    Frank Ocean's being sued by his father who says his son smeared his good name by claiming he was a bigot.

    Calvin Cooksey filed the defamation lawsuit over a Tumblr post Frank wrote last summer in the wake of the Orlando massacre. In the post, Frank accused his dad of using a homophobic slur years and years ago ... when Frank was a kid.

    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.

    Calvin also sued Russell Simmons in 2014 for claiming he was a deadbeat dad. That lawsuit was for $142 million.

    Sounds like Frank's getting a friends and family discount.

    In order to prove it's a lie, they need to find the transgender waitress that worked at whatever restaurant they were in, and get her account of the story (which I doubt she'll remember a miniscule event like that from 20+ years ago). The only reason I say miniscule is because transgenders go through a lot on a daily, so she most likely won't remember that.

    My opinion, not fact, Frank's father is homophobic, but does not want that label to ruin his "opportunities." Sorry dude, you reap what you sow. Your actions and beliefs had a major influence on your son's development, and now that he's bisexual, it should be no surprise that he resents you for the way you internalized disgust towards individuals who are like him.
