According to reports,  hip hop mogul Russell Simmons is facing a lawsuit worth $142 million dollars. Simmons is being sued by singer Frank Ocean's, father, Calvin Cooksey.

Cooksey has accused Simmons of portraying him in a negative light on his social media news blog Global Grind. Ocean's father said Simmons posted things about him on his website without checking the facts first. He said he feels he's being unfairly portrayed as a horrible father.

He said he hasn't been able to see his son because his mother moved and hid Ocean from him. He also stated that if Simmons was going to defame his character that he could have at least used his name!
