Last year, following the Orlando nightclub shooting, the star took to his Tumblr page to recall an experience he had with his dad Calvin Cooksey.He wrote:
“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."TMZ reports his dad is now suing him for defamation, saying his son's claim is not true and it's damaged his chances at securing film and music jobs.
Calvin also sued Russell Simmons in 2014 for claiming he was a deadbeat dad. That lawsuit was for $142 million.
