Odd Future singer Frank Ocean‘s dad is going for his pockets. New reports claim Calvin Cooksey has filed a defamation lawsuit in hopes of getting millions in damages.

According to reports, Cooksey’s complaint comes from a Tumblr post Frank published last year where he referenced a controversial childhood memory.

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.
