Frank Ocean has won the defamation lawsuit that his father, Calvin Cooksey, filed against him.
Cooksey claimed that his son defamed him in an open letter, in which the singer claimed that his father called a transgender waitress a faggot when he was young.
However, a judge has ruled in Ocean’s favour, saying that Cooksey failed to provide proof of defamation.
“It was a sad case, but we are glad that it ended in Frank’s favour and that it is over,” said Ocean’s attorney.
Cooksey originally sued Ocean for $14.5 million. Frank responded by asking the judge to dismiss the lawsuit and that his father cover his legal fees.
