Frank Ocean is not taking it lightly after Chipotle has sued him for allegedly backing out of an ad campaign after receiving the payment for the work.
According to Gossip Cop, Ocean initially agreed to record a version of “Pure Imagination” for a ad campaign promoting locally sourced food, but backed out of the deal as soon as he found out that the Chipotle logo would be featured in the commercial.
The singer’s legal team explained the decision: “When Frank was asked to participate in this project, Chipotle’s representatives told him that the thrust of the campaign was to promote responsible farming. There was no Chipotle reference or logo in the initial presentation, and Chipotle told Frank that was an intentional element of the campaign.”
Chipotle paid Ocean $212,500 for the ad campaign and since he’s out, they want their money back.
The singer’s response to the lawsuit? A big fat ‘F*CK OFF’.
Frank posted a photo on his Tumblr of a check made out to for the amount of $212,500, and although you can’t see the name of the recipient, it’s clear who is intended for.
