breaux Riley to raise him alone in New Orleans when he was just six years old. Now the Channel Orange singer is revealing that his estranged father is attempting to sue him for $1 million.

Ocean, who hinted he was quitting music to focus on literature earlier this month, announced the news Wednesday on Twitter.

Ocean eventually deleted the tweet, perhaps for legal reasons. He is currently riding high off the success of his first LP, Channel Orange, which peaked at number two on both the UK and US Billboard charts and has earned Frank six Grammy Award nominations.
