According to reports, Frank’s pops lost the defamation case against his mini-me.
The singer’s dad, Calvin Cooksey, had sued him … claiming Frank defamed him with a social media post recalling a story from his childhood. Frank said his pop had called a transgender waitress “a f****t.” A judge heard the case in L.A. Tuesday, and ruled in favor of Frank … saying Cooksey failed to prove his son had defamed him at all. Frank’s attorney tells us, “It was a sad case, but we are glad that it ended in Frank’s favor and that it is over.” (TMZ)
Back in February, details surfaced about his pops trying to get millions from him.
Frank recalled, “I was 6 years old when I heard my dad call our transgender waitress a f****t as he dragged me out of a neighborhood diner saying we wouldn’t be served because she was dirty.” Calvin calls the story BS and says it’s damaged his financial opportunities in film and music. He wants his son to fork over $14.5 million in damages. (TMZ)
Last June, Frank released a statement on the anti-gay Orlando nightclub shooting and referenced his dad.
