Frank Ocean - Blue Whale

We’ll let Consequence Of Sound handle this one since even we can’t really believe it.

As TMZ reports, a lawsuit was filed in L.A. County earlier today, acknowledging that Ocean had signed a $425,000 contract for the advertisement campaign. According to the suit, after Ocean viewed a final cut of the animated commercial, he raised concerns about the company’s logo being featured at the end. When Chipotle wouldn’t make his requested revisions, Ocean promptly backed out of the deal.

The suit adds that the restaurant later received an email from Ocean and his representatives. In it, the R&B singer asserted his belief that he had final approval of the end product and assumed Chipotle was the one in breach for not fielding his requests. Chipotle is seeking repayment of Oceans’s $212,500 advance.

As it turns out, this is the reason why Fiona Apple did cover of “Pure Imagination” from Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory. Ocean has responded to the lawsuit on his Tumblr page by linking to the Wikipedia page for “defamation”.
