Odd Future's Frank Ocean is letting loose on his personal life this week, revealing his father reportedly wants to snatch $1 million from him despite not playing a significant role in his life.
Ocean broke the news to his nearly two million Twitter followers early Wednesday (December 19).
"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.," he tweeted.
"i got his DNA though, maybe I inherited some of his karma too." (Frank Ocean's Twitter)
Odd Future leader Tyler, the Creator also shared some words of encouragement.
"@frank_ocean PLAY HIM INGLORIOUS AND TELL HIM I SAID HE'S A F WORD," he tweeted.

Shortly after the tweet went live, Ocean decided to take it down.
More money, more problems. Frank Ocean is riding a wave of good fortune, but not everyone is celebrating his success. The "Pyramids" singer's father has allegedly threatened to sue him for a million dollars. The normally reserved star took to Twitter to express his frustrations. "fatherwanna 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," wrote Frank before deleting the tweet. (Rap-Up)
This all comes just a few weeks after Frank landed six Grammy Awards nominations.
Six artists were tied for the most nominations: the Black Keys's Dan Auerbach; FUN; Jay-Z; Mumford & Sons; Frank Ocean; and Kanye West each scored six. But with Jay-Z and West mostly relegated to the rap categories, it's really all about the other four, who all are up for the prestigious album of the year. (People)
