Frank Ocean's Father Reportedly Suing Him for $1 Million

Long-lost loved ones—or not-so loved ones—always seem to turn back up once someone's made it big, don't they? In June, weeks before releasing his soon-to-be hugely celebrated channel ORANGE, Frank Ocean tweeted, "just found out my absent father's been cyberstalking me, hi dad."

Now, according to NME, things have gone a little further. "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," Ocean reportedly wrote, deleting the tweet shortly after. Another tweet still on Ocean's account reads, "I got his DNA though, maybe I inherited some of his karma too."

Talk about a drag. One second you're leading the Grammy nominees with hat-tips for Album of the Year and Best New Artist, the next you've got your estranged father somehow trying to wring money out of you. Way to take a page out of Eminem's mom's book, Papa Ocean.

We're guessing it won't dampen Frank's creative spirit, though. The guy's already talking about writing novels and building arenas. Nothing can stop him; even greedy non-parents.
