Frank Ocean has revealed that his father is attempting to sue him for $1 million at the end of a hugely successful year for the singer following the release of his debut album Channel Orange.

The 'Pyramids' singer, who recently hinted he was quitting music to focus on literature, announced on Twitter on Wednesday that his father is attempting to file a $1 million lawsuit against Frank for unspecified reasons.

"Father wanna sue me for a million. Like I owe him back child support. Weak individual bought me a swiss knife at 6yrs old then dipped on me," Frank allegedly tweeted today before the deleting that message.

The 22-year-old later added: "I got his DNA though, maybe I inherited some of his karma too.

"Not for glory. not for paper. not for self, friends, family, foes or lovers. no evil."

If Frank's father is successful with his attempts to sue the Odd Future singer, Frank may want to reconsider qutting music as he hinted he would do in an interview with The Guardian this week.

"...storytelling's a different thing. It's the more interesting part about making music for me, or making albums and songs and stuff. So much so that I might not make another album. I might just write a novel next. I don't know!" Frank told the publication.

"This isn't a faux retirement. It's no bulls**t. I was just making music yesterday. But I do think it would be f**king legendary if I just made 'Channel Orange' last year, then put out a best-selling novel next year, then, you know, designed an arena in Stockholm in 2014!"

Frank is currently riding high off the success of his first LP, Channel Orange, which peaked at number two on both the UK and US Billboard charts and has earned Frank six Grammy Award nominations.
