Frank Ocean had been hit with a nasty lawsuit from Chipotle for backing out of an ad campaign. Get deets inside and find out about his "official" name change.
The burrito specialists over at Chipotle Mexican Grill are furious with Frank Ocean for accepting nearly $212K for an ad campaign he backed out of. And backed out of for a silly reason.
According to TMZ, Chipotle filed suit in LA County over a $425,000 deal Frank signed to sing a remake of "Pure Imagination" for a new animated ad.
Unfortunately, Frank and Chipotle butted heads over the ad after the "Novacane" singer wanted THEIR company's logo removed from the end of THEIR ad...and they refused! Team Ocean fired off an email to Chipotle saying Frank was promised final say "over the recording and all promotional materials" and that they were in breach when they refused to remove their logo. Now, Chipotle is suing to get back the $212,500 advance they paid him.
We're hoping there's more to this lawsuit because we don't understand why Frank would expect Chipotle to put out a commercial that doesn't feature their own logo.
In other news, Frank has decided to give up his birth name, Christopher Edwin Breaux, and make "Frank Ocean" his legal name. Interesting...
Did Lil Mo and her husband Phillip Bryant call it quits? Our VERY credible source gave us an emphatic "Yes!". Check the deets inside…
We were tipped off that “R&B Diva” Lil Mo and her gospel singing husband Phillip Bryantallegedly called it quits. And now, our sources very close to the "R&B Divas: LA" star have confirmed. We're told Mo and Phillip have indeed split, and she didn't even allow him to film the new season of the show, which started taping this past December!
We're also told she has already moved on with amateur boxer Karl Dargan from Philly. He’s best known for winning the gold medal at the 2007 Pan Am Games in the Men’s Light Welterweight division.
Mo posted the picture above of her, one of her daughters and her "alleged" guy saying thanking him for all his help:
Happy 9th BIRTHDAY to GODISS-LOVE!! Wow. Time flies. But the way iLove YOU will never change. I cannot believe you are MY bABY!! Thank YOU @dynamiteko for not only help me surprise @4evananasmom but GOTTI was so shocked to see MOMMY she stood still the whole night. and facetimeD me after the party to make sure IT was real!!!! My gymnastics Barbie iLIVE for YOU!! My tiny lil fighter. She will TURN up and fight for what is right. IN a second. I love that about her FEARLESS!!!!!! My lor money magnet. She is honor roll and stay with a COIN!!
Mo seems to have addressed her split and new love life on Instagram saying:
it's so many people misguiding and misleading grown folks to believe they can take them to the next level. When TBH they don't exist outside of their own circle. Please be mindful OF ALL those you associate with. They may not be who they claim they are. Hence they are looking to suck the life out of you and take your talent for granted and you for advantage. Have a blessed one yo!!
Our sources confirm that not only are these two indeed dating, but we're going to see the entire situation unfold when the new season airs in a few months.
Lil Mo posts dude’s picture...A LOT...with no sign of her husband. She often thanks Karl for helping her with planning a party for her friend/stylist and for helping her Facetime with her kids:
Oh, and she recently had a message for “gospel singers” that have yet to be exposed:
Hmmm…was that a subtweet to her husband? He IS a gospel singer.
We reached out to Lil Mo about the situation, and have not yet received a response.

Nickelodeon actress Ariana Grande performed Whitney Houston’s “I Have Nothing” at the White House on yesterday for the "Women of Soul" concert organized by FLOTUS Michelle Obama.
The 20-year-old pop starlet (who was spotted kinda close with Chris Brown recently) sang before President Obama and Michelle Obama who were sitting in the front row.
She was then joined by Jill Scott, Patti LaBelle, Janelle Monae, Tessanne Chin and Melissa Etheride for a final performace of Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary."
