It all started when Ehrlich and Wild granted an interview with Rolling Stone in which they called out Ocean by name for his long-standing boycott of the show — and linked it back to Ocean's woeful 2013 performance at the event.

Now, Ocean is striking back to their allegations that his performance was "hands down one of the most ‘faulty' TV moments I've seen," in the producers' words.

On Tumblr last night, Ocean went off, writing out this statement in full in which he called out the producers, Taylor Swift, the entire awards show process, and much, much more:

We feel so bad for Frank Ocean

As we reported last year, the musician penned a touching Tumblr post after the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida. In the essay, the 29-year-old speaks openly about his personal experiences with homophobia, including an incident where his father — Calvin Cooksey — made a derogatory statement to a transgender waitress when he was merely a child.

The rapper wrote:

"I was six years old when I heard my dad call our transgender waitress a f*ggot as he dragged me out a neighborhood diner saying we wouldn't be served because she was dirty."

Fast forward to Thursday, Ocean's father is suing his son for $14.5 million based on what he wrote!

Cooksey's defamation lawsuit not only discredits Frank's story, it claims the post has damaged Calvin's opportunities in the film and music industry.

Sadly, this isn't the first time the artist's father has filed a crazy lawsuit. In 2014, he sued Russell Simmons for $142 million after his website — Global Grind — called him a deadbeat dad.

It's always sad when money comes between a family…

Kanye West would do anything for his Real Friends… and that includes skipping out on the biggest award show in music!

The rapper has made no secret of his support of Frank Ocean, and is, like most, a huge fan of his new album.

But after learning neither of Ocean's 2016 albums, Blonde nor Endless, will be eligible for consideration for the year's Grammy awards, Yeezy is pissed!

And since Mr. West knows all too well that the Grammys have a history of bending the rules for other artists, he won't bother showing up to the ceremony if his friend and collaborator doesn't get the same treatment.

At the Oakland stop on his Saint Pablo tour, Ye addressed the crowd on the inner workings of the Recording Academy, and how they allegedly made exceptions for their eligibility rules — like Lady GaGa's 2010 Grammy performance.

Entering one of his now-expected stage rants, Kim Kardashian West's husband said:
